AMAG Technology's Symmetry Access Control System Integrates with Milestone System's XProtect Video Surveillance

Torrance, Calif. — Nov. 18, 2014 – AMAG Technology, a worldwide provider of complete end-to-end security management solutions for access control and video management, has integrated its Symmetry access control system with Milestone Systems’ XProtect IP video surveillance system. 

The plug-in is compatible for Symmetry V7.0.1 and V8 for Business, Professional, and Enterprise versions, and for Milestone XProtect Corporate and XProtect Enterprise 2014 versions.

“In continuing our commitment to our customers, AMAG selects best-in-industry partners to align and integrate technologies to offer the best options to our end users,” said AMAG Technology, Senior Product Manager-Video Jim Murray. “The Symmetry integration to Milestone’s XProtect video surveillance system offers end users the best of both worlds — Symmetry’s robust access control with XProtect’s powerful video surveillance.

"Customers demanding an advanced feature set for optimum security performance and functionality will find the integration surpasses security requirements for most markets.” 

Reinier Tuinzing, strategic alliance manager, Americas, at Milestone Systems, added, "Milestone is pleased that AMAG continues to be part of the Milestone Solution Partner Program to support the AMAG Symmetry 8 integration with our XProtect 2014 release.
