Qognify, the leader in big data solutions for physical security and operations, today announced that the Government Security News’ 2017 Airport, Seaport, Border Security Awards has nominated its collaboration with Navi Mumbai Police as Most Notable Critical Infrastructure Protection Program.

For the second consecutive year, Qognify has been recognized by GSN for its major international project deployments. At the core of the Navi Mumbai safe city project is Qognify Situator, an advanced Situation Management platform, and the Qognify’s Video Management Solution, which controls numerous surveillance cameras throughout the new city that has been developed to handle the population overflow from Mumbai.

Speaking at the time the project was announced in April 2017, Mr. Soma Vijayakumar, CIDCO (the agency established for managing the new city) commented: “The Navi Mumbai security program goes far beyond a CCTV system. It is a smart solution that integrates video, emergency response, traffic control, license plate identification and more. Qognify is the core important element of this platform, providing a solution which is among the most modern and advanced available anywhere.” He now adds: “We are very proud to have been nominated with Qognify in the prestigious GSN award program”.

Moti Shabtai, Qognify’s CEO and President: “Being recognised for the work we do in collaboration with our customers around the world is one of the greatest accolades we can receive. Through initiatives to help police to maintain law, order and safety in the new township, as well as our mass-transit project with Navi Mumbai Metro, we are proud to be making an important contribution to the development of this new safe city.”

Qognify was also recognised in the Best Video Surveillance Storage Product category for its VisionHub Qblock that combines the power of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, Dell EMC Isilon storage and Qognify’s VisionHub Video Management Solution to create a best-of-breed, large-scale solution.
