Magal Security Systems awarded $9.0 million project for a African Seaport Security System

Magal Security Systems, Ltd., a leading international provider of comprehensive physical, video, and access control security products and solutions, as well as critical site management, announced the award of a $9.0 million project for the renewal of the integrated security system and system upgrades for a major seaport in Africa.

The award, from a long-term customer, is for a three-year project which includes the renewal of IT and communication infrastructure, along with a significant upgrade to the port’s security system. The award also provides for the installation of an extensive array of cameras with day and night vision capabilities and automated gates to improve port efficiency, along with a new control room. The control room will feature the latest version of Magal’s state of the art command and control software (PSIM), FORTIS, that will integrate all the security devices and systems throughout the seaport.

Magal’s dynamic FORTIS command and control capabilities provide holistic integration of security and operational systems into one comprehensive, high availability platform in the control room. The new version of FORTIS fully integrates video management, advanced debriefing capabilities, video tracking, and privilege and access hierarchy, allowing operators and authorized personnel to rapidly respond to real-time events, recognize threats and identify suspicious individuals.

Mr. Dror Sharon, Chief Executive Officer of Magal, said, “This award highlights two key strategic goals for Magal in 2020 – increase our recurring revenues and expand project revenues in key territories where we have not been as impacted by COVID-19 restrictions. Africa has been an important region for Magal this year. We have landed several new critical infrastructure projects and expanded contracts with existing customers. This upgrade and maintenance project award for a major seaport is an endorsement of the trust and confidence that Magal’s customers have in our capabilities, technology and services. Our teams on the ground and our differentiated solutions, based on advanced technology and software, continue to deliver a competitive advantage to Magal in this crucial and dynamic region.”
