Qognify, a leading provider of video and enterprise incident management solutions has announced the appointment of Brian Laurienzo as its Director of Transportation, Americas.

Qognify provides physical security software solutions to national rail operators and infrastructure owners, international airports and mass transit systems around the world. Earlier this month, Qognify launched a new solution – Qognify VMS.

This next-generation video management system enables transportation organisations to maximise the outcomes of their physical security strategies thanks to advanced integration capabilities, true enterprise-class functionalities and unparalleled low total cost of ownership.

With more than 20 years of expertise in video surveillance and physical security, Brian Laurienzo believe, Qognify provides the perfect tools to enable organisations in the transportation industry to detect and manage dangerous situations quickly, thus reducing their impact on people and operations: “Through the combination of enterprise-class video and incident management, Qognify is uniquely equipped to help transportation authorities respond consistently in case of an incident.”

Laurienzo adds: “Passengers expect public transport systems to be safe environments. The use of public transport depends heavily on the extent to which an organization succeeds in providing a consistently high level of safety and security. The video system plays a significant role as it represents the “eyes” of a transportation organisation.

“It is often the central point where events from other physical security systems such as video analytics, access control, and shot detection converge. This integrated view, which allows for better situational understanding and faster response, is one of the major strengths of Qognify’s portfolio.”

Jeremy Howard, VP Physical Security Sales, Americas, at Qognify, states: “Transportation organisations are facing mounting pressure from an increasing number of strict regulations, as well as from the number and complexity of incidents taking place on a daily basis. 

“As part of the Qognify Americas team, Brian will focus on expanding our transportation customer base by leveraging our next-generation solutions and long history of solving the industry’s most challenging use cases.”
