In a real world environment, Microsoft Global Security utilizes off-the-shelf MS technologies in its industry-leading Global Security Operations Centers (GSOCs) located in the United States, the United Kingdom and India.
Integrated Security Solution
Implementing and monitoring physical security for an enterprise the size of Microsoft can be cumbersome and expensive; traditional approaches are inefficient and difficult to manage on a global scale.
Microsoft combines its physical security infrastructure with IT practices using off-the-shelf software applications to create a streamlined, efficient, and cost-effective security solution that can be managed from anywhere in the world.
Microsoft’s Global Security Operations Centers showcase the "best practice" use of Microsoft products in a real world operational environment; and highlight best-in-class partner products based on Microsoft technologies.
Each GSOC monitors and responds to signal data and event notifications within its own region. Signal data includes intrusion, duress, environment and fire alarm information collected from all of the equipment related to physical security access control and monitoring. The GSOCs also facilitate communications and dispatch on-site security in response to events.
Our Global Security Operations Centers show firsthand how we leverage the SharePoint Workspace, InfoPath, Lync, and Bing Maps right -off the shelf- in remarkable ways to reduce operational costs and improve customer service worldwide.
