Editors' Choice: Symmetry™ Software for High-Performance Security

May 1, 2008

The editorial staff rates AMAG Technology's Symmetry software

Symmetry™ Security Software

(Based on a 5-star scale)

Symmetry Security Management Systems, from Torrance, CA-based AMAG Technology Inc., provide powerful, integrated solutions for any organization that requires automated security—from small offices needing a few cardreaders to large companies spread across multiple sites and countries. Symmetry allows users to configure, monitor, and control security applications, which might include setting up cardholders, assigning rights, producing reports, monitoring alarm conditions, and controlling hardware (such as cameras and readers). An extensive range of standard features offers ease in customizing the system to exact requirements. Symmetry Professional, Symmetry Enterprise, and Symmetry Global (supporting needs from small to large organizations) feature true client/server solutions; each user's PC communicates over an organization's LAN, WAN, or Internet with a single-server machine that holds the system's databases. Since the software solution has been designed to use minimal bandwidth, an existing network can be used, resulting in little or no additional networking costs.

Editors' Note: As part of this review, the editorial staff interviewed an institutional (higher-ed) user that has used AMAG's Symmetry software since January 2008.
