Johnson Controls Leverages Cloud, artificial Intelligence as Part of Strategic Alignment for Access Control and Video Solutions Units

April 22, 2019

Johnson Controls announced that it has combined its Tyco Access Control and Video Solutions businesses into a single operational unit to more closely align the two disciplines and optimize future technology developments for cyber resiliency, business efficiency and intelligence.

The combination of the two units will enable strategic organizational focus on four key technology pillars: cybersecurity, cloud solutions, unification and automation, areas identified as critical for an organization’s security and business operations. The global realignment of teams in engineering, product management and customer support will provide Tyco Access Control and Video Solutions with a more holistic picture of how best to address customers’ new security and operational challenges while optimizing and expanding on these core pillars throughout the Tyco portfolio.

“The growing demands on security as a critical organizational business function is driving our strategic focus on these core areas, enabling us to provide customers with a scalable, secure and intelligent ‘single pane of glass’ approach to system management,” said Eli Gorovici, general manager, Tyco Access Control and Video Solutions for Global Security Products. “Leveraging our leadership positions in cybersecurity, cloud solutions, unification and automation will allow us to continue to innovate and provide to the market solutions that offer the highest levels of efficiency, functionality and ease of use.”

The new Tyco Access Control and Video Solutions unit will focus on growth in key technology areas, such as cloud platforms and AI-based automation tools via the company’s investment in Deep Learning technology. This will allow organizations to better utilize resources and produce actionable intelligence for their businesses. 

Johnson Controls and its Tyco security solutions are also supported by a dedicated Global Product Security Team charged with creating and maintaining cyber resiliency in the Tyco technology portfolio throughout a product’s lifecycle. Within the Tyco brand family exist deep, native integrations between various management platforms and devices, including products that unify access control and video operations, such as the victor Unified Management System, the Kantech INTEVO Integrated Security Platform and the Tyco Complete Security Solution.
