Genetec, a 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program Winner for Best Video Data Storage Solution, has announced that Genetec™ Security Center, its flagship unified security platform, has been granted the SAFETY Act Designation and Certification by the U.S Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Built on an open architecture, Genetec Security Center technology combines video surveillance, access control, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), communications, and analytics in one unified system.
Genetec received this exclusive certification and designation after meeting stringent qualifications outlined in the SAFETY Act of 2002 (Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act), which provides incentives for the development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies and establishes liability limitations for claims resulting from an act of terrorism where Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies (QATTs) have been deployed.
“Having held the DHS SAFETY Act Anti-Terrorism technology designation for our video management system, Genetec Omnicast™, for the past several years, we take great pride in now having Security Center approved as the only unified security technology platform designated by the SAFETY Act,” said Alain Côté, Executive Vice President at Genetec, Inc.
“This U.S. government certification confirms liability protection to Genetec and its customers in the event of a terrorist act and offers further evidence to our government customers that Security Center meets the highest possible quality standards for video surveillance, access control, ALPR, communications, and analytics,” added Côté.

The 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Presentation Luncheon
Recognized for their Innovative Training and Education Programs, Outstanding Product Development Achievements and Exciting New Technologies to address the growing Homeland Security Threats our Nation is facing.
American Security Today was formed after careful reflection of 9/11 and its aftermath when the Department of Homeland Security was established and there was an immediate explosion of new products and solutions for what was perceived as an imminent second attack on primary targets in the United States.
As time moved forward from 9/11 itself and in recent years, the threats to our nation have evolved from a large scale 9/11 type attack to:
- Domestic and International Terrorist Attacks carried out by ‘lone wolves’ and coordinated individuals
- Cybersecurity breach attacks against our government agencies, financial institutions and critical infrastructure facilities
- Unprecedented urban violence
- Cultural shifts and societal media bias, which make it increasingly difficult to secure our nation in this constantly evolving threat environment.
These current circumstances have put forward another rapid expansion of new ideas, products and solutions to combat these ever changing challenges.
These changes have called for a new generation of security experts in the Homeland Security and Public Safety fields who need real time knowledge of our ever growing threats.
These experts include the Government at the Federal, State and Local levels as well as from Private Firms specializing in Physical Security, Port Security, Law Enforcement, First Responders, Military and Private Security responsible for implementing coordinated security measures to ensure our Nation’s Security and improve Public Safety.
AST focuses on Homeland Security and Public Safety Breaking News, the Newest Initiatives and Hottest Technologies in Physical & IT Security, essential to meeting today’s growing security challenges.
