Advancis presents WinGuard X5 at Security Essen

The first WinGuard based on the new Advancis Open Platform

Langen, 15 August 2022 – Advancis Software & Services GmbH, one of the international market leaders in vendor-neutral Physical Security Information Management, presents its new WinGuard version X5 at Security Essen (20-23 September 2022). For the first time, this Major Release is based on the new software platform AOP (Advancis Open Platform) and thus offers amongst other features more flexibility through an open access for 3rd party applications.

Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solutions are used in many different verticals, e.g. in industry, finance and administration, data centers, correctional and forensic facilities, in transport and traffic, logistics or healthcare. Due to market trends such as increasing digitalization, data collection/analysis and the associated platform economy, new solutions and technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) or Internet of Things (IoT) must also be considered. After all, the number of actuators and sensors is constantly increasing. Advancis has recognized that WinGuard has to support this growth too – both in terms of new functions and interfaces as well as with regard to development speed and complexity. To be even better prepared for all these requirements, Advancis decided already in the year 2019 to start developing a fundamentally new open architecture platform called Advancis Open Platform (AOP). After completion, AOP now forms the basis for the new WinGuard version X5.

”AOP is strategically by far the most transformative product development in Advancis’ corporate history. This milestone paves the way for growth and expansion by creating an open platform that offers almost unlimited possibilities”, explains Jan Meiswinkel, CEO of Advancis, this fundamental innovation. “At Security 2022, we will present the new WinGuard version X5 which is based on this new AOP substructure”, Meiswinkel adds. „WinGuard – initially developed as a solution for specific use cases – has undergone a transformation over the years. A growing number of projects with more and more specific and partly very individual requirements has led to the fact that solutions have been implemented more and more generically”, explains Hartmut Nöll, CTO of Advancis, and adds: “With the Advancis Open Platform, we are now taking this path one step further and enable the user himself to extend the software with his own functionalities, interfaces and UI components, based on the existing concepts. The basis for all of that is a modern API which can be used in principle with any programming language. We are very excited with regard to the solutions of the certainly fast-growing developer community around AOP.”

At the Advancis stand (hall 8, stand 8A15), visitors can experience the advantages of the vendor-neutral PSIM platform WinGuard X5 in a real control center environment. In addition, two completely new software products are presented by Advancis: The Advanced Identity Manager (AIM) is a platform for consolidating existing access control and IT systems through centralized identity management. Minder, a software-as-a-service solution, enables companies to minimize their operational risk by comprehensively protecting people and assets.

The Advancis partners Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, Erich Keller, AG Neovo and VuWall will be co-exhibitors at the stand. The Advancis stand with a size of over 100 m² not only provides numerous operator stations, but also creates a real control center environment with two large state-of-the-art video walls from AG Neovo/VuWall as well as the intelligent incident management technologies from Hexagon and the professional control center desks from Erich Keller AG. Visitors can experience live not only the technical innovations, but also the comprehensive operating comfort offered by a perfectly equipped control room.

HACKATHONAMRING 2021

From 01 to 03 October 2021, Advancis was part of the Hackathonamring that took place at the Nürburgring/Germany. The event was hosted by the SPELL research project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in which Advancis is involved as a project partner. The hackers faced several challenges including the one for the SPELL use case “Complex Campus” within the research project.

Two teams successfully hacked a social media/Twitter interface that can be used to receive event messages about hazardous situations such as natural disasters in our control center system WinGuard as well as a “heat map” visualizing the volume of event messages on maps over time. Advancis would like to thank the event hosters as well as all hackers for their commitment and the interesting days at the Nürburgring!
