Paramus, New Jersey, April 16, 2015 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that it is the winner of three awards for NICE Suspect Search, recognizing the solution’s innovation and functionality. The solution has already been recognized by five other award programs since its launch last year.

  • Security Sales & Integration 2015 Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award – Newly launched this year by Security Sales & Integration Magazine, the MVP Awards program was designated to exemplify the importance of new products and technologies to the success of security integration companies. Winners were selected based on a range of criteria including innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, and benefits to integrators and end users. Suspect Search won in the Video Analytics Category.
  • Security Industry Association’s (SIA) New Product Showcase (NPS) Award – This award recognizes innovative products, services and solutions in electronic physical security used in the protection of life and property in residential, commercial and institutional settings. Suspect Search won for Best Video Analytics Solution. Judges sought a solution that demonstrates the most impressive technological advances as shown through increased functionality, improved ease of use or cost reduction.
  • Casino Journal’s Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products Awards – Now in its eighteenth year, the Casino Journal Top 20 Award recognizes the most innovative technology offerings in the gaming industry. NICE Suspect Search was selected and named to the ‘Top 20’ list by an independent three-person judging panel of executives from the casino industry.

These awards have now been added to NICE Suspect Search’s growing list of accolades, which includes Government Security News’ (GSN) Homeland Security Awards for Best Intelligent Video Surveillance and Best Forensic Software; Campus Safety’s BEST award; Security Trophy for “Innovative Tool and Application” of the Year 2014 in Europe; and ASIS Accolades 2014.

NICE Suspect Search quickly locates and retraces the movements of a person of interest within a video surveillance network. It automatically filters out 95 percent of irrelevant images and within minutes can provide a sorted display of images that best match the target. Once the target is identified, users can track that person’s movements from location to location and access all relevant recordings.

“NICE Suspect Search is the only solution on the market that enables a security operation to search for and find a specific person across multiple cameras and locations in a matter of minutes. The multiple awards this solution has won attests to the impact it has made.
