Reliance High-Tech and AMAG Technology form strategic partnership

RELIANCE HIGH-Tech, the independent security technology integrator, has formed a new strategic partnership with AMAG Technology. This is the latest move in the former’s ongoing strategy to give its customers access to Best-in-Class security solutions that create more intelligent buildings, while allowing host organisations to effectively transform their operations and offer building occupants the highest levels of protection.

AMAG Technology provides powerful and diverse unified security solutions. Headquartered in Hawthorne, California, at the heart of the company’s offer is Symmetry. This is a software platform that delivers a flexible end-to-end solution comprising access control and video surveillance, along with intrusion, identity, visitor and incident management.

The company’s analytics system, namely Symmetry Business Intelligence, also gathers and analyses reliable, actionable data to help end users make better business decisions that mitigate risk, reduce cost and ensure compliance. AMAG Technology also offers a mobile access control solution for those companies ready to transition to smart cards or use mobile phones to gain access to premises. 

“Symmetry is designed to be scalable and meet the needs of organisations across a wide range of vertical sectors, from small to medium-sized enterprises, multinational corporations and Government through to education, healthcare, finance and banking, Data Centres, the utilities, Critical National Infrastructure and logistics,” explained Mark Williams, director of sales for the EMEA region at AMAG Technology. “The combination of Symmetry’s pioneering technology and Reliance High-Tech’s security and IT expertise means that the latter’s customers can now benefit from a solution that offers protection for today, but also has the capacity to grow to meet the needs of tomorrow.”

AMAG Technology has received numerous plaudits for its technological innovation, with Newsweek recognising Symmetry as one of the Best Business Tools of 2019. Just as importantly, AMAG Technology is a Microsoft Gold Partner for Application Development and Symmetry, so is therefore able to meet the demanding expectations of IT team members keen to eliminate any network vulnerabilities.

End-to-end system

Able to be fully integrated with third party components and has a fully open application programming interface, one of the key advantages of Symmetry is that it’s a truly end-to-end system that features a wide range of advanced applications as standard. For Reliance High-Tech, this negates having to integrate numerous disparate components and platforms. When one particular component is updated, all other elements are taken into consideration. This ensures that the whole solution continues to work seamlessly at all times, guaranteeing reliability and maximum uptime for the end user in an easily deployed and maintained system. 

Alistair Enser, Reliance High-Tech’s CEO, commented: “AMAG Technology has an enviable reputation for what it has achieved with Symmetry and I’m delighted that we are now able to work together as partners. As the worlds of IT and security become more integrated, it allows us to fully implement our considerable expertise in both areas to provide a comprehensive unified security solution for the UK market. It’s all part of our commitment to solving business challenges through the application of intelligent solutions.”
