Network service


Harper Morgan, the security management consultancy, has signed an exclusive partnership with Highlight to introduce its network and application performance services to the security market.

Wes Harper, pictured, founder and Managing Director of Harper Morgan says: “We are always on the lookout for new technology and Highlight is an ideal addition to the services delivered by corporate security teams, large security system integrators and security consultancies. As these providers deliver more and more systems based on distributed environments, with networked video and enterprise access control systems, it’s essential that the networks are robust. With Highlight, security professionals can monitor the underlying network performance to ensure all cameras and access control points are working effectively.”

Highlight is a cloud-based service that monitors the real-time status of multiple locations and services to deliver a summary of stability, load and health within a single pane of glass view. Security integrators can use Highlight to improve the performance of their sites, seeing bottlenecks or network overloads are identified; and sorted before an issue arises.

Security design consultants can also use Highlight at the design and implementation phase to certify that the networks and connections are robust enough to carry data from security systems.

Wes adds: “The security market likes proven technologies. By putting our name alongside Highlight’s considerable track record of over 17 years monitoring many thousands of networks and applications across the world, we can demonstrate our confidence that Highlight is a valuable addition to modern security implementations.”

Harper Morgan’s will launch Highlight software and professional services in October 2017, with Highlight featuring in its directory of technology.
