Northland Controls Launches Desiray, A Dynamic End to End Interoperable Security Solution as a Managed Service

Apr 11, 2024

Milpitas, CA, April 11, 2024 — Northland Controls announces the launch of Desiray, the first full-scale dynamic end-to-end security solution as a managed service. This innovative offering is designed to provide organizations with a seamless and robust security solution, covering every aspect from infrastructure to day-to-day operations to system maintenance, interoperability, and health checks.

As the threat landscape continues to evolve, the need for a holistic and proactive approach to physical security has never been more critical—especially for the mid-size and rapidly growing companies who cannot afford to build large security departments. Northland Controls was first to introduce GSOC as a service to the industry and after three years of creating Desiray in stealth mode is successfully providing a security program as a fully managed service.

Key Features of Desiray include:

  1. Hosting
    Cloud-based hosting of access control, video management, critical event systems.

  2. Interoperability across the entire security ecosystem
    A library of drivers breaks down silos and connects to an interoperable web of corporate security technologies, intelligence sources, human resources and travel platforms.

  3. Global Security Operations Center
    24/7, best-in-class monitoring, response and coordination of events

  4. Critical Event Management
    Curated threat intelligence from 20,000 sources, tailored notification and response coordinated by Northland's GSOC.

  5. System Maintenance
    Northland engineers perform system upgrades, patches, cyber hardening, and routine system maintenance to optimize performance.

  6. Preventative Maintenance
    Detailed on-going audits of configuration of all devices, including IP information and network configuration.

  7. Break Fix
    End-point devices are constantly monitored for malfunctions and brought back online quickly with the industry's best, global service response.

Northland Controls has an established and proven history delivering security as a managed service and was first to offer Global Security Operations Center as a Service in 2014. By offering a fully managed security ecosystem, Northland Controls aims to alleviate the burden on organizations, allowing them to focus on their core activities while maintaining a robust security posture.

“Desiray is the natural evolution of our established Managed Services offerings and a response to what we have been hearing from our clients and seeing in the market for more than 15 years,” said Pierre Trapanese, Northland Controls CEO. While we have many managed services customers, we have successfully delivered Desiray’s full suite of services to multiple clients in stealth mode. Now that we have worked through the challenges and know it’s possible, we are ready to launch it to the rest of the marketplace and fill the gap, especially for those companies that are looking for a robust and cost-effective alternative to building and operating a robust security program.”
