New Features for SECURITHOR 2.30 and MCB 2.30

SECURITHOR 2.30 and its companion app Mission Control are now officially available

Many new features were added to both SECURITHOR and Mission Control.
Check the change list below to know more or contact us to arrange a demo of SECURITHOR 2.30.

You can get an update of SECURITHOR as part of your annual support plan. Contact us to schedule this important update. Why are updates so important? The first reason is they are key moments to perform maintenance of your database.  The database is growing with each account and event you add. Like a car, your database needs an oil change from time to time.

Another important factor is to reduce the technological gap. Your SECURITHOR works in an environment that is changing: Windows updates are continuous, Camera manufacturers are adding new models, Smartphones have new OS, etc… Without updates, you risk falling behind and it will be hard to get back ahead. Especially with a live system that cannot stop. And it’s quite possible some features might stop working without warning as they get obsolete. Updates ensure you level your main monitoring tools with the environment it’s using.

But the best reason is all those new features. Look below, the list is long!

Major updates are published yearly with smaller ones in between. They are available with your annual support coverage. Why? For one they take an average of 8000 man-hours to produce so it’s a benefit only available to support plan holders. And as you might have an older version, we will need to make some manual arrangements to ensure compatibility. Plus, as we are always working on live systems so it’s important the update is made by someone with high knowledge of the product, who can do the update and the maintenance as fast as possible. Contact us at securithor@mcdi.com to make arrangements for support coverage and updates.
