Magal Receives $8 Million in New Contracts

YAHUD, Israel, February 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ GM: MAGS) announced today that it had recently received a number of new contracts, primarily from customers in North America, amounting to $8 million.

The first contract for $5.2 million was for duress systems for prisons located in the United States. Duress systems are used in correctional facilities to provide a safe working environment for the prison staff. The contract includes upgrades to 11 existing sites, utilizing Magal's latest command and control displays as well as the installation of new systems in a further 8 sites. These new systems incorporate Magal's latest technologies, with improved architecture, higher reliability, advanced IP communications and Power over Ethernet (POE), which significantly improves the ease of deployment within a building.

A further $1 million in orders were for projects to secure the perimeters of two prisons in Canada, one with Magal's fence mounted system and the second with Magal's buried cable volumetric sensor.

A third order was received in the amount of $1.2 million, which was to incorporate a long-term video archiving system as an upgrade to a CCTV system which Magal installed last year in the Port of Mombasa, Kenya. Finally, additional contracts were received to protect two critical sites in Israel.

Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal S3, commented: "We are encouraged by the strong start to 2014. We are always pleased to receive follow-on orders from existing customers who trust our commitment to continuous product and technology improvement."

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
