RISCO Group USA Announces Strategic Partnership with Milestone Systems

Companies Build Domestic Alliance for Integrated Security Solutions.

Baltimore, MD (June 22, 2009) - RISCO Group USA and Milestone Systems today
announce their domestic partnering agreement, integrating RISCO Group USA's advanced security management system with Milestone's open platform IP video software. The newly developed integration solution combines Milestone's XProtect IP video open platform as a recording engine for the SynopSYS(TM) Integrated Security and Building Management System. SynopSYS provides site management and control from one simple interface, using intuitive synoptic maps, allowing command and control of security, video monitoring, fire detection, access control and other building automation systems.

"Working as a Milestone Solution Partner enables us to offer an integrated end to end
solution for video surveillance," said Len Friedman, President and CEO, RISCO Group USA. "Milestone's open architecture platform provides quality image capture and seamless interoperability with SynopSYS."

The collaboration complements RISCO Group's solution by integrating video surveillance input from IP cameras into SynopSYS. With SynopSYS, live video events serve as triggers for real-time alerts and automated actions on any integrated security system or device. Likewise, any event in SynopSYS, such as an access alarm, can trigger recording of video from the relevant IP camera through a software-based interface.

"RISCO Group has a state-of-the-art, sophisticated IP solution that provides a perfect
synergy of innovative technology with the Milestone video surveillance integration," said
Raziel Bareket, Sales Manager for Benelux and Israel at Milestone Systems. "This is an
excellent match. System integrators can offer a non-proprietary building management
system, implementing a best-of-breed solution that adds more comprehensive functionality. This is truly a win-win situation from a technical, commercial and customer perspective."

Using the Milestone open platform, SynopSYS can integrate with unlimited numbers and models of IP cameras, and provide an ideal management system for any type or size of project. With its proven experience in installations for the commercial, industrial, and military sectors, SynopSYS now offers full flexibility for integrators in selecting a complete platform for security and building management that is video enabled.
