CNL PSIM Profile

By Brian Karas, Published Sep 06, 2017, 09:47am EDT

CNL has been one of the strongest advocates for PSIM, as one of the earliest entrants into the market releasing their command and control software before the 'PSIM' term was first coined. 

PSIM has not become as big as proponents hoped. However, CNL says they are profitable and things are going well.

CEO and founder Keith Bloodworth [link no longer available] spoke with IPVM about the current status of CNL, and the core features of their platform, which they say is used in the largest PSIM deployments in the industry so far.

For tier 1 command and control solutions PSIM has alot to offer in the convergence of information systems. Strong IT, electronic, and video knowledge are all interpolated and managed. It will be interesting to watch the technology course from companies such as CNL.
