Calegari told SSN Siemens plans to make aggressive moves in some vertical markets, especially in supplying security systems for hospitals and higher education customers. The company will also focus on IT/physical security integration.

“It is a necessity to migrate physical and electronic/IT security and come to not an overlap, but a better utilization of what these separate forms of security have done and come up with a better security plan,” Calegari says.

“We’re much more unified in the field and consistent in approaches and methodology and more aggressive in customer satisfaction (now),” says Calegari.
