NEC National Security Systems (NSS) was proud to be the platinum sponsor of the seventh annual American Security Today ‘ASTORS’ awards ceremony where the team received multiple awards for security-enhancing product solutions.
The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program honors distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.
“‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, the overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” said AST’s Editorial Director, Tammy Waitt.
NEC NSS received awards across a range of categories relating to security technology, in addition to the Extraordinary Leadership and Innovation Award. Awards were also received for Best Vehicle Security Entrance Control Solution, Best Facial/Iris Recognition Solution, Best Perimeter Protection System, Best Mobile Security Solution, Best Biometric Reader Solution, and Best Access Control & Authentication System.
NEC NSS received awards for the following technologies:
- Biometric Base Access Management (BAM)

- Access Control ID
- Mobile Way
- NEC Elastic Matching Service
- Intelligent Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (IPIDS)
These technologies leverage a variety of tools, including artificial intelligence, biometrics, optical fiber sensing and more, to recognize persons of interest, secure military installations and other government facilities, and provide greater efficiency in security practices.
Over two hundred representatives of law enforcement, public safety, and industry leaders, came together to honor the selfless service of those who stand on the front lines, and those who stand beside them – providing the capabilities and technologies to create a safer world for generations to come.
These awards are a clear indication that NEC NSS technology is second to none when it comes to equipping our nation with needed tools to advance public safety and protect the homeland. Whether it be our intelligent detection systems, secure and accurate face recognition technology, or one of our many other trusted solutions, NEC is the gold standard for using 21st-century tools to defend the homeland and orchestrate a brighter world.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which came out in force to discuss comprehensive collaborations between private and public sectors that have led to the development of intelligence and technologies which serve to protect our nation.
Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner (DEAC) Diane Sabatino, of the Office of Field Operations (OFO) for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), delivered the keynote address, speaking to the latest technology systems protecting our borders and homeland. AST was joined by former NYPD Police Commissioner, William Bratton, NYPD Chief of Department Kenneth Corey, FDNY Assistant Chief Joseph Jardin, a contingency of CBP Officers, FDNY members, and the NYPD Technical Assistance Response Unit (TARU).
We are proud of the NEC NSS team’s recognition and are looking forward to next year.
