Where’s Bob? Cisco “face” heads to Hirsch
Bob Beliles, a very visible Cisco personality on the physical security stage, is now about to become a very visible Hirsch personality. I figure he has done what he needed to do to help Cisco build up sufficient forward momentum, and now he’s looking for a new challenge. Cisco enjoys the fruits of Bob’s tremendous efforts, I’m sure. And now we can all watch how Hirsch steps into the light that seems to follow Bob around.
Hirsch Electronics is different. The company looks and feels like your father’s access control and security vendor on the surface, but under the covers Hirsch is more like an IT company. No wonder Beliles saw an opportunity with Hirsch to work his magic.
Hirsch has been a trailblazer in security solutions that leverage IT technologies, as one of the first vendors to offer IP network-based interoperability solutions that link the physical security system with human resources systems, directory services, video systems, external watch lists, provisioning systems, command and control, and information security. With the addition of Bob to Hirsch’s executive team, I expect Hirsch will continue to deliver innovative technologies and solutions for quite some time to come.
