Magal Security Systems, a leading provider of comprehensive physical, video, and access control security products and solutions, announced Monday that an international consortium led by Magal was awarded a $20 million contract for the supply, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of a state-of-the-art integrated security system to secure the principal premises of a governmental body in Africa.

Magal's direct share in the project is estimated at $10 million and may increase during the course of the project, the company said.

The state-of-the-art security system includes a comprehensive range of Magal's proprietary products and platforms. At its core is FORTIS, Magal's Physical Security Information Management system, which supports an underground Perimeter Intrusion Detection System along with Senstar's Symphony Video Management Software including Intelligent Video Analytics capabilities. The project will also feature Electronic Access Control hardware and software and a secured communication network that supports the system's integration and operation, according to Magal.

The company's CEO, Dror Sharon, said, "Magal has won new project business in Africa during 2020 despite the ongoing challenges presented by COVID. We are proud of our team and partners, who successfully collaborated in winning this competitive bidding process. The project is an opportunity to showcase our professionalism and demonstrate the capability and performance of our proprietary technology. Magal looks forward to extending our relationship with this high-profile customer and leveraging the project to expand our presence in the region."

The Israeli company says it has delivered its products as well as tailor–made security solutions and turnkey projects to hundreds of customers in over 80 countries under some of the most challenging conditions.
