Hopkinton, Mass., Tuesday, April 24, 2007 - 

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) received a Best of Kentucky Award for its EMC Physical Security solution. The DJJ was honored today at the Best of Kentucky Awards Ceremony Luncheon in Lexington, Ky.

"We're honored to receive this award," said Bridget Skaggs Brown, commissioner of DJJ. "We strive to provide a safe and secure environment for our employees and those entrusted to our care. This award is testament to video surveillance as a powerful, preventative tool."

Based on EMC software, services and EMC CLARiiON® storage systems, this IP-based network video surveillance system stores and enables DJJ staff to quickly and efficiently search and analyze terabytes of video and data from physical security devices such as surveillance cameras. Not only did the DJJ dramatically improve surveillance operations and IT procedures, but it has also reduced employee time spent searching for videos and information and reduced surveillance system costs by nearly 50 percent.

"Previously, the majority of our video surveillance relied on closed circuit television cameras that fed analog images to VHS tape for storage," said Michael Dossett, Deputy Commissioner at the DJJ. "Now, with faster, more efficient access to videos, we're able to ensure the highest level of care to the youth in the facilities."
