Hikvision announces technology partnership with cloud-based video surveillance provider
CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA and AUSTIN, TX March 15, 2017 Hikvision USA Inc., the North American leader in innovative, award-winning video surveillance products and solutions, and Eagle Eye Networks, Inc., the leading cloud-based video surveillance provider, today announced a technology partnership to deliver customers a seamless and cybersecure cloud video surveillance solution.
Hikvision and Eagle Eye are expanding an established business relationship with its new technology partnership. It will enable a deeper bi-directional integration between Hikvision’s world class products and Eagle Eye’s purpose-built cloud platform, which will have significant, direct benefits for systems integrators. Those benefits include ease of installation and even more extensive technical support. Integrators and their end user customers will also reap the benefits associated with cloud platforms: lower up-front costs, flexibility, scalability, cyber-secure remote management and flexible on-premise cloud storage.
“We are pleased to be working with a partner so clearly focused on cybersecurity and ease of use for our integrator partners,” said Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA Inc. “Eagle Eye’s Cloud Security Camera VMS provides businesses with a true cloud solution that is cyber-secured with multiple levels of encryption and advanced security features."
Those features include Eagle Eye’s recently announced Camera Cyber Lockdown, which blocks cameras from communicating with the Internet, blocks attacks from reaching cameras, and will not allow any Trojans ex-filtration. The feature greatly increases the security of video surveillance systems, reduces risk, and reduces camera maintenance.
While the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS works with hundreds of manufacturers’ cameras, the Hikvision partnership is particularly valuable for customers who don’t have in-house IT resources. The combined Hikvision/Eagle Eye technology is particularly well suited to multi-site enterprises with small camera counts at each site, including retail, banking, and quick serve restaurants.
Eagle Eye Network’s CEO Dean Drako stated “Hikvision’s leadership team has been exemplary to work with for making a great customer solution. They really understand the benefits of solving installation and cyber problems in a way that makes it easier for the customer. Hikvision's global presence aligns with Eagle Eye's global data center investment."
Eagle Eye Networks’ global footprint of data centers enables its customers to easily deploy surveillance video systems at their sites around the world while maintaining consistency and cybersecurity.
Hikvision will exhibit its enterprise-level security solutions at ISC West, Booth 18037, in Las Vegas, April 5-7, 2017. Eagle Eye Networks will be exhibiting in Booth 23109.
