Hikvision and Eagle Eye Networks Announce Technology Partnership
Benefits of Hikvision and Eagle Eye Networks’ partnership include ease of installation and more extensive technical support.
Hikvision USA, a provider of video surveillance products and solutions, and Eagle Eye Networks, a provider of cloud-based video surveillance, 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 this new technology partnership. It will enable a deeper, bi-directional integration between Hikvision’s products and Eagle Eye’s purpose-built cloud platform, which will have significant, direct benefits for systems integrators, according to the companies.
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, the companies say.
Advanced security 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 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.
