Milestone Systems has launched the new Milestone Kite Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS).
It complements XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as Milestone’s newest cloud offering.
Milestone Kite says it “is a simple, secure, and scalable video management system (VMS) cloud solution for small to medium-sized businesses, where XProtect on AWS is optimized for the enterprise market”.
Milestone Kite, powered by Arcules, is a simple, secure, automatically updating, scalable, and cost-effective cloud solution.
It is the ideal choice for single or distributed multisite organizations that need an easy way to centrally manage all their sites in one unified system.
Businesses and enterprises with high value, less complexity, and multiple diverse geographic locations such as banks, retail chains, schools, and residential buildings, will soon find that Milestone Kite is the ideal choice for their security needs.
Thomas Jensen, CEO of Milestone Systems, said that Milestone the product is easy to deploy and has low bandwidth requirements which is also scalable.
He added: “Milestone understands and recognizes the importance of offering a range of hybrid-cloud solutions to address different segments of the security market.
“We have been making investments in VSaaS offerings for many years to prepare for the future.
“As more small- to mid-sized organizations search for a cloud-based VMS that is easy to deploy, simple to use, has low bandwidth requirements, is scalable across locations, and is secure — Milestone Kite becomes the most logical choice.
“Milestone and Arcules have now joined forces to help serve this segment of the market.
Andreas Pettersson, CEO of Arcule, added: “Arcules was created to be at the forefront of innovation with a focus on building a powerful, easy-to-use new cloud offering for smaller organizations or larger organizations geographically dispersed with satellite or remote locations.
“What we’ve achieved is a cloud-native solution that is future-proof, scalable, and characterized by simplicity.
“Milestone customers no longer need to physically visit multiple sites or spend time on maintenance, they can simply install the gateway and be done.
“Kite will automatically integrate access control data with the incoming video data to enable access-based video verification, view camera feeds, and obtain immediate situational awareness.”
