Qognify has anounced the latest release of its video management system, Cayuga R14, which places a major focus on cybersecurity. With increased demand for IP solutions for video surveillance and other security-related duties in recent years, dealing with cybersecurity issues to safeguard installations has become of the utmost importance.
One of the best ways to reduce network vulnerabilities is to ensure communications between the different components of the solution are securely encrypted, hardening the core functionality of the system.
A comprehensive role-based access management element is in place to elevate the level of protection on offer, while meeting the compliance requirements of mission-critical environments.
Cayuga R14 implements secure architecture across the VMS to make certain all internal communications are safe and secure. State-of-the-art encryption is used for the export of videos, so the files can only be accessed by authorised persons.
Fundamental Active Directory (AD) optimisations ensure the login procedure for Cayuga and the administration of AD roles are aligned with industry standards. As Single Sign On is supported, there is no need to explicitly sign in to the Cayuga application; once the Windows login is successful, access is granted to the VMS.
Alongside the cybersecurity improvements, Cayuga offers the option to start the standard client in Viewer mode. This delivers most of the standard features in the client, even without a connection to the Cayuga server. The offline Client is also available in a light-weight portable version which can be distributed with exported video files.
Cayuga supports more than 5,000 different devices from more than 80 hardware manufacturers. New camera functions have been introduced to the smart drivers, giving users more choice when selecting the right hardware for a video security application.
Cayuga R14 is available now. Current customers with a valid Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) can download and install the update manually, or update an installed base via the built-in Auto Updater.
