Data-driven video technology solutions from Milestone Systems continue to expand. it new Milestone Kite Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) complements XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS). While XProtect on AWS is optimized for the enterprise market, Milestone Kite is a simple, secure, and scalable VMS cloud solution for small to medium-sized businesses.
Milestone Kite, powered by Arcules, is the ideal choice for banks, retail chains, schools, and residential buildings with high value and little complexity.
“Milestone understands and recognizes the importance of offering various hybrid-cloud solutions to address different security market segments. We have been investing 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 market segment,” said Thomas Jensen, CEO of Milestone Systems.
“Arcules was created to be at the forefront of innovation, focusing on building a powerful, easy-to-use new cloud offering for smaller or larger organizations geographically dispersed with satellite or remote locations. We’ve achieved a cloud-native solution that is future-proof, scalable, and characterized by simplicity. Milestone customers no longer need to visit multiple sites or spend time on maintenance physically; 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,” said Andreas Pettersson, CEO of Arcules.
