Axis Communications, Avaya, EMC and Genetec collaborate to develop a secure surveillance platform that delivers surveillance at scale. 
 
CHELMSFORD, Mass.-- Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, in collaboration with Avaya, EMC, and Genetec have teamed up to create a secure surveillance platform, which is the security industry’s first validated and documented reference architecture for surveillance that secures video from the device to the network, VMS and into storage. The reference architecture offers customers video surveillance at scale and provides them with the confidence they have come to expect from the market leaders in physical security.
 
Traditionally, the industry was focused on hardening individual devices while this solution brings the individual hardened components from each company together to create a stronger ecosystem solution. The platform offers a more secure solution that delivers scalability and reliability for enhanced security management, while also providing a configuration guide, best practices and an easy, proven setup for a higher level of protection against cybersecurity threats. The solution will also be continuously updated with new security features as they become available.
 
“As organizations increasingly move to IP-based video surveillance technology, the need for a secure infrastructure is critical. The industry is well positioned to deliver on this thanks to the new, cyber security enhanced solution, developed by Avaya, Axis Communications, EMC and Genetec” said Hugh Hayes Sr., President, Alliance Technology Group LLC. “In today’s environment, smart cities and enterprises are under increased pressure to deploy robust and intelligent security technology to allow communities to be more vigilant. Whether your enterprise is a federal entity, state municipality or commercial business, our team of cyber and physical security experts can work with you to implement security solutions that elevate the safety of our communities and information.”
 
“Axis Communications is proud to have collaborated with Avaya, EMC and Genetec to develop a platform that is advanced and validated, said John Bartolac, Senior Manager, Industry Segments Team and North America Cyber Strategy, Axis Communications, Inc. “When putting a secure device on their network many organizations demand product flexibility, scalability and reliability, which is what the secure surveillance platform offers. Additionally, Axis provides a higher level of authentication and a more secure communication path for video data.”
 
“The growing number of IP-enabled security devices and applications connecting to networks are posing new security challenges. There is a critical need for effective IT solutions to manage multi-service networks and mitigate risk,” said David Passamonte, product manager, Avaya Networking. “Working with Axis Communications, EMC and Genetec is an honor as we have produced an offering that meets today’s needs by reducing the possibility of a cybersecurity breach while improving flexibility, end-to-end reliability and ease-of-use.”
 
“Our joint customers and partners are demanding more secure surveillance solutions. EMC’s collaboration with Avaya, Axis Communications and Genetec will help enable customers to deploy surveillance more securely,” said Ken Mills, CTO, Surveillance and Security, EMC Corporation.
 
"Genetec places a high degree of importance on the Security of Security and we are always looking to work with like-minded partners that share our passion for both physical and cyber security," said Philippe Ouimette, Director, Strategic Alliances at Genetec, Inc. "Our collaboration with Avaya, Axis Communications and EMC is an important step to securing both the data and the complex network it resides on."
