London, UK and Amsterdam, NL – Hikvision UK & Ireland, the world’s largest manufacturer of video surveillance products and solutions, and Eagle Eye Networks, the leading global provider of cloud-based video surveillance solutions, today announced a technology partnership to deliver customers a seamless and cyber secure cloud video surveillance solution.
Dean Drako, CEO and founder of Eagle Eye Networks stated, “we are pleased to expand our global relationship with Hikvision by partnering with Hikvision UK to serve customers in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland seeking a more cyber-secure surveillance solution.”
Eagle Eye’s Camera Cyber Lockdown blocks cameras from communicating with the Internet, blocks attacks from reaching cameras, and will not allow any Trojans ex-filtration. The Camera Cyber Lockdown feature greatly increases the security of video surveillance systems, reduces risk, and minimizes camera maintenance.
While the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS works with hundreds of manufacturer’s cameras, the Hikvision UK partnership is a valuable benefit to customers who don’t have the IT resources to constantly monitor and address cyber threats entering their network through devices attached to their surveillance system.
“We are also excited about the partnership with Eagle Eye Networks”, stated Jens Berthelsen, Global Partner Alliance Manager for Hikvision Europe. “Eagle Eye Networks is the leader in secure, cloud-based video surveillance solutions and the combination of our cameras with their cloud provides great scalability and price/performance.”
Eagle Eye Networks’ investments to build a global footprint of Data Centres has enabled its customers to easily deploy surveillance video systems at their sites around the world while maintaining consistency and cyber security.
The United Kingdom Preferred Technology Partnership announcement follows the recent news of Hikvision USA and Eagle Eye Networks working together to integrate HD-TVI camera technology in to the Eagle Eye Security Cloud VMS, enabling customers and channel partners to reduce operating costs by utilising existing coaxial cabling while upgrading to high-definition video surveillance systems.
Rishi Lodhia, Eagle Eye Networks’ Managing Director for EMEA, is leading the Eagle Eye Networks growth program in the region and noted the extraordinary alignment between Hikvision UK’s and Eagle Eye Networks’ reseller programs. “The Hikvision dealers in the UK are an extremely capable group of industry professionals and they’re very attentive to cyber security and GDPR compliance. The use of Hikvision cameras and Turbo recorders with Eagle Eye Networks’ cloud bridges and subscriptions is a future-proof marriage.”
