Verkada introduces the next-gen video surveillance solutions
San Mateo-based Verkada, a company built on the mission of simplifying surveillance for modern enterprises, has announced the addition of two new, plug-and-play cameras to its existing product line: the D40 Mini Dome and the D80 Fisheye Camera. Similar to the existing camera line, these added form factors send motion-triggered video metadata to the cloud and store up to 120 days of retained footage in unit.

This "hybrid cloud" approach solves a series of deep-rooted problems in the video security space—spanning across infrastructure limitations, to hidden management overhead such as the cost of hardware maintenance over time. Three of the most prevalent obstacles faced by those who manage traditional surveillance systems include maintenance of cameras across a multitude of sites, the inability to locate footage quickly and efficiently and the security risks that open ports introduce. These issues are all elegantly dealt with by the Verkada solution, enabling massive efficiency gains for users.

Verkada stands at the forefront of innovation in the industry and hurdles over the challenges of archaic infrastructure. Its cameras include on board solid state storage, so footage from every location is streamlined into a software platform accessible via desktop, tablet or mobile. This simplified process of live video monitoring grants users the ability to leverage the cloud for remote-access functionality. The worry of security risks and potential hacks are also eliminated, as Verkada systems have no open ports and encrypt all data in transit using HTTPS/SSL.

"My team has a higher level of confidence in keeping our facilities safe because Verkada is easy to use. I have the confidence level in it because I know it’s secure," said William Weber, Sesquehanna County Bank, Chief Information Officer.

By focusing on the evolving capabilities of software, Verkada has built an end-to-end solution that is designed to become more sophisticated over time. In addition to the user-friendly software interface, the cloud service license also enables Verkada to push automatic updates to firmware and software. This ensures that security updates and new feature rollouts are always at the fingertips of Verkada customers.

In less than a year, the software-driven system has been adopted by over 400 customers across all verticals—adding an average of 14 new customers per week. Those responsible for physical and cyber security across organizations in local government, education, hospitality and retail have chosen Verkada to protect people, secure facilities and assets, and gain analytics to improve the efficiency of their operations.
