Barracuda Networks Founder & Former CEO Dean Drako Launches Eagle Eye Networks
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Eagle Eye Networks, Inc. formally introduced itself today as a provider
of an on-demand security and operations video management system.
In other news today, Eagle Eye also announced that its flagship product,
the Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System (VMS), was
released to the channel after 18 months of development and successful
deployment with a large variety of customers.
Eagle Eye Networks is delivering the benefits of the cloud to the video
surveillance customer, such as on-demand deployment, centralized
management, high reliability, and lower TCO. At the same time it
eliminates historical obstacles to broad cloud deployment, such as
security/privacy vulnerabilities and high bandwidth consumption. The VMS
is compatible with most IP and analog cameras allowing maximum
flexibility for customers and resellers.
A 2013 survey of 283 IT security decision makers showed that 49% are
involved in supporting or selecting video security/surveillance
products. This illustrates the high overhead for installing,
configuring, and maintaining the hardware and software needed for video
"I started Eagle Eye Networks to bring the compelling advantages of
secure, on-demand, cloud based, video management and recording to
customers," said Dean Drako, President and CEO of Eagle Eye Networks.
"Further I wanted to deliver an easy-to-use full featured solution that
does not have the overhead and complexity of existing solution. This
was the same philosophy I had when I founded Barracuda Networks (News - Alert), and it
brought strong success to 150,000 businesses worldwide."
