AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Eagle Eye Networks, Inc. today announced its flagship product, the Eagle

flexibility to store video in the cloud, on premise, or any combination
of the two.

The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS solves the historical obstacles to
cloud deployment, such as high bandwidth consumption, security/privacy
vulnerabilities, and limited camera selection. Eagle Eye delivers
Intelligent Bandwidth (News - Alert) Management™ and Complete Privacy Encryption™, and
supports a broad array of IP and analog cameras.
In other news today, Eagle Eye also announced its company debut. The
company's President and CEO Dean Drako was previously founder, President
and CEO of Barracuda Networks (News - Alert), an IT security company.
The Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System is an on-demand
secure VMS that is 100% cloud-managed. It offers anytime anywhere access
to live and recorded video, provides comprehensive mobile applications,
and consolidates multiple sites into a single view. The Eagle Eye
Security Camera VMS is currently deployed at a large variety of
customers, spanning large and small businesses, retail, commercial,
residential, and mixed use communities.
"The desire for on demand deployment, mobile viewing, instant alerts,
off-premise video storage, high reliability, and reduced cost of
ownership - including lower infrastructure investment - has been driving
companies to evaluate cloud-based video systems," said Drako. "However,
to date, excessive bandwidth requirements and security vulnerability
concerns have hindered broad adoption. We have spent the last 18 months
working extensively with customers to ensure our Eagle Eye Cloud
Security Camera VMS captures the full potential of the cloud and
overcomes these challenges."
Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System (VMS)
The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS gives companies the tools to meet
their security and business operations goals:
Mobile and web video access with critical alerts
Companies can view their live and historic video with audio from mobile
devices or any major web browsers from anywhere in the world. Businesses
can set up email and SMS alerts for important items spanning activity,
irregular activity, motion detection, camera malfunction, system
tampering, and more.
They can also easily specify appropriate permission levels for different
users to view and download video. The system is web/browser based, with
role based management, therefore access can be given to different
departments of the business for both security and operations management.
The VMS can be used for traditional security and loss prevention, as
well as to achieve broader operations and business goals, such as
training, verifying compliance, reducing slip and fall risk, optimizing
product placement, store quality, raising customer service levels, and
verifying operational hours.
Simple, fast on-demand deployment and support
Because Egle Eye's system is on-demand and cloud based, there are no
traditional DVRs, PCs, or software to buy and support. Eagle Eye's
on-premise bridge and cloud-managed video recording appliances require
no networking expertise, router configuration, or software installation.
All software is automatically upgraded and maintained for all customers.
When using Eagle Eye cloud storage, companies don't need to worry about
disk space, configurations, hardware failures, backups, or other IT
tasks. The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS uses a high reliability
redundant cloud-based architecture so the customer's video data is
The retention period and the number of cameras can be adjusted at any
point in time without having to purchase additional hardware or manage
hard disks. It's easy for customers to add cameras or sites when they
need too. Most cameras can be configured and installed with a single
Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS Maximizes Cloud Benefits while
Eagle Eye delivers several key technology breakthroughs to maximize
cloud benefits and eliminate drawbacks.
1. Compatibility with most IP and analog cameras
Eagle Eye works with most ONVIF compatible cameras and most analog
cameras. Resellers and businesses get maximum flexibility to utilize
existing cameras and select optimal new cameras.
2. Eagle Eye Cloud-Premise Flex Storage™
Eagle Eye gives customers the flexibility to adjust the portion
of video stored in the cloud and the portion stored on premise. Video
can be stored entirely on premise, entirely in the cloud, or in any
combination, based on the customer's security requirements, such as
eliminating the risk of evidence or system tampering, available
bandwidth, number of cameras, and the customer's application. The user
has the same smooth experience with real-time video search and access,
independent of the video storage location or user location.
3. Eagle Eye Complete Privacy Encryption™
Eagle Eye eliminates the security vulnerabilities commonly found in
other systems. There are no open ports to the internet. The video is
fully encrypted during transmission and fully encrypted at rest --
making evidence tampering nearly impossible.
4. Intelligent Bandwidth Management™
Earlier cloud recording systems faced challenges with bandwidth
consumption. Eagle Eye's unique, multi-layered bandwidth management
technology means the system works with both small and large camera
installations without requiring additional bandwidth. In addition the
Cloud-Premise Flex Storage provides a consistent user interface
regardless of where the video is stored.
Pricing and Availability
Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS is available immediately. Pricing starts
at $299 for an on-premise bridge appliance with a $4.99/camera/month
Security Professionals Select Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS
Several companies have already validated and deployed Eagle Eye Networks
Security Camera VMS including Royal Securities, Capital Factory, and
"We've deployed the Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS
at three locations recently. Eagle Eye was extremely easy to implement,
even for our installers who were experts on analog cameras rather than
IP cameras," said David Manento, President of Royal Securities. "Their
digital IP camera system was just plug and play - we didn't have to do
any routing configuration. The images are great and it just works - the
playback is always there when we need it. We manage video monitoring for
our customers, and this level of reliability is critical."
"Our Eagle Eye security camera system has 15
cameras across multiple floors of our 50,000 square foot facility. We
have had a couple of security related incidents occur and were able to
use the Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS to quickly and easily do the
forensic search to identify the people involved," said Sarah Cox (News - Alert),
Operations Manager at Capital Factory. "Eagle Eye fully encrypts the
video, so we know the content is completely secure - this is an absolute
requirement for us. Eagle Eye does all the video management, so I can
focus on other operations rather than worrying about managing system
software or hardware."
"We have a gated community, and given my own background
in security and software, I knew exactly what I wanted in a security
camera system for our entrance and exit. Eagle Eye Networks met my
criteria," said Phil Burks, Vice President of Stonegate Communities.
"Eagle Eye not only had the mobile access we needed, but its off-premise
recording means we don't have to worry about anyone tampering with our
video evidence. By having the Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS in place, we
are offering our residential community a greater feeling of protection."
