A new company has stepped up to tackle the challenge of security video recording with secure, cloud-based technology. Eagle Eye Networks has been working in the dark for the past 18 months so that when they revealed themselves on January 21st, they had fully developed their flagship product: the Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System (VMS).
Eagle Eye Networks is the brainchild of Dean Drako, who was the founder and former CEO of Barracuda Networks (News - Alert), an IT security company. Barracuda famously developed the IT security industry's first dedicated spam filter appliance, which was developed by Drako himself. Under his leadership, the company was earning over $200 million annually after only 9 years of operation. This combination of technical know-how and talented business experience means that Eagle Eye Networks has the leadership necessary to churn out an effective and profitable business model. Balance between business and tech skills is an increasingly popular trend in businesses, since they can easily integrate themselves in both internal and external company matters.
Almost half of all IT security decision makers end up becoming involved with video surveillance equipment that their company deems necessary. Installing, maintaining and customizing the hardware and software involved is both expensive and time consuming, which is a drain on company resources. However, since video security is a requirement for most business models to function, most companies simply bite the bullet on the cost.
The VMS offered by Eagle Eye Networks seeks to solve this problem by introducing cloud-based computing to the equation. Centralized management of the hardware and software means that companies that need video surveillance and security can simply subscribe to Eagle Eye Networks to handle most of the hardware. That way, businesses end up paying for little more than the subscription fees and the price of the actual cameras.
According to Drako, it is an “easy-to-use full featured solution that does not have the overhead and complexity of existing solutions.”
