Qognify launches Qognify VMS

Issue 2 2022 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

Qognify launched its new video management software, Qognify VMS. Qognify VMS is designed to meet the specific physical security needs of organisations around the globe. It is based on the proven technology of Qognify's successful video management software Cayuga, which is used by many customers in thousands of security projects worldwide.

As a next-generation VMS, Qognify VMS combines the powerful core of an enterprise-class VMS with added values such as low total costs of ownership, business process support, advanced ecosystem integrations and cloud readiness.

One of the key requirements of modern video surveillance systems are flexible deployment options. While many organisations still rely on keeping sensitive data and systems on-premises, others are moving towards a corporate cloud-first strategy, which also includes physical security applications. For this reason, Qognify VMS offers the possibility to store video data in the cloud. This enables customers to keep the hardware footprint small, scale storage space quickly and benefit from the advanced resiliency of cloud technology.


Steve Shine, Qognify.

Steve Shine, CEO of Qognify, explains the company's cloud strategy: "While cloud-based physical security solutions have been on the rise in small and medium businesses for some time, the adoption rate in enterprise organisations was slower due to more complex system environments and demanding infrastructure requirements. However, rapidly evolving technologies and increasing network bandwidth are beginning to advance the usage of cloud in this segment. This is why we are now launching Qognify VMS with advanced cloud storage capabilities. At the same time, we are working on further solutions that enable customers to benefit even more from the advantages of cloud technology in the near future. “ On the other hand, to make on-premises deployments as easy as possible for partners and customers, a wide range of turnkey hardware solutions is available for Qognify VMS. The built-to-spec servers minimise the risks in planning, ensure optimal performance, accelerate rollouts and allow for one-stop sourcing. All units come with a comprehensive five-year warranty to protect the investment for years to come.

Qognify VMS helps organisations maximise the outcomes of their physical security strategies. One of the key elements to achieve this are its powerful bi-directional integrations with many other solutions such as access control, intrusion detection and video analytics. But, according to Shine, this is only the first step for Qognify VMS to leverage the potential of a physical security ecosystem: “Our goal is to further increase the value for our customers by bringing our physical security and enterprise incident management applications even closer together for an improved situational understanding and an even faster and more targeted response.”


Compared to Cayuga, Qognify VMS comes with a number of significant improvements, one of them being the optimisation of web technologies used in the product. Carsten Eckstein, product owner, Qognify VMS, explains: "With our decision to make Qognify VMS ready for the cloud, the requirements to process and display web-based content in the product are growing. For this reason, we have decided to fundamentally overhaul a number of technologies such as the built-in browser component, to enable an even more seamless user experience for future integrations."

For EMEA and APAC, Qognify VMS comes in three product packages that reflect the typical requirements of different project profiles. While Qognify VMS Basic covers the needs of smaller and less complex surveillance projects at a very attractive price, the flexible Advanced package is designed for larger and more complex projects. Finally, the Infinity package fulfils all true enterprise requirements and includes a multitude of features at no additional cost.

Qognify VMS is available as of today. Qognify Cayuga customers are entitled to upgrade to Qognify VMS at no extra cost if they hold an active SMA.
