Milestone flies a Kite for small businesses

Issue 7 2022 Surveillance

Milestone Systems continues to increase its range of on-premises, hybrid-cloud and cloud-native data-driven video technology solutions. The new Milestone Kite Video Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS) complements Milestone’s existing XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Milestone Kite is a simple, secure and scalable VSaaS solution for small to medium-sized businesses, where XProtect on AWS is optimised for the enterprise market.

Milestone Kite is the ideal choice for single or distributed organisations that need an easy way to manage all their sites centrally, in one unified system. Providing continuous access to new features with little or no maintenance effort, it is designed for businesses and enterprises with high value, less complexity and multiple geographic locations, such as banks, retail chains, schools and residential buildings. Powered by the Arcules cloud platform, Milestone Kite is a simple, secure, scalable and cost-effective cloud video management solution with integrated video analytics and access control functions. It will be available in early 2023.

“Milestone understands and recognises the importance of offering a range of hybrid-cloud solutions to address different segments of the security market. We have been making investments in VSaaS offerings for many years to prepare for the future. As more small to mid-sized organisations search for a cloud-based video technology solution that is easy to deploy, simple to use, has low bandwidth requirements, is scalable across locations and is secure, Milestone Kite becomes the most logical choice. Milestone and Arcules have now joined forces to help serve this segment of the market,” said Thomas Jensen, CEO of Milestone Systems.

“Arcules was created to be at the forefront of innovation, with a focus on building a powerful, easy-to-use new cloud offering for smaller organisations or larger organisations dispersed geographically with satellite or remote locations. What we’ve achieved is a cloud-native solution that is future-proof, scalable and characterised by simplicity. Milestone customers no longer need to physically visit multiple sites or spend time on maintenance, they can simply install the gateway and be done. Kite will automatically integrate access control data with the incoming video data to enable access-based video verification, view camera feeds and obtain immediate situational awareness,” said Andreas Pettersson, CEO of Arcules.

Milestone Kite supports 6000+ camera models from 100+ manufacturers. It is fast to install, easy to use and seamlessly scalable, which makes it equally suitable for single-site or multisite surveillance deployments. Milestone Kite further offers flexible hybrid video storage with low bandwidth needs, where video data can be stored in the cloud or at the edge, all dependent on available bandwidth.

Designed with cybersecurity in mind, it delivers continuous security updates and global backup to guard against failure. It comes with built-in people and vehicle detection, heat maps and forensic search, turning the video into intelligent data to improve security and increase operational efficiency.
