Pivot3 unveils Virtual Security Console

August 2014 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Pivot3, a supplier of video surveillance and virtual desktop (VDI) hyper-converged infrastructure, announced the introduction of the Pivot3 Virtual Security Console, designed to allow users to deliver secure SOC capabilities at any time, in any location.

The Pivot3 Virtual Security Console (VSC) allows users to flexibly deliver secure, centralised video management capabilities at any time and any place without deploying additional expensive, graphics-enabled PCs. This approach permits VMS administration to be managed either on-site or remotely, and brings significant cost savings by allowing the use of existing PCs or thin clients for security monitoring purposes. The infrastructure enhances mobility by offering access to VMS permissions through any Web-enabled device, including mobile phones and tablets. The solution is scalable and designed to meet the demanding needs of markets such as corrections, casinos, retail and manufacturing or any environment in which secure viewing is a priority.

VSC appliances are designed to easily integrate with an existing vSTAC Watch array but can also be deployed outside vSTAC Watch arrays or alongside competitive solutions. The appliances are optimised to deliver an enhanced viewing experience through hardware graphics acceleration using Teradici APEX card for CPU offload and NVDIA GRID K1 card for GPU offload.

“Surveillance users continually search for new ways to centrally manage operations of their systems while building a more robust and secure IT-centric environment,” said Curt Wittich, VP worldwide sales, Pivot3. “We have designed the Pivot3 VSC to reduce the need for additional hardware investment in SOC environments while increasing data security and enabling more mobile operations.”

The release of the VSC appliance follows Pivot3’s recent upgrade of its vSTAC OS, which fuses shared storage, networking and virtual servers. Pivot3 vSTAC OS defines, creates and virtualises all physical storage – including SSD and hard drives – across an array into a common pool of RAID-protected SAN storage.
