The Latest VMS Release from Qognify Aims to Combat Cyber Crime
Qognify has announced the latest release of its Seetec Cayuga R14 video management system (VMS), which places a major focus on cyber security. Almost one-third of companies worldwide admit that they have been the target of an attack on their business-related IT infrastructure. So with the rise of IP solutions for video surveillance systems in recent years, dealing with cybersecurity issues to safeguard video installations has become a task of the utmost importance.
One of the best ways to reduce network vulnerabilities associated with video surveillance systems is to make sure that the communication between the different components of the video solution is securely encrypted. Comprehensive role-based access management must also be in place in order to elevate the level of protection, while meeting the compliance requirements of mission-critical environments.
Cayuga Release 14 focuses on doing just that: the security architecture of the VMS has been revamped to make sure that internal communication is even safer than before. State-of-the-art encryption is used for the export of videos so that they can only be accessed by authorized people. Fundamental Active Directory (AD) optimizations make sure that the login procedure for Cayuga and the administration of AD roles are now fully aligned with industry standards. As Single Sign On is now fully supported, there is no need to explicitly sign in to the Cayuga application once the Windows login has been successful.
Broad Device Integration
Aside from all the security improvements, Cayuga now offers the option to start the standard client in Viewer mode. This way the user benefits from most of the standard features in the client – even without a connection to the Cayuga server. The new offline Client is also available in a light-weight portable version to be distributed with exported video files. Furthermore, Cayuga now supports more than 5,000 different devices from more than 80 different hardware manufacturers. New camera functions have also been introduced into its smart drivers, giving customers even more choice when selecting the right hardware for a video security application.
Cayuga R14 is available now to current customers with a valid Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) who can download and install the update manually or, if updated from an installed base, via the built-in Auto Updater.
