Milestone Systems introduces Milestone Kite

* MILESTONE-Kite.jpgMilestone 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 XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as Milestone’s newest cloud offering.

Milestone Kite is a simple, secure, and scalable video management system (VMS) cloud solution for small to medium-sized businesses, where XProtect on AWS is optimized for the enterprise market.

Milestone Kite, powered by Arcules, is a simple, secure, automatically updating, scalable, and cost-effective cloud solution. It is the ideal choice for single or distributed multisite organizations that need an easy way to centrally manage all their sites in one unified system. Businesses and enterprises with high value, less complexity, and multiple diverse geographic locations such as banks, retail chains, schools, and residential buildings, will soon find that Milestone Kite is the ideal choice for their security needs.

“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 organizations search for a cloud-based VMS 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 geographically dispersed 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.
