Many end customers are building strong partnerships through the Video Service Providers to trust them as a true Security-as-a-Service provider managing end-to-end physical security solutions on their behalf.

"Axis is excited for the release of Morphean’s Videoprotector access control solution"
“We’ve seen an opportunity to address an increasing customer need to outsource the day-today management of physical access control to their trusted security and service providers.
