A new NVR series launched by Wavestore is utilising powerful video processing technology from BCDVideo. Available from all Wavestore Authorised Distributors and Partners around the world, the WR-Series NVRs have been engineered for the efficient processing and storage of video and are an ideal complement for Wavestore’s feature-rich video management software (VMS). The WR-Series, which is powered by Dell EMC, features the latest generation Intel Xeon processors, with RAID capabilities, redundant power supplies on most models and worldwide remote secured system management. These systems also include high-performance enterprise grade hard drive technology. Video surveillance applications Wavestore WR-Series NVRs are available in rack-mountable 64, 128 and 254 channel versions and are designed to offer a robust and reliable recording “We are pleased to have been able to form a technology and supply partnership with BCDVideo who have an excellent reputation for coping with the exacting demands of Enterprise level video surveillance applications,” said Julian Inman, Head of Product Management for Wavestore. “Our confidence in the reliability and effectiveness of the WR-Series is underpinned by a five-year warranty which includes next day on-site hardware support services as standard to carry out activities such as replacing faulty in-warranty hard drives and, for enhanced data security, this includes data media retention, leaving any replaced hard drive on the premises for proper customer disposal. An optional four-hour response service in metropolitan areas is also available for mission-critical sites.” Real-time recording for 31 days Wavestore WR-Series NVRs are available in rack-mountable 64, 128 and 254 channel versions and are designed to offer a robust and reliable recording, management and control solution for medium to large size video surveillance projects. WR14: Accommodating up to 4 x 3.5” hard drives in a 1U chassis to provide up to 32TB of storage and, thanks to throughput, users can typically expect 31 days continuous real-time recording from 54 Full HD cameras. WR212: Supplied with RAID and dual redundant power-supply as a standard for increased fault-tolerance, WR 28 NVRs can accommodate up to 12 x 3.5” hot swappable hard drives to provide up to 96TB of storage. Users can typically expect 31 days of continuous real-time recording from more than 120 Full HD cameras. WR216: Accommodating 4 internal and up to 12 x 3.5" hot swappable hard drives in a 2U chassis to provide a capacity of up to 128TB of storage, WR216-Series NVRs are also supplied with RAID and dual redundant power-supply as a standard for increased fault-tolerance. Users can typically expect 31 days of continuous real-time recording from more than 200 Full HD cameras. Best performing system This joint technology helps to ensure the WR-Series will be the best performing system for their customers’ physical security needs" “Working with Wavestore’s engineers on the design of the recording servers gave BCDVideo the ability to bring an innovative integrated solution into their product portfolio. Purpose-built for Wavestore, this joint technology helps to ensure the WR-Series will be the best performing system for their customers’ physical security needs,” stated Eugene Kozlovitser, BCDVideo’s Technology Director. The WR-Series compliments other NVRs and HVRs available from Wavestore, making it easy to pick the right solution for the project at hand. It also comes with the option to upgrade or expand channels at any time in the future, without having to reinstall the VMS software.
SMARTdeflect’s preventative features include a two-factor login process, email notifications based on user login activity, and the ability to remotely disable external access to a server under attack Similar to any sensitive data, video surveillance is susceptible to cyber-attacks. As IP network use continues to grow, the frequency of attempted cyber-attacks will rise as well. That is why protecting the systems that keep us safe from malicious cyber activity is paramount for a successful security network. To combat potential cyber-attackers head-on, BCDVideo has innovated a two-factor authentication requirement for any system login. SMARTdeflect, an extension of BCDVideo’s SMARTtechnology family, is specifically designed to run on BCDVideo’s access control and video recording servers. Limited login attempts IP networks with PoE devices increase the number of entry points through ports exponentially. As a result, cybersecurity can no longer remain passive. Hackers have become increasingly more skilled at accessing sensitive video data, challenging system administrators to actively monitor against potential threats. SMARTdeflect gives them the tool they need. Beyond basic security features like limiting login attempts and personal identification numbers, locking down a server before a specific user can log in again after exceeding the administrator approved failed login attempt limit, disables a cyber attacker’s main method for infiltrating the system. SMARTdeflect is a standard no-charge cyber enhancementon every BCDVideo serverusing Microsoft WindowsServer software “If you assume attempts will be made to gather the video data within the storage device, the more likely you are to take measures to try to prevent it”, states Jeff Burgess, BCDVideo President/CEO. “We cannot always control what or who is coming through the network, but we can see to it that they find a thick steel door when attempting to get inside our server. Adding two-factor authentication as part of the login procedure is that steel door, eliminating easy access. Yes – it makes it a bit more cumbersome to log in. However, we need to accept that cumbersome is the new norm, considering the data sensitivity at the sites we are maintaining. We feel this system security enhancement will be well-received by the system administrators.” Simple user interface The simple user interface also allows system administrators to configure the basic security settings with ease. Among SMARTdeflect’s preventative features include a two-factor login process, which includes a self-generating PIN randomly reassigned every thirty seconds, email notifications based on user login activity – both successful and unsuccessful – and the ability to remotely disable external access to a server under attack. SMARTdeflect is now a standard no-charge cyber enhancement on every BCDVideo server using Microsoft Windows Server software. Microsoft Windows 10 and Windows 7 versions will be released shortly. Cyber defence mechanism Adds Eugene Kozlovitser, BCDVideo Configuration/R&D Manager and co-developer of SMARTdeflect, “With SMARTdeflect’s seamless integration and scalability, the software becomes a cyber defence mechanism in the hands of the system administrator. Having full system access resolution and the ability to prevent system intrusion via local, mobile, or remote connection changes the misconception of a network video recorder (NVR) being the weakest link on a network. The system administrator can now rest assured knowing that the server has another level of security from any malicious attack with the SMARTdeflect application running on their BCDVideo recording equipment.” Customisable settings Thanks to the SMARTdeflect application, system administrators now have full control to remotely prevent attempted cyber-attacks including actively monitoring any user activity. Customisable settings give administrators the notifications and security level right for their system – all built within a simple, easy-to-use mobile application and without any degradation of system performance.
