Razberi, the intelligent surveillance platform company, has integrated its CameraDefense™ cybersecurity software with Milestone XProtect® Corporate, enabling joint customers to manage and guard their video surveillance systems from a single user interface. Razberi CameraDefense automates and scales industry best practice cyber protections and monitors for risks to IP cameras and corporate networks. Cybersecurity best practices “Many of our customers use Milestone XProtect, so merging the CameraDefense events and notification into a single management and operational dashboard creates a more efficient workflow to address cyber threats within their surveillance system infrastructure,” said Tom Galvin, Razberi CEO. “Using CameraDefense, integrators and end users don’t need additional firewall products and special expertise to consistently implement and maintain cybersecurity best practices to protect their cameras and video surveillance platform.” The combination of Razberi CameraDefense and the Milestone video management software (VMS) creates a ‘single pane of glass’ to notify Milestone VMS operators if CameraDefense detects a cybersecurity issue. CameraDefense makes security policies – such as closing unused ports, removing unneeded network services, and enforcing password complexity – easy to implement on tens, hundreds or thousands of surveillance cameras. Automated notifications These policies are automated with an easy-to-use dashboard to identify vulnerabilities across a system. If a violation occurs, CameraDefense generates an event and posts it in real time to the Milestone Alarm Manager. Events can also be routed via automated notification or other key actions using the Milestone Rules and Events features. “Cybersecurity is an increasing concern for physical security customers and requires proactive defence not reactive, costly fire drills. Razberi has taken a big step forward to interface CameraDefense cybersecurity in conjunction with the Razberi ServerSwitchIQ appliance as a key part of the Milestone Solution Partner integration and ecosystem strategy,” said Reinier Tuinzing, Strategic Alliances Manager, Milestone Systems. “Extending this functionality to Milestone VMS users enables them to monitor and manage cyber threats as well as practice good cyber maintenance from within their video management software.” CameraDefense is embedded into Razberi ServerSwitchIQ™ appliances, creating a video surveillance platform that protects the camera ecosystem with automated camera hardening, a secure appliance architecture, and cyber threat monitoring.

Physical security leaders seek to minimise network impact while maximising video quality and security When it comes to video surveillance systems, security professionals are most focused on maintaining quality at the right cost, simplifying management, and improving reliability. These findings – from a Razberi Technologies survey of more than 100 security systems integrators and enterprise security leaders – highlight the challenges of cost effectively capturing high quality video without making risky trade-offs that can result in lost video. Use of networked cameras Given the convergence of physical security on IP networks, the survey respondents also expressed early concerns about cybersecurity threats. Recent denial of service attacks have used networked cameras as an entry point. “As the number of networked video surveillance cameras increases, so does the strain on IP networks and physical security professionals. It’s difficult to ensure 24x7 operation of cameras and recording as well as harden systems against cyber-attacks,” said Tom Galvin, CEO of Razberi. “Many organisations are hauling megapixel video to centralised, general-purpose storage and servers not intended for video surveillance, which is costly and often requires sacrificing quality to save bandwidth.” The majority of security professionals are planning to install network cameras for video surveillance and security within the next year Main security considerations The survey found the majority of security professionals are planning to install network cameras for video surveillance and security within the next year (85 percent). Their number one focus for network camera installations is reducing technology and network costs (57 percent). Other top considerations are reliability, quality, and maintenance: Improving reliability of video for incidents to lower risks of lost video (51 percent) Enabling the use of the highest quality megapixel cameras for surveillance with no resolution or frame rate trade-offs (48 percent). This dovetails with the 66 percent who said they have had to implement a separate network to offload surveillance video from a business IP network due to bandwidth or performance issues. Making ongoing management and maintenance easier and more automated (54 percent) Cybersecurity vulnerabilities One-third of respondents said that “addressing cybersecurity concerns” is a top consideration. They identified four top cybersecurity vulnerabilities: Failing to update to the latest software or firmware Weak passwords Need for better multi-departmental cooperation between IT and security Lack of best practices for routine maintenance In terms of maintenance and reliability, 58 percent of survey respondents said their organisation receives proactive alerts when there are camera or video recording problems. However, 41 percent said they either do not receive alerts or don’t know if they do.

The VyneWatch cloud-based service keeps users informed of the status of their video surveillance recording devices Razberi Technologies — a leading developer of network video solutions for professional video surveillance and security applications — has released VyneWatch™, a new product that monitors the status of users video recording devices, regardless of the video platform use. “Companies invest thousands of dollars into video surveillance security only to discover that something as simple as a routine server system update can sideline their ability to retrieve video — and they very often discover this too late,” said Razberi Technologies President Tom Galvin. “The new razberi VyneWatch™ cloud-based service provides extra protection to help users know when their system isn’t working properly so they can address the problem prior to losing any ability to recover important video.” VyneWatch monitoring system - cloud-based service The innovative razberi™ VyneWatch™ Monitoring System is a cloud-based service that keeps users informed of the status of their video surveillance recording devices — regardless of the video management software (VMS) platform you use. Even if you have an expansive IT department, it is often difficult to provide the manpower to evaluate all that could potentially knock your video system offline, for example, failure of hard disks to start properly or when utilisation is approaching the maximum for the system. “One of the strongest benefits of VyneWatch™ is that it provides companies an independent system monitor of equipment which leads to instant direct notification of any issues,” said Galvin. There are several ways in which VyneWatch™ works to monitor a video surveillance system: Server Monitoring — reports the current CPU load and memory utilisation and an inventory of the sever serial number, model, name, OS type, CPU model, clock speed, and memory capacity. This is done remotely via a simple and intuitive interface. Network Switch Monitoring — allows the visibility of traffic levels on uplink and camera ports. PoE power levels allow spotting a camera operating beyond normal limits. Sensors detail port setup, traffic levels, link speed, queue length, and PoE performance. Storage System Monitoring — hard drives are monitored for the amount of free space, transfer rates, queue lengths, RAID Status, and other performance indicators. Disks can also provide an inventory of devices including manufacturer, model, serial numbers, and capacity. Event Management — any time an event occurs, VyneWatch™ can instantly email or text a report to as many people are required, allowing proper simultaneous response. The company’s incredible growth The release of the razberi™VyneWatch™ is just one of many steps Razberi Technologies has recently taken as a result of the company’s incredible growth. Razberi raised $3.5 million in capital led by Texas-based LiveOak Venture Partners to support product development and growth and relocated company headquarters to a larger facility within the Dallas/Fort worth Metroplex. Razberi Technologies Releases VyneWatch™, a cloud-based video system status monitor at this years’ ISC West in Las Vegas.
Razberi will introduce three new products in its innovative line of ServerSwitch™ appliances Experience Three New Razberi Technologies Products at ISC West 2015 Razberi Technologies — a leading developer of network video solutions for professional video surveillance and security applications — will introduce three new products in its innovative line of ServerSwitch™ appliances and will highlight technology partner integrations at ISC West Las Vegas, the largest physical security trade show in North America. “We’re excited to showcase several new products in our line of razberi™ ServerSwitch™ network video appliances as well as our partnerships with the security industry’s leading technology developers at ISC West in Las Vegas this April,” said Razberi Technologies President Tom Galvin. “We look forward to visiting with the thousands of security professionals who come to ISC West seeking powerful and affordable network video solutions.” ISC West 2015: Considered the security industry’s premier launching pad for new products and technologies, ISC West hosts more than 26,000 global security product manufacturers and professionals each spring in Las Vegas. This year the event will be held at the Las Vegas Sands Expo, April 15-17, 2015. Attendees are encouraged to visit Razberi Technologies in Booth 3119 to demo the razberi™ ServerSwitch™ and three new products including an Enterprise ServerSwitch™. Razberi will also have representatives on hand in Milestone Systems’ Booth 20060 to demonstrate the powerful integration of the razberi™ ServerSwitch™ with Milestone XProtect software. "We’re excited to showcase several new products in our line of razberi™ ServerSwitch™ network video appliances as well as our partnerships with the security industry’s leading technology developers..." Highlights of the new Razberi Technologies products to be unveiled at ISC West, include: Enterprise ServerSwitch™ — A high performance line that offers twice the performance of the standard unit. VyneWatch Surveillance Health Monitoring System — A cloud based system that keeps you informed of the status of your video recording devices, regardless of the VMS software you use. LocBeri Cyber Security System — A new standard feature on all razberi™ units allowing the installer to prevent the unauthorised use of camera ports with a single button. Razberi ServerSwitch: Razberi Technologies will also be demonstrating the razberi™ ServerSwitch™ — which combines a network video recorder, PoE switch, storage, and video management software (VMS) into one easy-to-use and install appliance. Rather than employing the use of traditional large and expensive network servers, the VMS runs directly on the razberi™. This provides system integrators the ability to assemble smaller, more compact systems that don’t require a large IT infrastructure. By combining these functions into one device, the installer saves a tremendous amount of time, and the risk of purchasing a component that can’t support the demands of a megapixel environment is eliminated.

The new building provides added space to address the company’s phenomenal growth over the last three years Due to continued rapid growth, Razberi Technologies — a leading developer of network video solutions for professional video surveillance and security applications — has moved to a much larger facility within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The new Razberi Technologies headquarters — located at 13755 Hutton Drive, Suite 500, in Farmers Branch, Texas — is triple the size of their previous location in neighbouring Carrollton. The new building provides added space to address the company’s phenomenal growth over the last three years, said Chief Executive Officer Tom Galvin. “Our success with our innovative Razberi ServerSwitch has propelled our growth, resulting in the need for more office, customer service, production, and storage space,” said Galvin. “Fortunately we were able to secure a much larger building not far from our previous location in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex as this area has served us well in being able to provide customers throughout the country with the lowest possible delivery times.” The move to the new facility comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Razberi Technologies raised $3.5 million in capital led by Texas-based LiveOak Venture Partners to support product development and business growth. “With support from our investors, our continued sales growth, and thriving relationships with technology partners in the security industry, Razberi is in the position to take our production ca-pacity and customer service to the next level,” said Galvin. The Razberi ServerSwitch combines a network video recorder, a PoE switch, storage, and video management software (VMS) in one easy-to-use and easy-to-install appliance. The ServerSwitch has been purpose-built for recording and managing megapixel network video. Its embedded SmartSwitch has been designed to move megapixel images to internal audio/video-rated hard drives. A web interface enables remote control and measurement of PoE consumption and data transmission. Rather than employing the use of traditionally large and expensive network servers for video surveillance and access control, the software applications — including 3VR, Avigilon, Axis, Digiop, exacq, Lenel, Milestone, and OnSSI — run directly on the Razberi ServerSwitch. This allows integrators to assemble smaller, more compact systems that don’t require a large IT infrastructure. By combining these functions into one device, the installer saves a tremendous amount of time, and eliminates the risk of purchasing a component that can’t support the demands of a megapixel environment.
