The rising demands for capturing and managing video surveillance data are placing new pressures on state and local governments, law enforcement agencies, and education officials. The challenges go beyond the expanding costs of equipment, storage, software and management time. Officials must also lay the right foundation to scale their capabilities, improve performance and still remain flexible in a rapidly evolving ecosystem of surveillance tools.
Find out what state, local government and education IT leaders need to know, and what steps you can take to:
• Improve performance and ROI on cameras-per-server for the dollars invested
• Optimize and simplify the management of daily surveillance processing, including the integration of facial recognition, redaction and analysis software
• Fortify reliability and dependability to reduce the risk of surveillance data retrieval failures.
What’s the catalyst behind this astonishing growth? There’s little question that one of the prime drivers — perhaps the most important of all — is the meteoric rise of reliable, high quality, cost-efficient wireless broadband video surveillance networks.
The perimeter continues to dissolve, and the definition of endpoint is evolving, according to results of the SANS 2016 Endpoint Security Survey, now in its third year.
As we might expect, 90% or more consider desktops, servers, routers, firewalls and printers to be endpoints that need to be protected. After that, respondents include other less-typical devices in their definition of endpoints that warrant protection: 71% include building security (access/ surveillance), 59% include employee-owned mobile devices and 40% consider industrial control systems as endpoints that need to be protected. Some respondents also consider POS devices, smart cars, emulated endpoints in the cloud and wearables as endpoints needing protection, highlighting the diversity of thinking among respondents.
Surveillance is an incredibly dynamic industry that continues to grow at an exponential rate. According to IHS, the industry experienced 12 percent growth last year, and is projected to expand even more this year. Are you keeping up with the trends that are fueling this momentum? More importantly, are you capitalizing on the trends that can give you a profitable competitive advantage? This article will show you what to watch out for and provide some insight you can implement that will help you and your customers do just that.
Surveillance systems are evolving from being used primarily for security purposes to being used for analytics and improved ROI. With that in mind, it's important to consider many factors and how they affect the architecture of your surveillance system. This webinar will provide some of the top trends that may affect the outcome of your storage architecture.
Upgrading security systems to meet both current and future needs is no small feat. So when a Texas-based surveillance system integrator began work with a large national nonprofit foundation on its 20,000 square foot park-like property, existing infrastructure and future system deployment were primary considerations. With the objective to update the nonprofit’s Virtual Management Software (VMS) while leveraging existing analog and IP cameras, the system integrator needed a cost-effective solution to meet their current needs with the ability to scale for rapid growth.
Download this case study to learn more about how the system integrator engaged with NUUO, a leading NVR and VMS manufacturer known for seamless integration of 3rd party cameras to build a customized system that would suit the nonprofit’s needs.

Data protection programs at most organizations are concerned with protecting sensitive data from external malicious attacks, relying on technical controls that include perimeter security, network/wireless surveillance and monitoring, application and point security management, and user awareness and education. In this paper, the different leakage points are mapped with regulations and best practices.
Heightened physical security concerns spanning all industries, coupled with technological advancements is driving the requirement for higher camera resolutions, more fields of view with wider dynamic range and longer storage retention periods.
The recent release of the Firesheep Wi-Fi attack tool has increased awareness among both users and attackers of the inherent insecurity of unprotected HTTP connections. Users on unprotected networks who connect to websites through plain HTTP connections expose their connections to those sites to open surveillance and full compromise.
This white paper describes the surveillance video multicasting technology, highlights the benefits of IGMP as well as its integration in Korenix devices for assuring high quality video communication in surveillance applications.

Creating awareness to the current state of video surveillance used for the majority of US businesses and what technology allows for the most effective systems for green usage, higher detail quality and overall smart purchases
Contrary to popular belief, an IP-based video surveillance system of 40 cameras offers a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than an analog-based surveillance system, according to a new study from Axis Communications.
“Convergex takes a great deal of pride in making its clients’ interests and service needs of top priority,” says CIO Ann Neidenbach. “We like to tackle the industry’s toughest challenges—from complex trades to complex business solutions. Since regulation changes in 2008, there’s been a proliferation of places to trade. In the US alone, there are over 50 light pool (LIT) and dark markets. This makes it incredibly expensive, complicated, and very difficult for our customers to find best execution. They’re seeking liquidity and trying to figure out the best place to fill their orders. We’re trying to simplify that for them. “Convergex historically had consisted of several different affiliated companies, which meant that we had silos of trading systems, technology solutions and data. As a result, it was difficult to understand the revenue and profitability for each client across our businesses.” “My number one objective is to help us improve operational efficiencies, and I’m doing that in
