Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) is a unique service that records video in the cloud, eliminating the need for any on-premises servers. With no servers or software to install, organizations can deploy their video surveillance system in no time, and without requiring any IT involvement for on-going maintenance or updates.

Benefits of VSaaS:

  • Record video in the cloud to eliminate the need for on-site servers
  • Rapidly deploy cameras without any network configuration required
  • Centrally monitor all cameras from a web app or Security Center
  • System updates and maintenance are seamlessly automated and managed by New Era
  • Subscription-based service provides greater purchase flexibility

VSaaS connections offer organizations a simple solution to centrally monitor distributed sites, or extend the coverage of their existing Security Center system to remote locations. The service is easy to deploy, requiring no software installation, port forwarding or network setup, and allowing administrators to manage camera configurations remotely. With this solution, organizations can reduce deployment costs and on-going maintenance, which makes it an ideal solution for sites where IT staff, resources, and budget are limited.

What Devices can take Advantage Video Surveillance as a Service?

There are six different camera manufacturers and over 300 cameras that are supported on this platform. Most true cloud VMS providers lock you into closed, proprietary systems, whereas VSaaS does not. New Era Technology is committed to maintaining an open architecture framework and support a variety of cameras. New Era continues to add support for the latest camera technologies to bring your organization more choice and flexibility.

Ensuring Your Information is Safe

Leveraging a network of globally distributed data centers, New Era ensures Video Surveillance as a Service availability and access to video that is backed by a 99.5% Uptime Guarantee. All video is stored in triplicate in the cloud, providing redundancy of recordings, and greater durability against hardware failure. To ensure the privacy of data and video, the system undergoes annual Security Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessments, while all communications between the on-site system and the cloud is encrypted using TLS.
