Qognify has launched Umbrella, the new web-based management platform leverages significant cost savings by managing large distributed video surveillance systems centrally in the cloud. In recent years, video surveillance projects have become larger and more complex, demanding more resources and increasing operational costs. Altering the configuration of multiple sites is time-consuming and monitoring the health status of all servers and cameras across every location is a challenge.
Qognify has announced the appointment of Jeremy Howard as Vice President of Physical Security Sales for the Americas. Jeremy has more than 20 years’ experience working with security hardware and software infrastructure, in use by Qognify customers throughout the Americas. He will be working with the team to grow Qognify’s partner and key account channels, using his proven ability to deliver highly customized solutions that meet the security requirements of large enterprises.
Qognify announced that it has completed the acquisition of On-Net Surveillance Systems (OnSSI), including the pioneer of IP video technology – SeeTec GmbH. Backed by the global investment firm Battery Ventures, Qognify announced the agreement on December 22, 2018 and the deal closed on December 28, 2018. With Qognify, OnSSI and SeeTec operating under one umbrella, the company is today one of the largest VMS, Video Analytics, PSIM and Critical Incident Management companies in the world.
