Viakoo is showcasing the dynamic capabilities of their solution to help ensure consistent compliance across industries for physical security At ISC West 2018 (Booth #33087). Working in conjunction with Coalfire, a leading cyber risk management and compliance firm, the Viakoo Predictive product was found to fully or partially automate the audit process for 38 specific physical security controls. Using automated discovery and push-button reporting from Viakoo can save significant time during an audit, and avoid expensive penalties for failing an audit.
Viakoo is introducing a new IoT Tracker at ISC West 2018 (booth #33087). Designed to leverage their proven technology, the new IoT tracker helps to deliver verification for other IoT devices on the network. Viakoo’s unique solution has gained traction by providing a comprehensive system for ensuring that access and video surveillance devices are operating within expected parameters, alerting security officers/managers when problems arise. With the IoT Tracker, the company is doing the same for other IP-connected devices, including Wi-Fi locks, security entrances, uninterrupted power supplies, visitor management systems and more.
Viakoo has joined Spiceworks Global IT Community and is sponsoring the Physical Security Group as of early 2018. Spiceworks’ global IT community includes millions of IT professionals, over 50,000 of which are subscribed to the Physical Security Group. Though the Physical Security Group is a recent addition to the Spiceworks Community, its rapid growth in recent years demonstrates how integral IT is becoming to many physical security professionals’ operational procedures.
Viakoo’s unique Automated System and Data Verification Solution is creating new and profitable Recurring Monthly Revenue (RMR) opportunities for leading physical security integrators. Stanley Security, Siemens and G4S are amongst the list of integration giants expanding their RMR streams with Viakoo’s award-winning and patented solution, which now has logged over 100 million hours of service.
Viakoo, the leader in automated verification of physical security system performance, announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued its U.S. Patent No. 9,456,190. The patent covers methods for independently calculating the actual time period of retention for an individual video data stream on a recording system. Viakoo has implemented this patent in its products to automatically detect, track, and validate Video Retention Compliance (VRC) as a key performance metric.
Viakoo is demonstrated its unique Automated Surveillance and Access Control Data Stream Verification Solution at this year’s ISC East. Visitors to Viakoo’s exhibit experienced the company’s field-proven proactive solution that provides a digital model of networked surveillance and access control systems’ devices to analyze and verify performance, and maintain the overall integrity of their physical security systems. An automated IoT enablement solution, Viakoo’s solution runs advanced analytics to provide early problem detection, scientific diagnosis, and recommended courses of action to ensure that surveillance and access control system operation is fully documented and in continuous compliance.
