Milestone Systems, a leading provider of open video management software, is proud to announce the take-off of its new Kite cloud solution. Milestone Kite™ is available in Australia and New Zealand from April.
Powered by Arcules, Milestone Kite is a simple, secure, and scalable video security as a service (VSaaS). The cloud-based solution is primarily designed for small- to medium-sized businesses and larger organisations with multiple satellite and remote locations.
First introduced at the Milestone Partner Summit in fall 2022, Milestone Kite is our newest cloud offering. It is tailor-made for clients and customers looking for a cloud-based VSaaS solution that is easy to deploy, simple to use, has low bandwidth requirements, is scalable across locations, and is secure. Milestone Kite is an ideal choice for businesses and enterprises with multiple diverse geographic locations, such as banks, retail chains, schools, and residential buildings.
“As promised, we are now broadly launching the Milestone Kite for our partners, clients and end-users. Based on a strong customer demand for cloud solutions that only require minimal maintenance, we have – together with Arcules – developed Kite as the solution that is simple to install and use, without compromising the highest level of data security. With its built-in video analytics and access control capabilities, Kite offers an extremely compelling package for both physical and video security within one product,” says Jan Lindeberg, senior product manager at Milestone Systems.
Kite is designed with cybersecurity in mind and delivers continuous security updates and global backup to guard against outages. It comes with an option to store video data on the edge and has built-in people and vehicle detection, heat maps and forensic search, turning video into intelligent data to improve security and increase operational efficiency.
Milestone Kite is a complementary addition to the company’s XProtect video management software (VMS). With Kite part of the product family, Milestone will now be able to meet the needs of customers, whether they require on-premise, hybrid, hosted, or pure cloud-based solutions.
Milestone Kite will cater for the growing cloud market, which is estimated to account for about 20% of the VMS market today. By 2026, that figure is expected to jump to more than a third of the total market.
