Axis Communications unveils Axis Cloud Connect

Axis Communications, a leader in network video, introduces Axis Cloud Connect, an open hybrid cloud platform designed to provide customers with more secure, flexible, and scalable security solutions. Together with Axis devices, this platform enables a range of managed services to support system and device management, video and data delivery and meet high demands in cybersecurity.

The video surveillance market is increasingly utilising connectivity to cloud, driven by the need for remote access, data-driven insights, and scalability. According to the Novaira Insights report, “Cloud Trends in Video Surveillance – 2023 edition”, the number of cloud-connected cameras is growing in the US and Canada at a rate of over 80% per year. Lately, this trend toward cloud adoption has shifted more toward the implementation of hybrid security solutions, a mix of cloud and on-premises infrastructure, using smart edge devices as powerful generators of valuable data.

Axis Cloud Connect enables smooth integration of Axis devices and partner applications by offering a selection of managed services. To keep systems up to date and ensure consistent system performance and cybersecurity, Axis takes added responsibility for hosting, delivering, and running digital services to ensure availability and reliability. The managed services enable secure remote access to live video operations, and improved device management with automated updates throughout the lifecycle. It also offers user and access management for easy and secure control of user access rights and permissions.

Axis Communications have a history of using cloud connectivity, spanning over 15 years and have one million connected cameras in the field. Today, Axis is introducing the next generation of cloud technology on a broader scale. In Axis offerings, such as AXIS Camera Station, there will be additional cloud-based services so customers can benefit from capabilities such as a web client for efficient video operations, user, and device management ­– all powered by Axis Cloud Connect​. Axis Cloud Connect also enables selected partners to develop cloud-based solutions to further meet the needs of end customers.

Johan Paulsson, CTO at Axis, commented “Axis Cloud Connect is a continuation of our commitment to deliver secure-by-design solutions that meet changing customer needs. This offering combines the benefits of a hybrid cloud architecture with our deep knowledge of analytics, image usability, and cybersecurity – all managed by our team of experts to reduce friction for our customers.”

Axis Cloud Connect gives customers the flexibility to integrate Axis products with any system, regardless of complexity. Leveraging the benefits of edge, on-premises, and cloud, this platform is well-suited for both traditional and more modern architectures.

With the critical importance of data security in mind, Axis Cloud Connect together with Axis devices is built with robust security measures in place. Developed using Axis’ expertise in cybersecurity and data privacy, it ensures compliance with industry standards and regulations.
