Since launching commercially two years ago, Verkada has become the leading hybrid surveillance vendor for over 2,500 organizations including Goodwill, Equinox, World Oil Corp, and Halifax Health, as well as twenty-five global Fortune 500 companies.
With the emergence of new video security technology, many have asked, “What does Verkada do, and why are industry leaders replacing their CCTV systems with hybrid cloud camera systems?”
At the surface, Verkada appears to be a camera manufacturer that operates its devices on a user-friendly software. But any Security, IT, or Facilities professional that gets their hands on a 30-day trial camera (which is offered completely risk-free), quickly understands the value, and promise, of Verkada’s future-proof technology.
At its core, Verkada solves a series of decade-old surveillance problems:
- Unmanageable video management systems (VMS)
- Bandwidth consumption of internet connected cameras
- Evolving cybersecurity threats
- Inability to reliably access footage remotely
- Limited local & cloud storage retention
To overcome these challenges, Verkada designed a scalable solution that utilizes local and cloud storage, removing many of the limitations associated with CCTV and cloud camera systems. Best of all, Verkada’s web-based platform delivers a consumer-like experience that allows technical (and non-technical) users to scale security without a learning curve.
