SafeThings announced that it has strengthened its partnership with Axis Communications (Axis) — a leading manufacturer of network cameras, access control devices and network audio devices for the physical security and video surveillance industries — to simplify and improve the operational management of physical security infrastructure.
By introducing deeper integration between Axis devices and the SecuriThings Horizon solution, the partnership helps customers gain end-to-end visibility and control, not only over their physical security devices, but also over management systems and the network dependencies of these devices. As a result, Axis and SecuriThings can better serve customers and enable system integrators to deliver more value with better technology and end-to-end service.
The integration enables organizations to automate the operational management of their security devices, including firmware upgrades, password rotations, certificate management, and vulnerability detection. It also helps them use real-time data to detect, diagnose, and resolve operational issues quickly and efficiently. These features help protect physical security devices from cyber threats and enable organizations to gain visibility and ensure compliance with IT policies and standards.
