Verkada Surveillance IP Cameras for Schools, Business and Hospitals
No need to configure VPNs, update firewalls, or reset factory-default passwords. Verkada cameras work effortlessly from the moment they leave the box.
Verkada offers simplicity and added protection to organizations looking to modernize their approach to physical security. The D-Series cameras—available in indoor and outdoor models— eliminates the need for local servers, firewall equipment and network video recorders (NVRs), reducing complexity and lowering operating costs. In place of the NVR, each Verkada camera stores video footage on industrial-grade, solid-state storage. This fully encrypted and distributed design offers a number of unique benefits. It improves security by doing away with single points of failure and unencrypted NVRs. It minimizes bandwidth consumption by avoiding continuous video upload. And it greatly reduces the cost and complexity of extending the system—simply install new cameras, with no additional hardware equipment required. Paired with Verkada’s intuitive, web-based software, the D-Series cameras come with powerful capabilities. It’s easy to grant, edit and revoke access permissions for any user—by camera, site or organization. Activity-based indexing and intelligent search features automatically identify incidents, reducing hassle and speeding response times. Verkada even makes it possible to share real-time camera feeds via SMS. And because the cameras are web managed, software updates and upgrades occur automatically. Result: Cameras are always up to date.
Verkada eliminates local servers and NVRs, resulting in a system architecture that is simpler, more secure, and easier to operate and manage. Open ports—which introduce security vulnerabilities in traditional camera systems—are also omitted from the system’s design. Out of the box, Verkada cameras are automatically self-firewalled. This safety layer prevents unauthenticated computers on the network from sending malware packets to the camera—even in the event that an attacker or virus is present on the same physical network. Each camera communicates only via encrypted, outbound connections, underpinning an efficient and secure architecture. Video footage that’s stored on each camera is encrypted with public key infrastructure (PKI), which prevents unauthorized access—even in the unlikely event that the camera itself falls into the wrong hands. Verkada software is developed by U.S.-based engineers. As part of a rigorous software development lifecycle, all firmware is cryptographically signed by Verkada to ensure that only authentic firmware can be loaded onto each camera. Verkada works exclusively with datacenter operators that meet the highest industry standards for security and privacy, including ISO 27001, SSAE16/ISAE 3402 Type II: SOC 2, and SSAE16/ISAE 3402 Type II: SOC 3 certifications.
Verkada applies a tiered, differentiated approach to meet your organization’s video retention needs without hindering your local area network. Select data is encrypted, uploaded and made readily accessible to authorized users within Command, Verkada’s secure web application. Full HD video footage is stored on the camera, which has enough storage for up to 120 days of continuous recording. To maximize recording time, footage is automatically degraded to regular HD if meaningful activity is not detected. For customers with longer retention requirements, Verkada offers a number of options. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more
