Ava Security has teamed up with Nedap to integrate their best-in-class solutions for security professionals and integrators. Together, the Ava Aware Cloud intelligent video management system (VMS) and the Nedap AEOS physical access control provide the simplicity, security, and power needed for proactive physical security.
By enabling the 24/7 video monitoring of access control events as they happen, Ava Security’s powerful AI analytics gives security professionals what they need to act: usable, precise data, delivered instantly, whether from a video security stream or Nedap’s card readers, door controllers, or intrusion components.
In cases of forced entry, authorisation failure, revoked credentials, or doors propped open for a longer period, notifications pop up on the Aware Cloud user interface, including a thumbnail view from the camera that triggered the rule. The pop-up can be expanded to show more detail and allow further actions to be taken by your operators. For instance, additional details can include the name of the badge holder, the image on the credential, and the exact location, provided in real-time, leading to insights and options that are just not possible if access control remains separate from video security.
After an incident, fast forensic searches allow video security teams to find things quickly and reduce the burden of manually reviewing massive amounts of footage.
“We are delighted to announce a new partnership that will enable organisations to react to security events as they unfold, connect the dots between ‘who,’ ‘where,’ and ‘how,’ and gain additional insights to streamline and take full control of their operations.” Sam Lancia, Head of Video Engineering & Co-Founder at Ava Security.
Integrations between security providers are crucial because of an increasing demand for real-time insights, cyber security protection, situational awareness, and the ability to perform accurate and fast investigations. Financial and commercial businesses, government, defence, healthcare organisations, schools and campuses, critical infrastructure facilities, and public venues can all benefit from the ability to monitor and detect access violations using the two seamlessly interconnected platforms.
“I’m very proud of having Ava Security joining our Technology Partner Programme. They truly bring an amazing user experience and a rich set of powerful features. By combining Ava Aware Cloud with the AEOS access control, you get strong insights on events and alarms like who accessed, where, and when including the recorded videos. Aware Cloud offers features like Smart Presence, so you can live monitor where your people are. Or view Heatmaps of certain floors, areas, or doors…” Wesley Keegstra, Integration Manager at Nedap Security Management.
Both companies place the utmost priority on data security, given the risks of operating in a connected world. Protecting video and data both at rest and in transit, Ava’s cloud video security solution is cyber-hardened with always-on end-to-end encryption and factory-installed certificates. It also provides audit trails of operator and administrator action, automatically recorded to address the full spectrum of compliance requirements. Ava is ISO 27001 certified, demonstrating its commitment to protecting its internal security processes and customers’ data.
