Montreal, May 5, 2015 - Genetec™, a manufacturer of open platform, unified IP security solutions today announced that Digicel Business, a leading communications provider in the Caribbean and Central America has chosen Genetec's Stratocast™ cloud-based Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) solution to power its latest business solutions product, Digicel Eye.

With Digicel Eye, customers enjoy greater peace of mind and convenience knowing that their business is safe, and operations are running smoothly wherever they go. Powered by Stratocast, Digicel Eye allows business owners to view live and recorded video that is safely stored in the cloud from any Internet connected-device.

With this solution being accessible from anywhere, using either a tablet, PC or mobile phone, we have kept end user mobility in mind. We are proud to provide this service in partnership with Genetec - global leaders in IP security," said Martin Carroll, Digicel Business, Director of Products.

"As a strategic business development partner with Genetec, over a year ago, Integrated Security Solutions recognized the benefits that Stratocast Video Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS) could offer as part of an integrated, value added service with the Digicel Group," said Leo Powell, President and CEO of ISS, Inc.
