Genetec to Support New Microsoft Cloud for Government Service—Addressing Compliance and Security Requirements for U.S. Public Sector

U.S. State, Local and Federal Government Agencies Can Now Host Genetec Cloud Services on New Microsoft Azure for Government

Montréal, enero 21, 2015 - Genetec™, a leading provider of unified IP security solutions today announced it will support the newly introduced Microsoft Cloud for Government. This new government-community cloud enables U.S. federal agencies and state and local governments to leverage Genetec cloud services, including Security Center Cloud Archives, with the assurance that information stored in Azure Government meets the stringent security and compliance requirements of government agencies including FedRAMP and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Criminal Justice Information Service (CJIS).

In November 2014, Genetec unveiled its new Hybrid Cloud Archiving Service, which takes advantage of Microsoft Azure to provide a highly flexible solution for organizations to easily scale the available storage capacity of their surveillance system, and eliminate the need to invest in additional servers. With the ability to continue leveraging their existing on premise storage equipment, this hybrid cloud service provides a cost-effective solution for U.S. public sector customers that need to extend their video retention period or implement off-site recording for complete redundancy of their local system. With compliance to FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) policies, U.S law enforcement agencies will be able to leverage Azure Government to maintain recordings and data from their video surveillance systems.

 "Genetec is a leader in managing unified video surveillance systems for select U.S. government and law enforcement agencies and Microsoft is excited to partner with them to provide cloud storage that supports compliance with the FBI's CJIS Security Policy," said Richard Zak, Director of Justice & Public Safety Solutions, Microsoft State & Local Government.

 "By working closely with Microsoft, we are able to immediately bring the benefits of the new Azure Government community cloud platform to our public sector customers, giving them access to secure and highly flexible cloud-based services," comments Christian Morin, Vice President Cloud Services at Genetec.

 * Christian Morin will discuss more details about Genetec's hybrid-cloud solutions, cloud archiving and partnership with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Cloud for Government at the upcoming TechSec Solutions conference, February 3rd-4th at the Delray Beach Marriott near Ft-Lauderdale, FL. The panel session titled "Get off my cloud: key questions about cloud-based security systems" is scheduled for Tuesday, February 3rd at 11:00am.
