Major VSaaS (Video Surveillance as a Service) companies have partnered with Agent Vi as their video analytics provider, allowing them improved surveillance capabilities and optimal use of personnel. Through these VSaaS providers, hundreds of cameras in Sweden and the Netherlands are powered by Vi-System – Agent Vi’s real-time detection and alert software – which allows for automated, continuous and accurate detection of security breaches and serves as a cost-effective and indispensable tool for the VSaaS operations.
The global VSaaS market is growing rapidly with many sites outsourcing their surveillance requirements to central monitoring stations for remote surveillance services. Two of these service providers – Securitas Alert Services, a division of Securitas in Sweden, and Spyke Security from the Netherlands – have already deployed Vi-System which enables them to effectively secure dozens and even hundreds of sites, without employing large numbers of operators or requiring expansion of their IT infrastructure.
Securitas Alert Services provides VSaaS for companies and government authorities in Sweden. Andreas Sparrenblad, Manager, Video Solutions Europe at Securitas Alert Services, commented that “We are very happy about the cooperation with Agent Vi and they truly are an important part of our focus to create the best VSaaS solution in Europe.”
Spyke Security provides remote monitoring services across the Netherlands, servicing business parks, construction sites, automotive dealerships and more. René den Dekker, Managing Director of Spyke Security commented that “Agent Vi has enabled us to grow our VSaaS model to be the leading company of this kind in Holland. Our coverage of industrial zones is over 40%, and the number of incidents at these sites has decreased by more than 80%.”
Itsik Kattan, CEO of Agent Vi commented that “Video analytics dramatically improves performance of VSaaS providers and enables them to acquire new customers, grow their business and significantly increase profitability. Through automation of video analysis and detections, Agent Vi enables the highest level of security at the end users’ sites, while reducing operational costs for the VSaaS provider.”
