Axis Communications unveils Axis Cloud Connect


Axis Communications has introduced Axis Cloud Connect, which is a new open hybrid cloud platform.

According to Axis, the Axis Cloud Connect is an open hybrid cloud platform designed to provide customers with more secure, flexible, and scalable security solutions. 

Together with Axis devices, the platform enables a range of managed services to support system and device management, video and data delivery and meet high demands in cybersecurity. 

The video surveillance market is increasingly utilising connectivity to cloud, driven by the need for remote access, data-driven insights, and scalability.

While the number of cloud-connected cameras is growing at a rate of over 80% per year, the trend toward cloud adoption has shifted more towards the implementation of hybrid security solutions, a mix of cloud and on-premises infrastructure, using smart edge devices as powerful generators of valuable data.

Creating opportunity and delivering value 

According to Axis, Axis Cloud Connect enables smooth integration of Axis devices and partner applications by offering a selection of managed services.

To keep systems up to date and ensure consistent system performance and cybersecurity, Axis takes added responsibility for hosting, delivering, and running digital services to ensure availability and reliability.

The managed services enable secure remote access to live video operations, and improved device management with automated updates throughout the lifecycle. It also offers user and access management for easy and secure control of user access rights and permissions.

“Axis Cloud Connect is a continuation of our commitment to deliver secure-by-design solutions that meet changing customer needs,” said Johan Paulsson, CTO, Axis Communications. “This offering combines the benefits of cloud technology and hybrid architectures with our deep knowledge of analytics, image usability, cybersecurity, and long-term experience with cloud-based solutions, all managed by our team of experts to reduce friction for our customers.” 

Powering the next generation of AXIS Camera Station

In addition, Axis has also announced that it has built the next generation of its video management system (VMS) – AXIS Camera Station – on Axis Cloud Connect.

Accordingly, Axis is extending its VMS into a suite of solutions that includes AXIS Camera Station Pro, Edge and Center. The AXIS Camera Station suite is engineered to more precisely match the needs of users based on flexible options for video surveillance and device management, architecture and storage, analytics and data management, and cloud-based services.

  • AXIS Camera Station Edge: An easily accessible cam-to-cloud solution combining the power of Axis edge devices with Axis cloud services. It provides a cost-effective, easy-to-use, secure, and scalable video surveillance solution.
  • AXIS Camera Station Pro: A powerful and flexible video surveillance and access management software for customers who want full control of their system.
  • AXIS Camera Station Center: Providing new possibilities to effectively manage and operate hundreds or even thousands of cloud-connected AXIS Camera Station Pro or AXIS Camera Station Edge sites all from one centralised location.
