Eagle Eye Networks has appointed David Barr as Enterprise Sales Manager for Europe to build the Enterprise Market Segment throughout the region. Barr has 30 years of experience in the security industry, joining Eagle Eye Networks after 17 years with Xtralis ADPRO, which in recent years was acquired by Honeywell. In his new role, Barr will work with Eagle Eye Networks’ global and EMEA end users and partners to develop their strategy, as the security market transitions from an on-premises recorder market to a true cloud market for video surveillance.
“This change isn’t happening overnight, but the great thing about Eagle Eye Networks is the possibility to start with a hybrid on-premises and cloud solution where clients can immediately see benefits of the cloud without investing in new hardware,” noted Barr. “Eagle Eye Networks works with more than 3,500 existing analogue or IP cameras, and even DVRs can be directly connected to the cloud. This is a gamechanger for companies that want to upgrade their video surveillance, migrate to the cloud for additional cybersecurity, and better manage their operations in a multi-site environment.”
“The creation of this new role and the experience David brings to Eagle Eye Networks illustrates the company’s continued commitment and growth to support Enterprise customers within the region,” added Rishi Lodhia, Eagle Eye Networks’ Managing Director for the region. “Enterprise customers are transitioning rapidly to the cloud due to our easy API integrations and open platform capabilities.”
This appointment follows the recent investment in Eagle Eye Networks of US$40 million from Accel to further develop its cloud solution and AI capabilities globally.
