OpenEye and Feenics Announce Cloud Managed Video and Access Control Integration

Sep 13, 2017

Liberty Lake, WASH - July 24, 2017 - OpenEye, a leading provider of cloud managed video surveillance solutions, announces the integration of OpenEye Web Services (OWS) with the Keep platform, by Feenics. The completion of this integration marks the kickoff of a strategic technology partnership between the two companies to deliver users a fully integrated cloud managed access control and video platform.

Keep, by Feenics, is an enterprise access control platform delivered as a service through a combination of onsite hardware, cloud services, and a highly portable client user interface. In a traditional video integration, Keep would connect to the unique IP address of each integrated recorder, whenever a user requested video associated with an access control event. The success of this connection depends upon the network configuration where the recorder is located. OWS integration eliminates this dependency as video requests from Keep are made against a single point of connectivity in the cloud. Viewing video in Keep over the WAN no longer requires a VPN connection, port forwarding, DDNS, or opening inbound ports on the local network firewall.

"This type of cloud-to-cloud integration represents the future of access control and video integrations in our industry," says Denis Hébert, President of Feenics. "The benefits from a simplicity, reliability, and cyber security perspective are highly compelling."

"Our clients have been clamoring for integration with an access partner whose architecture best reflects the key benefits of the OWS platform," says Rick Sheppard, CEO of OpenEye. "Feenics ' cloud architecture and full-fledged commitment to cyber security make them an ideal technology partner."
