First introduced at the Milestone Partner Summit in fall 2022, Milestone Kite is our newest cloud offering. It is tailor-made for clients and customers looking for a cloud-based VSaaS solution that is easy to deploy, simple to use, has low bandwidth requirements, is scalable across locations, and is secure. Milestone Kite is an ideal choice for businesses and enterprises with multiple diverse geographic locations, such as banks, retail chains, schools, and residential buildings.
Kite is designed with cybersecurity in mind and delivers continuous security updates and global backup to guard against outages. It comes with an option to store video data on the edge and has built-in people and vehicle detection, heat maps and forensic search, turning video into intelligent data to improve security and increase operational efficiency.
Milestone Kite is a great complementary addition to our XProtect video management software (VMS). With Kite part of the product family, Milestone will now be able to meet the needs of our customers, whether they require on-premise, hybrid, hosted, or pure cloud-based solutions.
Milestone Kite will cater for the growing cloud market, which is estimated to account for about 20% of the VMS market today. By 2026, that figure is expected to jump to more than a third of the total market.
