Security you can count on

XProtect was created with three important standards in mind, secure by design, by default and by deployment. That is why it comes with an array of security mechanisms that keep your system and its data protected against internal and external threats.

Here’s why XProtect is the secure choice:

  • Control multiple users’ system access using the viewing client level.
  • End-to-end evidence handling is made secure thanks to password protection and user-authorization access.
  • High-level encryption and security (HTTPS) of web and mobile user access, and the possibility to physically separate the camera and client networks.

Where do you want to store data?

On Premise

Store video locally - pushing only metadata to the cloud. On premise is best for sites with limited bandwidth.


The best of cloud and on premise. Hybrid is the best for sites with a mix of locations with varied levels of bandwidth.


Constantly stream video to the cloud with low-latency live viewing and fast remote playback. Cloud is best for sites without strict bandwidth limitations.
