Genetec’s Enterprise-Grade, Unified, SaaS Solution


Genetec has announced Security Center SaaS. Built with cybersecurity and privacy at its core, the new offering is a scalable, open, and unified software as a service solution (SaaS).

Combining access control, video management, forensic search, intrusion monitoring, automation, and many other advanced security capabilities, Security Center SaaS ushers in a new chapter in the technology evolution of the physical security industry.

“The physical security industry in Australia and New Zealand and globally has not been able to get cloud or software as a service quite right, especially for enterprise customers,” said Christian Morin, Vice President of Product Engineering and CSO, Genetec Inc. “With Security Center SaaS, organisations are no longer beholden to proprietary or feature-poor as a service solutions that needlessly force a choice of either all on-prem or all cloud. The enterprise capabilities and open architecture of Security Center SaaS are designed to enable systems to handle complex workloads where they make the most sense to be deployed.  This flexibility addresses a longstanding need of end users and fills an important gap in the market,” he said.

A hybrid SaaS solution built for channel partners

As deployments become increasingly sophisticated, end users rely on trusted security professionals to guide them through their transition to cloud and hybrid environments.

George Moawad, Country Manager ANZ, Genetec Inc explains, “Current approaches to SaaS have undercut the role of channel partners, whom we see as central to customer and project success. Security Center SaaS represents an important opportunity for our systems integrators. It means better margins and long-term customer satisfaction, with no additional investment in time or resources on the part of partners.

With an automated quoting and ordering process, systems can be fully operational within minutes from when the order is placed.

Security Center SaaS is a deployment-agnostic platform that supports a range of configurations.

Based on a hybrid-SaaS architecture, the new solution allows organisations to move components and sites to the cloud based on their needs and requirements using a combination of cloud-native services and cloud-managed appliances, with storage and processing at the edge.

Security Center SaaS can also connect seamlessly with existing on-premises security devices and infrastructure.

Access control devices and cameras that are not cloud-ready can easily be connected to Security Center SaaS using Genetec edge appliances.
