Montreal-based Genetec has developed a global customer base with its enterprise grade Security Center solution for unifying and managing images from an organization’s video security, access control, and license plate recognition cameras to help reduce
theft and other crimes. To make its services more affordable to smaller organizations, the company decided to create a cloud-based offering, but required a platform that provided the same high level of security and reliability as its Security Center. Genetec
created its Stratocast solution built on the Windows Azure Platform. The Azure-based offering provides Genetec with a game-changing offering for small to medium-sized businesses that is more affordable, provides strong security, robust reliability, and includes
a deployment model that doesn’t require capital expenditure for traditional on-site servers.
