Axis Communications, the global leader in network video, today was honored with an Innovative Product Award for its AXIS Device Manager at the 2018 Global Security Exchange (GSX). The on-premise tool delivers an easy, cost-effective and secure way for security system installers and administrators to manage a couple thousand Axis network cameras, access control and audio devices on one site — or several thousand devices across multiple sites. A staple of cybersecurity management, AXIS Device Manager can manage cybersecurity controls on Axis devices by managing HTTPS and upload IEEE 802.1x certificates, accounts and passwords, in addition to supporting fully efficient installation of firmware upgrades and applications as they’re available.

Delivering fast configurations with backup and restore settings, the AXIS Device Manager saves installers and integrators a significant amount of time. More specifically, in enterprise level installations, the time it takes to execute tasks such as installing AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP), upgrading firmware, configuring and cyber hardening devices is reduced by 90 percent or more.

A scalable solution for organizations and enterprises of all system sizes and segments seeking better control of their devices, it’s broad range of functions, dependability, ease of use and efficiencies make the AXIS Device Manager a true partner to the ever-changing needs for proper cybersecurity system and application management.

“At Axis Communications, we pride ourselves on developing innovative technology that helps installers, integrators and system administrators take a more proactive approach to their unique cybersecurity management needs,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “We’re thrilled that the advanced device management capabilities of the AXIS Device Manager have been recognized with a 2018 GSX Innovative Product Award.”

The Innovative Product Awards, formally known as the ASIS Accolades, gives exhibitors the opportunity to highlight their most innovative, cutting-edge, and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today. Axis Communications was presented with their award during yesterday’s Innovative Product Award Ceremony at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
