Razberi launches PortExtender to add cameras, IoT devices; while protecting video surveillance ecosystem

Razberi unveiled PortExtender to help enterprises and system integrators manage and monitor the health of an expanding network. The product provides an increased switch port count for Razberi ServerSwitchIQ customers that want to securely add IP cameras and Internet of Things (IoT) devices under a single point of management.

Razberi PortExtender extends Razberi’s CameraDefense cybersecurity and VyneWatch health monitoring to cameras not physically connected to Razberi ServerSwitchIQ appliances. CameraDefense enables organizations to automatically harden IP cameras, secure their video management systems, and receive proactive alerts to cyber threats.

VyneWatch enables security professionals to monitor the performance of the surveillance system and Razberi appliances.

Razberi Technologies offers a reliable, secure, and network-friendly video surveillance platform that records the highest quality video while reducing capital, bandwidth, and space costs. Razberi ServerSwitchIQ™ appliances uniquely combine a firewall, PoE switch, server, storage, and intelligence. Deployed in a scalable architecture near the network’s edge, the platform enables organizations to decrease network utilization by up to 95 percent and protect cameras from cyber attacks. Embedded Razberi CameraDefense software automates cybersecurity protections with camera hardening and cyber threat monitoring. Built-in Razberi VyneWatch health monitoring software alerts security professionals to issues 24×7. Razberi appliances are compatible with top video management systems (VMS) and any network camera.

Enterprises and system integrators can deploy an eight or 16-port version of PortExtender with easy installation. An encrypted, plug-and-play connection securely adds more network cameras and other IoT devices with an intuitive, single point of management. The PortExtender serves as a stacked, managed PoE switch that performs deep packet inspection, enabling the automated camera hardening and security for IoT devices.

“Expanding enterprise security and surveillance needs are forcing organizations to add IP cameras and IoT devices, but they cannot afford for this equipment to be unprotected and unmonitored,” said Tom Galvin, Razberi CEO. “PortExtender future-proofs video surveillance investments by providing a secure, smart way to scale while retaining the cybersecurity, health monitoring, and other intelligence capabilities that Razberi offers.”
