VIVOTEK enters into partnership with Trend Micro in area of cybersecurity

VIVOTEK, an IP surveillance solution provider, and Trend Micro, vendor of cybersecurity solutions, announced a strategic partnership to offer cutting-edge cyber-defense solutions. With VIVOTEK’s profound experience in IP surveillance and Trend Micro’s extensive expertise in cybersecurity, the partnership enables users to enjoy higher levels of network security when deploying VIVOTEK’s network cameras and strengthen defenses in response to the emerging security challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT).

VIVOTEK’s comprehensive solutions include network cameras, video servers, network video recorders, PoE solutions, and video management software. Through the growing proliferation of IoT, VIVOTEK aspires to become the Eye in IoT by drawing on its expansive technological capabilities in image and audio.

The company has established offices and subsidiaries in the United States (California), Europe(Netherlands), India (Delhi), Middle East (Dubai), Latin America (Mexico), and Japan (Tokyo) in 2008, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 respectively.

To create a sound industrial ecosystem, VIVOTEK has expanded strategic alliances with international software and hardware partners and works with over 183 authorized distributors across 116 countries.

“As more and more network cameras are connected to Internet for cloud-related services,” said Dr. Terence Liu, Vice president of Network Threat Defense Technology Group at Trend Micro, “securing the cameras against network security threats is getting vital. The cooperation with VIVOTEK demonstrates an effective and practical approach to IoT security by combining the companies’ deep knowledge of cameras and network threats.”

“Our approach requires a tight integration between hardware-based security features and software applications. Joining forces with Trend Micro is a vital step and together we are proud to roll out the first cybersecurity enhanced network cameras in the IP surveillance industry,” said Dr. Steve Ma, vice president of VIVOTEK Brand Business Research & Development Division. “Thanks to Trend Micro IoT Security for Surveillance Cameras (TMIS-CAM) solution, these cameras are able to automatically detect and prevent credential attack and block suspicious events. Both parties are committed to reducing security vulnerabilities, and develop a safety net for the IoT ecosystem.”

Last month, VIVOTEK launched its multi-adjustable sensor dome camera, the MA8391-ETV. Featuring four independent 3-megapixel CMOS sensors, the MA8391-ETV allows users to simultaneously view four different areas while occupying only a single IP address. This not only reduces the installation time and total number of cameras needed, but also reduces management effort and maintenance costs.

Due to its unique and small design, the camera is perfect for surveillance of large areas, such as parking lots and shopping malls, as well as for spaces like hallways intersections and building corners.

Building on its strategy of “See More in Smarter Ways”, VIVOTEK is proud to roll out the brand new MA8391-ETV. Especially equipped with four independent sensors, each sensor features 3-megapixel and a 2.8 to 8 millimeters lens with remote-focus capability, allowing clients to both monitor wide spaces and retain a clear view of all details with the zoom-in function.

This versatility makes operators are able to remotely tune the zoom and focus of each individual lens precisely, enabling full 360° coverage. Furthermore, it deploys SNV (Supreme Night Visibility) technology and a removable IR-cut filter, making it a true professional day and night camera.

With an IK10 and IP66-rated housing and -40°C to 55°C operating temperature range, the MA8391-ETV is able to withstand rain and dust, and is safeguarded against vandalism and tampering when deployed for outdoor surveillance. Equipped with these features, the MA8391-ETV is the smallest of its type with a diameter of 21 centimeters, but still packs a powerful punch.
