BRONDBY, Denmark—Milestone Systems, a provider of open video management software, has announced the official takeoff of its new Kite cloud solution.

Effective immediately, Milestone Kite is available in North America, the European Union (EU), Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and the UK and will be introduced in the Asia Pacific region and Latin America during 2023.

Powered by Arcules, Milestone Kite is a simple, secure, and scalable video security as a service (VSaaS). The cloud-based solution is primarily designed for small- to medium-sized businesses and larger organizations with multiple satellite and remote locations.

First introduced at the Milestone Partner Summit in the fall of 2022, Milestone Kite is the company’s newest cloud offering. It is tailor-made for clients and customers looking for a cloud-based VSaaS solution that is easy to deploy, simple to use, has low bandwidth requirements, is scalable across locations, and is secure. According to the company, Milestone Kite is an ideal choice for businesses and enterprises with multiple diverse geographic locations, such as banks, retail chains, schools, and residential buildings.

“As promised, we are now broadly launching the Milestone Kite for our partners, clients and end-users,” said Jan Lindeberg, senior product manager at Milestone Systems.  “Based on a strong customer demand for cloud solutions that only require minimal maintenance, we have – together with Arcules – developed Kite as the solution that is simple to install and use, without compromising the highest level of data security. With its built-in video analytics and access control capabilities, Kite offers an extremely compelling package for both physical and video security within one product.”

Kite is designed with cybersecurity in mind and delivers continuous security updates and global backup to guard against outages. It comes with an option to store video data on the edge and has built-in people and vehicle detection, heat maps and forensic search, turning video into intelligent data to improve security and increase operational efficiency.

Milestone Kite is a complementary addition to the company’s XProtect video management software (VMS). With Kite part of the product family, Milestone will now be able to meet the needs of its customers, whether they require on-premise, hybrid, hosted, or pure cloud-based solutions.

Kite will cater for the growing cloud market, which is estimated to account for about 20 percent of the VMS market today, according to Milestone. By 2026, that figure is expected to jump to more than a third of the total market.

With a foundation in Milestone’s open platform DNA, and powered by the Arcules cloud platform, Milestone Kite will support more than 6,000 cameras and devices from 100-plus manufacturers.
