Cloud Archives

Cloud Archives establishes a bridge between your on-premise Security Center Archivers or Auxiliary Archivers and the cloud to automatically upload video archives.

Cloud Archives performs the following tasks:
  • Identifies the video archives that must be uploaded to the cloud.
  • Encrypts the archives with the configured password.
    NOTE: Video archives stored in the cloud are always encrypted.
  • Automatically uploads the archives to the cloud.
  • Downloads archives from the cloud when video playback requests are received.
  • Decrypts archives for playback by Security Desk.

Security Center operators can seamlessly access video from Cloud Archives, allowing them to quickly view and search archived video, whether located on-premise or in the cloud.
