Analyze and manage evidence

When an incident takes place, XProtect lets you condense and filter hours of footage to quickly resolve it. The tracking and monitoring functions not only assist investigations, but they also allow you to keep a virtual eye on objects and people.

  • The Incident Manager streamlines incident reporting
  • Evidence Lock ensures video can’t be prematurely deleted
  • The Export Function ensures compliant third-party sharing

Reduce complexity and relieve workloads

Video technology can help take the pressure off staff and budgets. XProtect’s single interface, multi-layer maps and advanced search simplify and centralize operations. Third-party integrations such as access control and people counting analytics further optimize resources.

  • The intuitive interface can be adjusted to individual or team needs
  • Centralized Search accelerates finding and sharing footage
  • Proactive analytics enable preventative measures

No organization wants to deal with the disruption, costs, and distress of cybersecurity breaches. That’s why XProtect is designed and independently tested to meet the highest security standards. And it’s supported by a security response team.

  • Manage user access with tiered admin and user rights
  • Features high-level encryption and password protection
  • Receive patches, hotfixes and security alerts
