Milestone adds XProtect to AWS marketplace

15 Jun 2020

Milestone Systems has made XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. 

The XProtect product is a video management platform designed for surveillance and security.

XProtect on AWS is designed to reduce on-premises hardware and leverage AWS to remove the friction involved in setting up and maintaining on-site VMS systems. 

The result is a flexible solution with elastic compute, storage, and networking, that adjusts to the distributed needs of a business.

Milestone Systems offers two products in AWS Marketplace: The free XProtect Essential+, and XProtect BYOL (Bring Your Own License), which requires a paid license sold through Milestone’s existing distribution channels. 

Both products provide an experience identical to XProtect software on-premises and are available across all AWS Regions.

XProtect on AWS is aimed at large enterprises, federal organisations, and smart cities. 

“Making XProtect available in AWS Marketplace will allow our resellers and partners to scale their businesses, optimise their services, and provide new customer experiences”, says Milestone Systems chief technology officer Bjørn Skou Eilertsen.

Milestone Systems is an open platform video management software provider.

The company recently released figures that reported a 14% growth rate across five years, bringing in net revenue of DKK$1.03 billion (AU$240 million) in 2019.

The revenue growth reflects an increase in license and Care sales, as well as overall growth across all of its markets, the company reports.

Milestone Systems interim CEO Lars Larsen says that the company’s continued focus on long term sustainable growth has brought forth profitability every year since the company’s formation 22 years ago.

The company has increased its staff headcount to more than 900 people and increased investments in research and development (R&D), and engineering.

Partners are able to integrate with Milestone Systems’ open technology platform, and they can also use Milestone Marketplace to connect buyers and sellers for new solutions. 

The company plans to launch the second iteration of its marketplace this year, which will allow customers to find resellers and integrators who deliver video solutions.

Milestone Systems expects to grow its global market position. Revenue growth will come from its product portfolio, with particular focus on video management software and network video recorders.

The company’s channel partner ecosystem, camera vendor, technology, and solution partners will also play a key role in maintaining growth.
