Motorola Acquires Cloud Video Analytics Provider Ava Security
Ava’s Cloud-native video security solution provides enterprises with real-time visibility and analytics to optimize their operations and detect anomalies and threats.
CHICAGO — Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) announces it has acquired Ava Security, a global provider of Cloud-native video security and analytics, based in London. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Ava Security’s scalable, secure and flexible Cloud solution is said to provide enterprises with real-time visibility and powerful analytics to optimize their operations and detect anomalies and threats.
The platform offers organizations the benefit of an enterprise-grade video security solution while minimizing the physical footprint of their security infrastructure, according to the company.
“Our acquisition of Ava highlights our continued commitment to advancing Cloud-based video security technologies,” says Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions. “With Ava, we’re well-positioned to support our customers’ evolving security needs by expanding our portfolio of intelligent video solutions that help to enhance safety and streamline operations.”
In addition to allowing organizations to access, search and manage their entire system from a centralized dashboard, its self-learning algorithms are also said to enhance enterprise security by detecting abnormal behavior and alerting operators to events in real-time.
“On behalf of the entire team at Ava, we are excited to join Motorola Solutions,” says Tormod Ree, CEO, Ava Security. “I would like to thank Ubon Partners for their backing and believing in our vision. We look forward to building upon Motorola Solutions’ industry-leading video security and access control portfolio, providing customers with advanced ways to protect their people and enhance their operational insights.”
Ava will be part of Motorola Solutions’ Video Security & Access Control organization, which includes the Avigilon, IndigoVision, Pelco, Envysion and Openpath product suites.
