The City of Waterloo Strengthens Security at its Public Facilities with Aimetis Enterprise Manager™

Aimetis Enterprise Manager™ provides cloud-based centralized management to streamline IT operations in distributed video deployments

Waterloo, Canada - 2015-07-22

Aimetis Corp., a global leader in intelligent video management software, today announced that the City of Waterloo has expanded its video surveillance system to include Aimetis Enterprise Manager™ (AEM). AEM is a cloud-based centralized management tool used to deploy software updates, manage settings and monitor system health and performance through an intuitive dashboard.

Home to more than 130,000 residents, the City of Waterloo is one of Canada’s fastest growing communities. A long-time user of Aimetis Symphony™ as its video management system, the city has increased the number of locations, servers, and cameras to the level where it needed additional assistance in ensuring that the system was running without incident. In addition, the city was looking to reduce the time and cost associated with software updates and manually checking remote servers for proper set-up and compliance with corporate policies.

“AEM has changed how we manage our security at the City of Waterloo,” said Kevin Lobsinger, Corporate Security & Property Coordinator at the City of Waterloo. “AEM allows us to proactively intervene before a failure. AEM has measurably reduced our operating cost and risk.”

AEM helps the city to reduce down time by identifying problems quickly through a web-based dashboard or automated email notifications. It also supports the city’s initiative to increase compliance as AEM can centrally manage configuration settings that cannot be changed locally on site. The other benefit is that AEM will help the city to achieve the goal of cost saving. Its centralized management reduces upfront configuration and ongoing administrative efforts.

As the city continues to grow, AEM will be critical for the city in scaling the monitoring and administration of their multi-site IP video deployment.
