Arcules and RAS Watch Partner to Optimize Global Security Operations Center Management

Arcules announces a strategic partnership with RAS Watch to deliver a fully managed and outsourced (GSOC) solution

Arcules, leading innovators in integrated video and access control cloud services, has announced a strategic partnership with RAS Watch to deliver a fully managed and outsourced global security operations center (GSOC) solution. The jointly developed Rapid Deployment Kit incorporates the Arcules cloud video management system and Axis Communications IP cameras, as well as remote monitoring, alert verification and system health monitoring from RAS Watch.

During the outbreak of COVID-19, businesses are looking for solutions that help them monitor and protect their physical assets against security threats as their employees leave their things behind and work from home for the unforeseeable future. With Arcules’ secure cloud-based video surveillance service and RAS Watch’s fully managed and outsourced GSOC, business and security leaders can quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively secure assets. Short-term contracts are available immediately to help organizations navigate through the COVID-19 crisis.

“Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a majority of jurisdictions issue stay-at-home orders. These directives are necessary to limit the spread of the virus, but they are leading to theft or other problems at recently vacant buildings,” said Ryan Schonfeld, CEO and Founder, RAS Watch. “We knew we needed to come up with a solution that is cost-effective and easy to deploy and offers businesses the kind of protection they need to ensure their facilities are safe.”

The Arcules and RAS Watch partnership allows for rapid deployment of both video camera technology and remote setup through the intuitive, easy-to-use Arcules cloud video surveillance interface. The Arcules service enables users to remotely manage views across all of a company’s locations, organize user and group permissions, check the status of cameras, set up alarms and notifications, and view security and business analytics.

RAS Watch’s managed GSOC empowers remote response and oversight, as well as system health monitoring for security infrastructure, including video surveillance cameras, access control readers, switches and other infrastructure necessary to ensure system functionality. With RAS Watch’s tools and proven analytic methods, security is transformed from a typically reactive environment into a proactive strategy that delivers the information and guidance necessary to mitigate risks before they happen.

“Arcules is excited to partner with RAS Watch on this Rapid Deployment Kit that enables clients to quickly establish security and remote monitoring for their sites,” said Nigel Waterton, CRO, Arcules. “The time to provide clients with quick and cost-effective options to increase security and safety is now, and both Arcules and RAS Watch are dedicated to providing services that ease complexity, reduce additional infrastructure costs and minimize the requirements for smart, effective security monitoring.”
