Axis Communications, a global provider of network video platforms, was honored with an Innovative Product Award for its AXIS Device Manager at the 2018 Global Security Exchange (GSX), hosted in Las Vegas from September 25-27. The on-premise tool delivers an easy, cost-effective and secure way for security system installers and administrators to manage up to a couple of thousand Axis network cameras, access control and audio devices on one site — or several thousand devices across multiple sites. A staple of cybersecurity management, the AXIS Device Manager can manage cybersecurity controls on Axis devices by managing HTTPS and upload IEEE 802.1x certificates, accounts and passwords, in addition to supporting fully efficient installation of firmware upgrades and applications as they’re available.

“At Axis Communications, we pride ourselves on developing innovative technology that helps installers, integrators and system administrators take a more proactive approach to their unique cybersecurity management needs,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “We’re thrilled that the advanced device management capabilities of the AXIS Device Manager have been recognized with a 2018 GSX Innovative Product Award.”
