Last year Microsoft and VIEVU teamed up to create a body camera video storage system that let officers upload video to a secure cloud from VIEVU’s on-site Veripatrol software. The video was then sent to Microsoft’s Azure Government Cloud, where it was stored in compliance with policy approved by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division.
Now, less than a year later, VIEVU has released VIEVUSolution.com, a flexible hosted cloud solution that lets agencies upload evidence and manage case files in one secure cloud-based web interface, as opposed to using on-site software, servers and staff resources.
With VIEVUSolution.com, law enforcement agencies can create as many user profiles as they need at no extra cost, allowing them allocate the cameras where they're needed most. The system also lets officers upload any type of evidence from smartphones or tablets while in the field and collaborate on cases using the virtual case management feature.
“With our latest offering, agencies now have a highly-scalable secure platform and will no longer need to worry about overbuying equipment, maintaining servers and if their cloud platform is CJIS compliant,” said Jason Wine, VIEVU’s VP Engineering & Technology.
VIEVUSolution.com is priced at $55/month per license (minimum of 15 licenses) with an additional one-time $199 set up fee per license. Each VIEVU Solution license includes an LE3 camera, 60GB of storage and support.
Microsoft Azure Government is a government-community cloud that offers hyperscale compute, storage, networking and identity management services, with CJIS-compliant security.
