The Firmware Vault is a secure online locker that stores certified camera firmware and alerts you when new updates are available for your devices. Firmware from select manufacturers can be safely downloaded from the Firmware Vault and applied to cameras directly from the Security Center interface. Manually tracking firmware is an outdated strategy Keeping track of outdated camera firmware and identifying the compatibility of new versions to your system is a tedious and inefficient process. It typically requires manually looking up new firmware versions from camera manufacturers and browsing through release notes from your VMS provider to confirm compatibility. The firmware must then be downloaded and installed manually or using different tools for each camera brand. Multiply this by the number of brands and models in your system, and it's no wonder that 7 out of 10 security cameras use outdated firmware, exposing organizations to potential security and data breaches. A better approach exists today The Firmware Vault tracks new firmware versions and their compatibility with your system. It notifies you the moment a new firmware has been certified for one of your cameras and highlights the type of update it contains, such as fixes for newly-discovered vulnerabilities. It also lets you download new firmware from supported manufacturers and push it to your cameras directly in Security Center with just a few clicks. * Based on Genetec opt-in product improvement program research, October 2019.
