Applications: Security Center Feature note Key benefits Reduce the number of update services to configure with unified tool Simplify planning with automatic compatibility validation Efficiently update appliances and workstations centrally Secure proxy simplifies deployment while keeping your system safe from external threats The Genetec Update Service (GUS) is a connected service for Security Center. It helps you track, validate, and deploy new updates for your Security Center system and its infrastructure. It allows you to view available updates for Security Center applications, video surveillance, access control devices, and Windows OS* across your entire system — all from a single tool. This ensures your system uses the latest software and firmware versions, protecting it from known vulnerabilities and giving you access to the latest features. How up to date is your security system? Modern security systems contain a complex mix of sensors, software, and clients, each of which are updated at their own rhythm. With the continuous flow of new releases, it's no surprise that only 30% of cameras use the latest firmware version. As a result, many systems use outdated software and firmware, making them vulnerable to external threats and slowing down access to new capabilities. A better approach exists The Genetec Update Service eliminates the need to track, validate, and deploy updates for your Security Center system manually. It notifies you when compatible updates are available. Security Center, Windows, and select camera firmware can be downloaded and pushed to your servers and devices directly from the Config tool. Along with faster update times, the GUS helps you keep your system safe and performing at peak efficiency. How we help One connected tool With a single unified tool to update your security system, keeping track of new releases is easy. No need to review multiple lists and manually validate compatibility — all updates available for your system are shown in a single location. Security by design The GUS was designed with security and privacy in mind. From certificate pinning to package signing, it uses various techniques to establish a secure connection to your system. Also, by eliminating the need to set up siloed update services, you reduce your system's attack surface. Flexibility Whether your servers are connected to the internet or secured behind a firewall, the GUS can be safely used. Its secure proxy allows you to enroll machines and redirect traffic as needed, limiting the number of connections to different machines.
