Behind the Scenes: How ABUS connects its security devices to the Azure cloud
ABUS delivers approximately 50,000 IP-enabled security cameras per year and a few thousand IP-enabled alert systems. These devices are not natively cloud enabled because they require direct Internet connections done with port forwarding in the customer’s network firewall, which implies possible security issues. ABUS recently teamed up with Microsoft to create a cloud-based management and control solution that provides a central secure gateway for all IP-enabled devices in a customer’s network.
