Cloud Storage for Cannabis Compliance

Challenge

Long-term video storage mandates

Depending on your state and country, the cannabis industry has mandates to maintain video surveillance footage anywhere from 90 days up to 2 years, with requirements only increasing. On-prem storage can get costly and cumbersome to maintain.

Disparate VMS systems

Many cannabis businesses have both current and legacy VMS systems which must all work together. To review videos from each system it’s often necessary to login via a VPN into each.

Non-technical staff

Many employees working in the cannabis industry are not skilled IT staff, therefore monitoring and reviewing surveillance footage from multiple VMS locations and tracking across multiple cameras can be difficult.

  • Centralized view from multiple VMS systems
