Barracuda Networks founder’s video security startup needs channel

A new start-up in the on-demand security and operations video management has an eagle-eye out for channel partners.

Dean Drako, the founder and former CEO of Barracuda Networks, has launched Eagle Eye Networks. Billed as a provider of an on-demand security and operations video management system, the company also released its flagship product, the Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System (VMS), to the channel after 18 months of development, and deployment with test customers.

The company says its aim is to deliver the benefits of the cloud to the video surveillance customer, such as on-demand deployment, centralized management, high reliability, and lower TCO, while eliminating traditional obstacles to cloud deployment such as security, privacy and bandwidth. It adds its technology is compatible with most IP and analog cameras.

“I started Eagle Eye Networks to bring the compelling advantages of secure, on-demand, cloud based, video management and recording to customers,” said Drako, Eagle Eye’s president and CEO. “Further I wanted to deliver an easy-to-use full featured solution that does not have the overhead and complexity of existing solutions. This was the same philosophy I had when I founded Barracuda Networks, and it brought strong success to 150,000 businesses worldwide.”

Based in Austin, Tex., Eagle Eye is currently recruiting resellers. Its reseller program offers branding, sales support, an evaluation and demo program, lead generation, a reseller porter, and the opportunity to earn recurring revenue on all subscriptions.
