Eagle Eye Networks, the global leader in smart cloud video security, has appointed David Barr as Enterprise Sales Manager for Europe to build the Enterprise Market Segment throughout the region.
David has 30 years of experience in the security industry, joining Eagle Eye Networks after 17 years with Xtralis ADPRO, which in recent years was acquired by Honeywell.
In his new role, David will work with Eagle Eye Networks global and EMEA end users and partners to develop their strategy, as the security market transitions from an on-premise recorder market to a true cloud market for video surveillance.
“This change isn’t happening overnight, but the great thing about Eagle Eye Networks is the possibility to start with a hybrid on-premise and cloud solution where clients can immediately see benefits of the cloud without investing in new hardware,” said David. “Eagle Eye Networks works with more than 3,500 existing analog or IP cameras, and even DVRs can be directly connected to the cloud. This is a gamechanger for companies that want to upgrade their video surveillance, migrate to the cloud for additional cybersecurity, and better manage their operations in a multi-site environment.”
Rishi Lodhia, Managing Director for the region, added, "The creation of this new role and the experience David brings to Eagle Eye Networks illustrates the company’s continued commitment and growth to support Enterprise customers within the region. Enterprise customers are transitioning rapidly to the cloud due to our easy API integrations and open platform capabilities."
This appointment comes following the recent announcement of an investment in Eagle Eye Networks of $40 million from Accel to further develop its cloud solution and AI capabilities globally.
