S2 Security is an independent manufacturer of IP-based physical security and video management systems that create a powerful, cost effective way to protect people, property and assets. Providing unmatched reliability and a 100% Web browser delivered user experience, S2 products are the physical security management systems of choice for Fortune 500, education, healthcare, manufacturing and government customers around the world.
Founded in 2002, S2 is committed to the idea that IP networking technology and open architecture provide end users and system installers with greater control over physical security. The company’s flagship product, S2 NetBox, is an industry first with its solid-state design, browser-delivered system management, intuitive user interface and ability to integrate with other best-of-breed manufacturers. S2 NetBox freed end users from the constraints of a dedicated security station, and streamlined system installation and maintenance for system integrators.
S2 Security has since expanded the product family to include scalable solutions for applications ranging from a small, single facility to globally distributed systems for multinational corporations and video management systems. In 2011, the company launched a line of video management systems including two converged SMS/VMS systems. In 2012, S2 debuted a new technology for building distributed networks of SMS and VMS products. As part of that effort, the company launched S2 Global, a flexible and expandable solution with practically unlimited scale.
Support is a core value at S2 Security. Since its inception, the company has reinvested the majority of its profits back into product development and customer support, earning a reputation for service that is unparalleled in the industry. With over 20,000 systems installed in more than 70 countries, S2 products are available in a number of languages and are distributed through an international network of system integrators, OEMs and VARs.
S2 is led by John L. Moss, former CEO and founder of Software House (currently a unit of Tyco Fire and Security). The company is privately held and is owned by a group of individual investors including employees.
