S2 Global

S2 Global is a better way to manage distributed physical security systems. S2 Global is a flexible and expandable solution with practically unlimited scale. S2 Global enables users to knit together an entire ecosystem of security management systems (SMS) and video management systems (VMS) appliances under one, centrally-controlled, distributed network while retaining many of the principles that S2 pioneered, including an appliance-based architecture and web browser delivery.

S2 Global is both network-efficient and cost-effective. The system integrates SMS and VMS appliances directly, eliminating the regional chokepoints that are a significant problem for legacy systems. Using S2 Global, users have the safety and convenience of individually manageable small systems, with the efficiencies offered by central management and control.

S2 Global is designed to be flexible enough to meet the needs of a range of customers. For large-scale enterprises, S2 can provide a completely-customized, enterprise-class Global solution that includes dedicated S2 engineers onsite supporting the deployment. S2 can also provide a tailored offering for smaller organizations, many of which prefer to build their Global system piece-by-piece over time, or simply need a smaller distributed system. Users can also choose whether to convert their entire system to S2 products, or simply use S2 Global to unite their existing enterprise systems under one management solution.
