Ava, a unified security company, today announced the completion of the merger between Jazz Networks, a cybersecurity insider threat detection and response company, and Vaion, an end-to-end video security provider. Ava is now uniquely positioned to deliver unified cyber and physical security solutions to organizations worldwide.

“The only way to protect against hybrid cyber and physical security threats is to have a solution that can connect the dots across both domains,” said Tormod Ree, CEO, Ava. “In April, we announced our vision, and over the past five months, we have been connecting those dots. Working with new partners and helping organizations across industries protect their most valued assets, online and offline.”

Ava’s integrated cyber and video solution allows for separate analysis of data from all users, cameras and servers. The human-centric cyber solution (formerly by Jazz Networks) employs a powerful combination of policy, education and machine learning sensors to prevent IP theft and sabotage, improve cyber hygiene and accelerate threat hunting. The end-to-end video solution (formerly by Vaion) delivers proactive video security, and insight including integrated video and audio analytics uniquely powered by machine learning algorithms, intuitive installation processes and a range of smart cameras. For maximum flexibility and agility, video can be viewed from anywhere with simple web and mobile interfaces.

“By identifying both cyber and physical security threats before they become incidents, organizations can take a more proactive security posture,” Ree said. 

“We are excited to partner with Ava to bring innovative unified security solutions to our mutual customers,” said Urban Jansson, sales manager, Cygate. “Ava brings a unique understanding of the market’s pain points. Beyond protecting against physical and cyber threats, Ava understands that businesses don’t always have the in-house resources to monitor operations 24/7. Ava’s cutting edge use of machine learning and the cloud eases the burden on internal resources while proactively mitigating the risk.”
