Quantum Corporation Acquires Pivot3

Earlier this year, Quantum announced that it was acquiring the video surveillance portfolio and assets of Pivot3, a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and video surveillance solutions vendor. Under Quantum’s ownership, Pivot3’s video surveillance technology was adopted and renamed to Quantum VS-HCI Series.

While the acquisition may have offered some reassurance to former Pivot3 customers, who were aware of the company’s growing financial struggles, it also raised some concerns around the fate of the surveillance solutions they’ve come to depend on.

Modern Enterprise Video Surveillance

According to Mordor Intelligence, the global video surveillance system market is expected to reach over $90 billion by 2026. Video surveillance is being adopted across a variety of industries — from transportation, to retail, to banking, and manufacturing — and organizations are creating and storing more video than ever, due to higher resolutions, having more cameras in more places, and evolving retention and compliance regulations.

Businesses are not only creating more video, but also using it in different ways. Nowadays, surveillance video is not only a tool to have “in case something bad happens,” but also utilized for insight and analysis.

These new changes are prompting organizations to seek out video surveillance solutions that not only capture, store, and archive video, but also deliver advanced features and functionality.
