Quantum Wins Two 'Astors' 2021 Homeland Security Awards for Best Video Data Storage Solution

Awards validate Quantum acquisition of leading video surveillance solutions from Pivot3 and the strength of combined portfolio offering

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corporation (NASDAQ: QMCO) announced today that it has been awarded one Platinum and one Gold 'ASTORS' Homeland Security Award from American Security Today. The Annual 'ASTORS' Awards Program, now in its sixth year, is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets. For the 2021 awards program Quantum was recognized twice for the company's leading video surveillance data solutions: Quantum's Pivot3 Surety software was given a Platinum award and Quantum's VS-HCI Edge Series a Gold Award, both in the category of Best Video Data Storage Solution.

"We are honored to receive two prestigious 'ASTORS' awards that recognize our leading solutions that store, manage, protect and enrich video data and are trusted by customers with the most stringent requirements, like the federal government," said Ross Fujii, general manager of strategic markets for Quantum. "These awards further validate our strategic acquisition of Pivot3's leading video surveillance technology to enhance our portfolio of video data solutions. Unlike other vendors, our comprehensive solutions are purpose-built specifically for video surveillance implementations of any size including the ability to support multiple security applications on one common infrastructure, delivering low total cost of ownership."

Quantum's Pivot3 Surety software brings innovation to the physical security space by providing customers with extensive monitoring and management of their servers and applications, regardless of vendor, including video recording, analytics, access control and others. The Quantum VS-HCI Edge Series uses the same software-based intelligence found in the proven Quantum VS-HCI Series used at larger sites to deliver the highest levels of resilience and simplicity, but in a package right-sized and optimized for remote/edge sites. The VS-HCI Edge Series combines server resources and storage in one modular appliance, making it easier to deploy, manage and scale along with delivering more efficient and flexible use of space and resources. There is enough compute and storage available to run the video management software for surveillance as well as other applications software.

"'ASTORS' nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry," said AST's Publisher, Michael J. Madsen.

Quantum's Pivot3 Surety and VS-HCI Edge Series solutions are part of a complete portfolio of solutions that Quantum offers for video surveillance implementations of any size, from entry level to enterprise. The result is the broadest security infrastructure portfolio available from any single vendor, from NVRs, to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) at both the core and edge, to the largest shared storage and archive solutions, to analytics processing.
