CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EZVIZ Inc., a designer and manufacturer of innovative lifestyle video electronics and connected home solutions, is bringing light to the foundation of its products and operation -- exceptional privacy standards -- by partnering with Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Trend Micro. EZVIZ offers some of the most robust video and data protection capabilities in the market for its connected home products, such as the flagship Mini introduced late 2015, which captured the market's attention with its tremendous value.

"The challenge for many companies that offer affordable connected home cameras is that a high level of security requires a significant investment at a large scale," said Albert Lin, EZVIZ general manager. "EZVIZ offers a robust and scalable video cloud infrastructure while maintaining affordable price points for all of our lifestyle and connected home video products."

The EZVIZ cloud service is hosted by AWS, one of the most secure and trusted cloud service providers in the world. The AWS servers that host the EZVIZ cloud operation and storage for North American registered users are physically located in the United States, so all data and connections remain local. On top of the security already provided by AWS for all programs and services on its servers, EZVIZ also employs Trend Micro, the leading brand in antivirus and data security, to perform data security as a service (DSaaS) to proactively monitor threats to EZVIZ service hosted on AWS.

One critical element that sets EZVIZ's security measures from many others is that EZVIZ does not allow customers to access the camera over the Internet by entering the camera’s IP address in web browsers, which prevents direct web access to EZVIZ products. Instead, customers must register an account with the EZVIZ cloud, download EZVIZ mobile application and authenticate the connection to access their images and videos. Data transmitted from EZVIZ devices to the mobile applications and cloud are secured using HTTPS and SSL technology and is encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

Leading brands in the home security industry offer measures such as AES encryption and data transmission via HTTPS and SSL, and EZVIZ takes it a step further by adding a verification code. While enabled, the verification code is required to view both live and recorded video, and when setting up any additional devices. The customer is the only entity with the verification code, and there is no default code that can override the encryption. This extra layer of security, enabled by default, is one of the key differentiators in how EZVIZ helps to ensure the protection and privacy of its users.

EZVIZ Mini is currently available on Amazon, Sam's Club, Walmart and Newegg.
