Hardening can protect your video surveillance system network against harmful cyberattacks from core to edge

Protecting today’s video surveillance network can be time-consuming and requires highly skilled labor. As a result, companies tend to spend minimal effort on cybersecurity hardening best practices.

Some companies separate their video surveillance network from their main network in an attempt to mitigate breaches through the physical layer. However, investigators often access the video surveillance layer from computers that reside on the main network; thereby making both networks vulnerable if unprotected.

Hackers are relentless. They never stop looking for the next exposed entry point to a network. Ironically, surveillance cameras installed to protect and lower risk will provide that opportunity if left unprotected.

With the right technology, policies, procedures, and monitoring, security leaders can stop infiltration into IP camera networks and other critical data. The key is to automate cybersecurity best practices.

Cybersecurity Best Practices

Automated Camera Hardening

  • Block unauthorized IoT devices
  • Secure access to cameras
  • Protect from cyberattacks

Secure Appliance Architecture

  • Isolate video surveillance network
  • Integrate virus and malware protection
  • Use encryption-ready hardware

Monitor Cyber Threats

  • Real-time security alerts
  • Flexible alert management via cloud service or across your network from various protected applications
  • Reduce resources required to install and manage network

Benefits of Integrated Physical / Cyber Solutions

  • Reduce time to identify and resolve issues.
  • Reduce the risk of being hacked by strengthened cybersecurity.
  • Encourages proper deployment of hardware and the configuration of cybersecurity settings by automating, streamlining and simplifying best practices.
  • Using fewer resources to ensure consistency of install regardless of the installer’s technical background.
  • Provides IT oversight of physical security equipment (IoT, servers) by facilitating cyber and health threats alerts, achieved through seamless integration with major security information and event management platforms.
  • Strengthen posture against ransomware using platforms that do not require internet access to stay current.
  • Protection for isolated networks where users cross back and forth between them and corporate networks.
  • Facilitate better service, maintenance, and timely response by providing status of various components found within servers.
  • Prevent downtime through active monitoring.
