Network security and the threat of ‘cyber loopholes’ should be a top priority for video surveillance users, IDIS will tell visitors at IFSEC International. Launching a cyber security advisory video ahead of the show, the IDIS team at ExCeL in London from 18-20 June will also be on hand to demonstrate and explain how IDIS technology goes a step further to strengthen the resilience of traditional surveillance network processes.
IDIS will be highlighting the dangers of cyber attacks and the common vulnerabilities found in many surveillance set-ups – as well as showcasing a full range counter-measures – on Stand IF1110.
Users should plan for three specific risks, states the company: data access loopholes, data transmission weaknesses and the integrity of recorded footage.
“IDIS has consistently led the way in addressing cyber security concerns, taking a multi-pronged approach from R&D through to customer installation,” said James Min, managing director of IDIS Europe. “We’ve developed a rich, layered and comprehensive set of technologies and features to ensure maximum protection for end users.”
Visitors will see how IDIS DirectIP – the cornerstone of the IDIS Total Solution – closes-up widespread vulnerabilities and serves as a proprietary mutual authentication system for all IDIS IP products. IDIS DirectIP speeds up implementations and streamlines cyber security by eliminating the need for engineers to manage multiple IP addresses and associated passwords during implementation. It therefore mitigates human error and the common malpractice of saving passwords in vulnerable spreadsheets.
Using peer-to-peer technology, IDIS’ ‘For Every Network’ technology also lets engineers deploy and configure secure, multi-site surveillance solutions that use centralised monitoring and control without in-depth knowledge of routing or networking.
IDIS will also highlight the cyber security essentials for transmission and recording together with its own patented and proprietary technologies which prevent activities such as snooping, modification and the destruction of data.
In addition, visitors to Stand IF1110 will learn how IDIS ensures the integrity of video recording, with its advanced ‘Chained Fingerprint’ technology authenticating footage such that it can be submitted to the police and the courts as evidence.
“Combined with these technologies, our industry-leading training programmes are helping installers and integration partners to work knowledgeably with devices and networks to ensure maximum cyber security for our end users,” concluded Min.
