IDIS video technology’s industry-beating reputation for robust cybersecurity was given a further boost last month in a series of ethical hacking attempts at the ESS+ International Security Trade Fair in Bogotá, Columbia, which attracted over 15,000 visitors and 150 exhibitors.
IDIS was one of only three vendors willing to submit their technology for a public Video Security Product Hacking event and defeated all attempted attacks.
There has been growing concern about the vulnerability of surveillance systems to malicious hacking in recent months, with several high profile breaches, and the broad nature of current cyber threats was reflected in the ten attack types featured in the tests: identification and enumeration of devices; port and service scanning; software vulnerability analysis; penetration testing; brute force testing; network protocol analysis; man-in-the-middle attack testing; denial of service (DoS) testing; privilege escalation testing, and data security testing.
The IDIS NDAA-compliant products subjected to attacks by professional ethical hackers were an IDIS DR-6516P 6500 series H.265 4K recorder, and an IDIS 4K vandal-resistant IR dome camera (DC-D4831HRX), popular hardware options that make up IDIS DirectIP® plug-and-play and end-to-end video solutions, extensively in commercial and government applications.
All IDIS video technology benefits from multi-layered cyber protection. IDIS DirectIP assures true plug-and-play connection of all devices with instant operability of cameras. NVRs ranging from 4 to 256 channels are protected by firewalls and two-factor authentication, eliminating complexity and the potential for human error associated with manual password handling of multiple cameras.
IDIS’s FEN (For Every Network) technology is an advanced DNS service which enables users to set up remote monitoring without knowledge of NAT routers, making system configuration easy with one-click connection – it is protected by Secure Data Transmission (Transport Layer Security).
iBank, IDIS’s proprietary multimedia file system and database architecture, is not based on off-the-shelf software and provides the most robust, cyber secure data recording, searching, and management platform.
And the integrity of all video evidence is protected by IDIS Chained Fingerprint technology, which makes undetected attempts and forgery or image tampering impossible.
“IDIS led the industry in recognizing the importance of cybersecurity, and from the early days of IP video we built in the strongest, multi-layered defenses against hacking attacks and other cyber threats,” said Joon Jun, President of the Global Business Division and Senior Executive Vice President, IDIS. “With growing awareness of the risks associated with network surveillance systems, and the vulnerabilities posed by some other brands, we continue to invest in the most robust protection to give our users complete confidence as demonstrated by this public testing at the ESS+ event.”
