MOBOTIX has announced a raised focus on cyber security by implementing the MOBOTIX Cactus Concept

Click image for the MOBOTIX website

The concept aims to deliver a comprehensive approach to protecting MOBOTIX products against the threat of cyber-attacks along with education and tools to help customers and partners build and maintain secure video surveillance and access control environments.

The objective of the Cactus Concept is to implement a multimedia cyber security campaign in order to raise awareness among potential and existing MOBOTIX customers of the importance of data security in network-based video security systems and how organizations can protect themselves through cost-efficient and intelligent solutions. End-to-end encryption with no blind spots is required, from the image source via the data cables and the data storage through to the video management system on the user’s computer. Like a cactus, whose every limb is covered in thorns, all of the modules (camera, storage, cables, VMS) in the MOBOTIX system have digital thorns that protect them from unauthorized access.

Thomas Lausten, Chief Executive Officer of MOBOTIX says: "Modern video surveillance and access control technologies help protect people, places and property across the world but they are increasingly targeted by criminals aiming to infiltrate, take-over or disable these vital systems. With the internet of things trend adding billions of IP connected devices each year, our industry must lead the way in creating secure platforms that can reduce the risk posed by these damaging attacks"

As an industry leader within digital video surveillance, MOBOTIX believes in its "Cactus Concept" that protects every element of the design, manufacture and operation of each device along with end-to-end encryption across the entire usage and management cycle.

To ensure the highest levels of security, MOBOTIX uses the services of SySS, a highly regarded and independent third party security testing company that examines the security of both software and hardware elements. SySS customers include Basler Versicherungen, Bundeswehr, CreditPlus Bank AG, Daimler, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Flugsicherung, Festo, Hewlett Packard, Innenministerium/LKA Niedersachsen, SAP, Schaeffler, Schufa, T-Systems and Union Investment.

Sebastian Schreiber, SySS CEO said: "MOBOTIX has a contract with us to provide further penetration testing of its technology elements. The initial platform testing on a current camera model revealed very positive results and we will continue security testing as an ongoing process"

Lausten adds: "Cyber security has been and will continue to be a core focus for MOBOTIX and we look forward to working with our peers in the industry, customers and government agencies to protect the very technologies and systems that help make society safer for all"

In a security installation, the total cost for system deployment is not the security equipment alone. Additional expenses, such as cabling and labor costs, can put security investments out of reach for small business owners. Visible cables can also be a problem where interior design and esthetics are important. Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, is helping to remove these barriers with the introduction of AXIS M5065 and selected wireless accessories. The wireless I/O connectivity enables flexible system deployment providing high-quality indoor security surveillance, allowing business owners to keep control of their premises and assets.

AXIS M5065 delivers HDTV 1080p resolution and includes analytics such as AXIS Video Motion Detection, removed object detection as well as audio volume and scream detection.

With the camera’s wireless I/O connectivity, it is possible to use an on/off command to control up to six wirelessly connected devices supporting Z-Wave Plus®. Thanks to the technology, business owners can easily and cost-efficiently design a tailor-made system by themselves, combining camera and accessories based on their needs. Changes and updates to the system can be made just as easily.

Axis announces four wireless I/O compatible devices:

AXIS T8344 Power On/Off Plug
AXIS T8342 Door/Window Sensor
AXIS T8341 PIR Motion Sensor
AXIS T8343 Alert Button

Kent Fransson, Global Product Manager at Axis Communications explains: "At Axis we are always trying to use the latest technologies to make security less of a hurdle for business owners. By introducing wireless I/O connectivity in a security context, we allow customers to set up an agile surveillance and security system to meet their individual business’ needs, without having to invest a large proportion of their budget on setup fees.

For instance, they can use an AXIS M5065 wirelessly connected to a door sensor to monitor or be alerted if someone opens a door to a cabinet with expensive goods. That is just one example of how a camera with wireless I/O connectivity could make security both easier and cost-effective and we see that it being used more broadly in the future"

AXIS M5065 Network Camera and its compatible devices will be available in US, Canada and Japan in January 2018 through Axis distribution channels.
