MOBOTIX as a manufacturer in Europe obtained “CNPP certified” product certification for its video surveillance cameras, offering a commitment to resist IT and electronic cyber-attacks.
“This recognition is proof of quality, performance, and also of the trust of our customers at a time when digital security is becoming a key issue for all stakeholders,” says Patrice Ferrant, Regional Sales Manager, MOBOTIX.
MOBOTIX announced its intention to focus more on cyber-security over one and a half years ago, in particular by launching the 'MOBOTIX Cactus Concept.' “The objective of this initiative is to promote cyber-security in the area of video protection and video-telephony. An integral part of our strategy is to develop a series of product-integrated tools and features that allow IT security administrators to protect their systems. Now that we have passed a series of tests validated by CNPP, it is truly rewarding to announce our certification today,” added Ferrant.
Products safety against cyber-attacks
CNPP is a player in risk prevention and control in the areas of fire/explosion security, security/malicious acts, cyber-security, environmental issues, and occupational risks. “After several years of R&D and confronted with rising threats of cyber-attacks, CNPP developed a method for assessing the robustness of security/safety products against cyber-attacks. This approach allows us to add resistance to cyber-attacks to the functional security/safety characteristics that are already certified. This new acknowledgment, represented by the @ symbol combined with our certification marks, allows for the addition of a third-party assessment of the products’ ‘security by design.’ "
"The cyber-security work was led by CNPP in association with the National Cyber-security Agency of France (ANSSI) with the aim of providing suitable validation for security/safety products that is completely compatible and complementary to specific ANSSI acknowledgments (FLSC*, common criteria, etc.)."
"Today, these new CNPP Certified trust passports delivered for video surveillance cameras add a cyber-security dimension to the list of electronic security equipment already certified @ (NF & A2P @, A2P @, CNPP Certified), which allows the overall inclusion of the cyber-security dimension by CNPP, with the integration of best practices for installation and IP-connected security/safety maintenance and with the frame of reference APSAD D32 through APSAD service certifications,” says Nathalie Labeys, Head of Pôle Electronique de Sécurité CNPP Cert.
