Hikvision is delighted to announce they have been awarded Cyber Essential Plus status – the highest accreditation in the programme.
Operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) the Cyber Essential scheme is an independently assessed accreditation which is supported by the British Government. The scheme is designed to carry out rigorous testing of internet enabled products to ensure when connected to a network they are safe, secure and do not provide a risk to devices on the rest of the network.
Highest level of protection
In partnership with five independent testing houses, the Cyber Essential Plus accreditation process covers a number of different areas to ensure users of internet enabled devices are assured of the highest level of protection against potential cyber threats and attacks. These independent testing houses assess products through internal testing & vulnerability scanning and a Cyber Essential Plus accreditation is only awarded when they are fully satisfied that the tested products do not pose a risk to the wider network.
“Cyber Security is real hot topic in the security industry so naturally we are delighted to have been awarded Cyber Essential Plus status. As the only manufacturer in our industry to have received this level of accreditation this confirms the confidence we at Hikvision have in our products.” said Gary Harmer, Sales Director for Hikvision UK & Ireland
Hikvision will continue to work with the National Cyber Security Centre and other authorised bodies to continually maintain, develop and enhance the security of their products.
