Razberi, the intelligent surveillance platform company, has integrated its CameraDefense™ cybersecurity software with Milestone XProtect® Corporate, enabling joint customers to manage and guard their video surveillance systems from a single user interface. Razberi CameraDefense automates and scales industry best practice cyber protections and monitors for risks to IP cameras and corporate networks.
Cybersecurity best practices
“Many of our customers use Milestone XProtect, so merging the CameraDefense events and notification into a single management and operational dashboard creates a more efficient workflow to address cyber threats within their surveillance system infrastructure,” said Tom Galvin, Razberi CEO. “Using CameraDefense, integrators and end users don’t need additional firewall products and special expertise to consistently implement and maintain cybersecurity best practices to protect their cameras and video surveillance platform.”
The combination of Razberi CameraDefense and the Milestone video management software (VMS) creates a ‘single pane of glass’ to notify Milestone VMS operators if CameraDefense detects a cybersecurity issue. CameraDefense makes security policies – such as closing unused ports, removing unneeded network services, and enforcing password complexity – easy to implement on tens, hundreds or thousands of surveillance cameras.
These policies are automated with an easy-to-use dashboard to identify vulnerabilities across a system. If a violation occurs, CameraDefense generates an event and posts it in real time to the Milestone Alarm Manager. Events can also be routed via automated notification or other key actions using the Milestone Rules and Events features.
“Cybersecurity is an increasing concern for physical security customers and requires proactive defence not reactive, costly fire drills. Razberi has taken a big step forward to interface CameraDefense cybersecurity in conjunction with the Razberi ServerSwitchIQ appliance as a key part of the Milestone Solution Partner integration and ecosystem strategy,” said Reinier Tuinzing, Strategic Alliances Manager, Milestone Systems. “Extending this functionality to Milestone VMS users enables them to monitor and manage cyber threats as well as practice good cyber maintenance from within their video management software.”
CameraDefense is embedded into Razberi ServerSwitchIQ™ appliances, creating a video surveillance platform that protects the camera ecosystem with automated camera hardening, a secure appliance architecture, and cyber threat monitoring.
