Whitepaper: IP-Based Security Convergence

Challenges and Solutions for Video Surveillance

The cost saving, flexibility, and convenience of using IP-based video surveillance has revolutionized the security industry. The explosion of cellular, WiFi and satellite communications has led to the expectation that anything can be connected to the Internet, including security systems.

However, the benefit of being able to monitor and control security systems using the “Internet of Things” (IoT) also creates unprecedented opportunities for cyber-attacks—whether criminals target the video system itself, or use it to access other systems on the same network.

This whitepaper will discuss:

  • The security challenges facing IP-based video surveillance.
  • The potential consequences of cyber-attacks
  • Best-practices for ensuring that IP-based physical security solutions don’t become the weakest link in securing networks and facilities.
