VIVOTEK protects network cameras against cyber attacks

Focusing hugely on addressing the issue of cyber security in the IP surveillance landscapes: Sanjeev Gulati, Country Manager – India & SAARC, VIVOTEK

This is quite possible. Cyber criminals can enter the IP surveillance networks through video cameras if they’re not adequately protected. In many ways IP cameras act as endpoints, which are connected to the enterprise IT infrastructure. Therefore, there are reasons to securing IP cameras—which quite often are placed at locations less guarded—against cyber intrusions and malware injections.

So, conscious of the susceptibility of network cameras, VIVOTEK, Taiwan’s leading IP surveillance cameras provider, has tied-up with Trend Micro, the leading player in the cyber security space, for protecting against any intrusion. Trend Micro secures VIVOTEK cameras at the firmware level itself. This is a new approach to fortifying network cameras in IoT environments.

Interacting with Digital Edge, Sanjeev Gulati, Country Manager – India & SAARC, VIVOTEK Inc, said, “The strategic partnership with Trend Micro is a revolutionary move in a sense that we’re the first one which has taken up the initiatives of securing video surveillance networks at the level of IP cameras. This technology alliance with Trend Micro establishes a strong precedence. This tie-up has widely been appreciated round the globe including in India”. “For security experts and CISOs (chief information security officers) of enterprises and organizations, security of IP surveillance infrastructure poses a huge challenge. In the field of IoT, security of IP cameras is simply indispensable. This alliance between VOVOTEK and Trend Micro is full of merit”, adds Gulati.

In the first go, the company has launched a premium range of IP cameras carrying Trend Micro’s anti-intrusion technology. However, Gulati says gradually the entire range of VIVOTEK’s IP cameras—including entry-level and mid-range cameras—would be deployed with the Trend Micro technology. Our 9365 model of cameras are stacked with Trend Micro technology. However, a slew of variants of speed dome as well as bullet cameras are equipped with Trend Micro technology.

With this kind of paradigm shift, the company is all set to sensitize its entire channel network in India. “As we’ve come out with Trend Micro loaded IP surveillance cameras, we make sure that our partners and solutions providers properly understand the merit of this. For that we would start specific channel programs in the country, says Gulati. He believes that the alliance with Trend Micro would greatly empower VIVOTEK’s partners to sell more and confidently especially with institutional buyers in India. For that, we work very closely with our distributors including Redington, Autocop and Atos in India. Through them, we feed a network of over 8200 SIs (systems integrators) in the country with IP cameras and related accessories.
