Where are you
storing surveillance recordings?
There’s more to monitoring your facilities 24/7 than just making sure you have adequate coverage.
Storage and cybersecurity are now major considerations when building your surveillance system.
Gone are the analog days of recording to tape as modern camera systems are all network connected and able to store footage in the cloud, internally or both.
It pays to consider what that means for data, privacy and, most importantly, your network safety.
Where to store data?
First things first, your data has to live somewhere and the cloud is an easy default for many. Notably, with Hanwha Vision cloud storage, you can extend the footage retention period to any length of time that you need. Not bad.
But, depending on the nature of your business and customers, you may not feel entirely comfortable trusting your data to a far-flung server.
Not a problem, many of the new Hanwha Vision camera systems offer internal storage. In fact, we’re demoing a 4-channel network video recorder here at our office, so feel free to pop in for an in-person look.
Alternatively, you can take a hybrid approach where footage is stored both locally and remotely, which is often a happy middle ground.
That’s where security assurances come in.
Why UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program Matters
Back in 2020, Hanwha Vision’s Wisenet7 cameras received an international cybersecurity certification from UL known as UL CAP – or UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program.
What exactly is that?
As UL notes, “UL CAP aims to minimize risks by creating standardized, testable criteria for assessing software vulnerabilities and weaknesses in embedded products and systems. This helps reduce exploitation, address known malware, enhance security controls and expand security awareness.”
For Hanwha Vision that means their latest network video surveillance cameras meet “all UL evaluation cybersecurity criteria: network penetration, access control, encryption and software updates.”
In other words, “a fully secure end-to-end surveillance workflow, assuring all video is securely stored, encrypted and accessible only by authorized users.”
UL CAP Certified Cameras from Hanwha Vision
All of their new X Series cameras that use the Wisenet 7 chipset are UL CAP certified.
On top of end-to-end cybersecurity, the Wisenet 7 System on a Chip (SoC) is a powerhouse offering enhanced image quality, noise reduction, scene analysis and more.
Ultimately, whichever approach you take to storage, Hanwha Vision puts the control in your hands – and gives you the confidence that your footage is safe.
