Security you can count on

XProtect was created with three important standards in mind, secure by design, by default and by deployment. That is why it comes with an array of security mechanisms that keep your system and its data protected against internal and external threats.
Here is why XProtect is the secure choice:
  • Secure system access. When multiple users need to access the system, effectively control each user's access permission on the viewing client level.
  • Secure end-to-end evidence handling. To ensure that evidence doesn't end up in the wrong hands, you may password protect the video files and limit access to authorized users.
  • Secure encryption on recording severs and management servers. High level encryption and security (HTTPS) of web and mobile user access and the possibility for physical separation of camera network and client network.
