Protect Your Network With Security-Enhanced Devices

Viruses are an everyday concern for anyone using a computer. Any network equipment you have deployed that supports a web interface is vulnerable to malicious virus attacks. Including your network monitoring gear.

Your monitoring telecom tools are tasked with an important job: monitor your critical network equipment to ensure optimum reliability. If your remote monitoring and control equipment is compromised by a malicious virus or malware attack, your wider network will be vulnerable. You can't afford to let a security hole with your monitoring gear expose your entire network.


Security Tactics for Compliance

On top of having a more reliable network monitor, you'll also comply with many security standards. Many organizations are faced with standards and regulations that must be met (for example, NERC regulations). So, deploying security-enhanced monitoring gear can help you attain that compliance.

Malware attacks eat profits in 2 ways

Accessing your monitoring devices via a web interface on consumer-grade hardware will always be risky. Malicious viruses can sneak into your telemetry system and expose your sensitive network data.

These kinds of virus attacks create two problems. First, a virus always comes with a repair bill. You're going to have to spend time and resources fixing any computer that's infected. This wastes manpower and resource costs.

Secondly, any downtime caused by a virus attack can easily upset your customers - causing them to take their business elsewhere. These two issues are easily avoided when using security-enhanced features for your network monitoring gear.

There's a lot you can do to protect your network monitoring. Your sensitive and important alarm data should never be vulnerable to malware and outside attacks. Simple precautions and the right vendor can provide you with secure equipment to truly protect your network in real-time.

For one security-conscious client, DPS created a one-way protocol and removed control relays from the device. This allowed their remote sites to report information to their master, without their master being able to control or access their sites. This prevented any hacker from gaining control over the equipment in their network.
