IDIS Video Tech undefeated in public hacking event

IDIS’s video technology’s industry-beating reputation for robust cybersecurity was given a further boost at the end of the summer in a series of ethical hacking attempts at the ESS+ International Security Trade Fair in Bogotá, Columbia, which attracted over 15,000 visitors and 150 exhibitors.

IDIS was one of only three vendors willing to submit their technology for a public Video Security Product Hacking event and it triumphed – defeating all attempted attacks.

There has been growing concern about the vulnerability of surveillance systems to malicious hacking in recent months, with several high-profile breaches.

The broad nature of current cyber threats was reflected in the 10 attack types featured in the tests: identification and enumeration of devices; port and service scanning; software vulnerability analysis; penetration testing; brute force testing; network protocol analysis; man-in-the-middle attack testing; denial of service (DoS) testing; privilege escalation testing, and data security testing.

The IDIS NDAA-compliant products subjected to attacks by professional ethical hackers were an IDIS DR-6516P 6500 series H.265 4K recorder, and an IDIS 4K vandal-resistant IR dome camera (DC-D4831HRX). These popular hardware options make up IDIS DirectIP® plug-and-play and end-to-end video solutions, extensively in commercial and government applications.

“IDIS led the industry in recognising the importance of cybersecurity, and from the early days of IP video we built in the strongest, multi-layered defenses against hacking attacks and other cyber threats,” said Joon Jun, President of the Global Business Division and Senior Executive Vice President, IDIS.
