How Hikvision’s New Technology Maximizes Site Security

Security incidents don’t just happen during daylight hours. To ensure that organizations can protect their sites, assets, and people 24×7, Hikvision has created a new generation of ultra-low-light video imaging technologies: DarkFighterS and DarkFighterX.

Hikvision’s DarkFighterS cameras use three key technology innovations to improve security in low-light conditions. These features all start with ‘S’, which is why the technology is called DarkFighterS. They are Hikvision’s Surprising Low-Light Imaging, industry-leading Super Confocal Lenses, and Smart Hybrid Light technology.

Examples of Hikvision DarkFighterS products include DarkFighterS DeepinView Moto Varifocal Bullet Cameras, 4 MP varifocal dome camera with DarkFighter, and 4 MP varifocal bullet cameras with DarkFighter. These cameras are ideal for scenarios and applications such as enterprise premises and industrial parks, especially for the place where little or no movement is expected at night and where discretion is needed to ensure that intruders do not know where security cameras are located.

For large areas and applications, DarkFighterX technology provides Hikvision’s most powerful night-vision capabilities. In particular, this ultra-low-light technology supports full-color, crystal-clear video imaging down to just 0.0002 lux.

Hikvision has introduced multiple low-light technologies to help customers capture full-color, high-resolution video in near-total darkness. Alongside DarkFighterS and DarkFighterX, which are featured in this article, Hikvision also offers ColorVu for small and medium business customers.

5 Pros of Managed Internal Security Service for Business

In 2022, 72% of UAE companies experienced data security incidents caused by their own employees. This is not surprising, because today infosec sphere demonstrates trends towards protection against external threats: ransomware, hacker attacks, DDOS attacks, etc. Internal threats – emerging from the employees – have been underestimated, until now.

After an outbreak of high-profile data breaches and corporate frauds in recent years, companies are urgently looking for ways to protect assets from internal threats. However, there is a shortage of security experts, protective solutions are not cheap, and their implementation takes a lot of time. Fortunately, there is a simple and quick solution to the problem – internal security as a service provided by experts.

How it works

The service providing company takes over all the customer’s protection tasks: installs and configures the software, provides hardware (cloud) and data security analyst. The analytical expert is responsible for:

  • Data leak prevention
  • Security incident investigation
  • Detection of illegal actions of employees in the IT infrastructure (installation and uninstallation of unregulated software and theft of equipment)
  • Recognition of fraud signs (kickbacks, moonlighting)
  • Detection of work discipline violations, sabotage, absenteeism and other personnel security violations
  • Access rights control
  • Audit of compliance with data protection law, etc.

The analyst provides the client with detail-rich reports at the agreed frequency and notifies the responsible employee if the situation requires urgent customer intervention.

MSS also helps to comply with regulatory requirements. In particular, the UAE Information Assurance Regulation issued by the United Arab Emirates Telecommunications and Digital Regulatory Authority prescribes the use of DLP as a data loss prevention means. SearchInform MSS based on DLP, DCAP systems gives access to these technologies to SMEs and to large companies whose security departments are focused on external threat protection.

Target audience of the service

1. Small and medium-sized enterprises that do not have enough resources to build an information security department.

CASE: One of the customers, food manufacturer with 150 employees, had no dedicated security service. Any information security tasks were for the system administrator to deal with them. The company director did not see the need to hire a security expert or to implement special software to control employees, because benefits were unclear. The director changed his mind when he saw that the company’s recipes were used by a competitor. He decided to urgently solve the information security issue engaging security as service.

2. Big companies, short of information security staff and expertise. In this case, budgets for security software and employees are often not an issue. However, it can be quite difficult to find a security expert with the experience and knowledge to solve internal security problems.

CASE: A 1,000-employees company with a security department, but without a dedicated IS expert who would work specifically with the DLP system. The company had several failed attempts to hire, train and keep a good specialist. Therefore, they decided to try outsourcing. Thus, in the person of an external analyst, they found their security expert who will not resign or go on sick leave.

SearchInform has been providing managed data security services since 2019. We have perfected work processes with the clients and gathered plenty of hands-on experience in dealing with complicated and nonstandard tasks.

According to our research, in 100% of companies that have tried security as service, data security violations are detected in the first month: data breach attempts, violations of access rights, waste of company resources, fraud. Typically, you see the first results within the first few hours of the service usage.

To understand if you really need the service, leave a request and try the solution free for one month. During this month, we will spot weaknesses in the internal threat protection, prevent unauthorized access to data and provide a detailed report on the security state in your company.
