The Alliance for Cyber Security investigates security risks associated with the use of IT
In the company’s drive to implement the highest standards of cyber protection, barox Kommunikation AG, technology leader and specialist manufacturer of ‘Switches made for Video Networks’, has announced that it has joined The Alliance for Cyber Security.
An initiative of Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), The Alliance for Cyber Security is an association of major players in the field of cyber security in Germany. The Alliance’s mission is to increase national cyber security and strengthen resistance to cyber-attacks.
To help ensure the highest standards of cyber resilience, the Alliance for Cyber Security supports the exchange of information and experience from its members, to build a comprehensive knowledge base. In this way, The Alliance acts as an advisor, working with its partners to defend against today’s threats and promoting collaboration to build more secure and resilient network infrastructures and devices for the future.
“The implementation and management of secure communication data is a top priority for barox,” says Rudolf Rohr, barox Co-founder & Managing partner. “Joining The Alliance for Cyber Security will be a great asset for barox, supporting its drive to guarantee, and continuously improve video and data security safety standards. On this platform manufacturers of switches, firewalls, cameras and servers can all share their knowledge in order to develop robust cyber solutions.
“Taking the issue of end-to-end information security very seriously, barox has invested heavily into its ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certification, and partnering with The Alliance for Cyber Security will add an extra dimension to our ability to support our customers with an unparalleled level of cyber security for our video switches, media converters and IP extenders. This is the reason we want to work even closer, and in co-operation with all those working within the IT and Internet industry in the field of IT security.
“In relation to products, in the new RY-28xx Series Managed Ethernet switch, barox has implemented firewall functions to provide protective measures that safeguard, such as, blocking certain protocols like Telnet within the IP camera network.”
The Alliance for Cyber Security investigates security risks associated with the use of IT and develops preventive security measures.
