Genetec Enhances its Advantage Comprehensive Maintenance Program

Published

on

Genetec Inc. has announced the addition of privacy and performance monitoring features to its premium maintenance program, Genetec Advantage. In addition to software upgrades, premium support, and system monitoring, Genetec Advantage now includes licenses of KiwiVision Privacy Protector and KiwiVision Camera Integrity Monitor for all new and existing Genetec Advantage subscribers.

To meet the public’s growing expectations of privacy, and to comply with global regulations, the KiwiVision Privacy Protector automatically obscures individuals’ faces caught within a camera’s field of view, so security operators only see what they need to see. Being able to access unobscured footage requires an additional layer of access permissions that is only used when an event warrants an investigation. An audit trail is then maintained that shows who accessed the additional information, and why.

With the addition of KiwiVision Camera Integrity Monitor, customers can make sure that their cameras are operational and efficient at all times. The Camera Integrity Monitor notifies operators when a camera may have been tampered with, if there is a decrease in quality, or if there are abrupt changes in the position of the camera due to environmental or human causes. This is especially useful in large systems involving hundreds or thousands of cameras where it is nearly impossible to manually check each camera’s image and field of view.

“As physical security systems become increasingly complex, it is critical to know that these systems are up to date, performing as they should, and integrating the latest privacy and performance features,” said Julie Gauthier, Director of Global Operations and Technical Support at Genetec. “Genetec Advantage is the best way to get the most out of your Genetec solution, and ensure your system is at peak performance. By providing licenses of KiwiVision Privacy Protector and Camera Integrity Monitor we’re adding tools to help our customers maintain the integrity of their system, and protect the privacy of individuals within view of surveillance cameras, without sacrificing security.”

Ooredoo Qatar, a part of Ooredoo Group – a leading international communications company operating across the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia, announced that Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity solutions, has been chosen to deliver its Secure SD-WAN solution to boost Ooredoo’s Enterprise EDGE portfolio.

Enterprise EDGE is Ooredoo’s managed SD-WAN service that allows enterprise customers to create a network by mixing and matching services from a wide range of WAN connections. Having transformed its network to be SD-WAN ready, Ooredoo offers a new capability unrivalled by traditional connectivity services.

By leveraging Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, Ooredoo now has access to a security-driven networking approach that consolidates SD-WAN functionality and next-generation firewall security in a single offering. This approach fits squarely with Ooredoo’s objectives to allow business customers to leverage the Ooredoo Advantage, thereby making Ooredoo ‘Best for Business’.

“Ooredoo is a problem solver with the best ICT solutions to address business challenges,” said Thani Ali Al Malki – Executive Director Business at Ooredoo Qatar. “In an entrepreneurial environment faced with increasingly sophisticated security challenges, the peace of mind inherent in Enterprise EDGE built on Fortinet solution will reassure business customers across Qatar, which will then contribute to the complete customer satisfaction for which we aim.”

Quantum Xchange Partners with Spire Solutions

Published

on

Quantum Xchange has entered into a strategic partnership with Spire Solutions, a top value-added distributor and preferred cybersecurity solutions provider servicing the Middle East and Africa. Spire customers, partners, and prospects will benefit from access to Phio Trusted Xchange (TX), Quantum Xchange’s out-of-band key delivery system that enables users to future-proof the security of their data and communications networks; overcome the vulnerabilities of present-day encryption techniques, for instance, keys and data traveling together; and protect against man-in-the-middle, harvesting, and future quantum attacks.

Phio TX from Quantum Xchange acts as a simple architecture overlay that works in tandem with conventional encryption systems and any TCP/IP connection (wireless, copper, satellite, fiber) to decouple key generation and delivery from data transmissions. With Phio TX a second, quantum-enhanced encryption key is sent out-of-band down a separate quantum-protected tunnel and mesh network to multiple transmission points. Continuous key rotation takes place on every transfer, further heightening the system’s security.

“We are in the early stages of the greatest migration in the history of computing as nearly every organization in the world will need to update and transition their legacy encryption to new quantum-safe standards,” said Sanjeev Walia, Founder and President of Spire Solutions. “Quantum Xchange’s unique technology greatly eases this burden, offering an affordable and dynamic next-generation key delivery architecture for stronger data security today and quantum-safe protection from future threats. We are pleased to have QXC as a partner and to add Phio TX to our portfolio of the world’s best security products and services.”

Phio TX embraces crypto agility, supporting quantum keys generated from any source, i.e., Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG), Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), or a combination, and all Post-Quantum Cryptographic (PQC) key encapsulation candidate algorithms being evaluated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) scheduled for standardization in 2022. The FIPS-validated network security appliance also meets the European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) protocol for QKD. With Phio TX, users can start with PQC, then easily scale to QKD protection levels with no interruptions to their underlying infrastructure and no network downtime.

“Spire Solutions has a proven track record successfully introducing new cybersecurity solutions to more than 15 countries in its region, making them an ideal partner for Quantum Xchange as we look to expand our global visibility and reach,” said Eddy Zervigon, CEO of Quantum Xchange. “Spire’s dedicated division focusing on cyber threat intelligence, comprehensive risk protection, and response complements our mission to protect and preserve the digital infrastructure that runs our global economy by bringing to market a standards-based, quantum-ready solution that can easily meet the risk mitigation needs of a business at any time while delivering an infinitely stronger cybersecurity posture to any network environment.”

Quantum Xchange will join Spire Solutions stand H1 A120 at #LEAP22, the inaugural global platform for the most disruptive technology professionals taking place at the Riyadh Front Expo Centre in Saudi Arabia from Feb. 1-3, 2022.
