Had some upgrades made to my virtual guard system. As always with ArcEye, great, fast customer service. The technician who installed the system was friendly but all business - got it done pretty fast, then patiently explained the features and helped me set up the app for remote control of the system. Would highly recommend ArcEye Property Defense to anyone who needs a commercial proactive video monitoring service.

I have relied on ArcEye for my security needs for years now. I have yet to meet an employee who was anything but friendly, respectful and competent. That’s rare these days! I have property security protection, along with cameras now. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Owned an older ArcEye system that needed to be updated and moved to a new location. From the POS to installation everything went VERY well. The technician Austin went over and above to the system was moved to our newly needed location. He was maliciously clean in his work and was very patient with our questions. I highly recommend ArcEye Property Defense.

How to Keep Your Modern Security Camera System From Being Hacked

Today's businesses rely heavily on CCTV systems for security and surveillance. However, the sophistication of these systems also makes them a target for cybercriminals. A breached CCTV system can lead to severe consequences, including data loss, privacy invasion, and compromised security. At ArcEye Property Defense, we offer commercial security camera installation for companies of all sizes, and we want you to avoid these potential hazards. Read below for information that can help you effectively defend your system against such threats.

Enhance Your Network's Defenses

The backbone of your CCTV system's security is its network. Strengthening network security is critical. Incorporate network segmentation to limit potential breaches to a small section, reducing overall risk. Use strong encryption methods for data transmission to prevent unauthorized access to your video feeds. Start by ensuring your network is shielded with powerful firewalls and advanced intrusion detection systems. Regularly update your router's firmware to patch any vulnerabilities. Avoid using default network names and passwords. Instead, opt for unique passwords and change them regularly. This basic step can deter many cyber attacks.

Keep Your Software Up-to-Date

Outdated software can be an open invitation to hackers. It's important to keep your CCTV system's software current. Manufacturers often release updates that address known security flaws. Set your system to update software automatically, or make it a routine to check for any updates manually. Keeping your software up-to-date will close doors that hackers might otherwise use to infiltrate your system.

Add Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication is an effective way to bolster your CCTV system's security. Even if a hacker cracks your password, 2FA requires a second method of verification, often a code that is sent to your smartphone or email, to gain system access. This additional security layer can be a major hurdle for cybercriminals, making it much harder for them to breach your system.

Isolate Your CCTV System on a Dedicated Network

Isolating your CCTV system on a separate network is a smart move. If your CCTV system is compromised, having it on a dedicated network ensures that your main business data remains secure. This segregation can strategically protect your entire digital infrastructure.

Conduct Regular Security Audits and Consult with Professionals

Consistent security audits are key to identifying potential vulnerabilities in your CCTV system. Consider enlisting the help of a professional to conduct these audits. They can provide expert insights and recommend customized solutions. Staying informed about the latest threats and defenses through regular consultations with security professionals ensures that your system remains resilient against emerging cyber threats.
