Cyber Security Solutions – Hawaii network security

Cyber Security Solutions

Professional hackers, either working independently or employed by a government or branch of the armed forces, can find network vulnerabilities lacking appropriate security software. Once the weaknesses are exploited, systems can be infected with malicious code and then be remotely controlled by sending commands to view and manipulate content or disrupt normal operations.

Top-tier hackers will promote themselves to cyber terrorists, who have premeditated plans and a systematic approach to waging cyber warfare. They need to develop their plans step-by-step and acquire the appropriate software to carry out their malicious objectives. They usually have some kind of political agenda, targeting government agencies, utilities, public transportation, as well as civilian installations. Cyber terrorists, as the name implies, cause enough harm to instill terror and generate fear.

At Senstar we are targeting two fast growing markets, where network topology and behavior are relatively static, and security awareness is gaining ground:

Physical security networks

  • CCTV surveillance systems
  • Safe- and Smart-City applications
  • Access control systems (indoor/outdoor)
  • Perimeter security (sensors etc.)
  • Data centers

Industrial automation

  • Energy generation and distribution
  • Water treatment systems
  • Transportation
  • HVAC
  • Manufacturing facilities

Today, more and more physical security systems are connected to communication networks for monitoring and control. This connection leaves the physical security systems vulnerable to cyber attacks, threatens national security and impacts public safety. This microsite describes cyber security solutions available from Senstar, which help to address these vulnerabilities.

Introduction to Key Card Access Systems

Providing quality services means control and security for your inventory, offices and mission specific systems. Providing access to the appropriate personnel to your inventory, office buildings or facilities is essential to protecting the integrity of your service. Key Card Access systems has been the trusted technology for these systems, as you can change access immediately without change to hardware. The system is also very user friendly and easy to use for your staff.

Card Access Systems

Proximity Key Card Readers

Sometimes used together with a surveillance or a security camera system, key card access is proven to be reliable and fool proof. Keyless entry, virtual keys and mobile lock control represent the new generation in security and access control. Smart cards can be used in a wide range of access control and secure identification applications that protect personal information or deliver secure transactions. There are a number of applications using virtual access credentials as well as hardware and software providers to choose from.

Whether your office, hotel or facility is large or small, we will have a key card access system that will simplify the management of your facility. With a key card or proximity access system you have much more specific control than passing a key to a staff member or security personnel. You can specify and define when and how cardholders are given access and permission to enter doors and also track time and attendance.

Additionally you can provide non company groups who rent or are a guest, limited access to your building. You can generate live “real time” notices & reports to review immediately or log for later who entered, where and when etc. Remote access also allows you to lock or unlock doorways if a card is lost or forgotten. If a card holder loses a card you can disable it, and receive notification if somehow someone subsequently tries to use it. And no need to re-key locks throughout the facility! Discover the power of access control systems created to optimize your investments and utilize existing locking mechanisms.

A question we hear often is “What is the best surveillance system?” or “What is the latest and greatest in security and access control?”.

The answer is not always simple, as every situation has it’s unique profile.

However, the one system we do consistently turn to for those who want the best of the best, with the most features and reliability is the CompleteViewTM by Salient Systems
