Axis Communications has received two accolades in the form of Cyber Essentials Plus, a scheme operated by the National Cyber Security Centre, and Secure by Default self-certification, organised by the Surveillance Camera Commissioner, Tony Porter.
Tony Porter, Surveillance Camera Commissioner for England and Wales said, “Congratulations to Axis Communications in self-certifying their products as ‘secure by default’. It has been an enlightening and positive experience working with manufacturers toward a common goal and it’s a genuine first and further requirements will follow over the next couple of years. The certification mark demonstrates to customers and stakeholders alike that the products listed on my website meet the new minimum requirements I expect in terms of cyber-secure surveillance camera products.”
Steven Kenny, Industry Liaison, Architecture & Engineering at Axis Communications, commented: “Security must be at the heart of our shared ambition for a smarter, safer world. It is imperative that every project is approached strategically within specific security standards and frameworks, and implemented with a Secure by Default philosophy.”
Referring to Cyber Essentials Plus, Atul Rajput, Regional Director, Northern Europe at Axis Communications, said: “With growing awareness around meeting the requirements of GDPR, businesses are more cautious of working with companies who cannot demonstrate a continuing commitment to the safety and security of their systems and processes. We have always had a 100% focus on cybersecurity at Axis. Our renewed accreditation of the Cyber Essentials scheme highlights our commitment to support our customers in adopting a best practice approach to all areas of cybersecurity. The Secure by Default self-certification confirms the hard work that is invested into the products and solutions we develop to ensure security is guaranteed. Openness, trust and transparency are core to fighting the threat of cybercrime and we welcome any further collaboration with schemes that help give clarity and assurance to Axis’ many stakeholders.”
