CIAS devices compatible with the 802.1x protocol!
THE CYBER SECURITY STANDARD 802.1x
IS NOW INTEGRATED IN CIAS IP PROTOCOL
Implementing 802.1x network security on an enterprise network protects data and equipment from cyberattack. All critical infrastructures require reinforced authentication of all devices transiting on their network.
The idea that someone could launch a cyberattack from within your corporate walls is real. That’s where the 802.1x network security protocol comes in to play:
- 802.1X is used for secure network authentication. If you are an organization dealing with valuable and sensitive information, you need a secure method of transporting data.
- 802.1X is used so devices can communicate securely with access points (enterprise-grade routers). It was historically only used by large organizations like enterprises, universities, military sites and hospitals, but is rapidly also becoming adopted by smaller businesses because of the growing threats in cyber security.
- 802.1x network security provides protection from someone walking in, connecting a rogue device to your network and releasing a virus, malware, or a man-in-the-middle attack.
CIAS was always at the avant-garde in the PIDS industry and once again proactively delivers solutions to be able to use our state-of-the art sensors on a secured LAN with our complete range of IP interfaces.
802.1x - THE SECURITY GUARD OF YOUR NETWORK
The 802.1X-2001 standard provides an authentication mechanism to devices wishing to attach to a LAN or WLAN, by defining a data link between the client, such as a laptop, and the network, such as an Ethernet switch or wireless access point, and can allow or block network traffic between the two.
The client device (i.e. the Supplicant ) is not allowed access through the Authenticator to the protected side of the network until the Supplicant's identity has been validated and authorized, with credential which could include a user name/password or a permitted digital certificate.
CIAS IP-DOORWAY (Interface for all our digital products)
SIOUX MEMS PRO2 - IP NATIVE
Having authentication according to 802.1X on IP-DOORWAY interface allows all CIAS digital devices (mW barriers and single-head radar) to be connected to an ethernet network that requires it, while the fence sensor system SIOUX MEMS PRO2 (native ethernet) have it on board.
CIAS #NextGenPIDS solutions have been used on the most sensitive sites around the globe for almost 50 years because of their reliability, ease of use and compliance with the strongest requirements.
We are proud to confirm that our products and solutions will continue to be used on all sites where there is no room for compromise when it comes to #ExtremeSecurity!
