MOBOTIX is the first manufacturer in Europe to obtain French “CNPP certified” product certification for its video surveillance cameras, offering a guarantee of IT and electronic “resistance” to cyber-attacks.
“This recognition is proof of quality, performance, and also of the trust of our customers at a time when digital security is becoming a key issue for all stakeholders,” says Patrice Ferrant, Regional Sales Manager France, MOBOTIX.
MOBOTIX announced its intention to focus more on cyber-security over one and a half years ago, in particular by launching the “MOBOTIX Cactus Concept.”
“The objective of this initiative is to promote cyber-security in the area of video protection and video-telephony. An integral part of our strategy is to develop a series of product-integrated tools and features that allow IT security administrators to protect their systems. Now that we have passed a series of tests validated by CNPP, it is truly rewarding to announce our certification today,” added Ferrant.
“We are particularly proud to be the first European manufacturer to receive the CNPP certification. It confirms our efforts to offer cyber secure products and solutions to our customers worldwide,” emphasizes Thomas Lausten, CEO of MOBOTIX AG.
CNPP is a key player in France in risk prevention and control in the areas of fire/explosion security, security/malicious acts, cyber-security, environmental issues, and occupational risks.
“After several years of R&D and confronted with rising threats of cyber-attacks, CNPP developed a method for assessing the robustness of security/safety products against cyber-attacks. This approach allows us to add resistance to cyber-attacks to the functional security/safety characteristics that are already certified. This new acknowledgment, represented by the @ symbol combined with our certification marks, allows for the addition of a third-party assessment of the products’ ‘security by design.’
The cyber-security work was led by CNPP in association with the National Cyber-security Agency of France (ANSSI) with the aim of providing suitable validation for security/safety products that is completely compatible and complementary to specific ANSSI acknowledgments (FLSC*, common criteria, etc.).
Today, these new CNPP Certified trust passports delivered for video surveillance cameras add a cyber-security dimension to the list of electronic security equipment already certified @ (NF & A2P @, A2P @, CNPP Certified), which allows the overall inclusion of the cyber-security dimension by CNPP, with the integration of best practices for installation and IP-connected security/safety maintenance and with the frame of reference APSAD D32 through APSAD service certifications,” says Nathalie Labeys, Head of Pôle Electronique de Sécurité CNPP Cert.
