Importance of Security in AV
In today’s world, the majority of ProAV devices, whether it be an HDBaseT matrix, presentation switcher or an AV over IP solution, exist on the network. While it may be easy to connect a device via an ethernet cable to a switch or router, the use of AV over IP also raises security concerns, as the transmission of audio and video signals over a network can potentially be intercepted and manipulated by unauthorized users. Therefore, implementing appropriate security features is essential to ensure the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of AV over IP systems.
It’s critical to understand how that device is capable of being secure. At WyreStorm, we understand the paramount significance of network security, and we take it very seriously. We want our customers to feel confident that when a WyreStorm product is on the network, it will not easily fall prey to malicious activity. To this end, we have made significant improvements and changes to our key technologies.
Some of the important security features that should be implemented in any AV over IP system include encryption, access control, network segmentation, authentication and authorization, and monitoring & logging. By implementing these security features, among others, organizations can help to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their AV over IP systems and minimize the risk of security breaches and data loss.
