CathexisVision keeps your information secure

Issue 1 2022 Information Security

For over 20 years, customers and installers worldwide have trusted Cathexis to secure and optimise their physical sites and keep their information safe while doing so. Cybersecurity features ensure that no matter the market sector or site requirements, every element of CathexisVision is kept secure: communication, cameras, data and footage.

CathexisVision is used in logistics and transport, healthcare, mining and manufacturing, education, banking, retail and several other market sectors worldwide. The software’s features and analytics suite, along with integration with leading camera brands and systems such as access control, perimeter monitoring, point-of-sale, intercoms and more, make CathexisVision a comprehensive security solution that detects incidents, alerts operators and implements user-configured, automated actions to keep sites secure.

The company is committed to data protection and information security. Several cryptographic techniques are applied to protect the system. CathexisVision supports four levels of encryption for external site connections, IP camera connections are secured and network channels are protected through per-connection encryption. Login credentials are validated using secure public key methods and the application of encryption methods provides data integrity verification. In addition to these measures, CathexisVision’s features such as the option to restrict camera views using privacy zones and its support infrastructure aid its clients’ privacy compliance efforts.

Operators can trust that the footage retrieved from CathexisVision is secure and reliable and thus usable as evidence. Playback can be controlled by passwords, footage can be watermarked and archives are protected from being exported. Original footage and metadata can only be played via the proprietary Cathexis Archive Viewer.

CathexisVision’s strength in ensuring physical security is matched by its system integrity and data security, offering clients a comprehensive, fully integrated and sophisticated solution to meet their security requirements, now and in the future.
