The MOBOTIX Cactus Concept – Stay Untouched

Feb 2, 2018

Are you familiar with the advantages of a network-based video security solution with an integrated ‘cactus concept’ for all your hardware and software?

No one wants to invest a lot in security, and no one has to. Unfortunately, we live in a world where people who are seeking the right video solution, underestimate the importance of the reliability of the system. And they end up paying for it. This is because these days, nothing is reliable anymore without the right end-to-end protection concept to defend against the increasing rate of cyber attacks by international hackers.

Mobotix have developed the unique cactus concept for the reliable and complete protection of end-to-end video systems against hacker attacks. This allows companies to protect themselves from future attacks whenever anyone tries to turn their robust IT landscape into an IT wasteland.

Based on an extraordinary decentralized technology concept, the Mobotix technology already features many efficient protective measures against hacker attacks as standard.

Objective of the Cactus Concept

The objective of the cactus concept is to implement a multimedia cyber security campaign in order to raise awareness among potential and existing MOBOTIX customers of the extremely important issue of data security in network-based video security systems, inform them about the growing risks and show them how they can protect themselves.

Hacker attack attempts usually cannot be prevented in IP networks, which is why IP video systems have also become a tempting target for unwanted intruders. This is why companies should protect themselves as much as possible from unauthorized access in the first place – like a cactus.

End-to-End Security

When hackers attack a network in order to access a live image and/or stored images and videos in a camera, the camera is not always the only target of the attack. What happens when they try to pull data from the storage medium of the dismounted camera? Or from the stolen or hacked NAS? And just how safe are the individual interconnections from spying or manipulation?

End-to-end encryption with no blind spots is required, from the image source via the data cables and the data storage through to the video management system on the user’s computer. Like a cactus, whose every limb is covered in thorns, all of the modules (camera, storage, cables, VMS) in the MOBOTIX system have digital thorns that protect them from unauthorized access.

Durable Design With No Moving Parts

Unlike most other plants, cacti can live to be older than average, some up to 200 years. The Mobotix system has an above-average MTBF of 80,000 hours (over 9 years). Maybe that’s because the cactus doesn’t move, and neither does the camera with non-moving parts.

*Mean Time Between Failures

Exceptionally Frugal And Low-maintenance
Cacti also survive in places where other plants have long given up. Not only are they robust, they also use the tight supply of nutrients available to them very sparingly. Just like our video systems, which have a minimal energy consumption and require little maintenance.
