USE RADIO IP FOR PROPER ATTACK SURFACE PROTECTION!
Over the years, many public safety agencies have began relying more and more on digital networks to help their employees tend to their daily mission-critical tasks.
However, with networks growing more complex, the amount of possible security risks also grows significantly, creating multiple vulnerabilities.
NETWORK COMPLEXITY: EASIER TO EXPLOIT
This increase in vulnerable points has led to increasing advantages for cybercriminals, as they only need to find a single one and exploit it to successfully cause sensitive data breaches.
These vulnerabilities, also known as “Attack Surfaces”, encompass every hardware and software that connects to an organization’s network, allowing unauthorized users to access and steal sensitive data, leaving various personnel exposed and putting many lives at risk.
REDUCING YOUR ATTACK SURFACE ISN’T A ROBUST SOLUTION
It is common for agencies to seek different methods to improve information security, either by limiting:
- The amount of code running
- Entry points available to untrusted users
- The number applications and services running simultaneously
While this reduces your organization’s attack surfaces, it doesn’t entirely prevent any gaps in your security from forming. Attackers can still find and exploit unprotected assets before employees can even react.
HOW TO PROPERLY DEFEND YOUR ATTACK SURFACE?
The key for ensuring effective cybersecurity is focusing on proactive measures, rather than on reactionary actions to mitigate attacks and recover from the damage.
One of the most consistent forms of attack surfaces stem from faulty data encryption, where sensitive data is shared across unprotected channels and can be easily intercepted. This issue has become even more prominent for mobile public safety personnel are now required to access data from anywhere, at any time.
As a result, many organizations turn to VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) to secure remote connections. By creating an encrypted tunnel between an organization’s network and a mobile device user, the data traffic is protected, making it unintelligible to any outside threat.
THINK RADIO-IP FOR PROACTIVE MEASURES
That’s where Radio-IP comes in with its software-based mobile security solutions: thanks to strong encryption procedures, they provide sleek and easy access to network and application performance. They also add multiple layers of protection to end users, from log on to log off, across an entire fleet.
Reliable and Effective Communications
Among its range of solutions, Radio-IP’s VPN solutions, Armada and Mult IP, allow multiple devices to safely access multiple applications simultaneously, supporting 2-factor authentication system.
With ease of integration and deployment, Radio-IP’s software creates a 2-way encrypted tunnel between your network’s gateway and every connected device, allowing for secured and optimized data traffic.
Advanced Security Measures
Through its top-of-the-line tailor-made security measures, Radio IP delivers seamless and persistent device and user security even when roaming over disparate networks while remaining flexible enough to allow agencies to adjust their security programs according to their needs, budgets, and resources.
This grants any organization the ability to enforce specific security policies for each device, without slowing down data traffic within the network.
With 25 years of experience, Radio IP guarantees a secure and consistent connection for every user within public safety agencies. This protects them from data breaches that could expose confidential, sensitive, or protected information to an unauthorized person.
