March Networks business practices certified cybersecure
March Networks, a provider of intelligent video solutions, has become Cyber Essentials Canada-certified, designating it as a cybersecure business, according to a press release.
Developed as part of the U.K.'s National Cyber Security Program, the certification is awarded to organizations that demonstrate good cybersecurity practices and an ability to mitigate risks from Internet-based threats in areas that include:
- Firewalls, routers and other boundary security devices.
- Internet-connected email, web and application servers.
- Desktop PCs and laptops.
- Cloud, internet and other service providers.
The company said that certification affirms its holistic approach to security — including a 360-degree view of all aspects of its business, from product development and source code management to operational processes and customer data privacy.
March Networks operates a secure network operations center, conducts background checks on employees working with product code, and has participated in extensive security audits with Fortune 500 customers, the release said.
The company's security updates and advisories program regularly tracks US-CERT reports, conducts in-depth investigations as required, and quickly alerts customers and partners to any necessary software updates.
"Business today is largely conducted online, and every organization has a critical responsibility to protect its business data," Stephen Lund, CEO of Opportunities New Brunswick, said in the release. "We are delighted to extend this certification to March Networks in recognition of the security controls and best practices the company has in place within its IT systems to address cybersecurity effectively and mitigate internet-based threats."
