Developed as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme, the Cyber Essentials certification is awarded to organizations able to demonstrate good cybersecurity practices and an ability to mitigate risks from internet-based threats in areas including: firewalls, routers and other boundary security devices; internet-connected email, web and application servers; desktop PCs and laptops; and cloud, internet and other service providers.
CyberNB, a special operating agency of Opportunities New Brunswick, recently brought the program to Canada.
The Cyber Essentials Canada toolset helps organizations identify the required controls believed to shield companies from the most common internet threats.
Additionally, March Networks’ Security Updates and Advisories program identifies potential vulnerabilities in its products, and involves regularly tracking US-CERT reports, conducting investigations when required, and alerting customers and partners to necessary software updates via email alerts and information posted on the March Networks website.
“As the video solutions provider of choice for many of the world’s enterprise organizations, including banks and credit unions, March Networks has always taken a responsible approach to our security policies and practices,” said Peter Strom, president and CEO, March Networks. “Achieving this Cyber Essentials certification, which is already well recognized in the UK, provides our customers with yet another assurance of our cybersecurity standards.”
