Axis awarded 'cyber essentials' accreditation
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

Network video specialist Axis Communications has received the UK government's 'cyber essentials' accreditation.

The scheme, which was launched in 2014, encourages businesses to adhere to best-practices in IT security. It requires that a variety of security controls are put in place across the business, something which the company believes is particularly important "as a supplier of innovative physical security and analytical technology."

A spokesperson for Axis said: "The accreditation is about more than securing a firm’s own IT systems. As the use of networked technologies such as IP surveillance and access control devices continues to increase in the UK, more data than ever is being processed and stored. In light of the impending EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), businesses are also beginning to pay more attention to the security credentials their suppliers possess."

Atul Rajput, Axis regional director, Northern Europe, said: "Receiving accreditation from the Cyber Essentials scheme highlights our commitment to supporting our customers in adopting a best practice approach to all areas of cybersecurity. Openness, trust and transparency are core to fighting the threat of cybercrime and we welcome schemes such as Cyber Essentials, which help give clarity and assurance to all those within the supply chain."
