OWS Security Hardening and Best Practices

The OWS Security Guide

Security is a top priority for companies doing business in the cloud. As the number of cloud connected devices continues to grow, so does the risk of data breaches and the potential for unwanted access to vital information. In order to mitigate these risks, organizations need a video surveillance platform that leverages the latest in network security, pro-actively protecting against people or programs that might cause harm.

OpenEye Web Services (OWS) is a scalable and highly-secure cloud managed video surveillance solution that simplifies operations and management by moving these functions to the cloud. It is important to identify and mitigate security issues that can occur as a result of installation or operation of the OWS platform. This guide provides recommendations for secure installation, configuration and operation of the platform to ensure it is secured against all attack vectors.
