Monitoring mission-critical infrastructure according to lawful requirements – ingeniously easy

360° physical security for mission-critical infrastructure

Mission-critical infrastructure stands for organizations and institutions that are of great importance for the common welfare. Outages or disturbances of these institutions can lead to gaps in public safety, supply shortages, violation of data protection or other grave consequences. Due to their immense importance, special laws for the protection of mission-critical infrastructure have been passed throughout the European Union. In order to avoid legal and liability issues, these regulations are to be met by the operators. A reliable monitoring system is necessary which monitors the environment for critical physical threats and alerts instantly in case a hazard is detected. This way, the responsible persons can act as quickly as possible and, at best, avoid damages before they occur.

The nine sectors of mission-critical infrastructure

All-round security for mission-critical infrastructure with Kentix:

  • 50% of IT outages are caused by technical defects or human misconduct

  • The Kentix MultiSensor® technology monitors your rooms for over 35 physical threats – all with just one system

  • The access control system Kentix DoorLock® protects against unauthorized access and alerts in case of attempted sabotage

  • AC or USV systems and more are being monitored for functionality in real time

  • Server in the network are permanently monitored for their availability by the AlarmManager

  • All important alerts are forwarded to the responsible persons immediately

  • Kentix systems are ingeniously easy: All-in-One, easy to install and with a central administration

Say goodbye to several single alarm systems and save money!

No matter how large or small the application is – Kentix solutions integrate all major systems and only need few system components for complete monitoring of the environment which saves money in regards to the initial investment as well as the continuous operation. In comparison to several single systems you can save up to 2/3 of the otherwise usual cost. Moreover you will spare yourself trouble and extra work if the single systems are not fully compatible with each other.

Kentix systems include:

  1. Climate monitoring
  2. Burglar alarm system
  3. Early fire detection
  4. Access control
  5. Network monitoring
  6. Reporting – documentation

Headaches because of compliance regulations? Kentix has the solution!

Compliance regulations can be overwhelming. There are many factors that come into play with the planning, implementation and continuous operation of mission-critical infrastructure. In May 2016, a new law has been passed that determines uniform regulations for the safety of business critical information technology across the entire European Union. When standards are not met, the operator could quickly face legal trouble. But how is one supposed to accomplish taking care of all these factors at once?

Kentix has the remedy: Our monitoring solutions check the entire environment for over 35 physical threats with only one system. This way, you fulfill compliance and baseline protection regulations as well as the ISO27001 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation with one ingeniously easy all-in-one system for monitoring and access control. The single sensors and access components are interconnectable and therefore suitable for small as well as large systems with distributed sites.

The IT Safety Act and its consequences for mission-critical infrastructure

In May 2016, the EU committee has passed a new law that is to provide a higher level of IT security for relevant businesses, meaning mission-critical infrastructure such as hospitals, power plants, public transport, banks or municipal utilities. The business critical IT processes are to be better protected which is to avoid supply shortages and preemptively prevent the endangerment of public safety.

Operators of mission-critical infrastructure are obligated to report incidents that can lead to gaps in security or data protection such as sever hacker attacks or system crashes. The member states must upgrade to more hardware and software and must check their systems for potential gaps in order to make corrections where needed. If this duty is not pursued, business face penalties accordingly.

IT Safety Act: How municipal utilities master the new challenge

Many municipal utilities are under great pressure: They are affected by the new lawful requirements for operators of mission-critical infrastructure. The law is meant to prevent attacks from the outside and ensure a secure mains operation. For the municipal utilities this means urgent need for action. According to the law, they have to establish an ISMS and achieve a certification according to the ISO27001 by the end of January 2018. The municipal utilities of Newtown (name changed) are faced with this. That is why they did their research and eventually chose the solution that best matches their needs with which they can fulfill all lawful requirements.

Network enabled IT monitoring according to lawful requirements

Alarm central for the monitoring of mission-critical infrastructure

Who, when, where?
Manage access securely – always

The ideal starter solution: The MultiSensor-LAN detects up to 19 physical threats with just one device and therefore can replace seven conventional sensors. It offers comprehensive monitoring functionality and full SNMP V2 support. It can either be operated as a stand-alone solution or in connection with an AlarmManager-PRO (or StarterSet-PRO respectively). The MultiSensor-LAN is powered via PoE and has an integrated web server.

The AlarmManager is the intelligent alarm central of the system; all the information of the MultiSensors merge here. The AlarmManager is mounted in the server room or rack and forwards all alarm or fault messages to the responsible persons. The configuration happens via a comfortable web interface. All system messages are filed in an internal database.

Access control made easy: Existing doors can easily be rebuilt with the Wireless Door Knob and therefore made online-compatible. In the next step, the door can be integrated into the system. The door can be unlocked with RFID mediums for which sufficient authorization is needed that can be granted via the control center in the AccessManager. This way, your entire premises are secured against unauthorized access.
