Arcobel is a leading player in the world of cyber security & surveillance (i.a. video). Through our customers, our network security products find their way to banks, hospitals, or for example, insurers. We also supply products, both standard and customized, for use in the security of airports, industrial areas, ports, universities or retail chains.
The embedded computer products that we provide for these purposes are increasingly targeted by cyber criminals. These criminals are interested in, among other things, obtaining intellectual property, valuable company data or privacy-sensitive personal data. Cyber crime is expected to increase in the coming years. The number of DDoS attacks, for example, is increasing hand in hand and is forcing our society to respond.
To be able to defend computer networks against a DDoS attack, each data package must be investigated and analyzed, without causing any latency. To be able to map the complexity of an attack, a thorough behavioral analysis must also be carried out. This ensures that a considerable amount of computing power is required.
Together with our customers we think about how we can meet these challenges. We do this through the use of high-quality computer systems. We increasingly see that solutions have some form of artificial intelligence (AI). To be able to use this technique, special processors or high-performance video cards are used. The systems often have a lot of storage capacity to be able to preprocess data on the system. Storage capacity is also of high importance for forensic IT investigation in the event of a disaster. Apart from the fact that the systems must be up to date with the latest software patches, it is also important that these units are switched on 24/7. Intensive test periods prior to the approval of such a platform also ensure that products are deliverable long and identically. A trend that we see more often is to realize an external gateway that can be used as a secure fall-back connection if the main system has become unreachable.
The manufacturers and products that we represent are optimally equipped to cater to this market. As an Arcobel customer, you have access to your own system configurations, updates and variants so that the cause can be traced quickly in the event of a disaster.
Given the sensitivity in this sector, we cannot go into too much detail. If you want to know more about cyber security & surveillance and what we can do for you as Arcobel, please contact us.
So as to make automated border control a reality, we delivered industrial embedded computers to a client who wanted to use them for biometric identification. Our client required, among other things, that the hardware was trustworthy, quiet and could be delivered in identical form for a long time. We provided them with systems from the PIP series from our Swiss supplier. Nowadays, several airports around the world have begun working with this system. The traveller is recorded by the IRIS SCAN. Providing there is a positive match, the gates open.
