Videcon has announced the introduction of Sequrinet password protection on its professional recording devices. From April 2017, installers and integrators will have the option of enhanced password control (EPC). This will prohibit the use of 1234 and other easily infiltrated passwords and only allow the use of those that feature a combination of numbers, lower case letters, upper case letters and symbols. Passwords will also need to be more than five characters in length.
Enhanced password control will remove the use of drop-down user name profiles. Upon selection, the EPC function will remove any backdoor user capability and will disable P2P and DDNS options by default.
Videcon states that in some applications a high level of security will not be required: therefore EPC implementation is optional. Organisations requiring a stringent level of password protection can simply enable the feature.
