Automated Cyber Security and Operations for Smart City Devices
Automatically verify that devices deployed in smart cities are always up and running.
Protect these devices against malicious actors exploiting vulnerabilities to jeopardize the city’s security and operational posture.
IoT devices make cities smart
Municipalities massively deploy IoT devices to create a smart and safe perimeter, and enhance citizen experience. These systems help reduce energy, contribute to a healthier environment, improve traffic, ensure public safety, optimize street lighting, and more. The collection and storage of critical and individual data represent the cornerstone of smart cities, and an essential asset to be protected.
Costly manual maintenance
Inherent cyber vulnerabilities
Start using a solution to gain full visibility and control over connected devices, and answer questions such as:
How can I predict and prevent operational issues affecting any of my connected devices?
SecuriThings Horizon drives predictive maintenance for IoT devices by providing device health metrics in real-time and leveraging advanced analytics.
How can I ensure any of my devices is not currently targeted by a hacker or a malicious insider?
SecuriThings Horizon provides endpoint protection capabilities for each and every supported device, detecting and mitigating cyber-threats in real-time.
How can I reduce my ongoing operational costs?
SecuriThings Horizon helps remotely manage both risk mitigation and ongoing maintenance of all supported devices, in an automated manner and one unified view.
Which devices can be monitored?
International airports, road and rail crossings on land borders, and seaports – represent sensitive areas and are therefore covered with physical security devices (video surveillance, access control, etc.), to support security staff and facilities. More and more of these devices are becoming IP-enabled, embedding smart systems such as facial and license plate recognition.
Streetlighting –Cities equip their streetlights with sensors (movement, illuminance, weather, and more) to dim, brighten, switch on or off the lights based on the outer conditions, making their maintenance and control straightforward and cost-effective.
Waste management –Municipalities deploy sensors to optimize waste collecting schedules as well as the use of waste containers by tracking waste levels and providing route optimization and operational analytics.
Smart parking –These solutions uses connected devices and road-surface sensors to solve one of municipalities’ biggest challenges by showing available parking spots in real time.
Smart meters –The shift from mechanical and electronic to connected metering enables utilities such as electricity, gas and water to benefit from remote monitoring, reveal energy consumption patterns, bill each household accurately, improve maintenance and drive significant cost reduction.
Traffic lights –Cities deploy smart traffic lights and controllers to monitor the traffic flow, automatically alter the lights based on the current traffic situation and historical data to prevent congestion and enhance safety on the road.
Environment sensors –Municipalities are expected to ensure and maintain a healthy environment for their citizens. The massive deployments of devices and sensors allow to monitor water quality (pH level, dissolved oxygen and ions, etc.), and air quality along busy roads and around plants (amount of CO, nitrogen, sulfur oxides, etc.)
