Cyber and data security

Cyber and data security

Cyber and data security are essential topics that Bosch takes very seriously. Bosch solutions can be trusted to deliver the right levels of performance, durability, and security by design for absolute peace of mind.

Because video data is often highly critical and sensitive, every component of the video security infrastructure, including cameras, storage devices, network communication, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and video management software needs to be addressed. That is why Bosch embraces an end-to-end approach to maximize data security and ensure the proper measures are in place for physical safety and cybersecurity.

Our system approach to data security enables Bosch products to be approved for government applications, including Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security facilities globally. In addition, Bosch offers an IP video and data security guidebook to assist integrators in hardening Bosch IP video products to adhere to federal government network security policies and procedures.

Bosch products for government applications

Bosch video cameras

Video systems

Video systems

Bosch video systems are installed in the highest level of federal government facilities, and select products have been confirmed for reliability and functionality through the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security test agencies.

All Bosch IP cameras are offered with artificial intelligence (AI) as a built-in standard. Their AI capabilities enable them to understand what they’re seeing and to add meaning to captured video with metadata. Machine learning technology enables tailoring the camera’s built-in Video Analytics to detect the things that matter most.

The cameras integrate seamlessly with Bosch products from across the portfolio as well as with command and control platforms to help make personnel more effective and efficient. Bosch video systems also integrate with solutions from our integration partners and are capable of operating in a Common Access Platform.

To ensure our solutions have the resilience to withstand even harsh environments, we have taken measures to develop extremely rugged cameras, like the MIC family, that are built to perform in practically any environment.

Intrusion alarm systems

Intrusion alarm systems

Bosch solutions for intrusion detection are field-proven for government environments, including buildings, facilities, and cleared sites. They are tested and approved for Department of Homeland Security applications.

Bosch control panels are designed to easily integrate with access control, Bosch IP video solutions, and more. With this integration, the control panel accepts alarms from various devices – such as motion detectors, security cameras and more – and uses those alarms to trigger system actions, such as sending a text message of an alarm with a video snapshot to authorized personnel. This integration delivers increased security and centralized control of security and video devices and doors, helping to reduce complexity for system users.

Communications systems

Communications systems

The Bosch Communications Systems family of brands includes solutions for paging and mass notification, radio dispatch and aviation solutions, and annunciation and voice evacuation. They are tested and approved for Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security applications.

Highly flexible, they easily scale from medium to large sized environments. Integration with Bosch and third-party systems for video, and intrusion and fire detection enables automated audio announcements based on security and safety events and centralized control for easier operation.

Bosch also offers a range of highly secure and extremely versatile conference systems that meet needs that range from small local events to giant international summits, such as United Nations and NATO Conferences.

Fire detection

Fire detection

AVIOTEC video-based flame and smoke detection provides reliable and early notification in challenging spaces, including those with dust, dirt, and condensation, and in areas with volatile elements, such as chemicals or fuel, where immediate detection is critical. In environments with high ceilings, such as aircraft hangars and warehouses, smoke dilutes or can be blown away by airflow and ventilation systems before it reaches a ceiling detector. Bosch AVIOTEC detects fires where they start, enabling immediate alarm verification, speeding reaction times, and improving rescue response.

AVIOTEC cameras integrate with existing platforms and Bosch audio communications for immediate notification to personnel and visitors to a facility.

Management software

Management software

To support data-driven evidence investigation, the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) consolidates and augments data from multiple sensors and provides intuitive alarm management and interactive maps. This enables operators to establish a decision center, giving them a single, clear dashboard for detecting, reviewing, and reacting to all security and safety related incidents, while using Bosch cameras built-in AI to provide the ability to identify unforeseen or unwanted situations faster.

BVMS is field-proven in U.S. federal government applications around the world. It is scalable to grow as needs changes – even across multiple locations – while keeping the same look and feel so that no further operator training is required. It offers integration with Bosch intrusion and communications systems, as well as with third-party cameras, encoders, and software, such as radar systems, to give operators one interface to receive and process alarms.

Compared to other systems, BVMS allows for maximum resilience. As a result, cameras keep recording and streaming live video even when multiple system components fail simultaneously. This robust system architecture enables personnel to respond to threats even in disaster scenarios.

Expanding innovation: Addressing complex challenges in government

Counter unmanned aircraft systems

Counter unmanned aircraft systems

Drones pose a danger for government sites and can cause costly disruptions, safety incidents, and potential security breaches. At the same time, the risk of a drone incident is increasing due to the growing number of remote-controlled drones for private use, including video-equipped aerial vehicles. Operators need a visual perspective to assess a threat and determine whether a drone may be carrying cameras or even explosives.

Bosch video sensors installed along perimeter fences integrate seamlessly with third-party radar technology. When radar is triggered, the software relays the three-dimensional coordinates to the closest ground-mounted security camera, which confirms whether the object is a drone and tracks its course. Integration with command and control platforms provides easier operation and a faster response from personnel.

Controlling site access

Controlling site access

Bosch products integrate seamlessly with the leading access control systems for federal government facilities. Integration with Bosch video sensors improves overall security by providing detailed visual information about the circumstances surrounding events or alarms in the access control system, increasing situational awareness and helping operators to respond more accurately and efficiently. In addition, manual video verification adds an extra layer of security at doors, ensuring the person requesting access matches the database.

Active PIDS solution

Perimeter intrusion detection systems

Perimeter intrusion detection systems

Early detection of perimeter breaches can be challenging for operators monitoring standard raw video, and they can miss important events. Bosch is a leader in the development of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions for perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDs) that use video sensors to automatically detect and alert to line crossing, area breaching, objects left behind, and loitering. Using a combination of thermal and moving cameras provides long-distance detection for early intervention in critical areas and the ability to automatically track objects or people as they move throughout the area. These capabilities are possible using a complete solution from Bosch or by integrating Bosch cameras with third-party offerings. PID solutions incorporating Bosch products are field proven in U.S. federal government applications around the world.
