Protect your communications system - and the information it carries - from unauthorized access
Interconnected voice and data systems have distinct advantages, including improved productivity and increased collaboration. However, they can introduce new cybersecurity risks. ASTRO systems built-in security capabilities are designed to counter cyber threats that target public safety mission-critical operations and communications.

Our holistic approach to cybersecurity includes a range of services that help personized experience.
Ensuring the integrity of data within the network is paramount to the overall security of the ASTRO platform. To enable security at every step of the way we employ a variety of methods, including secure access controls, data traffic monitoring and encryption, based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework and industry best practices.
ASTRO radios systems utilize multiple forms of authentication to verify users, radios and networking components are authorized to access the system. For example, Radio Authentication prevents clones and other unauthorized radios from joining the system, listening into communications and consuming system resources.
With end-to-end encryption, your communication stays secured as it transverses the ASTRO radio system, over-the-air and via wireline. Without the correct key, eavesdroppers are not able to listen in to your communications. The KMF provides a secure and centralized platform to manage keys.
Intrusion detection systems (IDS) monitors ASTRO network traffic for potential security threats using signature-based detection and anomaly based detection. Both identification methods allow quick reaction to active cyber threats.
