Hikvision USA Inc. opened its Source Code Transparency Center (SCTC) in California. At the first stage, the center enables government agencies in the United States and Canada to review the source code for a wide array of select IP cameras and Network Video Recorders (NVRs) sold by Hikvision.
“In the past year we have put in place a dedicated North American cyber security team and added new cybersecurity resources for our partners,” said Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA Inc., and Hikvision Canada Inc. “Building on our recent efforts, we’re pleased to establish the industry’s first Source Code Transparency Center.”
Chuck Davis, director of cybersecurity for Hikvision North America, said Hikvision is committed to developing products and solutions that conform to the highest security standards. “By opening our source code for review, we continue to demonstrate Hikvision’s commitment to product security and transparency,” he said.
The Source Code Transparency Center affords government agencies the ability to review the Hikvision product source code in a safe and secure environment. Initiating a request for access to the SCTC is as simple as contacting a member of the Hikvision sales team. The Hikvision sales team member will work with parties to schedule an appointment to visit the SCTC, as well as provide the required nondisclosure agreement for signature.
