Amsig understands the security of your equipment is vital to your business and mission. That is why all of our trailers’ cabinets are lockable, why all of our signs come with passwords, and why we do not publish those default passwords on our website. We offer many additional security features such as removable terminals, hidden clasp locks, locking lug nuts, tamper alarms, and GPS.
The number one security measure you can take to protect your signs from “hacking” is to change the default passwords. The Center for Internet Security recommends strong, complex passwords. Amsig message signs have multiple levels of access, and the ability to have multiple accounts for each level of access. Creating unique passwords will provide you the greatest “first line of defense” after physical security of your cabinets.
The next most important step in securing your Amsig signs is protecting them from “remote hacks,” which can involve harmful message displays, or malicious cellular activity. Amsig’s secure VPN removes the need to acquire a public static IP address from your cellular carrier in order to operate your signs remotely, which means someone with ill intent will not be able to find your devices quickly or easily. This affordable security solution comes with access to our ITS Cloud Manager software. Contact us today to learn more about Amsig’s VPN and ITS Cloud Manager.
