Standard Security Recommendations for Video Security Solutions

To ensure that your recording device is secure within your network, these common practices should be followed:

  • Locate the device behind the firewall with private IP.
  • Never publish QNAP directly on the internet (no inbound NAT).
  • Keep QNAP device on separate subnet/VLAN.
  • Allow management from specific subnet/VLAN, or source IP only.
  • Open min. necessary secure ports for management such as SSH, HTTPs (no Telnet, no HTTP).
  • IPS (Intrusion Prevention) enabled on the internal firewall interface facing QNAP (optional).
  • Antimalware Scanner updates and scans run on schedule
