“What role does the AV integrator have in regards to network security for digital signage networks?”
As an integrator, we work with a variety of end users across different verticals. We’ve been through plenty of security qualification tests prior to platform acceptance. It’s our job to make “best practice” recommendations once we understand the security requirements for the organization. We remind customers that performance, reliability and day-two support should all be considered when choosing a platform. It’s important to bring stakeholders in. This would include the group responsible for messaging and the IT staff in charge of keeping the network safe.
