One of the primary security challenges in digital signage networks is unauthorized access. To mitigate this risk, it's essential to implement robust authentication mechanisms and access controls. Utilize strong, unique passwords, multi-factor authentication, and role-based access control to limit privileges based on job responsibilities. Breeze Digital Signage offers the ability to assign specific users access restrictions, to ensure they only have access to what they need to utilize, in addition to requiring a sign-on each time Breeze is accessed.

Authentication and Access Control
Protecting the integrity of your content is paramount. Malicious users may attempt to manipulate or replace your content with inappropriate material, potentially harming your brand's reputation. To combat this, regularly audit and monitor your content, and consider establishing content approval workflows within your team. Employ secure channels for content updates, encrypt content during transmission, and consider using digital signatures to verify content authenticity. Breeze has a login activity log within it’s configuration panel, so you are always able to see who last logged into your server.
The network infrastructure supporting digital signage must be secure. Luckily, Breeze Digital Signage is extremely secure, using encrypted data and SSL/TLS security. This allows Breeze to be installed in many locations without the need for any special network configurations. Upload and download with peace of mind: you're secure with Breeze!
Often overlooked, physical security measures are crucial for preventing tampering, vandalism, and theft. Consider installing locks or enclosures to protect digital signage displays and media players. Place signage displays out of reach and in well-monitored areas to reduce the risk of physical attacks. Our Breeze Players are small and easily kept behind a display!
