The two-level security architecture of TACTICS smartGuard ensures safe operation. To access monitoring functions, you’ll need to enter a username and password, but for active interventions, such as changing traffic light switching plans; you’ll need to enter an additional mobile PIN, which is sent to your mobile device.

First and foremost, Siemens will host and guard your system data on our own private servers, instead of putting critical data on a server in a public cloud.

In addition, Siemens has its own dedicated security group with experience handling issues that have consequences on scales both personal and global. National governments regularly consult our experts on matters of technology and information security. Healthcare providers rely on our systems for privacy and integrity of data and, internationally, we’ve developed security standards for communicating with traffic signal controllers.

TACTICS smartGuard is a flexible, economical and easy-to-use web-based mobile traffic control center that can protect your traffic signal data and the integrity of your operation. Nothing could be smarter, easier, more scalable or secure.

You’ve never been more in control.
