Security Center 5.9

As a defense-in-depth strategy, you can deactivate any unused services and roles to reduce this risk. This reduces the number of active services in your system, and therefore the attack surface.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Video task.
  2. Select a video unit from the entity browser.
  3. In the Properties tab, clear the unused services.
  4. Click Apply.


For an Axis Q3505-V network camera, the services that should be disabled are UPnP, Bonjour, and link-local address.
