Defining Geofencing: A Digital Boundary

December 5, 2023

Ever thought about having an invisible boundary that restricts or controls certain activities? Now, bring that concept in the world of cybersecurity. That’s geofencing. Geofencing is a location-based technology that uses GPS to delineate geographical boundaries. It sets an invisible border and triggers a response when a mobile device enters or exits that area. Thus, your device acts differently based on geofencing.

Geofencing provides an extra layer of security by integrating digital protection with physical location.

Application of Geofencing in Cybersecurity

In cybersecurity, geofencing functions as an additional shield. It restricts or grants access to data and systems based on user’s geographical location. This way, geofencing reduces risks associated with cyber threats as cybercriminals from certain geographic locations can be effectively excluded.

It enables companies to set up geographical restrictions on their proprietary data and systems thereby adding a physical layer to digital security. This dramatically reduces the ‘attack surface’, making it difficult for unauthorized access or malicious cyber attacks.

With Geofencing you are not just guarding the ‘door’, but also the ‘geographical pathway’ to that door.
