Lynxspring announces SecureLYNX cyber-threat protection
January 28, 2013 - Lynxspring announced SecureLYNX cyber-threat protection solution that secures, manages and monitors account access and activities across building automation networks and the devices connected to them.
Consisting of mechanical, electrical, and lighting, as well as heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, building systems are essential in ensuring facilities run at peak performance levels, operate efficiently and provide a safe environment for occupants. Having direct and secure access to these systems and continuing to maintain the integrity of a business’s network is important not only to the business itself, but often for public safety and national security.
Designed with building operations in mind, SecureLYNX creates “shields of security” and pre-emptive threat protection for the devices and systems across a building network by securing, managing, controlling, tracking and monitoring all account access and activities. The solution supports leading building automation protocols with TCP/IP networks and can be accessed from anywhere without exposing building system devices to the public internet.
- A simple and cost-effective way to create zones of security − tailored protection for groups of devices and systems minimizing cyber-threats internally and externally
- Designed specifically to protect and optimize building environments
- Easily managed and implemented, providing a single interface; supporting leading building automation protocols utilizing TCP/IP networks
- Customizable--define rules that specify which network devices are allowed to communicate, and what protocols that may be used
- Designed to be installed on existing networks with no physical changes to the existing BAS network
- Developed to be deployed on existing buildings and in new construction; single facility or multi-facility environments
