January 14, 2019 - Boston based Cimetrics announced the launch of Secured by Cimetrics, a framework designed to address BAS (Building Automation System) cybersecurity threats in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT).
As the number of IoT devices and systems increase in the coming years, BAS vendors, system integrators, facility managers and building owners have become more conscious of the risks posed by cybersecurity attacks. As a provider of BAS connectivity solutions for 30 years, Cimetrics is positioned to understand and address the needs of BAS industry players, which, when combined with Cimetrics’ experience serving IT departments, provides a set of technologies, best practices, and resources to bridge these two worlds.
Among the offerings, Cimetrics will fully implement the impending BACnet/SC (Secure Connect) into all its BACnet related products. BACnet/SC is currently in public review from the ASHRAE BACnet Committee SSPC135.
With Secured by Cimetrics , device and system vendors will be able to incorporate software and best practices to make their products more secure. System integrators will be able to rely on Secured by Cimetrics based products and best practices to provide defenses from attacks. Likewise, building owners and their IT departments will be able to rely on Secured by Cimetrics as a security framework to guard their facility against the impact of cybersecurity breaches.
More information on the Secured by Cimetrics framework will roll out in 2019. Companies interested in securing buildings and facilities are invited to engage with Cimetrics as it works on forming an ecosystem to deliver solutions for IT departments.
