Secured by Cimetrics™ Early Access Program

In order to rapidly bring Secured by Cimetrics (secure solution to the buildings) to the market, facilitate consensus, and educate the industry to deliver the level of security demanded by IT and today’s enterprises, Cimetrics continues working with industry leaders on an invitation-only SbC Early Access program (SbC-EA).

SbC-EA is a deliberative and collaborative process for participating member companies to quickly deliver the benefits of SbC as well as to arrive at de facto standards that will benefit the BAS industry at large. It is Cimetrics’ expectation that, as these de facto standards achieve commercial acceptance, some will be contributed to de jure standards organizations for formal adoption.
