SbC Firewall/Router

Secured by Cimetrics™ (SbC) is a framework designed to secure all BACnet devices. Devices conforming to the newly released BACnet/SC protocol use an inherently secure TLS-based data link; BACnet/IP and MS/TP devices, however, do not have secure data links. To facilitate bringing these devices into the secure SbC framework, SbC includes the concept of Firewall/Routers that provides an intelligent and configurable barrier which reduces the risks from unsecured devices.
