Secured by Cimetrics™

Today, Building Automation Systems (BAS) play a vital role in enabling buildings to facilitate our increasing reliance on the indoor environment. At the same time, BAS and IT infrastructures are merging and creating concerns that BAS becomes the unprotected cybersecurity attack surface that can cause economic, public relation, and safety havoc to enterprise systems and occupants alike.

Having benefited from “security through obscurity” for decades, the BAS industry is now in need of a broad security framework that leverages IT security techniques and best practices to address the unique needs of BAS vendors, integrators, as well as building owners and managers.

Enter Secured by Cimetrics™

Secured by Cimetrics™ is a security framework created to ensure that the automation systems in buildings and facilities are defended from cybersecurity threats. The Secured by Cimetrics™ framework includes software, network devices, tools, professional services, and a holistic certification program, all to ensure that every element of an automation system has the best and necessary defenses against cyber attack. Secured by Cimetrics™ enables system vendors, integrators and facility managers to focus on their core expertise and value-add, and not on attempting to develop, install or maintain difficult and often questionable security features for their products, services, and facilities. The Secured by Cimetrics™ brand was created to provide vendors, integrators, building owners and managers with the peace of mind that products, services, installed systems, and processes used for buildings and facilities have been designed and implemented with the highest level of cybersecurity awareness.
