Automated Cyber Security and Operations for Building Automation Devices
Automatically verify that building automation devices are always up and running.
Protect building automation devices deployed in organizations against hackers exploiting vulnerabilities to jeopardize the building’s security and operational posture.
IoT is advancing building automation beyond mere optimizations
Building management systems (BMS) or building automation systems (BAS) are massively deployed across industries as a game-changer for facilities managers to save time and money, reduce energy waste, and ease the operational management of their largest and costliest components. These systems leverage IoT to provide in-depth data and an automatic control of a building’s main operating functions. However, BMS mostly operate in silos with no clear picture of the overall building’s health posture. Any downtime of these devices can jeopardize the overall operations, leading to security and safety issues.
Costly manual maintenance
Inherent cyber vulnerabilities
Start using a solution to gain full visibility and control over connected devices, and answer questions such as:
How can I predict and prevent operational issues affecting any of my connected devices?
SecuriThings Horizon drives predictive maintenance for IoT devices by providing device health metrics in real-time and leveraging advanced analytics.
How can I reduce my ongoing operational costs?
SecuriThings Horizon helps remotely manage both risk mitigation and ongoing maintenance of all supported devices, in an automated manner and one unified view.
How can I ensure any of my devices is not currently targeted by a hacker or a malicious insider?
SecuriThings Horizon provides endpoint protection capabilities for each and every supported device, detecting and mitigating cyber-threats in real-time.
Which devices can be monitored?
HVAC –The shift from standard to integrated HVAC systems enable building owners to significantly reduce costs by controlling consumption. While most maintenance tasks are to be performed manually (e.g. replacing filters and thermostats), these devices represent an operational liability when managed at scale. HVAC systems requires predictive and preventative maintenance to avoid failures which can lead to closing areas and major repair expenses.
Smart meters –Moving from mechanical and electronic to connected metering, utilities such as electricity, gas and water can provide building owners with full visibility on their energy consumption. This real-time monitoring drives significant cost reduction. While these devices are deployed at scale to collect data from every area of the building, any malfunction or cyber- threat can affect the operational efficiency.
Smart lighting –Lighting represents one of the main sources of energy consumption and is therefore prime for IoT initiatives. Organizations and building owners deploy connected lighting solutions embedding scheduling and dimming capabilities according to time and weather conditions, as well as motion sensors and passive infrared sensors which register occupancy and adjust the lighting accordingly.
Smart elevators and escalatorsElevators and escalators come equipped with capabilities beyond their mechanical function. Their digitalization allows to collect analyze and store data in order to provide a smooth, safe and efficient people flow as well as to identify operational issues.
Sensors –Connected sensors embedded within smart devices deployed in large scale allow to collect tremendous amount of data, driving decision-making. From occupancy monitoring to smoke detectors, the massive deployment of connected sensors represents a liability for any building manager as they are vulnerable and prone to failures.
