New standard helps protect IoT security devices

Security Systems

As the Internet of Things becomes more integrated with building systems and devices, the threat of a cyberattack increases. With the implementation of electronic physical security systems, there is less of a margin for error, as an attack against your network could jeopardize your facility’s assets.

Fortunately, electronic physical security systems can now be evaluated for their ability to fend off cyberattacks with UL’s new Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP). With the new UL 2900-2-3 Standard, UL CAP provides criteria for electronic physical security systems to assess software vulnerabilities and weaknesses, minimize exploitation, address known malware, review security controls and increase security awareness.

The criteria will help manufacturers create safer, more secure products and give FMs, system integrators and retrofitters specification benchmarks that mitigate risk.

“The electronic physical security market is the cornerstone of safety and security in facilities and organizations. Cyber risks in this space are an important factor to address in securing a facility,” says Rachna Stegall, global director of connected technologies at UL. “UL believes that our UL CAP services can provide specifications that are repeatable, reproducible and measureable with objective evidence that can support a manufacturer’s claim of security assurance in such an important component of an owner’s facility.”

The criteria can be applied to surveillance cameras, emergency communication systems, fire alarm systems, alarm receiving systems, intrusion detection systems and access control systems.

Connectrac® wireways are the new standard for bringing power & communications cable management to all interior applications. Free yourself from core drilling!

Surpass State Energy Requirements with Dual-Cooling Data Center CRAC Technology

See how professionals like you are taking advantage of the highest performing precision cooling system for their computer rooms and data centers, and why Data Aire is fast-becoming the number one choice for facility managers and building owners looking to decrease their energy consumption. 

Data Aire understands how digital technology and data gravity is rapidly impacting and transforming businesses. That’s why they developed ultra-efficient cooling technology to support the most modern (and not-so-modern) data centers.  Learn how One Wilshire in Los Angeles, one of the most advanced carrier hotels today, is surpassing California's strict energy efficiency requirements with Data Aire’s purpose-built system, which provide full-economization for 260 days – almost 72% of the year. That’s a measurable savings! Furthermore, the projected PUE on an annual basis for a full load is at or below 1.2.
