With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting many organizations around the world, system administrators are forced to work from home or are extremely limited, leaving facilities vacant and potentially exposing mission-critical building technology to devastating cyber threats.
Convergint’s Cyber Protection Plus is a cybersecurity and automation program that provides 24/7 managed breach detection, threat hunting, health monitoring, and automated maintenance.
Convergint has partnered with best-of-breed firms, SecuriThings and Blackpoint, to develop a program aimed specifically at reducing cyber threats and automating operations for mission-critical building technology systems, such as video surveillance, access control, fire & life safety, and beyond.
In response to this global health crisis, Convergint is offering a 45-day FREE TRIAL of Cyber Protection Plus, allowing system administrators to protect up to five sites and 1,000 device endpoints. Contact Convergint’s cybersecurity services team to gain access to this limited time offer.
Most building technologies are meant to serve a few basic functions. Keep the building occupants safe and keep them comfortable. These seemingly simple tasks have become increasingly complex as the devices and sensors required to operate the systems become more sophisticated and more connected. An unintended consequence of connected building systems and technology is the increased risk for cyber threats and the overhead required to maintain them.
This is especially high-risk in the COVID-19 environment when buildings are vacant and system administrators are forced to connect and manage their systems from remote locations. Cyber attackers are taking advantage of the current crisis situation and are increasing their attacks on mission-critical building technology systems, such as video surveillance, access control, fire & life safety and beyond.
With Cyber Protection Plus, Convergint is providing tools to help system administrators protect, monitor, and automate their critical building technology systems during this crisis. This mission-critical building technology cybersecurity program provides 24/7 managed breach detection, threat hunting, health monitoring, and automated operations which helps to manage firmware updates and rotate device passwords.
