With the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting many organizations around the world, system administrators are forced to work from home or are extremely limited, leaving facilities vacant or not properly staffed and potentially exposing mission-critical building technology to devastating cyber threats. 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.
Convergint has partnered with best-of-breed firms, SecuriThings and Blackpoint, to develop a program called Cyber Protection Plus at no charge for 45 days. This program is 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. Convergint is providing tools to help system administrators protect, monitor, and automate their critical building technology systems during this crisis for up to 5 sites and 1000 endpoints. 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.
