Nowhere is it more important than buildings to have a holistic view when it comes to cybersecurity. Since buildings typically last for decades, any system installed in them will need to consider cybersecurity through the full lifecycle of construction, commissioning, operation, and repeated refurbishment.
Secured by Cimetrics was created with reference to the NIST Framework 1.1, a framework designed to provide private-sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure with the standards and best practices to help manage cybersecurity risks. Secured by Cimetrics does not just secure the automation network; it facilitates the integration of the IT tools and processes used during incident response and recovery following a breach.
The SbC Management stack is a holistic security system made up of three discrete components that work in unison to provide the desired results. As a provider to OEM manufacturers, these components provide a pick-and-choose model allowing our customers to integrate appropriate parts of Secured by Cimetrics into complex product lines.
The SbC Management Cloud brings the management of multi-building automation systems into a single, cloud-based platform. Securely connecting to SbC Appliances, the SbC Cloud enables the administration of SbC Managed Devices, secure BACnet Firewalls, and BACnet Routers. SbC Cloud provides a single point of management for incident response, and it integrates with the IT and cybersecurity organizations’ view of building automation systems.
The SbC Appliance is a security appliance installed on-premise that orchestrates the management of automation and control devices from installation through operation, maintenance, and incident response. SbC Appliances can also provide a local user interface in cases where no connection to the cloud is possible or desired.
An SbC Managed Device is a BACnet/SC device that can be managed by the Secured by Cimetrics management platform, including being locally managed by the SbC Orchestrator Appliance and remotely managed by SbC Management Cloud.
