Building Automation and Management Systems

Modern buildings are increasingly integrated. Building Management Systems (BMS) and Building Automation Systems (BAS) are connecting critical components such as HVAC, access control, elevators and IP cameras to form a unified IoT system. This connectivity is powering whole new levels of efficiency and innovation, but with these gains come serious new challenges.

“Almost 20% of organizations have detected an IoT-based attack in the past three years.”
– Gartner 2018 IoT Security Survey Report: Refreshed 3 October 2019, Published 14 May 2018
Adversaries now have an expanded attack surface to target as these connected building networks have merged with business networks, third-party facilities, managed service providers, and even other vendor networks. BMS and BAS systems often contain easily exploitable and unpatchable legacy systems that are years away from replacement. Once adversaries have access to BMS and BAS systems, they can compromise the BMS or BAS systems directly or move laterally to other parts of the enterprise network. At the same time, traditional methods for connecting and segmenting geographically dispersed building management networks is costly and complex.

Seamless Segmentation and Security for Smart Building Networks

  • LinkGuard offers highly effective security protection that you can easily overlay on top of existing BMS networks, without the need for system device replacements, system upgrades, reconfigurations, or new software installation.
  • LinkGuard helps cloak your network infrastructure, creating secure network segments that are invisible to bad actors and immune from external discovery, cyber-attack, and data exfiltration. LinkGuard protection is effective even for systems that may already be compromised by attackers.
  • The solution is easy to deploy and manage. It offers secure remote administration and can even be deployed in phases as your network evolves. Plus, LinkGuard won’t disrupt or slow down operations.
