Like hickory smoke and beef brisket, building automation systems and secure remote access are a perfect match. At last week’s World Series of Barbecue in Kansas City, Netop CEO Kurt Bager joined Lynxspring President & CEO Terry Swope in promoting Lynxspring CyberPro – an innovative gateway for secure remote access into building automation systems.
Developed by Lynxspring in conjunction with Netop, LYNX CyberPRO is the industry’s first cyber-threat protection solution designed specifically for building automation systems and building environments. Incorporating industry proven IT security technology and methods, LYNX CyberPRO creates additional layers of protection and pre-emptive threat protection for the devices and systems across a building network by securing, managing, controlling, tracking and monitoring all account access and activities. The solution supports leading building automation protocols with TCP/IP networks and can be accessed from anywhere without exposing building system devices to the public internet.
Building control systems have evolved from standalone systems to today’s modern, highly interconnected systems. Attributes like openness and ease of connectivity are the same ones that now make building automation systems vulnerable to viruses, attacks, unauthorized access and breaches. Netop and Lynxspring have partnered to create a solution that ensures rapid and manageable remote connectivity while simultaneously reducing attack surfaces and improving system security.
During the World Series of Barbecue, Lynxspring hosted Netop and several of its industry partners in celebrating the upcoming release of CyberPro at the Lynxspring Juke Joint tent over pulled pork, smoked sausages, baked beans and potato salad. The smell of barbecue from all corners of the event and the inclusion of the partners and children of Lynxsprings’ Missouri-based employees gave the event the feel of a family celebration.
