Protecting OT building systems
Convergence of IT and OT in Smart Buildings
The control system for a building’s OT eco-system, including Access Control, HVAC/BAS, Fire and Life Safety, Lighting, CCTV, Electrical Power, Security, Elevators, etc. are currently maintained by many different vendors in diverse ways, and cyber security is seldom considered in these practices. When these OT systems and IoT devices connect to the outside world, they can be exposed to threats from computer viruses, malware and ransomware. When OT systems are compromised, a full re-installation of the system is often required to ensure stability and security, and this often takes weeks or even months to resolve.
With the Andorix CPaaS, we provide a unified system with centralized monitoring tools to proactively manage and alert on the status of the computer systems hard and installed software in the OT environment. This allows building owners and property managers to centrally manage system resources with a quick backup and restore service, as well as enable proactive cyber security protection management of their OT environments.
