Cybersecurity for Building Automation Systems

December 10, 2019 / Nozomi Networks

Rapid adoption of IoT-based systems with the promise of significantly reducing operational costs is driving rapid growth in the building and facility automation marketplace. The purpose of these systems is to improve occupant comfort, reduce energy consumption and total cost of ownership, efficiently operate building systems, and increase the lifecycle of utilities. This digital transformation of the building automation sector involves moving away from older proprietary systems and adopting edge-to-cloud computing architectures. There is a drive to deploy lower cost sensors, both wired and wireless, to gather as much data as possible. At the same time, the industry has a considerable installed base of legacy building automation systems, applications, devices, and networks that must be managed, maintained and gradually modernized.
