Johnson Controls announced that its Tyco Software House C•CURE 9000 v2.8 and Tyco American Dynamics victor 5.4.1 are the first platforms to be officially certified as meeting new third-party security standards from UL (Underwriters Laboratories) for on-premise commercial security systems.
UL-2610, which provides standards for commercial premises security alarm units and systems, updates the requirements for this technology to include cyber security provisions and cloud functionality. UL’s Commercial Premises Security Alarm Units and Systems tests alarm products and systems against established criteria. This process assesses product software’s vulnerabilities, weaknesses and reviews its exposure to exploitation. UL-2610 replaces UL-1076 and UL- 603 and will be mandatory by November 2021.
“Our focus is creating platforms and products that will be not only cyber resilient throughout their lifespan, but flexible and scalable enough to meet the future technological requirements of tomorrow,” said Sara Gardner, senior director of product management, enterprise access control and video solutions, Global Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “We’re proud to be the leaders in meeting UL’s newest benchmarks for cyber security and cloud readiness.”
As part of the Johnson Controls Product Security Program, the Software House C•CURE 9000 and American Dynamics victor platforms already meet stringent cyber security requirements. Johnson Controls Cyber Solutions takes a holistic approach to cyber security, which includes the product security program to build cyber resilience into products from design to end-of-life.
The Software House C•CURE 9000 and American Dynamics victor platforms are also early adopters of the new Canadian Standard for Alarm and Electronic Security Systems, ULC/CAN 60839-11-1. This standard applies to electronic access control systems and components for security applications.
