Building Automation

Proven solutions that secure backdoor vulnerabilities

Organizations often attain efficiency and increase output by providing network access to everyone on the premises. While this practice is counter to system security, it persists for the sake of convenience and cost sensitivity relative to IT staffing and facilities management. Facility owners may omit in risk-management planning dedicated expertise in cyber hazard and mitigation. Typically, the staff team responsible for organizational security, while adept at physical secure-facility management, lacks training in advanced cybersecurity.

While control systems such as SCADA have in many ways improved industrial control system (ICS) operation, they were not built to accommodate the types of upgrades necessary to patch cyber-vulnerabilities. The benefits afforded by computerized control systems are severely offset by the critical vulnerabilities they fail to counter.

Our solution

3eTI understands how important it is to achieve and maintain a robust operations technology (OT) security program. 3eTI solutions are designed to protect data and server downtime from cyber-attack. We provide organizations with the ability to securely monitor and control areas for potential physical and cyber intrusions and allows for more efficient management of facility energy utilities.

Our systems utilizes an array of industrial control and communication technologies to provide secure monitoring and control of designated infrastructure equipment such as HVAC systems, generators, water treatment pumps and the like. We integrate SCADA/DDC systems into a local monitoring, control and reporting architecture.

Protecting BACnet

ICS security experts have long warned that common BAS protocols that include BACnet and Modbus, among others, are dangerously susceptible to cyber-intrusion. Firewall and firewall alternatives for securing BACnet protection provide inadequate security for this protocol and are often too complicated for efficient management by engineering personnel.

How we do it

  • Assure stable business continuity and operational visibility
  • Maintain a segmented cybersecurity architecture
  • Incorporate failover, redundancy and load-balancing capabilities
  • Provide a scalable architecture for additional volume as needed
  • Enable centralized monitoring of operations and technology
