Genetec Receives Cybersecurity Readiness Certification From UL
Genetec’s Security Center Omnicast VMS received the UL 2900-2-3 Level 3 cybersecurity certification, the highest level of assessment certification.
MONTREAL — Genetec, a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions, announces that Security Center Omnicast, its video management system (VMS), received the UL 2900-2-3 Level 3 cybersecurity certification.
UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program (CAP) tests network-connectable products and systems against established criteria from the UL 2900 series of cybersecurity standards.
Following a standardized methodology, the UL 2900-2-3 standard applies a three-tiered evaluation model, ranking with an increasing level of security for each tier.
Level 3 (L3), which has been achieved by Security Center Omnicast, includes a series of checks including fuzz testing, code and binary analysis, penetration testing, risk assessment methodology and vulnerability testing, according to the company. L3 is the highest level of assessment certification.
“UL is a globally recognized safety and security solutions company dedicated to promoting safe environments. The UL 2900-2-3 certification was created with three possible levels of certifications to test physical security systems for cybersecurity integrity,” says Chris Hasbrook, UL’s vice president & general manager, building & life safety technologies division. “After passing our most challenging testing processes, Genetec ranks at the top in its industry for cybersecurity resilience and trust.”
“Many security companies claim to follow cybersecurity best practices, noting that their software and systems are ‘hardened’ against cyber-attacks. By participating in this certification process, our Level 3 ranking proves and validates the Genetec ‘Security of Security’ initiative —which we have been sharing with our channel partners, integrators, press and end-users for many years now,” says Mathieu Chevalier, lead security architect, Genetec. “We’ve always taken an active approach to architecting our unified security solutions with intelligent and fastidious attention to cybersecurity.”
