Genetic says the certification validates its resilience against cyber-attack.
UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program 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. The Level 3 certification includes a series of checks including fuzz testing, code and binary analysis, penetration testing, risk assessment methodology, and vulnerability testing.
“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,” said Chris Hasbrook, UL’s vice president and general manager, Building & Life Safety Technologies Division, in a statement. “After passing our most challenging testing processes, Genetec ranks at the top in its industry for cybersecurity resilience and trust.”
Mathieu Chevalier, lead security architect, Genetec Inc., said the following in a prepared statement, “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.”
