Johnson Controls recently announced that its VideoEdge network video recording (NVR) platform from American Dynamics is the first product to be officially certified as meeting the UL 2900-2-3 cybersecurity standards from UL (Underwriters Laboratories) for Life Safety and Security.
UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) tests network-connectable products and systems against established criteria from the UL 2900 series of cybersecurity standards.
The UL CAP program also assesses a manufacturer’s processes for cybersecure product development, incident response and internal testing and evaluation of products’ security vulnerabilities.
To garner the Level 3 certification — the highest UL CAP designation — the VideoEdge NVR platform underwent a series of evaluations based on UL 2900-2-3, a standard developed specifically for the electronic physical security industry, which assesses a product’s software vulnerabilities and weaknesses and reviews its exposure to exploitation and known malware.
“We’re extremely proud of this first UL CAP certification, as it encapsulates the ethos of our Tyco, Cyber Protection Product Security Program and our product engineering, development and support culture, which is to provide our customers with solutions designed to meet a high degree of security and reliability and provide a positive operational impact,” said William Brown, senior engineering manager, Cyber Protection Program, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls.
