Genetec Receives UL 2900-2-3 Level 3 (L3) Cybersecurity Readiness Certification
UL awards Security Center Omnicast VMS system with highest level of its Cybersecurity Assurance Program in ‘Security and Life Safety’ category
MONTREAL, December 10, 2018 - Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions today announced that Security Center Omnicast™, its video management system (VMS), received the UL 2900-2-3 Level 3 cybersecurity certification. A long-standing advocate for cybersecurity and the ‘Security of Security’, Genetec participated in the UL evaluation process, which today validates its resilience against cyber-attack with the highest Level 3 (L3) assessment 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. The Level 3, 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.
"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 & 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," added Hasbrook.
"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," said Mathieu Chevalier, Lead Security Architect, Genetec Inc. "We've always taken an active approach to architecting our unified security solutions with intelligent and fastidious attention to cybersecurity," added Chevalier.
