KMC Controls, a specialist in building automation and controls, has announced a partnership with Veridify Security.
As part of the agreement, KMC will be adding DOME, Veridify’s SaaS cyber-physical security solution for Operational Technology (OT) networks and device-level building automation, to their product offering.
The firm noted that DOME provides a low-cost security platform that delivers real-time authentication and data protection to the edge of a building’s network.
KMC Controls noted that buildings are becoming smarter and more connected than at any other point in history, however, with this increased connectivity has come a greater risk from cyberattacks. Improving resiliency to these cyber threats now ranks as one of the top priorities for more than 70% of building owners and managers, according to a recent report.
Veridify, with their technology partners Intel and Amazon Web Services, developed DOME Building Automation to provide device-to-device security for new and existing building systems.
“By partnering with Veridify Security we are renewing our commitment to keep cybersecurity at the forefront of building automation innovation,” said Richard Newberry, CEO of KMC Controls. “We are focused on delivering the industry’s most advanced building control solutions and our partnership with Veridify, bringing their scalable device-level cybersecurity protection to our smart building customers, is a strong example of our mission.”
“We are excited to join KMC to bring the most advanced cyber solution for building automation to the market. KMC’s leading building control systems and fully integrated manufacturing are ideal for delivering a seamless cyber solution that actually protects the devices at the edge of a building’s OT network,” said Louis Parks, CEO and chairman of Veridify Security. “Our engineering team has created a series of software libraries that are easily embedded in an OEM’s existing product line, and our DOME Sentry solution provides low-cost security solutions for currently installed systems.”
