Introducing the Cyber Protection Program from Tyco Security Products

Developed over five years, Tyco Security Products Cyber Protection Program is one of the first in the industry to offer a holistic approach to cybersecurity for physical security products. We’re committed to cybersecurity through a product’s entire lifecycle — from requirements through obsolescence.


We’ve developed our cybersecurity expertise after many years of providing critical solutions for the United States government and large multinational customers, and we hold several industry firsts, including FISMA-ready access control and video solutions.

Six Part Approach to Cyber Protection
Our Cyber Protection Program’s six -part approach to cyber protection for physical security products looks far beyond components and devices and cyber security hardening. The scrutiny begins with the initial product concept and requirements, continues through analysis of system design and programming, and culminates with final testing, integration and evaluation.

  • Secure Product Development Practices – Secure coding and testing reduces the possibility of inadvertently introducing vulnerabilities during product development
  • Inclusive Protection of Components and Systems – Include range of capabilities to complement diverse security needs
  • Configuration Guidelines for Compliance – Provide comprehensive procedures on how to configure C•CURE 9000, VideoEdge and victor systems
  • Testing Procedures – Products undergo rigorous, continuous testing both internally and with an independent test house, to minimize the risk of security updates and new configurations in our cyber-compliant products
  • Rapid Response to Vulnerabilities – Quickly assesses the situation, distributes an advisory bulletin and follow up with fully qualified patches
  • Education and Advocacy – Maintain critical training and development certifications, speaks and advocates for cyber protection for security systems

Tyco’s Cyber Protection Team
Our autonomous cyber protection team, an independent branch of the development group, has deep process control knowledge and specialized expertise in cyber concerns with physical security systems.

Learn more about our Cyber Protection Program and how we are working to protect physical security products from attacks, damages, disruptions and misuse.

InnometriksTyco Security Products announced as of 13 May 2016, it has acquired substantially all of the assets of Innometriksand 2DogsStudios, developers of high assurance readers, software and mobile solutions for FIPS-201 (Federal Information Processing Standard) smart card credentials.

This acquisition strengthens Tyco Security Products’ position in the federal market by adding the Innometriks team’s open, seamless high-assurance solution integrated directly into Tyco Security Products’ Software House C•CURE 9000 access control and security management ecosystem, as well as enabling the ability to integrate with systems from other manufacturers. This is achieved with an open architecture that moves government credential authentication directly into the physical access panel, and leveraging OSDP (Open Supervised Device Protocol) capable readers. These combined technologies will become part of Tyco Security Products’ access control solution portfolio.

The combination of Tyco Security Products and Innometriks creates an offering that provides a fast, open, modular, and cost effective solution for high assurance needs.   The benefits of this acquisition not only extend to the government market, but also to commercial customers who require high assurance access control systems.  We are very excited to have the Innometriks and 2DogStudios become a part of our access control solutions and future roadmaps.

For more information or any questions please contact your local area sales representative or Jason Ouellette.
