Cybersecurity Considerations for Building Automation Systems

The threat is real. So is our commitment to preparing you.

Every day, new cyber threats emerge around the world. And although most businesses are quick to devote resources to IT cybersecurity, connected building automation systems often go under-protected or even overlooked altogether. Yet they are increasingly a target of cyber attacks. The fact is, with the convenience of network-connectivity and remote access come inevitable security threats. 

Best practices, built right in.

At Trane, we take cyber threats very seriously by integrating cybersecurity best practices into our entire line-up of building automation systems. Our controls are designed to proactively provide protection  against incidents using tools such as encryption, multiple layers of access control and authentication to protect your data. A few of the ways we help protect you:

  • Trane delivers industry-leading products and solutions that can be deployed securely
  • Out-of-the-box simplicity for complex cyber security features
  • Standard features simplify sales process, installation and maintenance

Protection in action.

Better security begins in the field.

Our field IT teams live and breathe cybersecurity. We work closely with your IT and facility pros to understand your current security practices as well as your evolving goals and needs. Then we make sure our equipment meets those requirements and your team has the knowledge and actionable plans in place to adhere to cybersecurity best practices. 

Staying a step ahead of cyber attacks.

Companies that make cybersecurity a priority tend to have better track records against breaches. They weave best practice principles into their daily operations so that proactive protection becomes second nature. We’ve created a helpful guide to cybersecurity best practices based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST)
