DSC PowerSeries Neo intrusion panel from Johnson Controls first in France to receive new cybersecurity certification

DSC PowerSeries Neo intrusion panel from Johnson Controls first in France to receive new cybersecurity certification.

Johnson Controls has announced that the PowerSeries Neo intrusion panel from DSC is the first intrusion alarm panel to be awarded the NF & A2P certification for cybersecurity protection from CNPP, the French national authority for risk prevention and control.

The groundbreaking NF & A2P certification was awarded to DSC PowerSeries Neo under a newly created category that evaluates and certifies a security product's cybersecurity readiness. The certification recognizes PowerSeries Neo's ability to withstand cyberattacks, using 128-bit AES encryption technology on Ethernet and cellular communication paths, ensuring the integrity of the system even in the event of an IP network failure.

"Security system installers, businesses and homes in France can now select a security system with the highest confidence that it has been designed and produced using nationally recognized cybersecurity criteria designed to protect network integrity and privacy," said Maciej Polak, intrusion product marketing manger, EMEA, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. "Our position as the first company in France to obtain this distinguished CNPP authority recognition further highlights the Johnson Controls commitment to providing solutions that are designed with cybersecurity as a central tenant of product design and development."

The hybrid and feature-rich PowerSeries Neo is a uniquely flexible and modular platform that can provide for a wide spectrum of intrusion industry needs, ranging from residential through to scalable commercial enterprises. Along with its use of 128 bit AES encryption, PowerSeries Neo capitalizes on PowerG, a leading-edge wireless intrusion technology, to offer features such as Multichannel, Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology, Adaptive Transmission Power, high transmission ranges and TDMA synchronized communication.

The new NF & A2P cybersecurity category is awarded in collaboration with CNPP and ANSSI, the French National Agency for information systems security. To achieve certification, products are evaluated by CNPP on a variety of technical specifications, such as the overall level of security, level of access and autonomy as well as an evaluation of the manufacturer processes for development and production.
