PITTSFORD, N.Y. -
LenelS2, the global leader in advanced security systems and services, has achieved three key accomplishments demonstrating its commitment to cybersecurity. The company has attained compliance with the NIST SP 800-53 cybersecurity standard, had its Elements™ cloud-based solution accepted into the Cloud Security Alliance’s (CSA) Security, Trust, Assurance, and Risk (STAR) Level 1 Registry, and has been selected as a winner of the Global InfoSec Award by Cyber Defense Magazine. LenelS2 is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions.
LenelS2 has earned independent verification of compliance with the NIST SP 800-53 standard for its OnGuard®, NetBox™, and Elements™ access control platforms. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) develops cybersecurity standards, guidelines, best practices, and other resources to meet the needs of U.S. industry, federal agencies and the broader public. NIST Special Publication 800-53 (“NIST SP 800-53") provides a catalog of security and privacy controls for organizations to protect organizational operations and assets, individuals, and other organizations from a diverse set of threats and risks.
Additionally, LenelS2’s Elements cloud-based access control solution was accepted into the Cloud Security Alliance’s (CSA) Security, Trust, Assurance and Risk (STAR) Level 1 Registry, which provides increased transparency around the company’s security and compliance posture and security controls it has in place.
“LenelS2 is committed to staying at the forefront of cybersecurity, and we’re constantly working to ensure our products and services are as secure as possible,” said John Deskurakis, Chief Product Security Officer, Carrier. “Cybersecurity is not just a feature or update, but a fundamental requirement for the industry. That’s why we’re continually obtaining new certifications and implementing best practices across our portfolio.”
These new certifications add to the cybersecurity-related accomplishments LenelS2 has achieved this year, including the recent announcement that it won the Global InfoSec Award in the category of Best Product Portfolio, Access Control. These awards recognize products and companies who manage, create and offer the most-respected information security products and services around the globe.
“LenelS2 embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today; providing a cost-effective solution; and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
