Johnson Controls has signed a framework agreement with Nozomi Networks, allowing Johnson Controls to utilise the Nozomi Networks toolset for the benefit of its customers. Johnson Controls also participated in last year’s $100 million funding round for Nozomi Networks – further signalling its commitment to deliver specialised cybersecurity solutions for its OpenBlue secure communications stack.
“Johnson Controls is at the forefront of digitising the built environment through our innovative OpenBlue platform, and we are continuously looking for opportunities to maximise safety, improve efficiency and ensure business continuity, said Vijay Sankaran, chief technology officer, Johnson Controls. “Our investment in Nozomi Networks’ leading threat assessment toolset reflects the importance of cybersecurity in this digital transformation.”
Johnson Controls recently announced its purchase of Tempered Networks, which will be embedded into the OpenBlue platform, a flexible computing approach for converging building technologies and making those technologies more insightful, powerful, and optimised. Tempered Networks protects secure buildings data from edge to cloud with zero trust based Airwall technology. Nozomi Networks’ capabilities can further extend the capabilities of a customers’ IoT infrastructure by providing additional cybersecurity threat monitoring and visibility features and functionality.
