The BSIA accredits Texecom for cyber security

by Geny Caloisi

Texecom’s Digital Services platforms have received Cyber Security Product Assurance Group (CySPAG) accreditation from the BSIA.

CySPAG was created in 2017 by the BSIA to ensure that cybersecurity products entering the market are of the best quality.

Following a strict assessment procedure to meet a set criteria level, Texecom Cloud Services, Texecom Connect (application), Texecom Monitor, and Texecom SmartCom all successfully received the CySPAG accreditation is valid for 12 months before it is renewed to meet the latest cyber requirements.

Cybersecurity features are considered and tested alongside other product functions throughout the product development process, following the secure development lifecycle.  This reduces the number and severity of any potential security flaws in the product before it enters the market.

Additionally, cybersecurity best practice processes are assessed, including ensuring that all default passwords are unique and that multi-factor authentication is used to minimise attack surfaces.

To receive CySPAG accreditation, Texecom had to demonstrate effective and efficient communication policies for security updates and a pro-active vulnerability disclosure policy allowing customers to report any unlikely security vulnerabilities they encountered.

Steve Lampett, Technical Manager, BSIA, said: “We are delighted that Texecom has joined the CySPAG registration scheme. Registering on the platform sends out a message of confidence throughout the supply chain that cybersecurity has been addressed not only at a product level during the design and manufacturing process but also includes the ongoing support to ensure the installed product maintains its resilience to cyber-attack.”

Alex Toohie, Compliance Manager, Texecom, said: “Our Texecom digital services platforms provide many benefits to both professional security installers and their end-user customers. Receiving this accreditation not only underpins our focus on cyber security across all of these platforms but also provides peace of mind to our users as we strive to improve the performance and security of our digital services constantly.”
