OULU, FINLAND – Tosibox, the innovator of easy, scalable, reliable and secure remote connections offers modern-day cyber security for Fidelix, the market leader in building automation in Finland. Fidelix uses TOSIBOX® products for the creation of remote access as well as the remote monitoring of building automation systems.
“Our customers include commercial, industry and office buildings, logistics centers, hotels and spas, and sports and leisure centers. We take cyber security seriously and appreciate the audited and patented security that TOSIBOX® provides us with,” said Antti Koskinen, Division Manager at Fidelix.
TOSIBOX® is a direct VPN tunnel between physical devices, and only trusted devices can access the network. The data cannot be accessed with passwords alone, but a physical key is always required. Even the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority FICORA recently recommended two-factor authentication for much stronger protection than mere passwords.
Secure remote access is essential in building automation as cyber-attacks can cause serious damage by for instance cutting heating from buildings. This can and has been caused by hacking and denial of service attacks to automation devices, other internet connected devices and systems. The hijacked devices have been used for instance in conducting distributed denial of service attacks. Just in Finland, there are still more than 2,000 building automation systems connected to the Internet in an unsecure fashion, according to FICORA.
”Information security is more important than ever, and TOSIBOX® solution offers a highly secure way of creating remote connections without IT skills. By choosing TOSIBOX® you can be sure your building automation systems remain safe. We also offer our expertise in cyber security in general, for instance by providing information and helpful tips about current trends and how to protect from them,” said Tero Lepistö, CEO at Tosibox.
Tosibox offers an easy and secure remote connection to the internet. The company aims to develop the best and most secure internet connection in the world to allow, for example, the implementation of solutions for the Internet of Things. TOSIBOX® products are used in 119 countries. More information can be found at www.tosibox.com
