Barco, a world leader in control room solutions, announced it has been granted the ISO/IEC 27001 certification. This important standard on information security, cybersecurity, and privacy protection, defines the requirements an Information Security Management System (ISMS) must meet.
Operating in high-security markets, Barco’s Control Rooms business unit is extremely focused on cybersecurity. With requirements always becoming more stringent, the ISO/IEC 27001 standard is the most prominent guide for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information management system. The certification is granted for Barco’s video wall solutions and control room software (Barco CTRL). At this year’s ISE tradeshow, Barco highlighted its CTRL software along with the award-winning TruePix direct-view LED and Barco UniSee II LCD video wall technology. These flagship solutions reflect the overarching ‘Empowering control room excellence’ message.
“At Barco, we have a long legacy of working in very secure environments,” says Mathieu Dobbeleir, VP Products and Solutions at Barco. “Control rooms in the utilities, government, and airport markets, to name a few, operate in very high levels of (cyber)security. Not every manufacturer can comply with the needed standards. This ISO 27001 certification adds the trust that customers need: it not only proves the security of our processes, but also emphasizes our commitment to our customers’ security. We are very pleased with this achievement that further positions Barco as a trustworthy partner.”
Security as a portfolio focus
With over 30 years of experience in the control rooms market, we know the needs and expectations of our customers. Security is the keyword. Barco CTRL, the new software and hardware platform for control rooms, allows users to securely connect to their sources, from any location, and interact with the content on any video wall or operator desk. We designed this solution to be simple to set up and intuitive to use. Following the ‘Security by design’ principles, CTRL can even be applied in the most secure critical environments.
The Barco UniSee II LCD video wall perfectly shows all details with its superb image quality, and greatly enhances operator ergonomics – which makes a real difference in the control room. As a TAA compliant solution, Barco UniSee II guarantees the security of the video wall. The solution is designed for the long haul, using the highest quality components, and redundancy options to prevent any chance of failure.
The same goes for the TruePix LED wall: TAA compliant and extremely reliable. The mounting structure, of which we have a mechanical demo on ISE, ensures swift servicing and panel replacement with no risk of damaging the pixels.
The power of Barco’s control room portfolio has convinced many customers, entrusting even the most critical tasks to our solutions. EUROCONTROL, for example, uses multiple Barco products (video walls and operator workflow solutions) to monitor all flights to, from and over Europe. The same goes for Heathrow Airport, where Barco solutions optimize and manage every aspect of the passenger journey – with the possibility to upgrade this scalable system to include additional locations. At Amsterdam University Medical Centre (UMC), Barco technology both ensures the security and the comfort of patients.
