Simple and Secure Networking for Smart Buildings
Peer-to-peer connectivity and micro-segmentation for Building Automation Control Networks (BACnet)
What our Smart Building Customers Experience
Connecting and Protecting Building Automation Control Networks (BACnet)The complexity and ineffectiveness of traditional IT solutions has left building automation teams feeling ill-equipped and exposed. The time, expertise, and budget required to connect and protect building control systems in every building across separate networks is impractical, yet still doesn’t prevent hacker reconnaissance and lateral attacks.
Complex network dependencies prevent simple LAN/WAN connectivity
Disruption caused by infrastructure and maintenance changes
Broadcast storms making systems unavailable
Flat L2 networks create a large cyber-attack surface
Inability to protect against horizontal L2-L4 network attacks
Lack of machine-to-machine encryption exposes building controls
People and Process
Limited staff, security, and network expertise
Lack of quick audit capability across systems
Controlling network and security costs
Fast, Simple, and Secure Smart Building NetworksOur customers have eliminated the complexity, attack vectors, and costs associated with traditional IT solutions by adopting a purpose-built approach for building automation controls that’s simpler and more secure. With IDN, you can deploy secure and micro-segmented networks in minutes, rather than days or weeks compared to traditional IT solutions. And even better, the cost is a fraction of those alternatives. Now you can easily connect and integrate building controls and IT systems across the LAN and WAN.
Business Impacts of Traditional IT Solutions vs Tempered NetworksOur customer was able to securely connect and segment 500 distributed buildings and thousands of building control systems across their large campus network. They were able to complete the project on time and significantly under budget, while providing a highly available and more secure overlay network model.
"Tempered Networks gave us a simple way to achieve end-to-end private networking for our Building Automation network that’s resilient, scalable, and secure. In less than 20 minutes, we were able to deploy our first cloaked overlay network without having to modify systems or involve IT"

Zero Trust Policy Orchestration and Micro-Segmentation in Minutes
Tempered Networks’ scalable orchestration engine was designed to be extremely easy to use with no advanced technical training and requires little to no change to existing infrastructure. Unlike the many complex, fragile, and disruptive steps associated with traditional IT solutions, our customers eliminate complexity, cost, and attack vectors through point-and-click policy orchestration.
First, our overlay network transparently creates cryptographic machine identities for every device to eliminate spoofing.
Second, every protected devices' network connections are automatically authenticated and authorized between trusted devices before data transport and exchange. Our unique network-level authentication creates verifiable trust segments that can't be discovered or exploited.
Third, all connections are transparently encrypted and encapsulated enabling non-disruptive and secure traversal across any type of network - public or private. Every device can now be quickly connected and protected across any LAN or WAN, segmented across any network and made invisible to hackers.
Point-and-Click Simple ManagementWith one-click, our customers easily create peer-to-peer overlay networks that can’t be spoofed.
