As a company, we see it as an existential challenge to establish best practices for cyber security throughout our industry and with the team we have in place, Access Networks is ideally positioned to make this happen.

—Hagai Feiner, founder and CEO, Access Networks

Access Networks, the provider of enterprise-grade network solutions for residential integration, has appointed Roy Beiser as director of IT. Beiser has dedicated more than 20 years to network and information security at Intel Corp.

Beiser plans to implement sophisticated IT processes on behalf of Access Networks while establishing the highest IT and cyber security standards for the company’s base of integration professionals and their clients.

Beiser is GSEC (GIAC Security Essentials Certification) certified and Cisco CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) certified, qualifications that are sought after globally at the highest levels of government, military and industry to develop and implement effective information security programs, driven by reducing enterprise risk and securing critical assets against likely threats.

A top priority out of the gate for Beiser will be to create a cyber security strategy for both integrators and their clients. This will be achieved on several levels such as isolating IoT devices from sensitive data and empowering the homeowner to be an effective gatekeeper in terms of remote access and connectivity. In addition to addressing security, Beiser will also streamline the configuration of network devices, optimizing internal processes and increasing day-to-day efficiencies at Access Networks. These advances will improve overall experience for both integrators and their clients.

“By bringing Roy onboard at Access Networks, we have augmented our engineering power as an organization,” stated Hagai Feiner, Access Networks founder and CEO. “As a company, we see it as an existential challenge to establish best practices for cyber security throughout our industry and with the team we have in place, Access Networks is ideally positioned to make this happen.”

Access Networks plans to offer cyber security training for integrators, publish guidelines and offer webinars in order to establish industry standards and raise the bar for cyber security throughout the CEDIA community and the industry as a whole.

“Our objective is to protect our clients by creating a comprehensive cyber security model that sets an industry-wide standard,” Beiser stated. “Access Networks will be offering next generation, highly sophisticated solutions including significant network security enhancements that will raise the bar for all premium residential networks.”

Access Networks is in current development of these practices and standards with a beta rollout scheduled for Q3 this year.
