“We’re excited to partner with Telos to enhance our security and protect the privacy of our customers,” said Martin Renkis, vice president, OpenBlue Security and Innovation at Johnson Controls. “Integrating Telos Ghost into our OpenBlue Cloudvue Gateway will enable us to offer a strongly differentiated product in the market.”

The OpenBlue Cloudvue Gateway allows multiple cameras to connect to the OpenBlue Cloudvue cloud-based repository and video analytics platform, which supports a worldwide, cloud-based video network used for surveillance and physical security. By embedding Telos Ghost into the product, Johnson Controls is able to hide the camera source location and the destination information repositories in its network. In addition to the product integration, Johnson Controls and Telos have formed a partnership to jointly market and sell the combined solution to various markets including education, military bases, healthcare and other campus environments.
“This integration is a true testament to the many applications and tremendous value provided by Telos Ghost,” said John B. Wood, CEO and chairman, Telos. “Our partnership with Johnson Controls will serve as the perfect stepping stone into the IoT market, and I’m excited for the countless possibilities on our horizon.”
In January 2018, Telos launched the cloud-based Telos Ghost network to provide security and privacy through obfuscation and encryption. The platform operates under the philosophy that you can’t exploit what you can’t see, enabling organizations to work securely over the internet without giving away their identity or their presence.
