Extron Product Security

Safeguarding the Integrity of Extron Products on the Network

Information Update About Spectre, Meltdown, and Extron Products (Updated January 9, 2018)

Recent product security research findings have identified two security issues known as Meltdown and Spectre. These issues impact modern device processors and affect nearly all traditional computing devices and operating systems.

The Spectre and Meltdown issues are not Extron product vulnerabilities. There are no known exploits that impact Extron products or customers.

Extron recommends checking with your organization about the availability of updates for computers, servers, and mobile devices as most manufacturers have already released mitigations. Always download Extron software, firmware, and drivers from trusted sources such as Extron.com.

Why is Product Security Important?

With networked AV systems, security has become as important of a consideration as performance and reliability. While networked devices may be placed in a secure room or locked cabinet, they may still be vulnerable due to a weakness in the product's design, implementation, operation, or management. When exploited, these vulnerabilities can adversely impact a company's security policy once the device is deployed on a network.

Extron helps organizations tackle these security challenges beginning with our Pro Series control processors – the central component of any AV control system. Our high-performance, secure control processors enhance control system capabilities and complete a control ecosystem that is secure by design. This dedication to security is carried throughout the Extron family of products.

Our Approach to Security

Extrons Approach to Product Security
Extron product security response process

For the protection of our customers, Extron does not disclose, discuss, or confirm security issues until a full investigation has occurred and any necessary patches or releases are available.

We perform regular performance and compliance reviews for each product we manufacture. While different types of products may have different security goals, we provide the documentation and support our customers need to maintain the highest security standards and integrity.

Customers rely on secure products and solutions, and it is our goal to ensure that Extron products meet this expectation.
