Certified for Meeting the Highest Cyber Security Standards

Measurement instruments and components from Endress+Hauser make certain that numerous process engineering systems around the world operate securely and reliably. For industrial plants and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments, cybersecurity is becoming a growing focus. With networking and connectivity becoming increasingly prevalent, it’s imperative that companies protect their production systems and automation technology from unauthorized access.

To optimally protect its customers’ production systems, Endress+Hauser lays the foundation for secure operation as early as the planning and development phases of its products and services. In March, TÜV Rheinland, one of the world’s leading testing service providers, issued a certification in line with the IEC 62443-4-1 norm confirming that this product development process, as well as the product life cycle, meets the highest international standards.

Stringent requirements for automation technology 

By aligning the processes with IEC 62443-4-1, among other things Endress+Hauser ensures that products are developed from the beginning with all security requirements in mind and that the components it delivers pose no risks. Added to that are other measures such as code analyses and reviews, penetration tests and the installation of security updates. A total of eight different areas define what a secure product development process should look like:

  • Security management
  • Security requirements specification
  • Secure design guidelines 
  • Secure implementation guidelines
  • Verification and validation of security properties 
  • Vulnerabilities management
  • Creation and publication of security updates 
  • Security product documentation 

Strong capacity for innovation

“With IEC 62443-4-1, a proven certification standard in industrial automation, we ensure that all employees involved in these internal processes are working at the same level of security. That allows us to lay the cornerstone to be able to offer high-quality measurement, automation and IIoT products for connected production environments, now and in the future,” adds Mirko Brcic, Product Security Officer at Endress+Hauser
