Process Controller Achieves Achilles Level 1 Cyber-Security Certification
Wurldtech Security Technologies announces that Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) C300 Process Controller has been awarded the Achilles Level 1 Cyber-Security Certification from Wurldtech Labs.
The Achilles Certified designation provides equipment manufacturers such as Honeywell with an independently verified and internationally recognized endorsement to demonstrate the resiliency of their Ethernet-enabled control systems to customers. The Achilles Certification program is also an important worldwide evaluation standard for many of the world’s end-users of SCADA and process control systems, with the brand now trusted and recognized as a selection criteria in many internal vendor procurement documents.
Developed in 2007, the Achilles Certification Program provides a benchmark for the development and deployment of secure industrial Ethernet devices by testing control process resilience and robustness under real-world conditions and validating that operational integrity is not jeopardized. The Achilles Certification testing methodology employed by Wurldtech Labs is the result of more than two years of research, industry cooperation and end-user feedback.
