Schneider Electric Launches Cybersecurity Protection Services

Nov. 1, 2016
New services automatically distribute patches and updates to enhance cyber maintenance and reduce system risk.

Schneider Electric introduces new cybersecurity protection services designed to help industrial customers manage and secure their connected plants. Cyber Update services automatically distribute Schneider Electric’s qualified operating system patches and endpoint protections, reducing the risk of applying improper patches and updates, according to the company. It also eliminates potentially unsecure sources of data from affecting plant and business operations.

The new services, which reportedly meet IEC62443 and other industry standards, automatically deliver third-party-tested operating system security patches and anti-virus endpoint protection updates via a fully secure, authenticated and encrypted Windows Software Update Server to a customers’ on-site server. The services enable customers to apply patches and updates across multiple sites on the same secure network, allowing them to manage multiple, disparate systems that are running various O/S software levels and versions, according to the company. Cyber Update services are currently available and supported through Schneider Electric’s cybersecurity consulting services.
