Invensys Operations Management’s Foxboro I/A Series distributed control system (DCS) operator workstations passed the Achilles Cyber Security Certification test.
Cyber security testing and certification company, Wurldtech Security Technologies, performed the testing.
Wurldtech performed the testing on the Foxboro I/A Series Model P92 Workstation for Windows hardware and I/A Series AW70 human machine interface (HMI) software for the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, including I/A Series FoxView, FoxAlert, Alarm Manager and System Manager applications.
“End-users continually ask us how to evaluate a vendor’s claims about product security,” said Tyler Williams, president of Wurldtech. “Here is a prime example of a vendor doing all the right things to ensure safe, secure and reliable industrial operations.”
“Our customers demand the utmost in secure process control systems,” said Ernie Rakaczky, Invensys Operations Management security program manager. “The testing conducted using the Achilles Test Suite covers the most common cyber security threats.”
