Emerson Process Management joined with Intel Security to enhance and strengthen its integrated cyber security solution to secure the DeltaV distributed control system (DCS).

This increased layer of cyber protection will help safeguard critical assets and data.

This relationship is a move to further protect infrastructure throughout the plant lifecycle and addresses the market demand for consistent, proven industrial cyber security.

DeltaV DCS incorporated built-for-purpose control system firewalls and network switches that provide easy-to-configure security and protection features to help system networks remain available, reliable, and more secure.

“Through our global network of experts, we follow ‘defense in depth’ layered security practices designed to both comply with emerging cyber security standards and combat new, emerging, and complex threats,” said Sean Sims, vice president of Emerson’s Lifecycle Services.

The new solutions provide efficient compliance measures and instant intelligence for changing threat environments, along with the power of real-time visibility and centralized management through a single platform.

Emerson is certifying supported releases of the DeltaV DCS and AMS Suite asset management to offer Intel Security’s Anti-Virus, Network Monitoring, and Application Whitelisting solutions. Additionally, Emerson will offer Intel Security’s Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) solution to perform monitoring and the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator for streamlined and centralized security management.
