Wurldtech’s Achilles Satellite network robustness testing platform Level 2 Build 3.3.16344 received formal recognition the ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) Certification program.

The Achilles Satellite is the first network test tool recognized for use by ISASecure accredited labs to perform the Communication Robustness Testing (CRT) portion of embedded device security certifications. ISASecure is a program within the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI).

The ISASecure EDSA Certification consists of three elements: A device Functional Security Assessment (FSA), a device Communication Robustness Test (CRT), and an organizational Software Development Security Assessment (SDSA).

ISCI’s technical team evaluated ISASecure test suites in the Achilles Satellite test platform against published ISASecure EDSA Communication Robustness Test (CRT) specifications in accordance with ISO/IEC Guide 65 conformance scheme procedures and determined the tool’s test capabilities satisfied testing requirements necessary to gain formal recognition.

“The Achilles test suites continue to play an important role in improving the network resiliency and robustness of global critical infrastructures,” said Dr. Nate Kube, Wurldtech chief technology officer. “Our collaboration with ISCI raises the bar once again, providing industrial stakeholders with additional criteria for verifying and validating resilient industrial control systems,” he said.
