The certification, issued by industry consortium ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI), independently certifies Emerson’s DeltaV distributed control and safety systems are robust against network and system attacks.

“The world’s leading industrial manufacturers are leveraging transformative digital technologies and methods to improve production reliability, safety and overall performance while focusing intensely on cybersecurity,” said Peter Zornio, chief technology officer for Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “We are committed to helping our customers securely optimize their operations across the globe in an environment of increasing cyber threats.”

The ISA cybersecurity certification helps the industry navigate the ever-changing digital landscape and recognize products with enhanced cybersecurity measures. ISASecure SSA Level 1 certification covers critical standards of ANSI/ISA 62443 (IEC 62443).

“ISA developed the ISASecure cybersecurity certification to give asset owners confidence in their industrial control systems and to promote supplier best practices that protect automation systems and the operations they control,” said Andre Ristaino, managing director of ISCI. “Emerson is taking a leading role that we hope other vendors will follow in further protecting personnel and processes alike from today’s increasing security threats.”
