Emerson Selects Achilles Satellite Security Assurance Platform
Vancouver, B.C. — Nov. 21
Wurldtech Security Technologies, a provider of cyber risk and compliance management solutions for industrial automation industries, announced that Emerson’s power and water solution division — which develops plant-wide process control solutions for the power generation, water treatment and wastewater treatment industries — has selected the Achilles Satellite Security Assurance platform in hopes of enhancing internal robustness testing best practices for its Ovation control system.
By integrating Achilles into established product development processes, Wurldtech says Emerson and other global equipment manufacturers of IP-based systems can reduce business risk for their customers by identifying, isolating and re-mediating vulnerabilities in process automation and control systems before they are deployed.
”Security and robustness testing is an important element of our product development process and enables our world-class development team to continuously enhance the overall quality of our automation portfolio,” said Carl Staab, manager of network and systems security for Emerson’s power and water solutions division. “To ensure our global customer base receives the highest level of ongoing security assurance, we selected Achilles to validate system performance under real world conditions and improve the security and reliability of our customers’ operations.”
