Yokagawa’s ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented system has obtained the ISASecure® Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification.
The ISASecure program has been developed by the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) with the goal of accelerating the industry wide improvement of cyber security for industrial automation and control systems (IACS). It aims to achieve this goal by offering a common industry recognized set of device and process requirements that drive device security, simplifying procurement for asset owners and device assurance for equipment vendors.
Nobuaki Konishi, vice president of the Systems Business Division in Yokogawa’s Industrial Automation Platform Business Headquarters, commented: ‘Yokogawa is continually striving to provide its customers with optimum security solutions for their control systems by developing highly secure systems and instruments and providing operational support services.
‘Yokogawa aims to strengthen its relationships with customers by demonstrating the reliability of its security solutions.’
