Honeywell announced that its Safety Manager solution has
been awarded ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification
by exida, the organization that conducted the assessment. Honeywell Process
Solutions (HPS) is the first process automation vendor in the industry to
receivet this certification.
Safety Manager delivers safety
assurance for operators who oversee industrial processes. The solution helps
lower the cost of safety and improves performance by reducing the risk of
incidents, maximizing production uptime, reducing the cost of compliance, and
providing productivity tools that help manage safety in industrial plants.
HPS was presented with the award at its annual Users Group
Americas conference by Bill Goble, principal partner of exida, who said, “Control system cyber security has learned from functional safety that the
design process is critical for a strong foundation. Honeywell’s Safety Manager
excelled in our evaluation and I’m impressed by the serious response Honeywell
has made to today’s cyber security threats.”
in 2007, the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) provides assurance for
the cyber security of industrial automation control systems, and its
certification specifications are established in collaboration with industry,
trade associations, consumers, academia, government, and regulatory agencies.
Honeywell is a founding member of the ISCI.
