Security assurance recognition!

Honeywell is the first industry vendor to earn the ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification, by the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI), for an industrial control systems product. The award recognizes Honeywell’s commitment to stringent cyber security standards and the security of Honeywell’s control systems products. 

The formal announcement was made during the Honeywell HUG event this summer. Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) is the first process industry vendor to be certified. The award recognizes the integrity of both the embedded Safety Manager device and its production lifecycle, and follows rigorous testing against communication robustness, functional security and software development security. 

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. 

The ISASecure™ EDSA certification provides Honeywell’s customers–and their procurement teams–the extra reassurance that Safety Manager can deliver on its promises. 

“Honeywell continues to demonstrate leadership for ensuring cyber security of industrial automation and control systems,” commented Andre Ristaino, ISCI managing director. “Being the first supplier to submit products for the ISASecure EDSA certification was courageous and demonstrates Honeywell’s commitment to security.”
