(MENAFN Press) Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system has obtained the ISASecure* Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification.



Cyber crime and cyber warfare are on the rise worldwide, and are growing ever more sophisticated. Recent prominent cases of industrial sabotage and espionage have escalated these concerns. Companies in the oil, petrochemical, power, and other industries are increasingly vigilant about such intrusions, and are being careful to check a product's cyber security features before purchasing it. Yokogawa has obtained the ISASecure EDSA certification for the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system to assure customers of its high reliability



Nobuaki Konishi, vice president of the Systems Business Division in Yokogawa's Industrial Automation Platform Business Headquarters, had the following to say about this development: "Yokogawa is continually striving to provide its customers optimum security solutions for their control systems by such means as deveoping highly secure systems and instruments and providing operational support services." He went on to say, "Yokogawa aims to strengthen its relationships with customers by demonstrating the reliability of its security solutions.




* 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 achieves 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. The ISASecure EDSA certification has three elements: communication robustness testing (CRT), functional security assessment (FSA), and software development security assessment (SDSA), and is based on the IEC 62443-4 standard.
