Cyber Security: Honeywell Safety Manager Certified ISASecure

Aug. 23, 2011
The Safety Manager product from Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has been awarded ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification.

The Safety Manager product from Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has been awarded ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification by exida, the organization that conducted the stringent assessment, making it the first process automation vendor in the industry to get this certification.

The EDSA certification recognizes the integrity of both the embedded Safety Manager device and its development lifecycle, and follows rigorous testing against communication robustness, functional security and software development security, according to Bill Goble, principal partner of exida. "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," Goble said.

Safety Manager delivers safety assurance for operators 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. Erik de Groot, HPS marketing manager for Safety Management Systems, said, "We’re proud to be the first to achieve EDSA certification. Cyber security is one of our strategic cornerstones and it’s an integral part of our product development process. ISASecure EDSA certification gives our customers – and their procurement teams – that extra reassurance that Safety Manager can deliver on its promises."
