Emerson's Smart Wireless Gateway now Achilles-certified
AUSTIN, Texas - Emerson Process Management has been awarded Achilles certification for its Smart Wireless Gateway. Based on rigorous testing by independent consultant Wurldtech Security Technologies, the certification gives customers added assurance that the robust security measures built into Emerson's Smart Wireless networks meet the demands of industrial automation applications.
The Achilles Certified Communications program provides an independently verified benchmark for assessing the network security and resilience of applications, devices and systems in critical industrial infrastructures.
"Security has been a top priority for our Smart Wireless technology right from the start," said Emerson security and IT-integration manager Jeff Potter. "Achieving Achilles certification validates our approach and will further enhance customer confidence in the security and reliability of our wireless networks."
The Smart Wireless Gateway is a key part of Emerson's self-organizing wireless field network technology. Based on the IEC 62591 standard, these networks use multiple strategies – including encryption, network keys, integrity codes and anti-jamming techniques -- to provide secure, reliable communications even in harsh industrial environments.
