The certification confirms that Rockwell Automation product-development processes adhere to the security requirements in the IEC 62443-4-1 standard. Rockwell Automation is now using the certified SDL at all global development locations to support the development of all hardware and software products.
“Our certified SDL processes will help enhance security and support companies that are using a defence-in-depth approach,” said Shoshana Wodzisz, cybersecurity manager, Rockwell Automation. “And because our SDL is used at every Rockwell Automation development location, our customers can be confident that every product we put out is developed to an internationally recognised security standard.”
TÜV Rheinland performed the independent certification of the Rockwell Automation SDL.
The Rockwell Automation SDL is structured to help develop more secure products for a Connected Enterprise. Processes within the SDL include ongoing security competency on standards, technologies and tools, collaboration with partners to develop more robust, secure products, and comprehensive testing to verify that products meet established security requirements and conformance to relevant globally-recognised standards.
