The certification by third party TÜV Rheinland confirms that the controller meets the global standard’s robust cybersecurity requirements. The controller achieved compliance with the addition of new security features to its firmware.

Security features within the ControlLogix 5580 controller include:

• User identification and authentication
• Continuous monitoring and logging
• Integrity checks to help ensure the product has not been altered.

The certified controller builds on the 2018 certification of the Rockwell Automation Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) to the IEC 62443-4-1 standard. Rockwell Automation uses the SDL at all its global development locations to develop secure hardware and software products for connected operations.
