During its Cybersecurity Perspectives forum, power management company Eaton announced it is the first company to have its product development processes certified by both the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and global safety science organisation UL. The certifications underscore Eaton’s leadership in providing customers with confidence that its connected solutions comply with proven industry guidelines.
Analysts estimate that nearly $950B will be spent on the deployment of industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions globally by 2025. As organisations expand their digital footprint, it becomes imperative to protect the availability, integrity and confidentiality of their systems. Eaton’s approach to cybersecurity advances trusted environments in a hyperconnected world, by integrating cybersecurity at the foundation of innovation for its product development and design processes.
“At Eaton, we consider cybersecurity to be a foundational building block that is critical to the design, deployment and operation of digital solutions in the industrial world,” said Michael Regelski, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Electrical Sector at Eaton. “Our industry-first IEC and UL endorsements mean that our customers can be confident that products and solutions they buy from us meet the same level of standards recommended by two key standard organisations across the globe.”
Both IEC 62443-4-1 and UL 2900-1 validated that Eaton processes used to develop products and solutions are in compliance with industry standards.
Regelski kicks off Eaton’s Cybersecurity Perspectives virtual conference today with an on-demand keynote focused on the essential role of third-party accreditation and assessment. The conference also includes a virtual panel discussion on global standards with commentary from its experts as well as leaders from the ISAGCA, IEC and UL.
