TÜV SÜD, a leading global testing, inspection, and certification services organization, and Wurldtech Security Technologies, the leader in protecting mission-critical connected devices from cyber security threats, have entered into a partnership to provide product testing and IEC-62443 compliance certification for Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS). This certification program allows critical infrastructure manufacturers to assure their customers that its processes and products meet and exceed established cyber security best practice benchmarks.
Combined with the strength of TÜV SÜD and its Americas subsidiary, TÜV SÜD America, a global leader in product certification, Wurldtech’s renowned Achilles communication robustness testing and security best practices benchmarks will enable worldwide market penetration and expansion to new target customers for both companies.
"This partnership with TÜV SÜD will provide Wurldtech with a much broader reach to scale quickly and expand industry security testing and certification to the upcoming IEC 62443 standard," said Wurldtech CTO and founder, Nate Kube.
"IACS stakeholders are faced with a daunting task: protecting systems against cyber attacks. Combined, our two companies’ strengths form a potent program which IACS stakeholders can leverage to create and maintain systems and components with robust cyber security. The industry will benefit from our partnership," said Steve Dykstra, Vice President, Testing, TÜV SÜD America.
Joint compliance certification and testing will be available in Q1 2014.
