PLANET Technology, a leading global provider of IP-based networking technology, continues to improve the security of industrial networking products. Through the auditing by TUV NORD, a third-party international verification agency, PLANET has received the IEC 62443-4-1 Security for industrial automation and control systems (IACS) – Part 4-1: Secure product development lifecycle requirements, which proves the implementation of information security design from the beginning of industrial network product development to the complete product life cycle, thus improving the information security protection of operational technology network equipment.
The IEC 62443 is an international network security standard widely used in IACS. It is implemented by the International Society of Automation (ISA) and the IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE). The series of information security standards consists of policies, organizations, processes, systems and components. Among them is the secure product development lifecycle set by IEC 62443-4-1 which begins with product safety requirements, design, development, testing to import. PLANET strictly follows the Secure Product Development System to ensure customers and users are well protected from cyber-attacks.
With the increasing demand for applications with IoT and Industrial IoT, information security will also need to be extended to operational technology products besides just information technology. From PLANET obtaining ISO 27001 for information security management systems to IEC 62443-4-1 while integrating IT and OT information security, PLANET has been committed to providing the highest quality, safety and reliability in networking products and solutions. This ensures strong information security to protect the customers and promotes sustainable enterprise development.
