HMS Networks becomes IEC 62443-4-1-certified for secure product development lifecycle

Security through a certified development process

IEC62443-4-1 is part of the IEC 62443-4:2018(E) standard which specifies the process requirements for secure development of products used in industrial automation and control systems. Receiving the IEC62443-4-1 certificate is yet another step on HMS’s cybersecurity journey. The certificate confirms that HMS has a process in place for secure product design, technology to handle vulnerability disclosures, and the ability to transparently work with customers to help them manage security risks.

“The automation industry needs partners that can provide technology and services which protect the users’ most valuable assets,” says Timo Vant Hoff, CPO of HMS. “When companies work with HMS, they can rest assured that we always have security in mind, and that security is continually addressed in our daily work” The new certification was independently performed by TÜV Rheinland, and the IEC62443-4-1 certificate is adding to an expanding list of acknowledgments for HMS’ success in helping customers strengthen their cybersecurity within the area of industrial automation and control systems.
