Emerson Process Management integrates Achilles testing

June 25, 2009 — Wurldtech Security Technologies announced that Emerson Process Management has selected the Achilles Satellite platform for use in its product development life cycle that delivers security software to complement its world class automation systems.

Emerson adds Achilles to its established product development processes that continuously test for new software weaknesses and accelerate the identification, isolation and mitigation of vulnerabilities before they are deployed by end-user customers.

“Ethernet-enabled industrial networks and control systems are increasingly exposed to new cyber risks that can jeopardize process integrity and result in unnecessary downtime,” stated Bob Huba, Product Manager for Emerson. “Achilles has proven to be the most effective platform in the market at identifying and mitigating potential weaknesses and helps our development teams continuously improve product robustness and meet the cyber security expectations of our customers.”

As part of the agreement, Achilles testing will be integrated throughout Emerson’s product development lifecycle, as well as product upgrades and patches. As a result, Emerson’s end-user customers not only benefit from deploying resilient, high performance systems in the market, but also have confidence that their systems remain resistant to unexpected weaknesses, system downtime and cyber attacks on an on-going basis.

“Emerson is a global leader in the industrial automation industry with a track record of building innovative, high performance control systems that consistently meet the demands of operator customers,” said Tyler Williams, CEO and President of Wurldtech Security Technologies “This deal marks a significant validation of our business model and we are extremely pleased that Achilles will play a key role in helping their development teams to continuously improve the security posture of their products and accelerate the market introduction of new devices and features.”
