November 21, 2014 - Secomea SiteManage is security certified by ProtectEM,  a German security organization. The solution consists of a control unit at the factory (SiteManager) in form of either hardware or software and a Web- or Windows based client (LinkManager) operated by technicians or end-users. These two components are tied together via a central M2M communication server (GateManager). Secomea approached the German security organization ProtectEM GmBH that works in close cooperation with the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. ProtectEM used a framework based on:

  • Auditing processes according to NIST SP800-115 & ISECOM OSSTMM
  • Concept auditing based on BSI (German federal office for information security), ISA 99, and IEC 62443
  • Component auditing where components were individually analyzed and stressed
  • System auditing where end-to-end security was thoroughly assessed

Based on findings and feedback during the auditing process Secomea developed a number of security optimizations, which were consolidated into the different solution components and verified. On November 11, ProtectEM could provide a comprehensive and final security audit report, and their official security certificate with the statement: “Successfully Passed”. About Secomea A/S: Secomea A/S is a privately owned company and one of the leading providers of remote access solutions for the automation and machine industry. Over the years, Secomea has built a strong line of Firewall/VPN and Remote Access to Industrial Equipment solutions with emphasis on making the solutions easy to install, setup and use – especially for non IT-literate people. This is implied in the company name; Secomea is an abbreviation of “Secure communication made easy”.
