Eaton Adds Cybersecurity Program Addressing Critical Infrastructure

By

Power management company Eaton recently announced that it is continuing to expand its cybersecurity program and collaboration with global safety science organization UL, establishing measurable cybersecurity criteria for network-connected power management products and systems. The new UL cybersecurity certifications for Eaton’s intelligent uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and grid automation technologies will show the company’s commitment to meet stringent specifications and customer expectations for safe, secure power management, according to the announcement.

“Eaton’s proactive and consistent enterprise-wide approach to cybersecurity provides customers with confidence that our digital solutions meet rigorous testing standards to operate securely worldwide,” said Michael Regelski, SVP and CTO, Electrical Sector, Eaton. “We know that an increasingly connected world needs trusted environments, and having our products, processes and labs verified by an independent industry leader like UL gives our customers an important advantage.”

Now, Eaton reportedly added two more technologies to its portfolio of products certified by UL. They are:

  • Eaton’s Gigabit Network Card, a UPS connectivity device designed to meet the UL 2900-2-2 Standard and to protect data center UPS and power distribution units (PDUs) against cyberthreats
  • Eaton’s utility grid automation technology SMP IO-2230, which is now the first utility substation automation technology certified under UL 2900-2-2 and designed to help global customers monitor and control intelligent electronic devices on the electric grid and microgrid applications

These join Eaton’s earlier UL certifications including its PowerExpert Dashboard and its WaveLinx wireless connected lighting system.

Eaton also has two labs approved to participate in UL’s Data Acceptance Program for cybersecurity:

  • Eaton’s cybersecurity research and testing facility in Pittsburgh was the first lab approved to participate in UL’s program
  • Recently, Eaton’s innovation center in Pune, India was added to the program, and can also test global products to aspects of the UL 2900-01 and 2900-2-2 Standards

The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
