Mu Launches Partner Program

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Mu Security, a pioneer in the security analyzer market, today announced new Mu Security Industrial Control (MUSIC) certification programs. MUSIC certification enables critical infrastructure and process control-focused organizations to verify a diverse range of network equipment and application protocols to meet industry-defined best practices for security, robustness and resiliency testing. Certification benchmarking ensures that plant and product safety is not compromised by hidden implementation flaws in industrial control systems. Starting today, Mu is offering MUSIC Foundation- and Advanced-level certifications based upon the specified protocol coverage of the product under review. Both certification levels are validated by Mu Security or select authorized partners and will be publicly demonstrated and presented August 13-16 at the ACS - Cyber Security Conference in Knoxville, TN .

Using the Mu-4000 and MUSIC's Foundation-level certification testing, Honeywell ExperionR Process Knowledge System (PKS) C300 Process Controller has achieved certification for benchmarking the safety and robustness quality in implementations of Layer 2 through 4 network protocols.

"Security is a not a specific product, it's an ongoing process," said Kevin Staggs, Engineering Fellow and Global Security Architect at Honeywell Process Solutions. "Mu Security is helping the industry by creating a repeatable and metrics-based process that maps to current standard tracks including the ISA SP99 draft standard."
