PHOENIX -- Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced that its ExperionÒ Process Knowledge System (PKS) C300 Process Controller has achieved the new Mu Security Industrial Control Certification (MUSIC). The MUSIC certification is designed specifically for IP-based controllers and is closely aligned with the emerging ISA-SP99 security standards. It enables organizations that rely on critical infrastructure or process control to ensure their network equipment and applications meet industry-defined benchmarks for safety, robustness, resiliency and conformance.

Mu Security’s utilized its Mu-4000 security analyzer to test the C300 controllers with about 60,000 communication variations in an attempt to crash the system.

“When IP-based process controllers are compromised, it can lead to safety issues, regulatory requirement violations and the loss of confidential information,” said Ajit Sancheti, Mu Security co-founder and CEO. “These systems require strong protection from outside threats to function properly and maintain productivity. None of the variations we used were able to impact the C300 controllers, which validates the effectiveness of Experion’s cyber security measures and illustrates Honeywell’s commitment to security and quality.”
