Rockwell Automation debuts industrial control products at Hannover Messe 2019

April 3, 2019 – Rockwell Automation has debuted two industrial control products with built-in security at Hannover Messe 2019.
The Allen-Bradley ControlLogix EtherNet/IP communication module is, the company says, among the first industrial devices to use the CIP Security protocol from ODVA. The protocol helps make sure only authorized devices are connected in industrial operations.
It also helps prevent tampering or interference with communications between those devices. CIP Security is the first industrial automation protocol to support transport layer security (TLS), the most proven security standard available.
Also, the newly enhanced Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5580 controller is the world’s first controller to be certified compliant with today’s most robust control system security standard, IEC 62443-4-2.
The standard defines the technical security requirements for industrial automation and control system components. This certification builds on the 2018 certification of the Rockwell Automation Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) to the IEC 62443-4-1 standard.
