Milwaukee, Wisconsion –The Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5580 controller from Rockwell Automation is the world’s first programmable automation controller to be certified compliant with the IEC 62443-4-2 security standard.

Certification from TÜV Rheinland confirms that the controller meets the global standard’s robust cybersecurity requirements. The controller achieved compliance with the addition of new security features to its firmware.

Security features within the ControlLogix 5580 controller include:

  • User identification, authentication
  • Continuous monitoring, logging
  • Integrity checks to ensure the unit has not been altered

The certified controller builds on the 2018 certification of the Rockwell Automation Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) to the IEC 62443-4-1 standard. Rockwell Automation uses the SDL at all its global development locations to develop secure hardware and software products for connected operations.
