The successful audit by TÜV Rheinland confirms the standard-compliant implementation of the processes for secure product development of industrial automation technology according to IEC 62443-4-1.

IEC 62443-4-1 certification underscores the company's ability to implement modern vulnerability management, perform comprehensive security testing and assist in identifying and addressing security risks." Orientation to the industry standard makes it easier for B&R customers to conduct time-consuming in-house analyses and supplier audits related to the cyber security of OT systems.
