PITTSBURGH — During its Cybersecurity Perspectives forum, Eaton announced its product development processes are now certified by both the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and UL. The certifications underscore Eaton’s leadership in providing customers with confidence that its connected solutions comply with proven industry guidelines.

Analysts at Grandview Research estimate that nearly $950 billion will be spent on the deployment of IIoT solutions globally by 2025. As organizations expand their digital footprint, it becomes imperative to protect the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of their systems. Eaton’s approach to cybersecurity advances trusted environments in a hyperconnected world, by integrating cybersecurity at the foundation of innovation for its product development and design processes.

“At Eaton, we consider cybersecurity to be a foundational building block that is critical to the design, deployment, and operation of digital solutions in the industrial world,” said Michael Regelski, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Electrical Sector at Eaton. “Our industry-first IEC and UL endorsements mean that our customers can be confident that products and solutions they buy from us meet the same level of standards recommended by two key standard organizations across the globe.”

Both IEC 62443-4-1 and UL 2900-1 validated that Eaton processes used to develop products and solutions are in compliance with industry standards.
