What Does It Mean to Be Achilles Certified?

Cyber security is a critical component of the Industrial Internet. While there are many benefits to connecting machines, with this connectivity comes increased risk that processes and data can be attacked or accessed by unauthorized users.

The numbers around cyber security are staggering. Cyber security incidents are on the rise, increasing nearly 40% between 2014 and 2015. Estimates put the cost of cyber attacks at upwards of $1 billion. 

To help assess the relative security of their Industrial Internet-enabled control systems, GE and other manufacturers work with Wurldtech. Wurldtech offers two levels of Achilles Communications Certifications that indicate industrial devices meet industry security standards. 

In this video experts from Wurldtech explain how they measure system security and discuss the Achilles Level 2 certification of the PACSystems RX3i controller.
