Technology and engineering firm Emerson recently declared it setting up a new cybersecurity lab in Pune. The lab is aiming to assist manufacturers in the adoption of digital transformational strategies, while guarding the integrity of their plant operations, networks, systems and data. The facility builds on existing capabilities and further strengthens Emerson’s technology portfolio to support the highest levels of product security across the development life-cycle.
This new lab will concentrate entirely on defining security requirements, designing threat models and security walkthroughs, upholding security practices and simulating cyber-attacks in industrial environments to spot and re-address potential vulnerabilities.
“Cybersecurity is frequently cited by customers as a top consideration for Industrial Internet of Things adoption,” said Lal Karsanbhai, executive president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “Emerson’s investment in a broad portfolio of technologies and services is helping global leaders accelerate their digital transformation with confidence,” he added.
The facility is located at Emerson’s Innovation Center in Pune which houses 900 employees and works on future innovations and coordinating training for development engineers. Karsanbhai said. “This new center further extends our leadership in industrial transformation and enhances our ability to collaborate with customers on the critical element of cybersecurity as they adopt the latest digital technologies to optimize performance.”
