The Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5580 controller from Rockwell Automation allow companies to defend their connected operations against security threats. The programmable automation controller has new enhancements to its firmware that allow it to be compliant with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 62443-4-2 security standard. Certification by third party TÜV Rheinland confirms that the controller meets the global standard’s robust cybersecurity requirements. 

Security features within the ControlLogix 5580 controller include user identification and authentication, continuous monitoring and logging, and integrity checks to help ensure the product 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.
