Endress+Hauser has obtained the StarAudit certification. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) offering of the measurement instrumentation specialist was given four-star certification by EuroCloud. Within the framework of the certification, all areas that are relevant for the collection of data in cloud-based applications were reviewed.
Endress+Hauser has given top priority to data security during the development of cloud-based applications. “In conversations with customers, the second question which is nearly always asked concerns our security standards and measures to ensure them,” says Thomas Schmidt, StarAudit Project Leader at Endress+Hauser, “which is why we decided to carry out a comprehensive audit through an independent body.”
The StarAudit certificate confirms that web-based services are based on specific security standards and have been correspondingly validated. This offers a traceable quality assessment of cloud services through a transparent and reliable certification process. The aim is to strengthen the trust of customers and users in cloud services. The certificate was officially handed over in Zurich in April.
With the web-application Analytics all field devices in a plant, including those from third parties, can be cataloged and analyzed. In addition, the application also enables the recognition of critical measuring points and indicates possibilities for standardization. Further information, for example suitable replacement products, is also shown.
EuroCloud is an independent non-profit organization for the promotion of cloud computing. It is committed to the development of a common digital European market and open dialog between all partners, in order to drive new developments.
