This ensures compliance and enabling of the Reference Architecture Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) with reference to IEC/PAS 62443-3 for the components GateManager, SiteManager, LinkManager, LinkManager Mobile. The certification supplements Secomea’s general security certification obtained in 2014.

ProtectEM generally specializes in consultancy, concept development and security auditing within industrial and process automation and a range of other industries relying on critical processes.
