Security

Integrated tools for security

The DeltaV SIS™ process safety system provides the tools to ensure that your system is secure internally and externally. DeltaV SIS has completely independent logic solvers and safety networks. All external non-safety communications with the DeltaV SIS must pass through filtering and verification functions and the firewall within the DeltaV SIS system.

Both the operator station and engineering tools contain extensive configurable levels of access control. The security system provides function locks, which allow the system administrator to control the privileges granted to individual users. Items may be checked out for editing only by approved users.

To prevent physical intrusion on the control network, you can configure workstations to lock down USB ports from unauthorized users with the system’s built–in user roles. Hardened workstations help protect against intrusions by disabling unused features that might provide access to unauthorized users.
