ISA/IEC 62443 compliance doesn’t have to be complicated. Know how Privileged Access Management facilitates the compliance process.
The 62443 series of standards developed by the ISA (International Society of Automation) and adopted by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) provides a framework for mitigating vulnerabilities in Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) associated with Industry 4.0 and critical infrastructure.
To access and perform actions on industrial systems, privileged or administrative credentials are usually required, which allow users to modify numerous settings in the environment. Thus, if a malicious agent improperly obtains these credentials, it is possible to steal critical data or even cause irreversible damage to industrial systems.
The elements contained in the ISA 62443 standards bring a set of methods and techniques for protecting industrial systems, involving the implementation of security policies associated with IACS.
These policies provide for the proper management of user credentials – both own and third parties – as well as permissions and monitoring of remote access to these systems.
How do we help you comply with ISA/IEC 62443?
The session recording functionality of senhasegura allows you to securely record and store maintenance actions. In this way, it is possible to improve the retention of technical knowledge, thus ensuring greater independence for the suppliers of products associated with IACS.
In this way, it is possible to overcome the challenges of access management in critical industrial systems, and achieve compliance with ISA/IEC 62443 standards.
senhasegura allows you to establish a secure and simplified way to authorize and monitor all privileged users in IACS, based on the controls required by the ISA 62443 series of standards.
Some actions that the senhasegura solution can help your organization to comply with ISA/IEC 62443:
Define and enforce security policies associated with authorization in multiple Control and Industrial Automation Systems. senhasegura becomes the main user management point for these systems.
Allow granting or revoking privileges to users, ensuring implementation of least privilege policies.
Provide a way to perform remote sessions through privileged credentials, without the user knowing the credential password.
Monitor remote sessions and flag any violations of privileged credential access policies on systems.
senhasegura, in partnership with Baumier – authorized distributor in Brazil of communication products for industrial networks – allows the implementation of a complete solution for the adequate protection of Industry 4.0 and Critical Infrastructure systems.
senhasegura is a supporting member of the Global Cybersecurity Alliance (https://isaautomation.isa.org/cybersecurity-alliance/). The Initiatives include expanding the development and use of industry standards, creating education and certification programs , advocacy for cybersecurity awareness and sensible approaches with the world’s governments and regulators.
PAM Core – Management of the full cycle
of high privilege credentials
Centralized access management, for maximum protection and control of generic and high-privilege credentials, providing secure storage, segregation of access and full traceability of use.
When configuring access groups, you can define the administrator users who will be allowed to be given a physical access password and the group of users who can use the remote access provided by the solution to access a target device or system.
All cases can follow multi-level approval workflows and reasons provided by the requesting user.
Who is it recommended for?
senhasegura is a leading global solution in privileged access management with a mission to eliminate the abuse of privileges in organizations around the world.
The solution is recommended for companies in the following scenarios:
Companies with more than 10 users.
Companies that received points of attention in auditing.
Companies that need to reduce operating costs.
Companies that must comply with cybersecurity rules and regulations.
Companies that want to implement the best security practices.
Companies that have suffered a security incident.
In 2021, senhasegura was recognized as a Challenger in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report. In the same year, Gartner also named us among the top three PAM technologies in the world in its PAM Critical Capabilities report.
In addition, senhasegura was listed in Forrester’s Wave report for Privileged Identity Management 2018, which considered our access granularity among the best in the market. In addition, senhasegura was named a Leader by KuppingerCole in its Leadership Compass 2021 report.
"senhasegura is a great product that offers multiple solutions for daily use. It can be deployed and integrated very quickly, making it very simple to detect who, when and how connections to critical target systems, including IT / OT, are performed."
"senhasegura offers a complete and secure set of PAM capabilities for password management in our complex multisite environment, including our South American subsidiaries. The solution is also well suited for our Industry 4.0 factories associated with the pharmaceutical industry."
