SELLERSVILLE, PA -- exida, the global leader in functional safety and industrial cybersecurity certification, has certified Cisco System’s CSDL (Cisco Secure Development Lifecycle) engineering process for cybersecurity, ensuring it meets the requirements for IEC 62443.  exida is the global leader in cybersecurity certification and is a recognized ISO 17025 test lab / ISO 17065 accredited Certification Body (CB).

The Cisco Secure Development Lifecycle (CSDL) was designed to ensure that Cisco produces secure and resilient products by identifying and implementing specific processes or tools to enable engineers to detect, fix, mitigate and prevent design and code weaknesses that could become exploitable. 

“Cisco has long been a thought leader in the area of cybersecurity.  They have been following a security development lifecycle many years before the IEC 62443-4-1 standard came out and were active contributors to the development of this standard.  This certification shows that they have incorporated security throughout their development process to develop products that are secure by design” says Mike Medoff, exida Directory of Cybersecurity Certification.
