Three YORK® Chiller Solutions Earn ISASecure® Certifications for Embedded Cybersecurity

  March 12, 2024

MILWAUKEE, March 12, 2024 – Johnson Controls, the global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, today announced that three new chiller solutions have received ISASecure® Component Security Assurance (CSA) certification for cybersecurity in chiller automation. Conducted by exida, the world’s leading product certification and knowledge company, the certification meets International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 62443 standards for cybersecurity within industrial automation and control systems. It now applies to the following YORK® chiller solutions with the upgrade to the IntelliView display:

  • YVAA Air-Cooled, Variable-Speed Drive Screw Chiller (Style A and Style B)
  • YVFA Free Cooling Variable Screw Drive Air-Cooled Chiller

These products join the YORK YK and YZ Centrifugal Chillers, which earned the world’s first ISASecure CSA certification in 2021, further cementing Johnson Controls commitment to bringing cyber-resilient solutions to the smart buildings market.

“Smart connected chillers can transform industrial operations through data-driven insights and predictive analytics. But these benefits can be quickly negated if critical systems are vulnerable to cyber threats,” said Joe Villani, DSc, director of software, hardware and controls engineering, Johnson Controls. “Through the guidance of the International Society of Automation, we have ensured every component of these chillers is protected by global cybersecurity standards to provide our customers with the utmost peace of mind.”

Achieving ISASecure certification encompasses the product development process, embedded security capabilities and the product’s inherient vulnerability to cyber threats. Only products that surpass all qualifications are granted ISASecure certification. By integrating ISASecure products into industrial applications, operators are able to reliably achieve safety compliance while spending less time and fewer resources updating equipment and software.

“Johnson Controls continues to be a leader in the industry when it comes to developing secure products,” said Mike Medoff, director of cybersecurity certification, exida. “This certification helps ensure that the products are secure by design which is an important part of overall building security.”
