Moxa has announced that the company has achieved the first IEC 62443-4-2 Security Level 2 (SL2) certification for its EDR-G9010 and TN-4900 series industrial secure routers.

“The Moxa industrial router team successfully achieved IEC 62443-4-2 Security Level 2 certification for their TN-4900 and EDR-G9010 series industrial secure routers, the first available in the market,” said Pascal Le-Ray, general manager of Bureau Veritas (BV) CPS Technology Products Taiwan. Bureau Veritas (BV) is the global certification body that issued the IEC 62443 certification.

With this recognition, Moxa once again cements its position as a global leader in industrial networking with offerings that combine networking and OT cybersecurity with layered defense-in-depth protection. These include security-hardened devices based on the IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standards, OT network segmentation with threat prevention, and tailored OT deep packet inspection (DPI) realizing industrial intrusion prevention system (IPS).

“We uphold network integrity and stay at the forefront of network security by consistently putting our products through validation processes, closely following the most updated security protocols to guarantee reliable industrial-grade offerings,” said Samuel Chiu, chairman of Moxa’s Cybersecurity Steering Committee.

The EDR-G9010 series and TN-4900 series employ the Moxa Router Operating System (MX-ROS), a software platform for industrial security routers and firewalls. The latest version, MX-ROS 3.0, provides robust security protection and user-friendly operational procedures thanks to simplified web and CLI interfaces. It also offers a wealth of cross-industry Operational Technology (OT) network management features.

With security-hardened functions based on the IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standard, the EDR-G9010 and TN-4900 series are the premier offerings in the railway and automation industries, facilitating data connectivity and offering advanced security features, such as an intrusion prevention system (IPS), intrusion detection system (IDS), and deep packet inspection (DPI), to ensure the highest level of industrial network security. As the first line of defense, these secure routers ensure stable operations, preventing threats from propagating throughout the network.
