Control Associates partnered with a major nutritional products manufacturer to implement a turnkey cybersecurity program for operational technologies that included: two DeltaV™ Distributed Control Systems (DCS) running on Microsoft Hyper-V and a Syncade Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

The Scope of the Program Included Collaborating With the Customer to Design, Implement, Document & Test Solutions in Five Key Areas:

1. Upgrades 

Control Associates upgraded two DeltaV systems—both the operating systems and applications—to get to the most current supported state. Each new DeltaV release is the most secure release, as we continually make advancements in security features and add layered software and hardware security solutions.

2. Network Segmentation 

Our experts collaborated with corporate IT to design and implement security zones, including detailed network segmentation aligned with the customer’s guidelines. In addition, we designed and requested switch configuration and firewall configuration through the customer’s IT Service Management System.

3. Access Control  

Our team implemented the customer’s standard Privileged Access Management (PAM), role-based account access, account controls, and password policies.

4. Backup & Recovery  

Our team implemented and tested standard backup and recovery solutions for DeltaV and Syncade, including virtual machine and file level backups.

5. Anti-Virus/Patch Updates  

Control Associates collaborated with corporate IT to implement end point protection utilizing McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™), automated patch management, and whitelisting.
