Wurldtech Achilles Test Software Now Available for Development Engineers of Mission-Critical Embedded Devices

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Wurldtech Security Technologies, leaders in protecting mission-critical connected devices from persistent and dynamic cyber security threats, today announced the release of its Achilles Test Software, the software version of its Achilles Test Platform, extending its Achilles Test family of cyber security testing products to development teams of mission critical embedded devices.


Significant SCADA cyber attacks are plaguing the industry. Industrial Control Systems have evolved into complex, open, inter-connected networks, creating significant challenges for developers and manufacturers of mission-critical devices that are at the core of nuclear power plants, oil refineries, smart grids and medical applications.

"The Achilles Test Software is the next step in elevating industry standards to protect mission-critical connected devices from persistent cyber security threats," said Wurldtech CTO and co-founder, Nate Kube. "Our goal is to provide a complete cyber security solution supporting the entire product lifecycle, from development to commissioning, implementation and operation of critical infrastructure, ensuring the delivery of secure products, increased ROI and protection of brand equity for both the device manufacturer and their customers." Achilles Test Software delivers the tools that development teams require to test critical software early in the development cycle, before they enter the QA lab. It provides the means to proactively expose and correct vulnerabilities and validate system resiliency in a real-time environment, before the products are released and deployed in high-availability process control networks.

The Achilles Product Portfolio - Analyze, Discover, Mitigate and Certify Wurldtech provides a total set of analysis, software, hardware and certification products that provide stakeholders with a set of tools to protect and mitigate against Zero-Day threats, malware and cyber attacks.

Achilles Test Software- Previously available only as a comprehensive appliance - Achilles Test Platform, Achilles Test Software puts Achilles testing in the hands of development and quality assurance (QA) teams, enabling a corporate and strategic focus to cyber testing by allowing for candidate software and hardware testing earlier in the development cycle.

Achilles Test Platform- Hardware platform designed as a universal test bench to allow equipment manufacturers of all sizes to conduct comprehensive security and robustness testing throughout the product development lifecycle. Engineers can now utilize Achilles Test Software to test for device vulnerabilities at the earliest stage of development, using Achilles Test Platform for final verification testing.

Achilles Communication Certification- Verifies network robustness of industrial control devices by subjecting the device to a standardized set of network tests. Certification is provided by Wurldtech engineering teams upon inspection of testing data.

Achilles Practices Certification- Valued-added program tailored to the needs of system owners and operators, verifies the device manufacturers security practices and procedures across the product's lifecycle.
