Why Open Secure Automation (OSA)?
Automation users have been calling for open automation since at least 1997, when they formed the OpenGroup, which advances “open, vendor-neutral technology standards and certifications to achieve business objectives.” Among the group’s more than 600 members are the world’s most sophisticated oil and gas companies, energy producers, and public utilities.
The OpenGroup endorsed the concept of “security by design” around 2015, with the formation of its Open Process Automation Forum, which has issued specifications for the control system needed for the next generation of industrial connectivity.
Today, only Bedrock Automation is delivering an industrial control system with the characteristics that the Open Process Automation Forum believes the market needs.
