New UL cybersecurity certifications for Eaton’s intelligent uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and grid automation technologies demonstrate the company’s worldwide capabilities to meet stringent specifications and customer expectations for safe, secure power management.

“Eaton’s proactive and consistent enterprise-wide approach to cybersecurity provides customers with confidence that our digital solutions meet rigorous testing standards to operate securely worldwide,” said Michael Regelski, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Electrical Sector at Eaton. “We know that an increasingly connected world needs trusted environments, and having our products, processes and labs verified by an independent industry leader like UL gives  our customers an important advantage.”

Eaton continues to expand its cybersecurity program and collaboration with global safety science organization UL. With products, processes and labs verified by an independent third-party, Eaton is providing customers with an important advantage.
