Cybersecurity certifications for DX class elevators


Kone Corporation has gained the IEC 62443 cybersecurity certification for its DX class elevators, and ISO 27001 certification for its digital services, including Kone 24/7 Connected Services.

"These achievements are a first for the global elevator and escalator industry", says the company.

According to the Kone, to achieve the certifications, the company underwent rigorous independent audits conducted by third-party certification bodies. The audits evaluated the company's cybersecurity and information security controls and processes, including policies, procedures, technical controls and requirements.

Around-the-clock security monitoring

Kone also implements around-the-clock security monitoring for its connected digital solutions. According to Kone, this also means that the DX class elevator is aligned with the new ISO 8102-20 cybersecurity standard for elevators, escalators and moving walkways, which Kone has been involved in creating, alongside industry peers.

"As DX-class elevators are the first in the industry to have built-in connectivity, this has been a top priority for Kone in terms of certifications, and our development of new products will continue to follow the certified process," the company said.
