ABB evaluates all Microsoft security updates for relevance and system compatibility as they are released by Microsoft. Our goal is to communicate the validation plan for these updates within 24 hours of the release and publish the results of the validation within 7 days.
Microsoft Service packs are tested against the subsequent ABB System service pack or product release.
ABB recommends that a virus scanner is used on all control system servers and workplaces. McAfee VirusScan® Enterprise has been tested and qualified for this purpose. McAfee VirusScan patches, scan engine and virus definition file updates are tested along with ABB’s Microsoft security update testing. Information about the latest patch level, scan engine, and virus definition file versions that have been tested is published together with the Microsoft security update test results.
ABB provides the status of security and antivirus updates as a customer service to our installed base of system users with a valid Automation Sentinel subscription. If you do not have an Automation Sentinel subscription at this time, ABB encourages you to join the program and receive the benefits and support it offers.
