MAN CEON Achieves ABS Cyber Security Certification


(HOUSTON) MAN CEON, the digital platform of MAN Energy Solutions, has received the ABS Cyber Security Product Design Assessment (PDA) certificate.

Integration with AWS

MAN CEON connects machinery to Amazon Web Services (AWS), the cloud storage platform provided by Amazon. This integration allows for the transmission of data used to provide up-to-date information on component and system efficiency, availability, and real-time shore-based monitoring.

ABS CyberSafety Program

The PDA certification is part of the ABS CyberSafety® Program, which aids equipment manufacturers in identifying and remedying cybersecurity vulnerabilities within risk management processes, governance, and the final system itself.

Addressing Cybersecurity Risks

“As connectivity and reliance on digitally enabled systems increase, more risk is introduced into the maritime supply chain. By working with the ABS CyberSafety team to address these risks, MAN Energy Solutions is giving owners confidence that the known vulnerabilities can be managed to minimize the impact on a vessel’s cybersecurity posture while providing useful operational information,” said Patrick Ryan, ABS Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer.

MAN CEON’s Advanced Capabilities

Gregory Puckett, Chief Digital Officer of MAN Energy Solutions, highlighted, “MAN CEON is characterized by its advanced data-analysis capabilities and offers real-time monitoring and support for MAN Energy Solutions products worldwide. The platform integrates data analytics, machine learning, and predictive technologies to optimize performance, enhance efficiency, and minimize downtime.”

Significance of the Certification

“We are thrilled to receive this certification from ABS. It is a significant milestone, which stands testament to the robustness and resilience of MAN CEON’s digital infrastructure and its adherence to the highest standards of cybersecurity. It not only validates our efforts in implementing stringent cybersecurity measures but also reinforces our commitment to delivering secure, high-quality digital solutions to our customers in the maritime and energy sectors,” added Puckett.
