RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Owl Computing Technologies, Inc., a network security solutions provider, is proud to announce that it has received OPC Foundation Laboratory Certification for its innovative OPC Server Transfer Service (OSTS) software application.

The OSTS software application reads OPC data – Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) for Process Control – from OPC Compliant devices in the process control network, and transfers the data across process control electronic security perimeters using Owl DualDiode® Technology. The data is then made available to OPC clients on the destination networks of critical infrastructure organizations.

Dr. Ronald Mraz, Owl President and CTO, commented, "OPC-DA is pervasive throughout industry process control legacy networks. An Owl Perimeter Defense Solution coupled with OSTS is the most cost effective way to provide next generation cyber security for these legacy systems. Further, the Owl solutions are a drop-in to provide perimeter defense and still share the necessary information for efficient business operations. Owl's OSTS is lab tested, fully compliant with the OPC Data Access (DA) specification, and supports all DA Server versions – 2.05a and 3.0. OSTS also implements OPC tunneling to eliminate DCOM issues, supports the direct import of OPC source points from a spreadsheet, and provides comprehensive diagnostics and statistics logging for your OPC needs."

The Data Access Certification process – established by the OPC Foundation – assists developers in achieving end-user requirements for product interoperability among vendors, robust operation in extreme situations, and best-practice performance and design expectations. The OPC Certification program also verifies system behavior and documentation with proper OPC testing.

With 470 member vendors, the OPC Foundation is an industry driven initiative to promote standardization and interoperability of process control systems and instrumentation. With a rising end-user demand for certified products, the OPC Foundation establishes product credibility by ensuring compliance with OPC Specifications.
