Eaton brings world’s first UL certified UPS network card to ANZ
The launch marks the expansion of Eaton’s cybersecurity program and collaboration with global safety science organisation UL, establishing a measurable cybersecurity standard for power management products and systems. New UL cybersecurity certification for Eaton’s connected uninterruptible power supply (UPS) technology demonstrates the company’s capabilities to meet stringent specifications and customer expectations for safe, secure power management.
Eaton has collaborated with UL as part of a global effort between its Power Quality Division and Cybersecurity Centre of Excellence. With the industry’s first test lab approved to participate in UL's Cybersecurity Assurance Program, and a second lab recently approved, Eaton is rigorously assessing products for compliance with UL 2900-1 and 2900-2-2 standards.
The Gigabit Network M2 empowers IT professionals with new capabilities and superior speed, while ensuring the highest level of defence against emerging cybersecurity threats. Enhancements include stronger encryption, configurable password policies and the use of signed digital certificates. The device is compatible with today’s widespread Gigabit network switches and can be installed in Gigabit-only data centre networks.
“We know cybersecurity is a global threat and having the capability worldwide to ensure the highest standards are consistently applied to our technology is a key advantage for our customers,” said Michael Regelski, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Eaton.
“Our collaboration with UL demonstrates our commitment to advancing these new technologies and innovations, while building trust and ensuring the highest level of defence against emerging cybersecurity threats.”
John Atherton, General Manager, Power Quality ANZ at Eaton said a deeply embedded approach for managing cybersecurity risks throughout the entire product lifecycle is critical.
“With cyberthreats becoming more prevalent and sophisticated, we are committed to ensuring the UPS doesn’t offer an entry point. Eaton’s development lifecycle ensures products are secure by design. The Gigabit Network M2 is engineered to protect data centre UPS against cyberthreats so customers don’t have to take chances with their systems.
“As industries introduce smarter connected technologies that further interlink everyday life, trust is becoming increasingly important. With products tested in our specialised labs to UL’s stringent standards, we can ensure customers can connect with confidence.”

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
