How We Ensure Your Project’s Security

SEL manufacturing, research, and business facilities are protected by layered cybersecurity defenses and stringent physical security measures.

We practice secure supply chain management and help customers comply with all applicable supply chain and cybersecurity standards.

The information security, quality, safety, and environmental management systems that underpin SEL research, development, manufacturing, and corporate environments are each certified to internationally recognized standards by the British Standards Institution (BSI). 

Our electronic devices are manufactured in the U.S.A., in facilities we own and operate. PCBs are sourced exclusively from U.S. manufacturers. 

We thoroughly review and test the code that goes into our products. Source code is continually monitored for new threats, and product owners are notified of updates and security patches for the full life of the product.
