HOUSTON, TX – PAS Global, the leading solution provider of ICS cybersecurity, process safety, and asset reliability in the energy, power, and process industries, was named the #1 alarm management technology provider in the ARC Market Analysis Report: Alarm Management Global Market 2018-2023, a comprehensive global market study of alarm management suppliers for industrial process industries. PAS also grew their alarm management software business at a faster pace than any competitor in 2018. The ARC report is based on thousands of user surveys, telephone interviews, plant visits, and in-depth profiles of hundreds of suppliers and users.
“The alarm management market is growing at a healthy double-digit pace driven by new markets, migrations from older installations, and business drivers such as compliance with current standards like ISA 18.2,” says Mark D.

PAS, which according to ARC research is the largest alarm management supplier, also has major relationships with many of the major DCS suppliers.
