Your partner for protection of production and technical installations in an operational environment.
Companies have technical installations in use in their production environment, where some of these systems run on an outdated operating system. These control systems are able to make connections and communicate with other equipment and other components within the system via the network.
It is often thought that these systems are “stand alone” and an “air gap” guarantees safety. However, these outdated systems are increasingly being digitally “connected” and accessed via the internet for data exchange or remote management. Due to the connection and / or local approach with, for example, a USB of the systems, this form of security is easily weakened.
In the context of IT and OT network security, this development is not desirable and research has shown that it is not easy to adapt these “design for purpose” control systems. This is often very expensive.
The development of industry 4.0 or smart industry, the automation and data exchange of production requires an appropriate secure solution.
