Your partner for the protection of production and technical installations in an operational environment.
Many companies employ technical installations in their production environment that run on outdated operating systems. 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It is often thought that these systems are “stand alone” and an “air gap” guarantees safety: however, these outdated systems are increasingly being digitally “connected” to other systems via the internet for data exchange and/or remote management. Due to these connections, for example trough a USB, security is easily weakened.
In the context of IT and OT network security, these seemingly convenient advancements in technology are susceptible to breach and research has shown that it is not easy or cheap to equip these “design for purpose” control systems with adequate safety checks.
The development of industry 4.0 or smart industry, and the automation of data exchange in production requires enhanced and customized cybersecurity solution.
