Industry 4.0 connects IT with OT, thereby bringing together two worlds that were previously completely separate. Connected sensors, machines and plants in Industry 4.0 ecosystems increase the complexity and provide new opportunities for cyber criminals to launch attacks. This leads to a higher risk of system failures or even outages.
According to recent surveys and reports, inadequately protected network components and insufciently secured interfaces to the Internet and the corporate network are considered to be the biggest risks for cyber attacks. Older generations of plants in particular are extremely exposed to malware infections and become an open door for blackmailing via Trojans, ransomware, or attacks via remote access.
secunet edge – Protect. Connect. Detect.
Machines demand comprehensive protection from external influences; yet, at the same time, they need to have a degree of openness to increase the connectivity. secunet edge fullfils exactly this seemingly paradoxical demand. Like a protective wrapping, secunet edge covers the machine and decouples the machine’s life cycle from the IT environment. The product thereby provides IT and OT security without any side effects and without any impact on the machines, systems or manufacturing processes. At the same time, secunet edge enables a secure and easy connection to internal and external IT services and IoT platforms. By continually monitoring data ‑ ows in realtime,
embedded sensor functions ensure fast detection of any deviations from regular network traffic (anomalies) and provide additional reliable security.
secunet edge has been designed, developed and patented especially for industrial systems and environments.
