A high degree of automation is required to achieve intelligent factories – the buzzword here is "Industry 4.0": Machines communicate with other machines; the products being processed provide information via bar codes or RFID chips; and the other systems along the production line from stores to logistics and service are networked with each other and can independently organize optimized processes. This allows highly efficient production processes to be achieved, which nevertheless can accommodate product variations – without human intervention. This is an enormous step forward for industrial production. However, from the IT security point of view, it asks the question: when all components can communicate with each other, how is sensitive data protected from unauthorized access and how can control systems be protected from malicious software and manipulation?
Our solutions allow you to control and restrict data communication as required: for example, to exlusively allow one-way file transfer - data traffic in the opposite direction is consequently blocked - and thereby provide secure protection for your automated production facilities.
