As a machine manufacturer or operator, you utilize innovative IT technologies for industrial manufacturing plants. This increases the risk of attacks on the internal production environment. The integration of production systems with intelligent control systems and sensors, or the integration of their individual elements into the corporate LAN or even to public networks, is associated with enormous risks.
By using ViPNet VPN, you can control production systems and access machine and operating data from anywhere, being protected from internal and external attacks.
IT Security for Production Systems
Within the industry, two areas can be clearly defined for security purposes: one is the internal area as a part of the local network, in which the production equipment is to be brought together into a protected area. Only certain members of the LAN obtain access to these areas.
On the other hand, it should be possible for machine manufacturers, business partners, and service providers to access the systems externally via the Internet in a controlled manner, whether for teleservice, condition monitoring, managing purposes, or M2M communication.
The ViPNet technology is ideal for any of these individual scenarios or for a mix of them and reduces the risks without limiting the possibilities of modern means of production.
