Secure on the path towards Industry 4.0

In terms of IT security, the introduction of Industry 4.0 technologies in many companies is pioneering work - opening up new methods of working and new possibilities. At the same time, trust in the security of production systems must be the top priority as these industrial systems become networked. If the IT systems of a partner, a supplier or a maintenance technician are infiltrated, the other connected parties will find it difficult to block these attacks. However, especially in the case of industrial production systems, there is a lot of catching up to do with regard to security.

Computacenter offers solutions for industrial processes, minimising security risks, securing production systems and increasing their availability. These solutions are aimed at companies that operate multiple or larger industrial control systems, such as automotive manufacturers/suppliers, transmission/distribution network operators, energy producers and companies in the process or chemical industry as well as logistics. Computacenter’s solutions are based on four pillars: prevention, monitoring, detection and response solutions supplemented by Threat Intelligence. The Industrial Security portfolio includes the following areas:

  • Network segmentation
  • Integrity monitoring of systems and configurations
  • SIEM for asset intelligence, attack detection and monitoring of security-relevant activities
  • Secure remote maintenance and cloud usage
  • Hardening of terminals
  • Risk assessment
  • Awareness creation

As many companies are already using networked production environments without appropriate protective measures, there is no time to lose. After an initial meeting and a one- or two-day workshop, we can identify the risks, the need for action and the measures to be taken in your company. We can then initiate initial projects with the above solutions. Our expert team covers control systems, physical security, shop floor IT, networks, terminals and Industry 4.0 technologies. This extensive solution portfolio makes you fit for Industry 4.0. We protect your production against security incidents and cyber-attacks and lay the foundations for you to confidently enter the age of digital industry.
