Cybersecurity Instructions

When it comes to software and cybersecurity, WAGO proactively supports you to best protect your existing industrial automation processes. Whenever new potential threats arise, we provide you with recommendations, patches and updates as quickly as possible to minimize the risk.

In any case, the best protection is to keep the cybersecurity issue in mind and protect your assets and systems from unauthorized access and intrusive malware.
When installing products with ETHERNET interfaces, we also recommend that you follow the instructions listed here and the corresponding information in our product manuals.

Cybersecurity in Critical Infrastructure (KRITIS)

WAGO’s diverse selection of automation technology has put to use in numerous applications, for many years, in different industries around the world. That’s why it makes so much sense for external IT security experts to take a very close look at it – since doing so provides even greater cybersecurity with WAGO components. How so? Because our systems are being continually put to the test, constant updates make them more and more secure.

This is especially helpful in terms of our commitment to the energy industry, since attackers on the network often focus precisely on sensitive critical infrastructure (KRITIS). To get ahead of unauthorized access attempts, external security experts are constantly and proactively stressing our automation components in order to identify potential risks at an early stage. This gives us and our partners the opportunity not only to identify any security vulnerabilities early on, but also to fix them promptly – before they can be exploited.

WAGO’s “Product Security Incident Response Team” (PSIRT) provides you with information on security vulnerabilities, including security advisories, in an RSS feed, so you’re always up to date.
