Cybersecurity – Because Digitization Is Only Intelligent if It Is Secure

Security with WAGO

Encrypt Machine Data Securely with WAGO

Within automation, optimized manufacturing processes is the subject of many new business models in the context of digitization. Regardless of whether machines are outsourced or communication occurs between multiple production facilities, it is inevitable that machine data no longer remains where it was generated – data leaves the factory along multiple paths.

Cybersecurity Made by WAGO

For many years, machine data was only evaluated and used in the manufacturing facility in which it was generated. Thus, the risk of unauthorized data access was relatively low. Use of classic defense-in-depth measures ensured that machine data was well protected.

WAGO’s PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers encrypt information directly in the controller and subsequently transmit the data to the cloud via IPsec or OpenVPN. This ensures that machine data is optimally protected against unauthorized access.

Step-by-step to the solution:

  • Previously: Data remained in the manufacturing hall.
  • Digitization: Defense-in-depth carries risks.
  • The solution: Data encryption happens in the controller.

Integrated Firewall Comes Standard in the PFC100 and PFC200

Increased networking has triggered rising concerns about IT security. Therefore, machine manufacturers and operators are intensifying their efforts to protect their own machine data.

WAGO’s PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers come with an integrated firewall that protects against unauthorized network access.

The benefits for you:

  • Support for all relevant secure data exchange protocols: SNMP v3, SFTP, FTPS, HTTPS and SSH
  • Other protocols supported: DHCP, DNS, FTP, TELNET and Modbus TCP/UDP
  • Integrated firewall comes standard, with pre-configured rules for configuration of whitelisting/blacklisting or MAC filters
  • Option of controller setup according to the requirements stated in the BDEW (Federal Association of Energy and Water Industries) white paper and the BSI-IT (Federal Office for Information Security) security catalog
