Open Automation with WAGO

Are openness and security mutually exclusive?
Quite the contrary – see for yourself!

Digitalization makes your machine, system and building data available anywhere in the world. To ensure the integrity of your information during Web attacks and Web transfers, it is necessary to protect it.
With our PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers, you’ll always be on the safe side. Learn how the controllers encrypt information directly in the controller and then transmit it to the cloud via IPsec or OpenVPN.

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.

White Paper: IT Security in Production Facilities

Cyber attacks on automation systems and critical infrastructure are increasing. How can companies protect effectively against cyber attacks?

Our white paper “IT Security in Production Facilities – An Introduction for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises” has answers. Read about how you can achieve optimal protection of your systems with an integrated approach with “defense in depth.”

The core content of the white paper includes:

  • Standards that play a role in the area of IT security
  • Ten point plan for protection against cyber attacks
  • Requirements on future automation systems

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

Smart factory: “Security is becoming a key discipline in automation technology”

The notion that a smart, networked, intelligent, autonomous and resource-optimized production will pay companies back has become common sense. Prof. Jörg Wollert, who has served on the teaching faculty at the University of Bochum, the Technical University Bielefeld, and the Technical University Aachen, explains to us what steps should be the first on the path to the Smart Factory. He also points out where corporations cannot afford to drop the ball.

Cybersecurity on Board: “Anyone Who Talks about Maritime 4.0 Has to Do Their Homework”

In the film “Tomorrow Never Dies,” terrorists divert a military ship from its course by manipulating the GPS signals. What was part of the fantasy world of British filmmakers in 1997 – the theatrical release date for the eighteenth James Bond movie – is a real threat a mere 20 years later. “GPS spoofing”, as it is known to the experts, is real, and researchers from the University of Texas provided impressive proof in 2013 when they diverted an $80 million dollar luxury yacht from its course without its crew noticing. What is new in cybersecurity in the shipbuilding industry? Ship builders, system integrators and shipping companies are enthusiastic about the new opportunities that Maritime 4.0 offers. To find out if the sector ready for this, and what still needs to be done, we spoke with Professor Karl-Heinz Niemann from the University of Hanover.
