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.
Unfortunately, there are no suitable results for your filters. You can change or completely reset your filter criteria.
If hackers or a technical malfunction paralyze the servers of a corporation, the failures can lead to millions in damage. One company, Correct Power Institute, has developed a method for monitoring computer centers that quickly traces faults in the power supply and thus ensures high availability of the IT systems. The approach: Controllers from WAGO detect all electrical current and environmental data and use the cloud for analysis. The hardened Linux® operating system in the controllers and Correct Power’s sophisticated security architecture ensure the highest level of data security.
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.
Bernd and Marcel Steinkühler from Correct Power Institute, an IT specialist, discuss attacks from the Internet and potential defenses
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.
“The digital transformation is a vital factor for our success.”
