Field-proven solutions that meet the highest cybersecurity standards
With billions of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices connected worldwide, cybersecurity is crucial to the success of the digital economy. An effective cybersecurity strategy must take the form of a holistic approach to protect critical systems against unauthorized access or attack.
Siemens offers this holistic approach with its portfolio of RUGGEDCOM products, systems, and services to protect data and equipment. Our industrial network experts have more than a decade of expertise in designing and maintaining OT networks.
Siemens defense in depth approach to digitalized operations is based on the IEC62443 standard that takes into account attacker motivations and a network’s unique design to create a unified solution which protects against current and future threats – all from a single source.
