Integrated Advanced Cyber Security
The Importance of Cyber Security in Energy Automation Products
Secure products in energy automation are the basis for a secure system for energy automation. The requirements for the IT security functions of the products depend on various factors. This includes the intended function of the products (protection, control, operation and monitoring) and the spatial deployment of the products. The security functions in modern energy automation products follow the general protection goals of IT security: availability, integrity and confidentiality.
Main features of our products:
Logging of security-relevant events
Use of cryptochips that guarantee secure cryptographic functions and storage of sensitive information
Integrity check of own firmware
physical segregation between process communication and management communication
In addition, we ensure that the regular installation of OS security patches and antivirus patterns does not interfere with the availability of power automation functions.
