Protect devices in industry and medical technology

The fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, entails new opportunities – but also completely new pitfalls. Nexus solutions help you to secure control systems, robotics, and other devices  used in industry and medical technology.

Embedded computers can be hijacked and infected with harmful code, which can have disastrous consequences. For example, a robot can start to weld in the wrong place, and a laser can suddenly make the wrong incision during an operation.

With Nexus solutions, only approved software can be run in the protected device – all other code is stopped. The solution is built on a so-called “whitelisting” of code and is the opposite of the anti-virus program’s blacklisting of harmful code. Whitelisting takes place by means of issuing identities to approved software. This makes it possible to perform an entitlement control of all code in the protected device.

The solution is suitable for those who would like to:

  • Make your existing devices immune to intrusion and breakdown.
  • Produce smart devices that are secured already at delivery to the customer.
  • Secure devices with or without connection to the internet.

Frequently asked questions

What does IoT mean?

IoT, or Internet of Things, encompasses objects that have been equipped with technology that makes it possible for them to store or exchange data. This can be, for example, a telephone, a card reader, or a car.

What is SE46?

Nexus SE46 functions proactively and protects your units with the help of an application certificate. The certificate makes it possible to identify and authenticate software and applications in IT environments, such that unauthorized content is not allowed to enter the protected zone.
