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.
