Leipzig / Essen, Germany, January 23, 2018 - This year’s E-World trade fair, which takes place from February 6 to 8, 2018 in Essen, Germany, will be all about the »Smart City«. Focal points in this future field are integrative solutions, innovations and smart concepts. In addition to the implementation of big data strategies, the vision of a smart city characterized by decentralized supply and remote control is decisively determined by aspects of cybersecurity and a dysfunction-free network operation.


Effective management and security of Industrial networks with Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0

Rhebo addresses the challenges of an effective defense-in-depth strategy with the advancement of its automatic anomaly detection as the main feature of Rhebo Industrial Protector. The monitoring solution comprehensively monitors telecontrol systems and industrial control networks and secures them against cyber-attacks, manipulation, sabotage and operational disruptions. With the further development, Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0 ensures full data integration and simplifies the management of anomalies and threats. In doing so, Rhebo is responding to specific requirements resulting from discussions and projects with operators of critical infrastructures and the automation industry. Hence, network administrators are supported even more comprehensively in their effective management of anomalies in their telecontrol network with the new functions of Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0. This further strengthens the security, stability and compliance of their telecontrol systems and processes.


Big data and flexibility management in the smart city

For the first time at the E-World trade fair, innovative startups will be brought together with established companies at the Bitkom Innovation Forum to discuss the »Energy Transition in the Smart City«. In this new forum, companies pitch their most pressing challenges and start-ups respond with innovative solutions. As part of the Innovation Forum Dr. Frank Stummer, responsible for Business Development at Rhebo, will be addressing the challenges of »Big Data and Flexibility Management in the Smart City«.

»Cybersecurity and dysfunction-free telecontrol systems are the cornerstones for the security of energy supply in the relatively open infrastructure of a smart city«, Frank Stummer warns. »Therefore, it is even more crucial for developers of smart city concepts and operators of telecontrol systems to always be aware of all processes in their networks, to be able to react effectively to any kind of interference or dysfunction, and to process the data intelligently ‒ for reasons of safety and costs.«
