Industrial Network Security and IEC-62443-Compliance at the SPS IPC Drives

, Nuremberg / Leipzig
SPS 2018 Rhebo
  • Rhebo presents latest evolution of its Industrial Security and Continuity solution
  • Rhebo Industrial Protector anomaly detection supports Industry 4.0 companies in implementing the IEC 62443 standard to secure industrial communication networks.
  • Results from stability and security audits confirm the need for end-to-end network transparency

Nuremberg/Leipzig, Germany, October 30, 2018 - Under the motto »Smart and Digital Automation«, Europe's leading trade fair for industrial automation is concentrating this year entirely on the intelligent implementation of digital transformation in industrial companies. In addition to components for increasing efficiency, the core topic is increasingly the safeguarding of productivity and cyber security in industrial environments. The success of Industry 4.0 depends on the stable and secure operation of the industrial networks. They are the nervous system and thus form the basis for plant availability, productivity and, ultimately, business continuity management.

At SPS IPC Drives, the German company Rhebo, as a specialist for reliability and cyber resilience of industrial companies and critical infrastructure companies, will present their latest version of the industrial anomaly detection Rhebo Industrial Protector. The network monitoring solution supports industrial companies by continuously monitoring industrial network communication, both in the defense against cyber risks and in the early identification of technical error states. This means that the implementation of complete network transparency and detailed risk analyses, as required by the international IEC 62443 industry standard, can be effectively and sustainably fulfilled.

Identifying network anomalies

Klaus Mochalski, CEO of Rhebo, emphasizes the relevance of complete visibility in Industrial Control Systems: »We know from our Rhebo Industry 4.0 Stability and Security Audits in industrial and critical infrastructure companies that very few operators have complete insight into their own networks. So far, all operators have been visibly surprised by the anomalies we have identified in their Industrial Control Systems. Not only anomalies that endanger cyber security are notable. Above all, companies are usually completely unaware of anomalies that indicate technical error conditions and misconfigurations and thus have an influence on business continuity as well«.

In addition to product demonstrations in context of insights from studies, surveys and network audits, Rhebo will give keynotes and lectures. Additionally, it will participate in 6 Guided Tours, and hold a press conference to discuss the challenges in facing the management of industrial networks.
