Leipzig/Vienna, Germany/Austria, September 10, 2020 – Leading German tech company for industrial and IoT cybersecurity Rhebo partners with full-service IT service provider ABAX Informationstechnik GmbH. With its cybersecurity solutions for operational (OT) and IoT networks Rhebo advances the comprehensive portfolio of the long-established Austrian company. The new partnership follows Rhebo’s strategy of growing market share in Europe.

»The awareness for comprehensive and dedicated cybersecurity in industrial plants has grown strongly in Austria«, Gernot Huber, Managing Director at ABAX, explains the strategic cooperation with Rhebo. »Over the last few years, operational technology and IoT networks have become increasingly important in our own IT cybersecurity projects. Our customers regularly actively approach us about these issues. With Rhebo we can now expand our technology portfolio with a dedicated solution for OT cybersecurity in Industry 4.0 and critical infrastructures. Both approaches – IACS monitoring with anomaly detection and endpoint protection based on anomaly detection for distributed IoT devices – provide our customers with the transparency and security they need in their industrial environments.«

As a full-service company with 25 years of experience, it serves customers in the production, energy supply and oil sectors. The portfolio ranges from structured cabling, network technology and cybersecurity to application support with 24/7 helpdesk.

»We are looking forward to the projects with ABAX«, Klaus Mochalski confirms the cooperation. »With ABAX we gain a partner who has been firmly established in the corporate IT world in Austria for 25 years and who actively drives the topic of OT cybersecurity. In particular, their many years of expertise in the field of energy supply is a perfect match for our target market. The full-service approach of ABAX also convinced us. Industrial companies and critical infrastructures can thus implement cybersecurity holistically and end-to-end.«
