The partnership includes the integration Rhebo’s solution for industrial control system (ICS) monitoring and anomaly detection, called Rhebo Industrial Protector, into Paessler's leading IT monitoring solution PRTG Network Monitor.
»Due to the digitalization of the industrial sector, the connection between enterprise IT and operational technology (OT) is steadily increasing,« comments Helmut Binder, CEO of Paessler, the background of the partnership. »Our PRTG Network Monitor already supports the evaluation of industrial protocols and methods such as OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) and Modbus, as well as the collection of asset performance and availability data.
