Smitec safeguards the cyber security of its IOT solutions
Ensuring the safety and privacy of data has become a primary goal for developers of industrial automation solutions. With data communication via Ethernet and and the diffusion of virtual control rooms, industrial devices are prone to be as vulnerable as personal computers.
Smitec uses several technologies to ensure the highest level of cyber security for customers choosing its IOT solutions. In particular, SMYIOT uses an IOT platform, a cloud solution and communication protocols that provide high security standards and constant interventions for their maintenance.
Considering the path that brings the data from the machine on field (4G modem) to the running IOT platform, cyber security is considered satisfied and ensured over time by the choice of solutions such as AWS, AZURE, GOOGLE and ORACLE. Access to the data stored on the IOT platform and the relevant web services is only available to authorized accounts registered in a specific database. Data security and confidentiality are also guaranteed by the use of the HTTPS communication protocol.
Industrial cyber security includes the set of means applicable to factory automation and aimed at making control systems such as PLC, SCADA and HMI immune from cyber attacks. In fact, these are the devices that most deserve attention from companies, being the core of production processes and Industry 4.0.
The cyber security of the path that brings data from the machine on field (4G modem) to the IOT platform running in CLOUD is constantly ensured by the use of reference solutions such as AWS, AZURE, GOOGLE and ORACLE and protected protocols such as HTTPS.
