Industrial communication. Connected and protected.

Hattersheim, 09. Nov. 2023 – In the coming years, if not decades, security will be the dominant factor in industrial communication infrastructures. Hilscher Gesellschaft für Systemautomation mbH, the leading provider of industrial communication solutions, will be focusing on security-related aspects in the automation industry at SPS 2023 in Nuremberg, Germany.

The communication solutions from the Hattersheim-based company near Frankfurt are a reliable basis for field devices and machines, which have to adhere to the IEC 62443 standard. This IEC standard defines safety processes for industrial control systems and ensures secure development procedures. Comprehensive security testing is an important part of Hilscher’s secure software development lifecycle. The industrial communications specialist also uses tools such as OpenVAS, Nessus, PCLint and SonarQube to analyze vulnerabilities and static code. Grammar, fuzzing, flooding and storm tests are performed to ensure overall system stability. This also aims to prevent denial-of-service scenarios and significantly improve cyber security at the field level.
