Building bridges: For comprehensive protection of sensitive production data, OT and IT must move closer together

To prevent production downtime and protect sensitive data, companies need comprehensive solutions and products tailored to the needs of both OT and IT during the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) era. The IT security company Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity is presenting security solutions for digital industrial processes at this year's Hannover Messe (BITKOM Innovation Area in Hall 6), which build a bridge between OT and IT.

Munich, March 8, 2018 - Sensitive production data are insufficiently separated during IIoT times. In order to guarantee sufficient protection, Operational Technology (OT) and IT must come together and break existing boundaries. The challenge: OT cannot cover the security aspect in production processes. IT must necessarily take over; however, the knowledge of the needs and circumstances of OT are usually insufficient. Comprehensive protection and the prevention of production losses therefore need solutions from companies that know both OT and IT and mediate between them.

Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity presents a three-level security concept for network protection in the "Industry 4.0" at the Hanover Fair, which meets the requirements of both sides. In the first step, the focus is on capture: the IP probe of the R&S Net Sensor classifies 2000 of the most commonly used protocols and applications from different business units and all geographic regions. The R&S Net Sensor covers up to Layer 7 and above for classification, providing detailed insights into the traffic and consistent, high-performance reporting. In the second step, the R&S Net Reporter analysis platform analyzes network traffic and possible anomalies. Together, the two products form the solution R&S Industrial Network Analytics and provide real-time information about the state of a network. Problems resulting from infected machine controls, misconfigurations or potential cyber attacks are detected early on in the solution.

In the third stage of the security concept, the necessary protective measures can be set up on the basis of the analysis with the gateprotect firewalls, and attackers can be fended off quickly and safely. The firewalls are specially designed for complex industrial environments with high protection requirements and meet the IEC 61850-3 standard required for energy systems.

Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity thus offers the complete security solution for industrial companies and is therefore the contact for IT and OT alike. Because the offered product combinations close the security gap between IT and OT and allow a reliable defense function against production losses for both sides. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity solves the existing conflict between IT and OT and thus ensures the reliable protection of digital industrial processes.
