Digitization & Industry 4.0
Digitization and Industry 4.0 are unstoppable. For manufacturing companies the combination of operational and information technologies represents a new – and much improved – way of meeting customer needs and thus opens up new business opportunities.
The greatest challenge lies usually with the machines and the production process, which until a few years ago were self-contained systems that could only be controlled locally as there was a massive wall between the operational & information technology worlds. With this said: it remains true that blocking access to a machine from the outside remains an important element of securing your business secrets.
