Siemens and McAfee, a division of Intel Security, team up to provide security solutions and services for industrial customers

09.04.2014
  • Industrial integration, connectivity and the "Internet of Things and Services" presents unique security challenges
  • Siemens industrial security offerings will leverage McAfee's expertise and broad portfolio to improve reliability and availability for industrial customers

The Siemens Industry Sector and McAfee, a division of Intel Security, plan to extend their partnership to enhance the security offerings for industrial customers to protect against rapidly evolving global cyber threats. This partnership will take advantage of the depth of both companies' security portfolios and further enhances the joint effort started in 2011.

Industrial customers face unique new challenges including a wider range of cyber threats than ever before. They often lack the resources necessary to respond efficiently to security incidents and do not have access to the global threat intelligence that would allow proactive defensive measures. This critical information is needed in order to keep up with evolving government regulations, industry standards, sector specific best practices, and other risk information necessary for making informed business decisions.

The cooperation with McAfee will complement Siemens' service offerings by leveraging security solutions such as next generation firewall, security information and event management (SIEM), endpoint security, and global threat intelligence as part of its Managed Security Service as well as offering professional services. These offerings provide greater visibility and control at the factory level while reducing the risk of IP theft.

"McAfee's broad portfolio of security technologies can serve as a great enabler of Siemens Industrial Security service offerings," said Siegfried Russwurm, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Siemens' Industry Sector speaking at the Hannover Messe. "This will further strengthen our leading position in automation and drive technologies by providing additional security solutions and services to our industrial customer base. Industrial security is one of the building blocks for strong demand of connected manufacturing environments, and for the continued resurgence of the manufacturing sector globally. This partnership will be an important foundation for the future of manufacturing and Industrie 4.0."

"Siemens provides a deep experience in automation across numerous industries," said Michael Fey, worldwide chief technology officer at McAfee. "By combining forces, McAfee, Intel and Siemens can drive the adoption of connected, managed and secured solutions at the plant level in order to help industrial customers to manage their security while bringing the uptime and reliability of the plant operations to a higher level. This collaboration should allow us to address the unique requirements of Industrial Control System customers for the operations technology market thus providing a complete security view across the entire company."

In addition, the companies will continue to cooperate on the development of security products and solutions, specifically based on industrial protocols, that will enhance managed security service offerings for the process and factory automation industry. As "Industrie 4.0", part of the "Internet of Things and Services" rolls out, industrial customers will benefit from the unique advantages that connected and managed systems bring to the factory floor.

Im Focus: Hyperspektrale Bildgebung zur 100%-Inspektion von Oberflächen und Schichten

„Mehr sehen, als das Auge erlaubt“, das ist ein Anspruch, dem die Hyperspektrale Bildgebung (HSI) gerecht wird. Die neue Kameratechnologie ermöglicht, Licht nicht nur ortsaufgelöst, sondern simultan auch spektral aufgelöst aufzuzeichnen. Das bedeutet, dass zur Informationsgewinnung nicht nur herkömmlich drei spektrale Bänder (RGB), sondern bis zu eintausend genutzt werden.

Das Fraunhofer IWS Dresden entwickelt eine integrierte HSI-Lösung, die das Potenzial der HSI-Technologie in zuverlässige Hard- und Software überführt und für...

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
