PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It is now essential for business to consider production infrastructure in their IT security strategies. Meanwhile, there are completely new attack vectors introduced by connecting machinery that must be monitored and protected by IT administrators. NCP’s software components offer a reliable and proven way to secure data communication for IIoT scenarios.

Shared management for IT and OT
When IT and OT are linked in a given scenario, a central management component such as NCP Secure Management is an important component for managing secure communication between operational technology, IT and connected machines and systems. New approaches in IIoT also open up new attack vectors and this means aspects like communication between machines and the cloud need to be considered.

Secure connections
All connections between the end devices and the IIoT remote gateway or the central IIoT gateway and the IIoT remote gateway are encrypted with advanced algorithms (for example using Suite B cryptography). For additional security, all machine certificates can be managed centrally in a public key infrastructure (PKI). This ensures unique authentication for all end devices. Each time a connection is established, certificates are validated against Certification Authority (CA) revocation lists (online or offline).

Multi-tenancy
This feature is ideal for cloud environments or IIoT infrastructure, where multiple production sites share a platform. This is done using group assignment and a convenient rights management system. Administrators can only access the production sites they are assigned to. This means that data is kept secure and cannot be accessed from other protected areas.
