Infotecs at it-sa 2021: ViPNet cyber security solutions for various areas

Berlin, October 7, 2021 – Infotecs, the international cybersecurity provider, will be presenting its ViPNet cybersecurity and threat intelligence platform at it-sa, the IT security expo and congress that will take place October 12 to October 14, 2021, in Nuremberg.

Various studies prove that businesses in Germany deal with losses of over 1 billion euros annually due to cyber attacks. Medium sized manufacturing businesses are an especially attractive target for attacks. Recent incidents show that most businesses are not sufficiently prepared for such attacks causing production downtime and interruptions that sometimes take several weeks to resolve. This often causes loss of confidential company data and business interruptions that threaten even the existence of some companies.

In mid October, Infotecs will present its solution, ViPNet VPN for PLCnext Control by Phoenix Contact at it-sa in Nuremberg. With ViPNet Client installed on a PLCnext Control, you can implement a secure end-to-end encryption connection. It provides reliable access to network resources and extensive network protection against external and internal attacks. In this way, any external service technician can get protected access to systems and machines in production.

"Due to digital transformation, software defined security solutions, which can flexibly react to new and changing requirements to data and system security, become increasingly important", says Josef Waclaw, CEO of Infotecs GmbH. “With ViPNet VPN, security measures can be effectively implemented on top of existing systems, without having to change the existing network structure. Unlike other encryption solutions that often slow down processes and make work difficult and inefficient, Infotecs’ low latency encryption solution provides efficient as well as durable reliable connectivity.”

it-sa is the largest European trade fair for IT security and one of the world's most important platforms for solutions in cloud management, mobile and cyber security, and data and network security. Hosted in Nuremberg since 2009, it-sa is one of the main meeting places for C-level experts, IT security officers from industry, services and administration, as well as developers and vendors of products and services related to IT security and cyber security. In 2019, the fair gathered about 750 participants from 25 countries.
