Meet Infotecs at MWC19 in Barcelona in hall 7, stand 7 B81

Nowadays more and more employees and managers work on the go and use mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones, for business communication. It offers mobility and flexibility and contributes to high productivity in the business world. However, the number of cyber-attacks and security breaches keeps growing, which can create multiple problems, like, for example, data theft and manipulation. That is why it is important to ensure that connections between mobile devices and backend systems, such as mail or ERP/CRM servers, are secure and encrypted. The General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (EU GDPR) effective from May 25, 2018 stipulates these legal requirements.

At MWC19, stand 7 B81, hall 7, Infotecs demonstrates how to ensure the encrypted data transfer within a company. The security experts present the ViPNet Connect GDPR-compliant messenger for iOS, Android and Windows and the IT security solution for secure connections of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and IoT devices. This solution allows external technical specialists to access the machine data securely from their tablets via a mobile data network. ViPNet is based on the MICA industrial platform developed by HARTING and compatible with the Bosch CISS sensor to simultaneously monitor parameters, such as temperature, movement, pressure, etc., and transfer the encrypted data worldwide, for example, in a SCADA system.

Josef Waclaw, CEO of Infotecs GmbH, explains: "IIoT and IoT devices are used in different fields, such as, for example, industrial manufacturing, to monitor current machine conditions. Secure data transfer, e.g. in the cloud, is necessary to consider the technology acceptable. With the Retro Fit monitoring solution by Infotecs, old systems can be connected to the network and integrated into the Digital Trust Environment."

It is the sixth time Infotecs participates as an exhibitor in MWC (previously Mobile World Congress) that will take place on February 25-28, 2019, in Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain. Every year, MWC grows not only in the number of visitors, but also the number of exhibitors (2,400 exhibitors in 2018 compared with 2,300 exhibitors in 2017), which reflects the increased interest in the mobile technology market trends. This year's motto of the event is Intelligent Connectivity. The largest meeting of the mobile data industry players consistently presents new products, technologies, and services that define the future of mobile communications.
