IIoT gateway that connects machines with cloud platforms for
Industry 4.0 scenarios
Edge computing platform on industrial-grade hardware
Firewall with network monitoring and AI-based anomaly and threat detection that secures production assets and even legacy machines
One platform. Many applications.
The flexible environment can be used to cover multiple use cases via an organization-wide platform as well as via just one physical appliance. In addition to existing applications from secunet and partners, own applications can also be conveniently implemented. Important functions of the platform - such as the dedicated Secure Element for cryptography - are available to the applications via an API.
Application areas for secunet edge
The "Connect" application area enables secure connection of systems to infrastructures, processes, cloud services and (Industrial) Internet of Things (IoT or IIoT) platforms. secunet edge offers modern technology for secure communication of systems within production networks as well as with the corporate network and external interfaces.
With the "Remote" application area of secunet edge, systems such as control or automation technology can be maintained remotely. With the overall solution, this is also possible for older infrastructures and systems, even though they do not meet the technical requirements themselves. secunet edge provides compensating security and makes secure remote access and protected remote maintenance possible even after the fact.
secunet edge protects against attacks and manipulations via the "Protect" application area. In addition to firewall functionality, older systems in particular can be hidden from attackers and malware via a "stealth mode". This significantly reduces the attack surface.
In interaction with secunet monitor, secunet edge monitors the security and quality aspects of networks. Distributed sensors recognize attack patterns and detect vulnerabilities and anomalies in the system at an early stage. In this way, attacks can be averted and system failures prevented. "Monitor" is available as an add-on for secunet edge appliances and requires a core system or an as-a-service subscription to secunet monitor.
As a platform, secunet edge brings a flexible yet secure application environment to the edge of digital infrastructures. In addition to an environment compatible with the Open Container Initiative (OCI) or Docker, secunet edge integrates Microsoft Azure as well as various middleware from secunet partners.
FAST DATA FLOW
secunet edge wraps itself around machines and other systems like a protective shell and decouples their lifecycles from the IT environment. Thus, the solution provides IT and OT security without impacting machines, systems or production processes. In addition, its inherent vulnerability, attack and anomaly detection protects.
Thanks to the flexible structure of the overall solution, many areas of application are possible, including those that may only take off in the near future - for example, autonomization by means of machine learning. secunet edge is flexible in terms of the breadth of application areas and can at the same time be specifically aligned to concrete industry use cases - as the following practical examples show:
Secure remote access and proactive monitoring in distributed power supply
secunet edge enables secure remote access and protected remote administration for distributed and networked power generation plants, substations or other plants "in the field". With the same infrastructure, security states and quality aspects can also be monitored proactively.
Hybrid applications in automotive production on a secure basis
secunet edge brings applications up to hybrid applications with partial routines in the cloud as close as possible to physical production. The flexible platform enables this securely and efficiently both in greenfield approaches and in the brownfield (retrofit).
Screening of water supply & wastewater treatment systems and use of advanced applications.
secunet edge also retrofits systems in critical infrastructures such as fresh water supply or wastewater treatment plants. In addition to providing a protective umbrella and a cloak of invisibility for risky systems, the platform can also be used for modern applications - for example, to increase energy efficiency.
Shielding, monitoring, remote access, application platform and more for industrial production
secunet edge enables or extends your capabilities at the boundary between the digital world and the physical world and increases the security of your production processes. As an overall solution, it combines many use cases in a stable and trustworthy infrastructure.
MedTec 4.0 - Networked operating rooms, medical technology and hospital infrastructure
Medical IT (MIT) requires comprehensive protection against external influences from connected IT networks on the one hand, but at the same time the options for comprehensive networking, data-driven process optimization and support for new medical applications.

What advantages does secunet edge offer over comparable solutions?
The focus of secunet edge is on a mature solution that can be used as well as possible in production and other critical areas. Core aspects of this focus are:
- Cost efficiency through industrial lifecycles, multifunctionality and interoperability as well as minimized configuration and maintenance efforts.
- Convenience through user-friendliness for integrators, operators and operating personnel, centralized management and scalability, and an ecosystem with carefully maintained middleware and application components from secunet and partners.
- Premium security through solid cryptography (including a dedicated Secure Element), security-by-design and security-by-default, and reliable updates.
