WAGO and Radiflow are partnering to combine their competencies to strengthen resilience against potential cyber threats and make the OT networks of critical infrastructure and industrial environments as secure as possible.

WAGO explains in a press statement that cyber attacks on OT networks, systems and devices can disrupt operations, compromise security and lead to significant financial losses.

“At WAGO, we are convinced that protecting digital and electrical systems goes beyond physical components – it requires a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity. We want to help our customers effectively protect their systems from ever-new cyber threats,” said Thomas Burklé, vice-president of automation sales and industry management EMEA.

WAGO and Radiflow will reportedly bundle their strengths to offer comprehensive OT security solutions tailored to the individual needs of specific markets, such as smart factory, smart building or smart energy.

By integrating Radiflow’s innovative cybersecurity software solutions into WAGO’s products and services, the companies’ customers will reportedly benefit in the following ways:

  • Advanced threat detection: WAGO Cyber Security Network Sight software is based on iSID from Radiflow and enables real-time monitoring and detection of anomalous network behaviour. Continuous monitoring can help companies identify cyber threats at an early stage and respond to them as quickly as possible.
  • Increased security through network segmentation: WAGO Cyber Security Analysis, based on Radiflow’s CIARA, is an automated risk assessment and management platform for companies from the industrial, energy and building sectors. Based on the analysis results, users can reportedly implement network segmentation strategies and significantly minimize the risk of unauthorized access.
  • Inventory and risk assessment: WAGO Cyber Security Analysis is used to create resource management tailored to the customer and to perform a risk assessment. This reportedly allows an up-to-date inventory of the OT measures implemented, proactively identifies vulnerabilities and measures the effectiveness of risk reduction strategies.

“The partnership with WAGO leverages our shared strengths to provide robust, safe and efficient solutions for industrial automation and cybersecurity requirements. Radiflow’s expertise in OT cybersecurity complements WAGO’s product portfolio in all target markets, benefiting customers seeking integrated solutions,” says David Moss, vice-president of sales at Radiflow.
