IT security

Data security fully integrated

A holistic and deeply integrated security concept is the basis for protecting machines and systems against unauthorized access and risks. Currently and in the future, even more attention will have to be paid to industry-specific requirements for IT security. Network security and remote maintenance are undoubtedly important, but there is more to an integrated industrial security concept. Today's systems are required to have integrity, be available, and primarily maintain the confidentiality of all data.

This is only possible with a deep integration of different mechanisms and procedures on all levels of PLCnext Technology as well as the PLCnext Engineer development environment. Therefore, PLCnext Technology
offers security by design so that security aspects can be implemented according to the worldwide leading standard IEC 62443.

Industrial security is therefore no longer an obstacle, but is the key to new project ideas based on PLCnext Technology. With PLCnext Technology, Phoenix Contact meets the needs of developers and users in a simple manner. This makes it possible to shorten development times, reduce costs, and enables the people involved to focus on the project and their core tasks.
