Are your tools cyber-safe?

それを日本語で読む (Read it in Japanese)

Have you ever wondered whether you have protected your equipment adequately against potential cyber threats? Can you guarantee you won’t introduce a virus during your next tool installation?

Protect your tools against cyber threats graphic

Some legacy equipment runs operating systems that are so old, they do not support virus scanning. If you cannot scan for viruses, you run the risk of infecting your equipment – and potentially an entire factory – with a virus. To be cyber-safe, each tool needs the latest operating system and the latest versions of all automation software products.

We can help ensure you could never cause factory-wide downtime.

We can help you:

  1. Upgrade your tools to modern-day operating systems that support virus scanning.
  2. Install our newest connectivity software products. By entering into a continuous support and maintenance program with us, you will always get the latest versions of our software products. You can also support new technologies and new factory requirements, and maintain your tools in production.
  3. Use our secure remote connectivity product, Remicus™, to perform remote virus scans on all files you move into the factory, manage your ongoing equipment maintenance activities to keep tools up to date, audit tools to address software end of service (EOS) issues, and avoid costly downtime.

Help the factory stay risk-free

Contact us to learn how our factory automation software products and professional services will provide the insurance you need to ensure your tools are cyber-safe.
