When physical things are equipped with smart sensor and microchip technology and completely connected to one another, they autonomously transmit information and data digitally over the Internet. With the aid of these interfaces, real things can be controlled remotely via virtual commands – in a cyber-physical manner. The data and information exchanged faces a growing number of risks. Inadequately secured systems are open not only to espionage and data theft, but also to malevolent manipulation. Infineon has developed security solutions that combine innovative hardware security and state-of-the-art Encryption technology – after all, it's better to be safe than sorry. Infineon has developed a broad range of easy-to-deploy semiconductor technologies to counter growing security threats in the IoT. These solutions enable system and device manufacturers as well as service providers to capitalize on growth opportunities by integrating the right level of security without compromising on the user experience. Complemented by software and supporting services, our hardware-based products create an anchor of Trust for security implementations, supporting device integrity checks, Authentication and secure key management.
The purpose of Industry 4.0 is to make manufacturing more flexible, efficient and sustainable through communication and intelligence, thus increasing the competitiveness of German industry. One major component of this approach is control technology, which is still far from reaching its full potential. Improved communication methodologies and the rising convergence of information and automation technologies will deliver significant progress – something Beckhoff has always focused on with its PC-based control technology and fieldbus communication. Beckhoff provides the foundational technologies and tools needed today to implement Industrie 4.0 concepts and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, all via PC-based control. TwinCAT engineering and control software packages are available for the creation of applications such as Big Data, pattern recognition as well as condition or power monitoring, in addition to traditional control tasks – which can sustainably increase production and engineering efficiency as a result.
