The companies entered a partnership to jointly develop software solutions and protect systems against cyber attacks
Swiss sheet metal processing leader Bystronic agreed on a partnership with NanoLock Security, an Israeli device-level cyber security provider, to co-develop innovative solutions for the former’s sheet and tube metal cutting, bending and automation systems.
Over the past few years, Bystronic has successfully developed its own Smart Factory Software Suite, together with the recently acquired company Kurago – which digitizes all business processes and interconnects machines with all other customer processes.
To mitigate exposure of customer systems to potential cyber risks at these interconnections, the company has teamed up with NanoLock, and the two companies are expected to present their joint solution later this year at EuroBlech 2022.
“Our vision regarding the factory of the future is to give our customers the capability to manage their entire material and data flow,” said Alberto Martínez, Chief Digital Officer at Bystronic.
“In the future, customers will connect their systems as devices to the cloud and for that reason, cyber security is of utmost importance. With the new partnership, we ensure peace of mind for our customers by covering all aspects for our customers’ smart factories."
"Smart factories must integrate strong machine-level protection against cyber security risks to ensure the operational integrity of their systems,” added Eran Fine, co-founder and CEO of NanoLock.
“Our machine-level solution brings trustworthy protection to industrial systems without having any impact on performance. We are proud to work with Bystronic and jointly develop secure solutions for their smart systems – thereby setting a benchmark for the entire industry."
