Whether when operating robots, machine tools or other plants: a trouble-free production sequence is critical to the success of every manufacturing company.
As a rule, failures result in high costs and a loss of reputation. To prevent this, industry leaders rely on permanent plant monitoring in their IT security strategy – and also reliably secure all plant connections, thereby preventing hackers or malicious software from finding an entry point.
genua’s service portfolio for industry enables not only reliable monitoring but also the secure control and remote maintenance of machinery. The key features of our IT security technologies for secure automation and the protection of remote maintenance processes are: simple integration in existing networks, comfortable operation as well as tamper-proof monitoring options for the customer of all remote maintenance access operations.

We tested the cognitix Threat Defender and were surprised how quickly we received the first real-time overview of the network traffic. Following the base installation of the software, a standard set of rules is already available that provides an overview of the network and the installed devices.

genugate, with two coordinated firewalls whose control mechanisms complement each other on different levels, offers reliable protection for our network. Even though we register an increasing number of attacks with the growing success of EUROGATE, the solution has never allowed security problems to occur.
Stephan Krause, IT-administrator, EUROGATE
With these requirements, the genugate firewall is the right solution. The system can be used with high availability in a cluster and, through its two-tier design, offers a security solution that has been tested by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and is certified on an unparalleled high level.

Security is a question of trust. genua is a company of the Bundesdruckerei Group and also supplies security technology to banks, insurance companies and especially sensitive governmental security areas. We have had good experience with genua in the past with the security solutions for our IT.
Ralf Schubert, General Manager of the Gerhard-Schubert packaging machine manufacturer, Gerhard Schubert GmbH
The advantages of the solution from genua are the high security and flexibility while still being very easy to configure. Customers don’t need to perform extensive network settings and, as the manufacturer, we can centrally manage all genuboxes, e.g., to upload current security updates from a single location.
Christopher Kohl, Director of Digitization, INDEX Group
With its two-tier design, the genugate firewall offers a strong security solution that is certified by independent experts on an unparalleled high level. This is a decisive feature, as no risks should be taken when it comes to the protection of sensitive data and company networks.
Thomas Zeller, Director of Security Services at BWG, KASTO

Stephan Rupp, IT system manager/ project leader for the introduction of a uniform teleservice platform, KOMET GROUP
The solution with SSH offers great advantages with respect to both security and installation and was decisive for selecting this VPN appliance. The strong encryption, the access that is clearly limited to the maintenance area and the strict unilateral control for the establishment of connections are arguments that convince security-aware customers that this maintenance access is compatible with their policies.
Karlheinz Huber, IT infrastructure, manroland web systems
Remote maintenance via VPN is a secure and reliable solution that is well received by our customers, making it an important competitive advantage.
Peter Brechtel, Director of IT-Infrastructure, manroland web systems
We use firewalls from various providers to obtain maximum protection at the best possible prices. The central components in this approach are firewalls of type genugate from genua.
