Securing the Industry 4.0 with DXC & IOTA
Böblingen, 19.04. 2018 – 67 percent of industry managers in Germany expect that smart factory networks will create new security risks that they can not master with their own expertise. Fighting digital security risks is also the top priority for three-quarters of companies on their to-do list – according to the latest survey results of the DXC Technology study on digital transformation in Germany.
“Many companies do not know how to protect the new Industry 4.0 networks professionally,” says Martin Rainer, Manufacturing Industry Leader, DXC Technology North & Central Europe. “At the Hanover Fair, we are presenting concrete solutions in a live demonstration together with the security specialists from IOTA. Important insight for the visitors will be: Digital security is not a vision of the future from the research laboratory, but reality. ”
The partnership between DXC Technology and IOTA consistently focuses on practical solutions for secure digital transformation: IOTA’s “Distributed Ledger Technology” provides a security solution that can be used to process mass data. This makes it possible to promote the Industry 4.0 networking with sensors in production and to secure the resulting data volume. In particular, the focus is on data transfer and communication between machines.

“IOTA technology brings its numerous advantages in many areas of digital transformation,” says IOTA co-founder Dominik Schiener. “The decentralized structure, the high, inherent security level and the security against manipulation contribute to this. In this way, existing processes can be made more efficient and new business models developed. ”
With its combination of information technology and the associated penetration of production facilities, DXC is the ideal integration partner for the IOTA protocol.
The IOTA technology, with its many application possibilities, provides an important building block for companies to tackle one of the biggest hurdles on the path of transformation: professionally protecting the new digital world against risks.
