OVERALL SOLUTION FOR EDGE COMPUTING

The flexible environment can be used to cover multiple use cases via an organization-wide platform as well as via just one physical appliance. In addition to existing applications from secunet and partners, own applications can also be conveniently implemented. Important functions of the platform - such as the dedicated Secure Element for cryptography - are available to the applications via an API.

REMOTE MAINTENANCE WITH FULL COMPLIANCE

With the "Remote" application area of secunet edge, systems such as control or automation technology can be maintained remotely. With the overall solution, this is also possible for older infrastructures and systems, even though they do not meet the technical requirements themselves. secunet edge provides compensating security and makes secure remote access and protected remote maintenance possible even after the fact.

PROTECTIVE SCREEN WITH STEALTH

secunet edge protects against attacks and manipulations via the "Protect" application area. In addition to firewall functionality, older systems in particular can be hidden from attackers and malware via a "stealth mode". This significantly reduces the attack surface.

MONITORING SECURITY AND QUALITY

In interaction with secunet monitor, secunet edge monitors the security and quality aspects of networks. Distributed sensors recognize attack patterns and detect vulnerabilities and anomalies in the system at an early stage. In this way, attacks can be averted and system failures prevented. "Monitor" is available as an add-on for secunet edge appliances and requires a core system or an as-a-service subscription to secunet monitor.

APPLICATION ENVIRONMENT AT THE EDGE OF INFRASTRUCTURES

As a platform, secunet edge brings a flexible yet secure application environment to the edge of digital infrastructures. In addition to an environment compatible with the Open Container Initiative (OCI) or Docker, secunet edge integrates Microsoft Azure as well as various middleware from secunet partners.

 APPLICATION AREAS FOR SECUNET EDGE 

EFFICIENCY

The long life cycle and low risk of disruptions make secunet edge a sustainable overall solution for edge computing. The platform approach means that relevant applications can also be connected easily and flexibly in the future.

HIGH SECURITY

As an IT security partner of the Federal Republic of Germany, we specialize in highly secure solutions. Therefore, our overall edge computing solution is based on solid cryptography and other highly secure components and configurations.

VERSATILITY

secunet edge covers a wide variety of use cases - from secure networking in production, to medical facilities, to new digital approaches in legacy infrastructures. Talk to us about your individual needs and requirements.

INTEGRATABLE

With its Docker compatibility, which eliminates the need to load an operating system, secunet edge and all its applications can be easily integrated into existing systems. Low entry barriers and flat learning curves for configuration and administration facilitate the changeover.

FAST DATA FLOW

Large volumes of generated data are analyzed, processed and converted directly into usable information using secunet edge. Processing capacities are conserved.

ATTACK PROTECTION

secunet edge wraps itself around machines and other systems like a protective shell and decouples their lifecycles from the IT environment. Thus, the solution provides IT and OT security without impacting machines, systems or production processes. In addition, its inherent vulnerability, attack and anomaly detection protects.

FUTURE-RELEVANT

Thanks to the platform approach, secunet edge grows with the size of your network. In addition, the flexible structure also makes areas of application possible that may only become relevant in the future, e.g. autonomization by means of machine learning.

MULTIPLE POSSIBILITIES.

Thanks to the flexible structure of the overall solution, many areas of application are possible, including those that may only take off in the near future - for example, autonomization by means of machine learning. secunet edge is flexible in terms of the breadth of application areas and can at the same time be specifically aligned to concrete industry use cases - as the following practical examples show:

SCENARIO 1

ENERGY SUPPLY

Secure remote access and proactive monitoring in distributed power supply

secunet edge enables secure remote access and protected remote administration for distributed and networked power generation plants, substations or other plants "in the field". With the same infrastructure, security states and quality aspects can also be monitored proactively.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS COMPACT

What advantages does secunet edge offer over comparable solutions?

The focus of secunet edge is on a mature solution that can be used as well as possible in production and other critical areas. Core aspects of this focus are:

  • Cost efficiency through industrial lifecycles, multifunctionality and interoperability as well as minimized configuration and maintenance efforts.

  • Convenience through user-friendliness for integrators, operators and operating personnel, centralized management and scalability, and an ecosystem with carefully maintained middleware and application components from secunet and partners.

  • Premium security through solid cryptography (including a dedicated Secure Element), security-by-design and security-by-default, and reliable updates.

Is networking or retrofitting of older machines possible?

Retrofitting machines with security and/or functionality is one of the solution's most important use cases. secunet edge has already been in use in production environments in the financial sector for over ten years, where it breathes new life into veteran digital systems.
