Highly secure remote maintenance with the ECOS SecureBootStick and the genua Remote Maintenance client
In the wake of expanding plant networking and rising security requirements, remote plant maintenance, IT systems and IoT devices are playing an increasingly important role.
Many companies with remotely maintained machines are concerned about the security of their systems and machinery.
Professional remote maintenance solutions such as genua Remote Maintenance provide a secure connection to machine networks.
If you are seeking maximum protection against viruses or Trojans and want to keep your company' s secrets confidential, you are best protected with the ECOS SecureBootStick CL/HE and the integrated genua Remote Maintenance client. Based on the zero-trust model, the connection is initiated after password entry out of a protected, encapsulated environment, so that possible malware on the computer cannot pose a threat to the plant operator in terms of cyberattacks or espionage.
Many companies, especially those subject to the German national industrial security program, are also required to operate remote maintenance components approved by the Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI) for classification level VS-NfD. The ECOS SecureBootStick SX/ZX and its integrated genua Remote Maintenance client provide highly secure access for service engineers to sensitive company systems from anywhere. All you need is a notebook and an ECOS SecureBootStick SX or ZX.
All software required to establish a secure VPN connection and access the genua Rendezvous Server is on the SBS. Users do not need to install or configure any software.
A certificate is implemented for secure 2-factor authentication and tied to the hardware ID of the Secure Boot Stick. Thus, each user authenticates themselves with their password and their personal SBS.
Maximum protection against espionage, manipulation and malware.
The concept: No more one-way accesses from remote maintainers to customer networks. Instead, all maintenance connections are routed through a rendezvous server located in a demilitarized zone (DMZ) next to the firewall, either at the maintainer's or the customer's site.
Both remote maintainer and customer connect to the server at an appointed time. A continuous maintenance connection is only established after rendezvous on the server. The remote maintainer can now connect to the machine or IT system located within the customer's network
genua's and ECOS' remote maintenance solution secures the remote maintainer endpoint and grants full control over maintenance access into your networks.
