Endpoint Monitoring to Protect Industry 4.0 in SMEs (Endpoint Monitoring zum Schutz von Industrie 4.0 in KMUs)

Networked industrial control systems enable efficiency gains, but must also be adequately protected against digital threats. EMSIK is based on intelligent control systems. The new solution enables effective endpoint monitoring for early detection of attacks and anomalies, version and update management of the protected end systems, as well as novel cloud-based evaluation of the entire infrastructure through backend monitoring of the collected endpoint information. At the same time, the system is encapsulated by the use of Trusted Execution Environments to enable recovery in case of damage. The EMSIK project is a cooperation between cbb Software GmbH, js|com GmbH, and the Institute for IT Security at the University of Lübeck.
