The increased interconnectivity of digital systems with numerous, often lowcost industrial devices as well as emerging new security threat vectors require the design and deployment of new security measures. Program code or configuration data of a programmable logic controller (PLC) can be read out or manipulated through interfaces that lack sufficient protection. IT security laws mandate the protection of process and automation systems against cyber-attacks. Any intrusion of unauthorized personnel into automation systems can cause damage to or misuse of critical infrastructures. If systems are compromised, the modifications are often records hard to trace or go undetected. This makes countermeasures even more difficult and thus contributes to further endangering the safety of critical infrastructure.


The Software OPANASec secures and monitors the integrity of your SIMATIC automation systems.
OPANASec Integrity Protection ensures that the software of PLCs is not penetrated and tampered with. OPANASec Integrity Monitoring continuously records any changes to SIMATIC S7-300, S7-400 and S7-1500* controllers facilitating forensic troubleshooting. OPANASec can be quickly configured and is easy to use.
