At ULMA Conveyor Components we have adopted a Sarenet solution that improves communications between our IT and OT networks, in addition to incorporating state-of-the-art cybersecurity tools to achieve maximum protection of our infrastructure.

The opening of subsidiaries abroad, the growing transformation towards a much more automated production system, the growth of elements connected to each other and to the outside world via the Internet and, in short, the unstoppable advance towards Industry 4.0; made ULMA Conveyor Components decide to go to industrial cybersecurity experts to protect our communications network with a security structure that will avoid putting the proper functioning of our production plant at risk.

The customized solution implemented was based on the segmentation and segregation of the IT networks of the Business and OT of the production plant, while installing state-of-the-art firewalls capable of filtering communications between both environments. This avoids the risk of possible erratic operation of the automated machines due to any failure or Internet attack or, worse still, forced stops in the production process..
