Ewon and NVISO partner to improve IIoT cybersecurity

With the cyber threat landscape constantly evolving, Ewon, a business unit within HMS Networks, has partnered with NVISO, an expert in cybersecurity, to bring the company’s industrial cybersecurity to the next level.

More than ever, it is critical to protect factories from malicious attacks. HMS Networks is currently developing the next-generation Ewon products, which will feature what the company says will be enterprise-grade security protection. A key element in this security initiative is the partnership with cybersecurity expert NVISO, which will help ensure that the Ewon product range prevents, detects and responds strongly to cyber attacks.

Instead of a yearly audit that typically focuses on the same points, HMS decided to set the bar higher by getting challenged on an ongoing basis by experts who are themselves becoming even better with time. Accordingly, NVISO will scrutinise Ewon systems on a regular basis and provide continuous feedback on how to improve. Complementing the ISO 27001 certification that Ewon renews every year, the partnership aims to ensure that Ewon products and services are secured to the highest level at all times for even better protection of remote access to industrial machines.

“Being the leading player on the market with more than 300,000 connected machines comes with a lot of responsibility, and this is something that we do not take lightly,” said Francis Vander Ghinst, General Manager of HMS Networks’ Business Unit Ewon. “It begins with promising and ensuring the security and privacy of our customers’ data and equipment.”
