Because security is not a physical parameter but rather a “moving target”, the measures against cyber threats must be updated constantly. The responsibility for this primarily lies with plant operators, for whom data security also means protection of their investment. As a general rule of thumb, all devices that have an Ethernet connection can be considered at risk. http://www.pilz.com
Our products and services meet the highest quality requirements. That’s why we take security into account even during product development. However, security gaps in software cannot be 100 % avoided, so we take any reports of possible weaknesses very seriously. This is the only way we can keep the very high quality level of our products. The Pilz PSIRT issues security advisories to provide recommendations for action that can be used to remedy weaknesses.
