With the cyber threat landscape constantly evolving, Ewon, a business unit within HMS Networks and the global leader in industrial remote connectivity, has partnered with NVISO, an expert in cybersecurity, to bring 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 market-leading, entreprise-grade security protection. A key element in this security initiative is the partnership with cybersecurity expert NVISO who will help ensuring that the Ewon offering prevents, detects and responds strongly to cyberattacks.
How the partnership works
Instead of a yearly audit which typically focuses on the same points, HMS decided to put the bar higher by getting challenged on an ongoing basis by experts who are themselves becoming even better with time. Accordingly, NVISO will scrutinize 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 will 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. It begins with promising and ensuring the security and privacy of our customers’ data and equipment.”, says Francis Vander Ghinst, General Manager of HMS Networks’ Business Unit Ewon,

To help customers maximize the power of their data, Ewon products has established a comprehensive and global ecosystem of more than 2000 experienced partners, ready to quickly create efficient and integrated solutions based upon customer needs.
