System integrator, Wunderlich-Malec, signed a partner deal with Bedrock Automation in an effort to deliver cyber secure automation solutions.
“Every day, there are new disclosures about cyber-attacks and vulnerabilities in the digital systems that run our factories and critical infrastructure,” said Mike Norman, vice president operations at Wunderlich-Malec. “Although many companies have strengthened the resiliency of their networks, their control systems continue to utilize outdated technologies that were not designed to protect users against the types of cyber-attacks we are seeing today.”
Bedrock’s control systems combine standards-based control and embedded security with industrial hardness and edge control. Bedrock products focus on mitigating cybersecurity vulnerabilities from the inside out. With over 30 different cyber security technologies intrinsically embedded in every system module, the Bedrock OSA protects against the vulnerabilities and malware affecting all aspects of automation including controllers, power modules, SCADA networks, process sensors, and actuators.
The Bedrock platform is scalable from RTU and mini PLC applications requiring as few as ten I/O to large DCS projects involving thousands of I/O points. Bedrock’s free IEC-61131 system engineering tools give Wunderlich-Malec’s engineers additional flexibility to meet clients’ control and cyber security needs at lower costs.
“Wunderlich-Malec has a keen understanding of the cybersecurity threat and extensive experience in open enterprise integration,” said Bedrock Automation founder and chief executive Albert Rooyakkers.
