Security is the goal!

To help you get closer to this goal, we have developed IRMA® OT-EVAL, an evaluation concept for the entry into Operational Technology (OT) security. Gain experience and better evaluate your production plant: away from the perceived security – towards the facts, the actual state.

This professional evaluation is achieved by using the IRMA® Security Appliance for independent recording and analysis of assets, devices and their data connections. On the basis of this up-to-date information, our network and OT security specialists work with you to assess possible threats and risks.
