The market for connected products and devices is booming. For many businesses, it is essential to make the most, whilst guaranteeing the quality of the products they market and full command of all the skills associated with a field that remains unfamiliar to many.

In order to be able to help companies in their transition to an Industry 4.0 production, Sirris decided to set up its own pilot environment of an Industry 4.0 factory: the 4.0 Made Real Pilot Factory. Various innovative technologies will be implemented here and the production can be followed digitally from order to delivery. This thanks to connected machines and IoT.

You still don't really know how IoT can further expand your business and change the way you deliver value to customers? Are you paralysed by the numerous alternatives or the risk associated to the endeavour? Or are you simply searching for a way to give more value to your smart product which is already on the market? Discover or unleash your innovation project with Sirris on 10 December!

Industry 4.0 is built around the exchange of information between machines and higher-level systems. Connected machines and far-reaching digitisation ensure that manufacturing companies can make their production lines more flexible, secure and autonomous. For machine builders, connected machines offer the potential to develop digitally supported services.

A quick look back to ‘IoT Tech Expo Europe 2019’ in Amsterdam.

To ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability in IoT systems, a number of security aspects need to be considered, in order to achieve security and privacy by design. In this second blog of a series we dig deeper in authentication and authorisation for IoT application.

To ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability in IoT systems, a number of security aspects need to be considered, in order to achieve security and privacy by design. In this first white paper of a series which you can download we give an overview with checklist.

The Flemish government is again releasing € 3.5 million for ‘industry 4.0 living labs’. You can also take advantage of this! Network and Information Systems (NIS) security and cybersecurity are necessary for many existing and future services, from industry to government, although much remains to be done. This living lab deals with the practical application of the NIS directives for the security of industrial communication networks via AI.

IoT is a matter for all industry sectors. However, its development requires companies either to acquire their own command or to entrust partners with a vast multilayer system of technologies, each stage of which is governed by a number of standards. Sirris and Agoria are there to help them in this complex environment.

Now that more and more devices are connected to the Internet and to other devices, collecting data, their influence on our safety is increasing and the importance of securing information systems - IoT systems in particular - is growing. Strong, verifiable device identity is therefore crucial, as protection of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information exchanged within an IoT system hinges on it. Establishing and protecting device identity is paramount, hardware plays a vital part in this.
