Siemens provides products and solutions with industrial security functions that support the secure operation of plants, solutions, machines, equipment and/or networks.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement (and continuously maintain) a comprehensive, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept.
Customer is responsible for preventing unauthorized access to its plants, systems, machines, and networks. Systems, machines, and components should only be connected to the enterprise network or the Internet if and to the extent necessary and with appropriate security measures (e.g. use of firewalls and network segmentation) in place.
Additionally, Siemens’ guidance on appropriate security measures should be taken into account. You can find more information about Industrial Security at https://www.siemens.com/industrialsecurity.
Siemens’ products and solutions undergo continuous development to make them more secure. Siemens strongly recommends that product updates be applied as soon as they are available and that only the latest product versions be used. Use of product versions that are no longer supported, and failure to apply the latest updates may increase a customer’s exposure to cyber threats.
