Bystronic partners with NanoLock to co-develop cyber security solutions

April 2022

Bystronic and NanoLock enter a partnership to jointly develop software solutions and protect systems against cyber attacks. This is a key building block for Bystronic’s smart factory vision and demonstrates the group’s dedication to pioneering new solutions for the sheet metal processing industry.

Bystronic today announces a partnership with NanoLock Security, a leading device-level cyber security provider, to co-develop state-of-the-art solutions for its sheet and tube metal cutting, bending and automation systems. Over the past years, Bystronic has successfully developed its own Smart Factory Software Suite together with the recently acquired company Kurago. The Smart Factory Software Suite digitizes all business processes and interconnects machines with all other customer processes.

“With the new partnership, we ensure peace of mind for our customers by covering all aspects for our customers’ smart factories."

Cyber secure solutions

To mitigate exposure of customer systems to potential cyber risks at these interconnections, Bystronic and NanoLock are developing new secure solutions to ensure that Bystronic smart machines are trustable data sources and also cyber secure devices. NanoLock is a well-established, experienced provider for Zero Trust, device level cyber security solutions. The two companies will present their joint solution later this year at EuroBlech 2022.

Peace of mind for our customers

Alberto Martínez, Chief Digital Officer at Bystronic says: “Our vision regarding the factory of the future is to give our customers the capability to manage their entire material and data flow. In the future, customers will connect their systems as devices to the cloud and for that reason, cyber security is of utmost importance. With the new partnership, we ensure peace of mind for our customers by covering all aspects for our customers’ smart factories."

Benchmark for the industry

Eran Fine, co-founder and CEO of NanoLock, adds: "Smart factories must integrate strong machine-level protection against cyber security risks to ensure the operational integrity of their systems. Our machine-level solution brings Zero Trust protection to industrial systems without having any impact on performance. We are proud to work with Bystronic and jointly develop secure solutions for their smart systems – thereby setting a benchmark for the entire industry."
