Control systems targeted by hackers

Cyberattacks on businesses continue to rise. Telekom's Security Operations Center (SOC) keeps an eye on several million attacks on companies every day. In an emergency, the security experts intervene. Until now, the main targets have been the corporate network and IT.

One third of industrial machines use insecure software

Disguised hacker reaches out to industrial machines

Machines are long-lived. Their software is difficult to update. That's why around a third use outdated versions of Windows, for example. These no longer receive support. Accordingly, they offer gaps for attackers. At the same time, different teams are often responsible for machines and IT in companies. This makes it difficult to take a comprehensive view of attacks. Now, connected machines are being targeted by hackers. A new Telekom offer provides protection. Magenta Industrial Security spans an umbrella over business control systems.

Direct attacks on systems bring production to a standstill. Hackers continue to steal business-critical data from machines as well as companies' intellectual property. This is what we secure our customers against.
