Data, data sharing, and data-driven automation lie at the heart of the digital transformation of industry. By enabling and controlling data sharing across multiple processes, locations and ecosystem participants, from the edge to the cloud, industrial companies can transform how they use their data with opportunities for new optimization, revenue and customer value creation.
Xage’s Dynamic Data Security enables end-to-end security across the entire data platform, from physical machines through edge analytics to shared cloud-based data lakes. Multiple participants and their applications can both access and publish data securely, enabling them to work together without losing control or exposing themselves to cyber risk.
The Dynamic Data Security system digitally hashes, signs and encrypts operational data at source, committing the resulting security information to the Xage Fabric. The Fabric protects and replicates the security information to ensure that the underlying operational data can be published or consumed anywhere as needed, with its authenticity, integrity and confidentiality protected by the Fabric. Additionally, Xage’s XEP protects data as it travels from system to system, automatically and dynamically establishing a XEP-to-XEP encryption tunnel or relay when data, such as Modbus information from a PLC, is being transmitted.
Xage’s Dynamic Data Security empowers businesses to transform the ways they operate internally, work with partners and suppliers, and serve their customers. It supports applications from transactive energy (TE/DER) through custody transfer tracking to advanced supply chain cooperation.
A revolution known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or Industry 4.0 is underway. Industrial companies are deploying intelligent systems composed of devices and software applications that cooperate with each other and with humans in real-time. These systems can contain new devices with robust security controls as well as currently installed devices, e.g., PLCs, RTUs, HMIs, meters, and sensors, that provide limited and varied security capabilities. Furthermore, as operations and enterprises are embracing data-driven automation, data and interactions need to be protected edge-to-edge, to cloud, and across the ecosystem.
