Platform Solution Secure Appliance


Indsutrial Security Features

  • Tamper Protection: The appliance detects unauthorized access to device electronics and tampering activity.
  • Remote AAA Infrastructure: Use your company’s authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) infrastructure to control access to appliances and their resources – even when offline.
  • Encrypted communication: Data in transit is encrypted using state-of-the-art technology and protocols.
  • Secure storage: Data at rest is always encrypted to provide a safe haven for your data.
  • High Assurance Boot: To prevent tampering, the device only executes signed and certified software.
  • Secure multi-channel network access: Access to local networks or the internet is provided through different channels (Landline, LTE, UMTS etc.), subject to availability.
  • Location control: The device can only be operated at the intended location, preventing unauthorized transport and abuse.
  • Remote access and configuration: The secure appliance can be monitored and configured from your headquarters, regardless of its location.

Customer-specific modular design

Hardware Modules

The use of different hardware modules allows the adaptation of the secure appliance to the particular intended purpose. The communication capacity of the system can be modularly broadened, for example, to cover such different channels as Wi-Fi, mobile or satellite communication.

In scenarios where a system is physically accessible by third parties it is necessary to prevent unauthorised manipulation. Accordingly, the installation of suitable protective measures as components is available.

Software Modules

As with the hardware the Secure Appliances provide a modular software architecture. Different communication and security components can be applied depending on the intended purpose. These facilitate for example encrypted data transmission, fine granular control of application and service authorisation or an audit of device location. Ensuring the tamper protection of the software is a key element.

Connectors to enterprise platforms

Data collection and transmission is only meaningful if those data are subsequently processed and profitably applied. The Secure Appliance supports the most diverse application scenarios by means of connectors to different platforms, visualisations and evaluation applications. Furthermore, data pre-processing functions can be made available on the Secure Appliance.

Connectors to industrial interfaces

Integration of industrial interfaces has been a core competence of Janz Tec AG since its inception. Machinery, equipment and vehicles can be connected over standardised interfaces like CAN, CANopen RS232/485 or OPC UA without difficulty.
