Webinar: Exposing Cybersecurity Total Cost of Ownership

  • Webinar

This presentation shares a unique definition and perspective on Cybersecurity TCO (total cost of ownership). We will expose the unexpected costs of loss with a cyber incident, as well as both the cost savings and value-add to the organization by investing in cybersecurity early.

Data Protection Best Practices

  • White Paper

Protecting sensitive data created, stored and consumed by sensor-driven Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology and applications is one of the foundations of trustworthy IIoT systems.

Wireless sensor networks (WSN), low power wide area networks (LPWAN) and cloud-based platforms are driving growth for the industrial Internet of Things (IoT)

The Trillion-Dollar Question for Advanced Industries: How to extract full value from technology?

  • White Paper

As data, connectivity, and processing power expand, so do opportunities for industrial companies to extract value through innovative products, services, and business models. This McKinsey study delves further into how technology delivers value to today's industry.

What's the Use of the IIoT?

  • White Paper

The IIoT connects devices with the digital world to provide data visibility. But the real value of the IIoT lies in how that data will be used by industry to realize the potential beneļ¬ ts of this connectivity.

A Case for an Internet Code of Conduct

  • White Paper

Self-regulation or legislation does not stifle innovation at all. It steers the internet in the right direction. It is just an example, albeit a very important example, of market feedback for engineers and innovators to develop the right products.

Extending Connectivity to the Bottom of the Ocean

  • White Paper

If you have a ControlLogix PLC being used as the MCS, how can you make use of the OPC UA MDIS spec and bypass the old Modbus integration to the DCS? Softing has developed an OPC UA MDIS compliant server module that inserts into the ControlLogix chassis and creates the OPC UA provides a framework that can be used to represent field devices, for example. 

Bridging the IT/OT Divide

  • White Paper

Today’s smarter edge devices can streamline integration efforts while providing secure remote access for end users and machine builders, too

A Guide to Customized PROFINET Validation

  • White Paper

While serial bus systems will continue to play an important role in the future, solutions based on Industrial Ethernet are becoming increasingly common with Industry 4.0 applications. The focus is less on cable measurements, signal levels or signal shapes, but in the case of standards such as PROFINET, utilization and the greatest possible availability of the networks are the focus of interest.
