IT security is always considered the unloved nuisance when it comes to the rapid introduction of innovations in a company. The enthusiasm for a new online service is great, but then comes the IT security department and puts the brakes on the euphoria. It seems to be easier to ignore this annoying minor matter, or to integrate it only marginally. But this impression is wrong and has its dangers. The Swiss experts at Airlock and their partners vehemently oppose the old misconception that IT security comes at the expense of innovation.

Trust is good – Anonymizing is better

Press Article (German)

03 June 2020
Cars in the 21st century have long since mutated into rolling computers. Hundreds of sensors do their job, often unnoticed or, for example, as welcome helpers for drivers by means of assistance systems, but in any case networked – inside and outside. As the development of automated driving continues, the number of such systems is increasing all the time. It is obvious that they are generating a never-ending flood of data, which arouses the desire of insurers and car manufacturers, for example, but also of unwelcome snoopers.

Production Data Secure in the Cloud – Ecrypt IIoT Data via Gateway

Press Article (German)

18 March 2020
Encryption is still a solid foundation to protect the outgoing data of an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) application from unwanted access. Current gateways provide functions to implement this encryption quite conveniently and automatically. Where production used to be seen as an island within the company, many production machines are now connected to the Internet. This means that they can theoretically be accessed from anywhere in the world. This offers advantages, but on the other hand, entrepreneurs no longer have to protect their production against physical damage alone.

It is therefore forbidden to use data for purposes for which it was not originally collected. Violations can result in high penalties.

The Best of both Worlds: Will 2020 be the Year of the secure Cloud?

Press Article (German)

04 February 2020
According to many forecasts, the cloud will continue to “boom” in 2020. But how can cloud use be reconciled with data control, compliance with global legislation, data residence and directors’ liability?
