Cybersecurity specialist RazorSecure has signed an agreement with Siemens Mobility to provide global rolling stock operators with enhanced rail cybersecurity monitoring solutions.
This agreement means that the two businesses can pool their knowhow to secure complex transport systems.
RazorSecure is a specialist in providing rail cybersecurity solutions and continuously monitors the behaviour of individual systems and traffic across the full network in real-time. Siemens Mobility is known for smart digital asset management systems such as Railigent.
CEO of customer service at Siemens Mobility, Johannes Emmelheinz, said: “Real-time monitoring and the earliest possible detection of irregularities in the IT and software structure of our trains are the only way to ensure 100 percent fleet availability while maintaining the highest level of cybersecurity.”
Headquartered in Basingstoke, RazorSecure will become part of Siemens Mobility’s partner ecosystem. The latter’s Alliance for Availability aims to solve complexity through collaboration and brings together diverse service-related processes, technologies, and expertise in an open ecosystem to combine the strength of the rail industry, suppliers, operators, partners and universities. As part of the Alliance for Availability, Siemens Mobility is currently working with 22 global partners.
RazorSecure chief executive Alex Cowan added: “The rail industry needs innovative solutions that are designed specifically for its unique challenges.
“By partnering with Siemens Mobility, we are able to collaborate and build on our product portfolio with the rail cybersecurity expertise, to offer the best comprehensive solutions that enhance the protection of rolling stock.”
