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.
