Two businesses have teamed up to deliver leading-edge cybersecurity.
Siemens Mobility and RazorSecure have signed a cooperation agreement to provide Rolling Stock operators worldwide with enhanced rail cybersecurity monitoring solutions.
In a statement, Razorsecure said that this would allow the business to combine knowhow in cybersecurity, monitoring and smart digital asset management.
Johannes Emmelheinz, CEO of customer service at Siemens Mobility 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. RazorSecure can help us achieve this goal with their expertise and proven solutions.”
Alex Cowan, CEO of RazorSecure said “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.”
RazorSecure, a business headquartered in Basingstoke, UK, will become part of Siemens Mobility’s partner ecosystem. Called the Alliance for Availability, it aims to solve the complexity challenge 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.
