Security for connected applications in industry and transport through optimal key management

PKI System Consulting

Security for connected solutions in industry and traffic

Cyber security based on public key infrastructures forms the basis for the intelligent connectivity of devices, machines and products, whether in the industrial environment for the digitalization of processes (Industry 4.0) or in the development of future connected transport and traffic solutions.

As your consulting partner, achelos offers comprehensive services for the development of new public key infrastructures or the migration of existing ones, from system planning to system provision and secure operation. In doing so, we take into account your application-specific requirements and standards as well as your existing processes and certifications, e.g. according to ISO 27001 or IEC 62443, in order to design an optimal, individual PKI solution with you.

Established partner products

In addition to consulting, we provide you with the complete public key infrastructure. As a vendor-independent provider, we work with established manufacturers of PKI products.

This way, you receive a complete solution consisting of consulting, software and hardware which is perfectly tailored to your individual needs. In addition, we offer German-language support, also at your premises.
