Secure key management for connected manufacturing

Public key infrastructures are fundamental to cybersecurity, facilitating the seamless integration of devices, machinery and products. This holds true across various domains, including industrial environments for process digitisation (Industry 4.0) and the development of future connected transportation solutions.

Partnering with achelos for consulting services grants you access to a comprehensive suite of solutions for implementing new or transitioning existing public key infrastructures. From initial system planning to deployment and secure operation, we guarantee a smooth transition process. We meticulously tailor the PKI solution to your application-specific requirements, standards and certifications, including ISO 27001 or IEC 62443, while incorporating your invaluable input throughout the development process.

From planning to secure operation

Beyond consulting, we offer end-to-end supply of the entire public key infrastructure. As an independent provider, we collaborate with trusted manufacturers of PKI products.

This approach guarantees the delivery of a solution customised to your specific needs, comprising consultancy, software and hardware components. Moreover, we provide German-language support, with the option for on-site assistance at your location.
