The VDE Institute tests and certifies your internet of things
Since communication and collaboration between the individual parties takes place digitally via the internet of things (IOT), precautions must be taken here to protect often sensitive data and make it impossible for outside intrusion to take place. Technical standards and norms must also be re-developed, and in both cases, the VDE Institute actively participates. This will allow for continued development, along with the security of Industry 4.0.
To ensure that no device or system poses a hazard to people or the environment, the VDE Institute tests functional safety. Now more than ever and mainly in productions with Industry 4.0, security relies on the proper functionality of the corresponding systems. Malfunctions, along with systematic and random hardware and software errors, can lead to dangerous situations and thereby endanger people, systems and investments. Electric shocks, fire, or (in the worst-case scenario) even explosions are not uncommon here.
