Let’s talk about WAGO Group, Radiflow, and their new partnership.

WAGO is a well-renowned international supplier of electrical interconnection and automation-focused technologies, offering a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for industrial settings, automotive, intralogistics, elevators and escalators, lighting, mechanical engineering, railway systems and more. On its mission to “Empower connections!” and become “the backbone of a sustainable and smart-connected world,” WAGO drives towards an everything-innovated future. Simple.

Radiflow is on a mission of its own – to take the muddied guesswork out of OT security, to maximize secure systems (while minimizing risks and optimizing businesses’ resources), and to dedicate without compromise when it comes to securing critical infrastructure. With extensive cyber expertise (especially in the “You can’t protect what you can’t see.” era in which we live and work, Radiflow prioritizes threat and risk management solutions deployable by major industrial enterprises and utilities. Radiflow currently helps to protect more than 8,000 critical facilities worldwide, and its teams capably meet industry-specific needs in order to bring the best ROI and to supply continuous attentive support through its products and services.

So, WAGO in one hand, Radiflow in the other.

As we often say, “Let’s put them together, shall we?”

WAGO Group and Radiflow have entered a strategic partnership to combine their competencies and enhance OT security systems for interconnected environments.

This is good news. Cyber threats continue posing awfully acute threats; they can (and do) disrupt operations and expose vulnerabilities, leading to significant financial and reputational losses.

Thus, WAGO and Radiflow are set to bundle their strengths for additional markets, including smart factory installations, smart buildings, smart energy, and so on.

For instance, by integrating Radiflow’s cybersecurity software into WAGO’s offerings, customers stand to benefit from:

  • Advanced Threat Detection: WAGO Cyber Security Network Sight software is based on iSID from Radiflow and enables real-time monitoring and detection of anomalous network behavior. Continuous monitoring helps teams identify cyber threats early, allowing them to respond as quickly as possible.
  • Increased Security through Network Segmentation: WAGO Cyber Security Analysis (based on Radiflow's CIARA) is an automated risk assessment and management platform for companies from the industrial, energy and building sectors. Based on the analysis results, users can implement robust network segmentation strategies and significantly minimize the risk of unauthorized access.
  • Inventory and Risk Assessment: WAGO Cyber Security Analysis is used to create a resource management tailored to the customer and to perform a risk assessment. This allows an up-to-date inventory of the OT measures implemented, proactively identify vulnerabilities and measure the effectiveness of risk reduction strategies.

"At WAGO,” stated Thomas Burklé, Vice President of Automation Sales and Industry Management, EMEA, “we are convinced that protecting digital and electrical systems goes beyond physical components – it requires a truly comprehensive approach to modern cybersecurity. We want to help our customers effectively protect their systems from ever-new cyber threats, and we can do this better alongside Radiflow.”

David Moss, Vice President of Sales at Radiflow, is very much in agreement.

“This partnership with WAGO leverages our shared strengths to provide robust, safe and efficient solutions for industrial automation and cybersecurity requirements. Radiflow’s expertise in OT cybersecurity complements WAGO’s product portfolio in all target markets, benefiting customers seeking integrated solutions.”
