“Closing the manufacturing feedback loop to enhance quality and productivity is an integral part of our solutions strategy,” said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén in a statement. “Combining FTI’s CAE [computer-aided engineer- ing] technologies and knowledge of automotive sheetmetal applications with our CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) and metrology solutions will enable us to deliver substantial productivity gains to our automotive customers.” The deal is fully consolidated, and Hexagon said it would have no significant impact on the company’s earnings.


Openings


Siemens AG (Munich and Berlin) announced March 17 that it has opened Cyber Security Operation Centers (CSOC) for the protection of industrial facilities, with a joint loca- tion in Lisbon and Munich and one in Milford, OH. Siemens industrial security specialists based at these sites monitor industrial facilities all around the world for cyber threats, warn companies in the event of security incidents and coordinate proactive countermeasures. These protective measures are part of Siemens’ extensive Plant Security Services with which the enterprise supports companies in the manufacturing and processing industry in encountering constantly changing security threats and increasing plant availability. The increased networking of industrial infrastructures, with the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, calls for appropriate protective action for the automation environment, the company said. Siemens Plant Security Services will offer services ranging


from Security Assessments and the installation of protective measures, such as firewalls and virus protection (Security Implementation), through to the continuous surveillance of plants with the Managed Security Services, which is now of- fered by the CSOCs themselves. If the Siemens experts de- tect an increased risk, they give the customer an early warn- ing, issue recommendations for proactive countermeasures and coordinate their implementation. Countermeasures are based on the criticality of the incident and the likely impact on the customer’s business. They include modifying firewall rules or providing updates for closing gaps in security.
