Risk Analysis

As a mandatory crossing point for any security initiative, the Schneider Electric experts use ANSSI's EBIOS risk analysis and security requirements methodology, while adapting it to the industrial environment.


The purpose of this service is to assess the risks you face in the course of the operation of your automation system.

This risk assessment will allow:
• To identify and evaluate all cyber risks vis-à-vis your process
• Define the corrective actions
• Prioritize these actions and define action plans

With respect to your context, the risk assessment will allow you to:
• Decide what action to take or not and justify your choices. Thus, the non-deployment or postponement of deployment of a measure, even if it represents a deviation from your benchmark could be justified by a cost higher than the estimated cost to accept the risk
• Define priorities in the deployment of measures


The methodology used is based on:
• EBIOS methodology (Expressions of Needs and Identification of Security Objectives), Methodology proven in the field and recommended by ANSSI (National Agency for Security Systems of information)
• The Schneider Electric experience and expertise of your business and the technologies implemented in the automation systems.

Compliance audit of industrial networks and SCADA

How do you know the level of security of the configurations deployed on the industrial equipments? By performing a compliance audit service by reference to the selected reference framework (ANSSI, IEC62443, to name a few).

Automation part

Configuration audit
Analysis of the programs with a detailed study of the inter-PLC communications, reconstitution of the mapping of the flows exchanged on the industrial network, analysis of the processor load and quantification of reservations, recommendations to reduce communication resources and thus avoid connection errors and disturbances on the industrial network.

Security audit
Analysis of the implementation of Cybersecurity functions available in the PLC range concerned, recommendations of the functions to be implemented, analysis of the exposure to the vulnerabilities discovered and proposal for a corrective action plan.

Industrial network part

SNi40 Industrial Firewall

As an industrial firewall qualified by the ANSSI, the SNi40 is the solution chosen by Schneider Electric to secure the IT / OT interconnections. Adapted to industrial constraints, this high-performance firewall can also be positioned as close as possible to PLCs.

The SNi40 Firewall for Industrial Ethernet Networks is a security device designed to protect industrial networks, automation systems, SCADA systems and processes against attacks external cyber attacks.

The SNi40 Firewall provides custom protection for the installed base and new installations requiring increased security and availability. It delineates secure areas within a system global.

The SNi40 firewall includes the following features:
• Application firewall: allows you to create rules that identify which devices are allowed to communicate using the TCP-Modbus protocol and manages the filtering of Modbus and UMAS requests
• Router: Routes packets from one network interface to another
• Bridge mode (transparent)
• VPN: Secure management of flows (IPSEC, SSL)
• Event Logging: Maintains a log file of security events and allows local access or remote to this newspaper
• High availability in redundant architecture
• Authentication management

Industrial Privileged Access Management (i-PAM)

Do you want to control your remote access and trace all the operations performed on your industrial system? The i-PAM solution is what you need! The i-PAM offer protects privileged accounts of SCIs and SCADA systems and traces access between Command Control Systems, IT environments, the Internet and remote users. Based on WALLIX Bastion technology, the i-PAM offering is available in industrial appliances that have resistance to heat, vibrations or water.

i-PAM makes it possible to:
• Optimize configuration with auto-discovery of all privileged accounts Windows and Linux
• Control and protect access to equipment, PLCs and fieldbuses:
management of identifiers, connection agreement on certain equipment and according to certain frequencies
• Apply a granular policy of connecting internal and external users
• Secure and manage the automatic rotation of passwords and SSH keys, in especially those of remote users with the SCI
• Isolate critical systems by controlling access to rebound servers
• Alert real-time IT department, technology managers operational team and the security team to detect, respond automatically and halt the progression of an ongoing attack, thereby minimizing disturbances and possible damage to the business
• Trace and save connections, benefit from a real-time audit and reportings complete
