Innovation Award of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate 2022:
Recognition in the category “Enterprise” for ARENDAR.

We are very happy and would like to explicitly thank the jury for the appreciation of our ARENDAR solution by awarding it the recognition in the category “Enterprise”!

The award was received today in the Chamber of Crafts Koblenz by our Managing Director, Mr. Rudolf Preuß, from the hands of Mrs. Daniela Schmitt, Minister for Economy, Transport, Agriculture and Viticulture of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate on behalf of the entire team.

Jürgen Kreis, responsible for sales, marketing and business development at Arenda IT-Security GmbH, comments:

“We are very grateful for this recognition award. On the one hand, this appreciation reflects the innovative character of our system and its broad applicability. On the other hand, it recognizes the efforts of our dedicated team in developing this unique solution, which provides a highly secure, easy-to-use industrial digitization platform for our customers. In particular, the possibility of very fast and easy integration into existing production processes offers great advantages for our customers, as it allows us to significantly extend the useful life of existing plants and thus also make an important contribution to the careful use of resources while making companies with older industrial plants fit for Industry 4.0.”

About the ARENDAR:

The ARENDAR consists of a combination of hardware and middleware and can be used immediately for the most important applications of Industrie 4.0. These include process optimization, predictive maintenance, remote diagnostics and process and data visualization. Further functionalities are modularly expandable. With ARENDAR, production plants and IT can be fully networked with each other, and data from production can be collected, processed and passed on. At the same time, the strictly data-centric connection of OT and IT provides an important building block for defending against cyberattacks, especially on production equipment.
