RTS hypervisor tech provider acquires Arendar IT-Security to expand edge offerings

Real-Time Systems, a hypervisor technology provider, has acquired Arendar IT-Security GmbH to provide edge computing services for secure OT/IT connectivity and enable the digitization of industrial machines, plants and processes. RTS says the acquisition expands its service portfolio and allows it to provide solution-oriented offerings for OEMs and end users.

The company also says the acquisition is part of its strategic positioning in the industrial automation and communications infrastructure market, focusing on expanding RTS’ IoT connectivity expertise. This technology includes edge and cloud middleware and software engineering services to support the digitalization of industrial processes within systems and plants. Primarily servicing manufacturing companies in Germany, Real-Time Systems now seeks to expand the Arendar offering to OEMs worldwide.

RTS, an Intel Co-Development Partner founded in 2006, provides RTS Hypervisor – a real-time hypervisor and RTS Safe Hypervisor – a hypervisor that addresses functional safety and cybersecurity on x86 hardware architecture.

Daniel Jürgens, the managing director of the Congatec Group, said: “Together with the hypervisor technology of our subsidiary Real Time Systems, we are now in a position to support our customers’ digital transformation with sustainable solution modules bearing the trustworthy ‘Made in Germany’ seal.”

Meanwhile, Arendar IT-Security GmbH, a Wittlich-based subsidiary of Arend, was established in 2019. The company says it specializes in Arendar, a portfolio of hardware and middleware that offers digitization, IT/OT/Cloud connectivity and data collection solutions to transform industrial processes inside systems and plants.

Arendar says its portfolio provides solutions secured against IP theft or sabotage with cybersecurity for:

  • Reading data from PLCs, fieldbuses and sensors
  • Creating added value from OT through horizontal IoT integration of multiple devices, machines and plants in collaborative clouds
  • Connecting business IT with OT

Other use cases include remote control and maintenance of systems and plant visualization in the cloud.

“We particularly wish to expand our IoT connectivity expertise because of the ever-increasing cybersecurity requirements,” added Jürgens.

The newly acquired solution portfolio will be showcased for the first time at embedded world 2023
