Cyber Security Lab

The Reply Cyber Security Lab is a demo area where you can understand and test potential IT threats

Because digital advancements require digital security

The rapid adoption of digital technologies is helping to implement new and disruptive business models and processes. However, every change comes with risks – and cyber attacks are one of the biggest risk factors for today's economy. At the Cyber Security Lab, companies have access to the latest security solutions and tools that help to safeguard the values and privacy of people, companies and processes. It includes stations for testing and simulating attack vectors, threat modelling, controller and device hacking on industry-standard hardware and software components.

Visit our Cyber Security Lab and learn about adaptive cloud security, secure software development, security-driven network infrastructures, application and data security as well as security assessments for various use cases to avoid disruption to existing cyber security models as companies adopt agile development, cloud computing and remote working.

Cyber Security Lab demo scenarios

Industrial Security

Industry 4.0 stands for the steadily growing intelligent networking of machines and processes through digitalisation. This makes highly automated production facilities an easy target for cyber attacks. Companies need comprehensive IT security without compromising production performance to benefit from integrated manufacturing systems while minimising the threats.

  • Process Control and Automation in OT

  • Attack Vectors Simulation

  • Security Assessment and Threat Modelling

  • Cyber Security in Manufacturing and OT/ICS

(I)IoT, 5G & Automotive Security

The Internet of Things has become an integral part of our lives. As products become more connected (many of them supported by 5G technology) generating and processing large amounts of data, they become targets for cyber attacks. (I)IoT security, connectivity and secure edge computing technology are therefore becoming increasingly important.



  • Bluetooth, BLE, MQTT, ZigBee, LwM2M

  • ODB2, CAN Bus, ECUs

  • NGX Firewalling, Honeypots, Industry IDS

  • Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDLC)

Smart building Security

In smart buildings, technical systems and components must be connected and processes digitised, to allow, for example, the access for remote operators. On the other hand, the network can get more insecure than originally closed systems: attackers can use the increasing networking and dynamics to penetrate systems, misuse connected devices and cause actual damage.

Reply leverages AI as a Cyber Security Solution

Effectively combating cyber threats requires talent as well as new technologies like AI. The use of AI helps to reliably protect data. Applications range from detecting anomalies or malicious entities, to implementing security information and event management systems (SIEM) and anti-virus products, to use in incident response or anti-spam. AI also supports continuous testing and usefully complements the manual pretesting that is necessary in the new agile world.

AI helps solve problems through streamlining and automation. Security experts are able to use AI to deploy resources more effectively and efficiently. In addition, predictions are possible to establish predictive security. AI is crucial to score efficiently against malware. These tools are getting better and better and relieve the burden on staff who can devote themselves to complex tasks and should therefore be included in any security strategy.
