Novotek distributing Versiondog configuration management tools

Novotek UK and Ireland has been awarded licensing rights for Auvesy, which is described as a global market leader for data management systems. As one of only two UK distributors, Novotek will be offering companies the chance to implement Auvesy's Versiondog system, which has been developed specifically for configuration management and data management in industrial automation.


The Versiondog software equips users with comprehensive support for centralised data management and device backup. Its change management software safeguards programs and data and can be used for data recovery. It compares functions to monitor data, track and store changes. The synchronisation of plant systems and Versiondog software allows for company-wide visibility, greater control and adherence to technical standards.

This software helps plant managers to save time and money, ensure consistent quality and quickly modify production processes for product variations. These are important considerations in volatile markets.

George Walker, managing director of Novotek UK and Ireland, explains: "Versiondog will complement our strong portfolio of automation software. The software has been incredibly popular with Novotek customers, so it made sense to expand its reach to distribute in the UK and Ireland markets. It can be integrated for use with PLCs, CNCs, SCADAs, HMIs, robots and field devices, so Novotek can provide a fully integrated solution.

"The importance of cybersecurity should not be overlooked by businesses. Versiondog detects unauthorised changes to running control programs, rapidly finds the right data for disaster recovery and replaces corrupted programs. Companies are increasingly shifting to higher levels of automation, making it even more important to coordinate all elements involved in the process."

Cyber security is often thought of as a concern for business IT systems rather than operational technology. However, industrial businesses must also have effective cybersecurity or they risk putting their whole plant or production line in jeopardy. An increased amount of data increases vulnerabilities, so implementing protective technologies like Versiondog diminishes the risk of disaster.

Versiondog can identify changes - whether they are due to human error, equipment failure or cyberattacks - and can take action to protect against downtime or loss of data. Using a change management system to detect unauthorised changes makes a useful addition to any broader cybersecurity strategy.
