IIoT and Industrial Cybersecurity Solutions for Manufacturing

Manufacturing

The Manufacturing sector faces unique challenges in securing operations and ensuring safety in the product process and most typically the products and services it delivers. Heavy and expensive machinery, unique manufacturing processes with intellectual property that spans the product recipe, production process and data relating to quality, quantity, capacity to name only a few. Adding to this the multi-vendor nature of specialized machinery and a complex, yet interconnected supply chain of goods, services and support and the risks to disruption or damage from a cyber incident can have dramatic effects on health and well being of customers and corporate liability and reputation. With the vast number of control systems required to interact and coordinate to successfully produce products, connectivity of devices and systems continues to increase. When control system networks can be monitored, connectivity issues can be more quickly isolated, complex configurations can be validated and data flows can be visualized, all to help reduce cyber risks and help ensure ongoing efficiency and productivity.
