Manufacturing & Industrial

How Secure is Your IoT?

The use of IoT in manufacturing and industrial plants and factories is booming. But Industrial IoT (IIoT) is vulnerable to cyber attacks, which can lead to a loss of proprietary data, production downtimes, and a breach into the corporate network.

The Rise of IoT in Manufacturing

As IIoT continues to grow, the potential impacts may become broader and more significant. Yet many manufacturers are not prepared: A study from Deloitte and MAPI found that one-third of manufacturers have never performed any cyber risk assessments of the Industrial Control Systems (ICS) operating on their factory floors. Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) plan and control production in real time, enhancing efficiency, manufacturing flexibility, and asset utilization. Yet connecting machines and other assets to communicate across a common infrastructure–the first step to digitization–can also lead to network breaches. According to a recent PwC study, 91% of respondents are investing in digital factories, and 98% expect to increase efficiencies with integrated MES, predictive maintenance, or augmented reality solutions. Yet only 10% believe that these types of solutions offer as much reward as risk.

Gain Visibility into IoT Devices

IoT devices simply aren’t visible to the average cybersecurity solution. As a result, attackers leverage this vulnerability to operate undetected across the network. In order for manufacturers and industrial enterprises to mitigate the risks created by IoT devices, you need the ability to:

  • Detect and identify 100% of the devices on your network, across all of your segments
  • Gain visibility down to the firmware level for unmanaged devices, including SCADA systems and other operational technology
  • Explore tailored intelligence about the devices on your network
  • Generate risk reports and monitor alerts to support continuous risk management
