The threat of cyber crime within the manufacturing industry has risen significantly. It’s been reported that the odds of a manufacturing company being attacked are about one in three. The abundance of counterfeit goods inundating the market every year – from cars to sophisticated new technologies – demonstrate the threats cyber attacks pose to you.
Even beyond that, you’re burdened with the danger of impediments to your manufacturing operations that a successful cyber attack would cause. It can lead to:
There are several mounting threats as you rely more heavily on technology to automate processes, operate industrial controls and manage supply chains. As the Internet of Things advances to add more endpoints, all of these scenarios represent network vulnerabilities. They produce network blind spots for hackers to exploit in order to gain financial data, intellectual property and customer information – especially if you have limited staff at distributed locations.
Complete network visibility and control can help put a stop to this downward spiral.
You can’t secure what you don’t know is there. Identifying, accurately profiling and monitoring every device touching the network is a critical first step towards protecting your organization and its valuable proprietary information. The Beacon suite helps you by providing complete network visibility and control.
