Secure Modern Manufacturer Networks With a Platform Approach
“Industry 4.0” is driving operational efficiencies and profitability in Manufacturing using big data, artificial intelligence and IoT for factory automation and data exchange. This means seamless connectivity of the plant floor to corporate, supplier and partner networks and even industrial clouds. This connectivity introduces new vulnerabilities and pathways for attackers to exploit, increasing risk of plant downtime, destruction of equipment, unsafe conditions, as well as risk to intellectual property.
The Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform prevents successful cyberattacks that can lead to costly and unsafe disruption of plant processes and theft of intellectual property. Tight integration within the platform and with ecosystem partners streamlines routine security tasks. Manufacturers around the world trust Palo Alto Networks to protect the entire manufacturing enterprise across plant floor, manufacturing execution systems (MES), corporate IT, IoT, and industrial cloud.
