You can’t let cyber threats stop production, nor can you stop production to deploy traditional security tools to mitigate the threats.

Unfortunately, “security through obscurity” is no longer an option, and these 3 numbers will help illustrate why:

According to Frost and Sullivan, 80% of manufacturing companies around the globe will have adopted IIoT by 2021. The benefits of this connectivity are overshadowed by the challenges of securing OT on the floor and interconnectivity to the IT network, both of which have increased your attack surface and increased risk to production and corporate data. 2017 saw a 120% increase over 2016, totaling more than 14,500 new vulnerabilities. You simply can’t patch fast enough to keep up, and since you can’t take systems out of production, it’s a losing battle, one that is leaving your organization, your production operations, proprietary data and company revenue at risk.

According to Oden Technologies, every factory loses up to 20% of its productivity resulting from downtime due to computer crashes, device breakdowns and programs needing critical patch updates. Downtime, resulting in lost production and revenue, is not an option. As a result, systems go unpatched, creating additional cybersecurity risks that can impact both OT and IT environments, putting the entire company in jeopardy.

Last year, 39% of all ransomware attacks targeted manufacturing companies. Ransomware has become a major problem for manufacturers. We’ve all read about recent high-profile attacks, such as the WannaCry and Petya epidemics which impacted businesses in more than 150 countries and affected critical infrastructure. Of concern was the malware’s ability to spread quickly, forcing manufacturers like you to realize the cybercrime threat is real and can’t be ignored. IT security teams need visibility into the threat posture across the entire enterprise, from the plant floor to the back office.

Now you can implement robust, kernel-based threat prevention that:

  • Requires less than 1% CPU utilization on critical systems without the need for system rebooting or downtime,
  • Protects against file, file-less, known and unknown threats in memory, at run-time when applications are most vulnerable without pre-existing threat or vulnerability knowledge,
  • Requires no signature updates, behavioral/AI algorithms, or external connections,
  • Prevents zero-day attacks without the need for emergency patching,
  • Provides deep forensics data for Incident Response, and
  • Gives you complete visibility across all operating systems and their related applications on protected systems
