Manufacturing Cyber Security

Cybersecurity in the age of digital manufacturing and industry 4.0

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is forecast to bring untold value to industrial operations. The IIoT introduces a new network architecture which greatly expands the traditional manufacturing systems paradigm – by increasing the interoperability and optimization of a large number of control systems.

The Unidirectional CloudConnect solves two major challenges that have slowed the adoption of the IIoT and smart factory technology among industrial businesses; interoperability and security. Protection of the industrial site from remote online attacks has been accomplished by providing a safe connection to the cloud. The CloudConnect acts as a translator gateway between the industrial site’s systems and the cloud. It collects data within a SCADA network using the wide variety of connectors, then publishes that data to the cloud using a selected “cloud” protocol.
