For manufacturers, every new connection point is an opportunity. And a risk. To prevent issues, OT needs to take ownership of cybersecurity. But IT holds the keys and expertise.
To help arm companies against the threats, Automation.com has worked with the IoT experts at Cisco to provide you the latest edition of our Cybersecurity eBook, filled with detailed reads on the latest strategies and technologies to keep your industrial networks secured, and your company one step ahead of the hackers.
The prevailing trend in Industrial Automation and Control System (IACS) networking is the convergence of technology, specifically IACS operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT).
The distinctions between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) in manufacturing are fading as smart devices and software-controlled systems drive more production lines.
Cisco Webex for the RealWear HMT-1 allows a remote worker to connect with remote experts when they need assistance. Experts can share their views and interact with work instructions, capture still images, and push documents. You no longer need to wait for the expert in person to start solving problems.
For decades, manufacturing businesses have relied on connected machines and the correlating data to help streamline operations. Now, innovative Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are taking machine data to unprecedented new levels – but also introducing a whole new landscape of challenges in data management, analysis and governance.
Get the most business value from your factory data. Amplify operational and business insights you need to boost overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), optimize energy use, and reduce downtime.
The Network. Intuitive.
Imagine a network that offers visibility into production and inventory, creating context around everything that happens within the enterprise.
A network that understands business intent and dynamically safeguards new IoT initiatives while helping IT and operations teams collaborate.
It constantly monitors facilities, machines, and connected devices to identify and contain suspicious activity no matter where it hides.
The new network works tirelessly to unlock data from machines, sensors, and the network itself, turning info into insights that maximize productivity, improve quality, and prevent downtime.
An automated network helps you keep pace with customer and market needs, ensuring continuous high-performance IT and OT services and increasing agility while lowering operational costs.
The new network is always searching for threats within your facilities and enterprise, even in encrypted traffic. Protect your IoT devices, production data, and intellectual property with an intelligent network.
