How to enable efficient and secure Industrial Control Systems

The factory of the future is digital and networked.  The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are a further optimization of processes and faster production cycles for production companies and critical infrastructures.  Industry 4.0 refers to the current trend of automation and data communication in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and cognitive computing.  The basic principle of Industry 4.0 is that by connecting machines, work pieces and systems; businesses are creating intelligent networks along the entire value chain that can control each other autonomously. In an Industry 4.0 factory, components and systems are able to gain self-awareness and become self-predictive, which will provide management with more insight on the status of the factory.

The State of Industrial Ethernet and Industrial Internet of Things in 2018

on 3/15/18 8:00 AM By | Jerry Dillard | 0 Comments | Industrial Ethernet
Lack of budget, unclear path to ROI, imperfect strategic vision, interoperability problems. These are just a few of the reasons why the shift to Industrial Ethernet has been slow. But while industrial leaders could make do without Industrial Ethernet in the past, it’s becoming increasingly essential. As your competitors invest in machine learning and big data to optimize operations, falling behind on Industrial Ethernet adoption is the last thing you want. But Industrial Ethernet isn’t the only concern, anymore. In addition to Industrial Ethernet advancement, you have to prepare your network for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT/Industry 4.0). Together, Industrial Ethernet and IIoT will help you take advantage of your data to spot inefficiencies faster, support business intelligence efforts, and cut costs in the long run.

Surprise—Copper Cables Still Dominate Industrial Networks

on 2/27/18 8:00 AM By | Jerry Dillard | 0 Comments | Network Infrastructure Industrial Ethernet
We’ve been talking a lot about the security implications of the Industrial Ethernet as traditionally closed networks adapt to demands for improved bandwidth and open connectivity. However, cyber attacks aren’t the only things that can bring an industrial network down—you have to make sure you have the right approach to network connectivity as well. Let’s take a look at why copper cabling is so popular for Industrial Ethernet and how network architects can best approach their connectivity options.

How to Defend Against TRITON Industrial Malware?

on 1/25/18 8:00 AM By | Jerry Dillard | 0 Comments | Hacks and Data Breaches Industrial Ethernet
For all the concerns over Industrial Ethernet and IIoT security in recent years, there aren’t many identified malware families poised to take down critical infrastructure. In fact, since the 2010 Stuxnet attack in Iran, there have only been a handful of unique malware kits in the industrial sector. However, security researchers recently uncovered the latest malware targeting critical infrastructure—TRITON.
