The path to Zero Trust and Passwordless
in Manufacturing Industry


Protecting Manufacturing Companies from Data Theft, IIoT Attacks, and Disruption of Operations

Cyberattacks pose significant risks for factories due to the way these places operate. The manufacturing sector relies heavily upon automation, the Industrial Internet of Things, machine learning, and global supply chains, which makes it a soft target for cybercriminals.

Every couple of months, news can be heard about a new data breach in a manufacturing company. Sometimes, these are ransomware attacks, which can put production and operations on hold for days or weeks. However, to learn the true scale of the problem, we must realize that most breaches are kept secret.

A great number of manufacturing companies become victims of a data breach through social engineering, phishing, and credential theft. These tactics often result in hackers installing ransomware and compromising the entire organization. Apart from inflicting huge financial costs, such attacks can undermine the brand’s image.

Strong competition among manufacturers encourages them to undergo digital transformation and implement the Industry 4.0 standards. Even though automation and robotics in smart factories speed up the production process, they also create security gaps, increasing the risk of cyberattacks.
