Meet cybersecurity requirements and best practice for Industry 4.0 and the IIoT

Connectivity and the IoT is transforming industry processes. From food manufacturers and FMCG plants, to automotive plants and oil refineries, the real time information and control provided by Industrial IoT products brings huge advantages, from greater efficiencies and more flexible production, to lower plant downtime and reduced maintenance costs.

However, the associated risks are huge, from Intellectual Property theft, to malicious attacks disrupting production, and harming brands. In the severe cases, catastrophic plant failure could have fatal results.
