The manufacturing sector - in addition to traditional physical asset protection - is facing significant new challenges posed by digitization and process automation, IoT integration and the Covid-19 emergency.

The reference scenario

Manufacturing companies are faced with multiple risk factors, starting with the theft of goods (raw materials, semi-finished and finished products), damage to machinery and buildings, fires and unauthorized access to production and storage units.

The Covid-19 pandemic has accentuated the importance of safety measures in the workplace - a key requirement for increasing production efficiency and creating a safe working environment for employees, visitors and customers - and has accelerated smart-working processes.

Following the important digital transformation that the sector is moving through toward a logic of Industry X.0, the cyber security challenges that the manufacturing sector has to face have increased exponentially:

  • The amount of data generated by IoT devices, shared and processed on the Smart Manufacturing front has grown by leaps and bounds;
  • IoT devices and IT architectures are now inextricably linked;
  • The very perimeter of companies is increasingly broader and less defined, with a consequent physiological increase of vulnerabilities and intrusion by cyber-criminals.

It is therefore essential to protect any logical asset, such as digital data (patents, suppliers and customers’ sensitive data), SCADA systems, interconnections between locations (production, warehouses, etc. ...), to avoid the blocking or slowing down of production activities, delays in delivery times and reputational damage.

Axitea supports companies in the manufacturing sector by providing solutions to reduce the risks that undermine their physical and cyber security.

By 2024, 60% of global manufacturing companies will opt for an integrated OT/IT approach to manage Security.

In addition to physical goods and services, Smart Factories will produce an increasing amount of data managed in Edge systems (*): managing operation-related IT risks will become an essential factor to ensure the continuity of business operations and maintain the sector competitive capacity in the new millennium.

(*) Edge computing is a distributed and open IT architecture with decentralized processing power, set up for mobile computing and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.
