Manufacturers need to secure the future of their business:
Disruptions to operations, sabotage, theft of production data and intellectual property or product piracy need to be dealt with. Manufacturers require necessitate a well-thought-through security architecture, including
Utimaco HSMs in combination with solutions from the Utimaco partner network can be used to address today’s manufacturing security challenges.
Devices or attackers impersonating a trusted device or user could conduct a range of illicit activities: man-in-the-middle attacks, tapping into production networks, altering the number, nature or quality of the pieces produced or “only” the data captured by the sensors in the production environment.
Insufficient security of code updates allows hackers to enter software code or steal data from the production line. It can also allow them to take control of manufacturing software, steal or manipulate production or usage data, customer information records or intellectual property. Code signing is an efficient way to prevent this kind of manipulation.
Digital rights management prevents the production of unauthorized units that could be sold on the black market, either with authentic branding or white labeling and thus prevent significant financial and reputational damage.
More and more data is stored in the cloud. Obviously, production data that is stored in the cloud is vulnerable – and of high interest to hackers. Disrupting production processes may be interesting for competitors, insider or amateur hackers. The best way to prevent being hacked is by encrypting data before it is send to the cloud. Keys that are used in these encryption processes should be generated and stored in a tamper-proof HSM – as is mandated for the protection of valuable data like payment transition data in the banking and financial services industry.
Utimaco HSMs are also available as a service – in the cloud, for the cloud.
