Secure Industry 4.0 – Smart Manufacturing and Just-In-Time Supply Chain Models
asvin BeeHive IoT patch management for continuous and secure IIoT in production
The scaling of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) presents both enormous opportunities and a myriad of challenges. Among the challenges related to smart manufacturing and smart production are organising remote maintenance for IIoT assets with the proviso of continuous production and the reliable functionality of smart assets and the cyber safekeeping of systems.
Remote Maintenance of Industrial IoT Assets
Up-to-date software is the absolute linchpin of today’s complex industrial manufacturing systems. Optimal production cycles rely upon IoT sensors and other connected digital industrial assets, and with just-in-time supply chain models, it is critical to avoid downtimes and expensive onsite maintenance. Software and security updates must cascade during precisely-defined windows of production suspension.
Cybersecurity during Lifecycle
Industrial hardware is built to guarantee uninterrupted operation over extended periods of time, whereas the software running these assets is subject to continuous updating. Industry 4.0 assets are vulnerable to cyberattack and that risk must be alleviated.
Avoiding downtimes in production caused by cyber attacks.
Risk Management and Monitoring of IIoT Operations
Whether the vulnerability is identifying a changing behaviour of devices indicating operational problems, preventing a cyberattack, or losing overview control of smart industry firmware and software assets, all of these are risks that must be contained.
Optimizing IIoT Operational Costs
The failure to launch digital transformation initiatives is negatively impacting the resiliency and revenues of many industries. And while the total cost of ownership for IIoT operations is not easily calculated one thing is certain software is outdated faster than hardware and mitigating high onsite maintenance costs is essential.
