Smart Factory technologies are transforming today’s manufacturing sector. The fourth Industrial Revolution is here due to the unprecedented adoption of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies such as robots, robotics, and smart assembly lines. This IIoT revolution is increasing productivity, plant safety, and reducing variable costs. The appeal of IIoT adoption is undeniable – as is increased risk to cyber attack. To safely harness IIoT’s potential, organizations must make the plant floor and its IIoT devices secure.

Secure Wi-Fi

WatchGuard access points have built-in Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), extending and enhancing the security to your facilities’ wireless IoT devices. Leveraging patented Marker Packet technology, WatchGuard provides the most reliable WIPS in the industry, and with the lowest rate of false positives.

IIoT Segmentation

GBS will partition your network into segments (IIoT, Guest Wi-Fi, Corporate, etc.) helping to isolate IIoT devices from mainstream equipment. This segmentation limits the disruptive spread of an attack, should one occur.

Multi-Factor Authentication

WatchGuard’s AuthPoint goes beyond traditional 2-factor authentication (2FA) by considering innovative ways to positively identify users looking to access the network, and Watchguard’s large ecosystem of 3rd party integrations means that you can use MFA to not only protect access to the network, but also VPNs and Cloud applications.

Data Loss Prevention

Included with every Total Security Suite subscription, WatchGuard’s DLP (Data Loss Prevention) is a comprehensive service that helps keep your confidential data private. It prevents data breaches and enforces compliance by scanning text and files to detect sensitive information attempting to exit your network. If sensitive information is identified, the connection is blocked or quarantined, and the administrator is notified.

Zero-Touch Firewall Configuration

RapidDeploy is a powerful, Cloud-based deployment and configuration tool that comes standard with WatchGuard Firebox appliances. All you have to do is power up the appliance and connect it to the Internet. The rest can be handled remotely from any location.

Automating Threat Detection and Prevention with AI

Traditional approaches to cyber security typically rely on manual processes and preestablished policies to block attacks – a significant challenge if your IT team is small and already overwhelmed with alerts and false positives. These traditional approaches to cyber security often leave attacks to go unnoticed for months at a time. With sophisticated artificial intelligence, like WatchGuard’s IntelligentAV, APT Blocker, and ThreatSync services – predictive protection saves time, correlates data, makes faster decisions, minimizes human error, and predicts future threat trends.

As a WatchGuard Gold Partner, GBS is certified and highly qualified in the design and deployment of WatchGuard solutions to make manufacturers cyber secure.
