[WEBINAR] The Modern Air-Gap for Manufacturing

2022-11-30 @ 18:00 19:00 UTC+0

Watch the Recording

The frequency and severity of cyber attacks has accelerated at an unprecedented rate and Manufacturing organisations are getting caught in the crosshairs. Whether the threat actors are state-sponsored or a ransomware gang, there is a very real cyber risk affecting critical systems and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) across North America. Manufacturing businesses need a better way to protect their resources and enable secure remote access. They need a Modern Air-Gap.

We’ll be live on November 30, at 1:00PM ET to discuss cybersecurity in the modern threat environment and how manufacturing organisations can enhance security without compromising on business critical remote access to their manufacturing systems through a modern air-gap. You’ll learn how this can all be achieved without a VPN, new hardware, client, or network changes.

Topics We’ll Address

→ How the VPN is compromising your OT Network.
→ How to micro-segment down to the device level.
→ How to control Vendor Access without adding Management Overhead.
→ How to provide just-in-time access with a perfect audit trail.
→ How to make your systems accessible without being visible on the public internet.
→ How to ensure uptime without a VPN or TeamViewer.

Secure Access to Manufacturing Systems with Zero Trust

Remote Access is getting harder to manage for Manufacturers. Uptime and instant access are necessary to keep things running smoothly, but an outage from a cyber attack negatively impacts revenue, reputation, and even safety. Traditional solutions like a VPN or other remote access software (TeamViewer, LogMeIn) are of particular concern due to common threat vectors such as lateral network traversal, publicly accessible resources, over-privileged access, and shared credentials.

How can organisations safely enable remote access for maintenance and support of operational technology resources?

Manufacturing organisations are using the modern air-gap today to ensure critical systems are accessible to authorised users without being visible on the public internet. A modern air-gap allows you to micro-segment down to the device level and keep resources secure by pairing users with only the systems they need to access.

Learn how a systems integrator is using Agilicus to securely connect with over 100 critical infrastructure sites to securely perform support and maintenance without a VPN.

Join us November 30 and learn how the Modern Air-Gap is reshaping the way manufacturing companies enable secure connectivity to their industrial control systems, HMI applications, PCs on the factory floor, and even Building Automation and Control Systems. With a foundation in Zero Trust, the Modern Air-Gap has helped our Manufacturing customers overcome remote access and security challenges for their connected workers and third party providers. This has allowed them to drive performance and operational efficiency higher, reduce facility and resource downtime, and eliminate unnecessary travel costs.
