In a world where operational technologies are rapidly advancing, addressing the inevitable cyber security threats is high on the agenda for many industrial organisations.
From initial threat detection to traffic inspection, monitoring and intervention, Astec’s security solutions are designed to meet the demands of industrial communication protocols.
Traditional IT Security & Domain-based integration
Astec provides classic security integration for traditional manufacturing systems, including network security, embedded hardware security and lifecycle management. We can help define, assess and prioritise risk areas, building in secure technologies for effective management of threats. A robust ‘defense in depth’ approach is used for implementations, combining different layers of security without compromising on connectivity or function. Our teams collaborate at every stage to ensure clients maintain complete understanding and control of their cyber security strategy.
Cloud/Industrial Internet OT Security
The benefits of open connectivity and productivity enhancements must be carefully balanced with operational technology (OT) security. As a GE Digital Alliance Partner, Astec can assist you in embedding security at every level, delivering robust solutions with minimum disruption.
- Testing, certifying and securing your connected devices, applications and processes
- Creating an actionable OT mitigation plan
- Vigorously testing and validating industrial devices
- Monitoring Security Environments
In this day and age, not connecting to the internet is like telling someone the only way to avoid getting in a car accident is to not get in a car.
GE’s Field Agent technology is the critical link required in an IIoT chain for cloud-enabled analytics. The hardware devices provide a rugged, pre-configured solution for secure data collection and conveyance from the machine.
