The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) allows the manufacturing sector to make giant innovative leaps. But if the IIoT is to succeed, cyberattacks and network issues have to be detected in time and blocked consistently.
Until recently, production facilities were connected in isolated networks. Today, control systems and facilities often have to be connected to the Internet. This makes them vulnerable to cybercriminals who exploit open interfaces as loopholes for their attacks. The consequences range from the loss of sensitive company information over sabotage of individual machines to production stoppages. High-performance IT solutions are therefore indispensable.
