State of the art of industrial technologyTrend Micro continues its drive to secure Industry 4.0 and industrial IoT projects after signing a new agreement with Pro-face by Schneider Electric.Akihiko Omikawa, Executive Vice President of IoT Security at Trend Micro and President of TXOne Networks: "Digital technology is driving a new industrial revolution. But it's also creating new cyber risks. As an innovator in IoT security, Trend Micro has the tools to safeguard growth of critical business. Our partnership with Pro-face by Schneider Electric will put these tools in the hands of even more asset owners to help protect critical control system environments from exploiting vulnerabilities, connecting with secure operation."Industry 4.0 represents a radical convergence of IT and OT technologies to drive efficiency and cost savings on the shop floor.However, it also exposes critical manufacturing systems to the risk of compromise.Software vulnerabilities affecting human-machine interface (HMI) technology are the largest contributors to cyber risk in this area.Nearly 89% of the 2021 CVEs affecting the critical manufacturing sector can be used to cause an impact, enabling denial of service, sabotage of production processes, or data theft.Recent Trend Micro research reveals that ICS/OT breaches cost an average of nearly three million dollars per incident.However, in industrial environments, taking critical systems offline for testing and patching can be challenging.As part of Trend Micro's ICS/OT security solutions, Trend Micro EdgeIPS, developed by OT-focused subsidiary TXOne Networks, offers peace of mind to security administrators of industrial systems.This transparent industrial intrusion prevention system offers virtual patching to protect critical assets from known and unknown threats without changing network topology.In doing so, it protects both legacy assets and IoT-driven digital transformation initiatives.The new alliance will make EdgeIPS part of Pro-face's HMI Centric Architecture in order to:• Protect critical HMI systems from vulnerability exploitation • Streamline patch management, saving time and money • Accelerate Industrial IoT (IIoT) projects with confidenceTomoa Ishii, Vice President of HMI Activity at Schneider Electric: "OT and IIoT environments are especially exposed to vulnerability exploitation, as legacy systems gain in connectivity and digital transformation expands the attack surface. Trend Micro offers visibility, control and protection where OT security managers need it most. With this alliance, we help asset owners accelerate their secure industrial transformation."With Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity's new EDR functionality, customers can now gain instant visibility into operational technology (OT) security incidents and execute response actionsABB's new solution helps address this growing threat and more efficiently protect operating assetsWhat trends characterize the digital factory of tomorrow?ConNEXTed!Industrial & Building Digital Congress of HMS Industrial Networks celebrates its second edition on October 19, in digital format to analyze how to optimize industrial communicationsBoth companies will work to solve the challenges of collecting, processing and disseminating/transporting data and information in industrial environments©2022 Industrial Automation, Robotics and Industry 4.0
