Security Solutions for the Manufacturing Industry - Attivo Networks

Security Solutions for the Manufacturing Industry

Prevent and defend against threats targeting Operational Technology environments.

Overview

Cyber threats are on the rise in critical infrastructure businesses such as manufacturing, factories, and plant operations. NTT’s 2021 Global Threat Intelligence Report (GTIR) revealed that the manufacturing industry saw a 300% increase in worldwide cyberattacks in 2020. It is vital that the manufacturing industry adequately defend themselves from ransomware attacks, industrial espionage and state-sponsored attacks.

Manufacturing companies across the board are adopting a defense-in-depth approach to cybersecurity that reduces risk with each effective layer of protection and combines a mix of defensive and offensive measures for maximum protection against breaches.

Early and accurate visibility, lateral movement prevention and detection arm energy companies with a proactive defense, reducing their attack surface, and increasing an attacker’s cost and complexity to effectively derail their effort.

Visibility, Prevention & Detection are Essential For Manufacturing

Use Cases for the Manufacturing Industry

— Detect discovery activity
— Not reliant on signatures to detect attacks
— No pattern matching or database look up

— In-network threat detection
— Detect early reconnaissance
— Detect lateral movement
— Detect activities used to maintain presence

— Continuous visibility to exposures and misconfigurations in Active Directory
— Detect threats and stop attacks in real-time
— Reduce Active Directory attack surface
— Add detection efficiency without needing privileged access or touching production Active Directory

— Decoys can be deployed to mimic production HMIs
— Decoys include deceptive data that further distracts/confuses/redirects
— When decoys are engaged, events and alerts are immediately generated
— Wastes the attacker’s time, keeping them away from critical infrastructure

— Demonstrate in-network detection
— Forensics to demonstrate resolution

— Misdirect attacks away from production data
— DecoyDocs for counterintelligence on attacker intent
— Hide and deny access to sensitive data and storage

— Detects across every attack surface
— User Network
— Data Center
— Cloud (AWS, Azure, Google, OpenStack)
— Specialized: IOT, ICS, POS

SEMICONDUCTOR COMPANY IMPLEMENTS DECEPTION TO STOP MAN-IN-THE-MIDDLE ATTACKS

Protecting Manufacturing IP with Deception Technology

Company

A global semiconductor manufacturer

Situation

The company had experienced a breach by a Chinese “hacker” group that used a Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack to steal credentials that allowed them to access and exfiltrate critical data.

Outcome

Adding the ThreatDefend platform to its suite of security controls fundamentally strengthened the organization’s security posture by adding in real-time detection while improving threat analysis and attack remediation.
