Ensure effective cybersecurity for Industry 4.0

Expand protection, reduce risks in IT/OT operations

Manufacturers around the world trust Palo Alto Networks® to protect the entire manufacturing enterprise, across the plant floor, manufacturing execution systems, corporate IT, IoT and the industrial cloud.

Learn how Toyota Motor Europe consolidated their network security, prevented malware from gaining a foothold, and supported secure mobility for workers.


Enable high uptime and safety

“Industry 4.0” is driving operational efficiencies and profitability in manufacturing, but increased connectivity introduces new vulnerabilities. Attackers have new pathways to exploit, increasing the risk of plant downtime, destruction of equipment and unsafe conditions as well as risks to intellectual property.

Palo Alto Networks prevents successful cyberattacks that can lead to disruption of plant processes and theft of IP. Tight integration within the platform streamlines routine security tasks.
