Prevent successful cyberattacks from affecting plant operations

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.


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.


Security Reference Blueprint for ICS

Using this blueprint will enable manufacturers to maintain or improve facility operations while maintaining the availability of the plant network and protecting plant processes.


Prevent cyberattacks from affecting plant uptime and IP

Stop advanced exploits and malware

Prevent sophisticated unknown malware, such as OT-specific malware and ransomware, using tightly-integrated network and endpoint security technologies.
