Palo Alto Networks / Sentryo

Palo Alto Networks and Sentryo Secure the Industrial Internet

As industrial corporations are migrating towards Industry 4.0 technologies, their production infrastructures are increasingly exposed to cyber threats.

Whether it’s a production line, a power station, an oil platform or a water, gas or electricity distribution network, automation systems are connected to IP networks. Contractors have remote accesses. Windows computers are widely used to run processes. Cybersecurity is a growing concern for control engineers.

Protecting industrial assets such as controllers, stations, servers, I/O modules and sensors requires two very different sets of skills and technologies. You need a perfect understanding of the industrial process to detect malicious behaviors such as the unwanted change of a controller’s parameter or an illegitimate stop order to a robot. You also need IT security platforms to filter network flows, enforce security rules and block attacks.

Palo Alto Networks and Sentryo are bringing the ideal combination of OT and IT security technologies so control engineers and IT security leaders can work together to protect the company’s industrial infrastructure. Understanding the industrial process to detect real anomalies. Giving IT experts visibility on the OT assets so they can build security policies.
