Cybersecurity for manufacturing
Get visibility into the security of devices and users, control access to networks, and stop cyber attacks before they happen.
Cisco Umbrella protects the devices that power your business
Manufacturers need easy-to-use, cost-effective solutions that help them manage cybersecurity.
Industry 4.0 is being realized through smart factories, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud manufacturing (CMfg) and connected supply chains. Embracing Industry 4.0 comes with a cost – a larger attack surface. Attacks on supply chains and headlines about security breaches have made it clear to manufacturers of all sizes that they are vulnerable, and no one is safe from cyber attackers.
Cisco Umbrella provides multiple security functions for manufacturers, including DNS layer protection, secure web gateway, firewall, and cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality.
As a cloud-delivered suite of services, Umbrella serves as the foundation of modern security and networking architecture — including security service edge (SSE) and secure access service edge (SASE) — enabling protection at every step of any manufacturing journey.
Building security resilience for manufacturing
Gain the ability to prioritize billions of signals across your environment with active monitoring
Take the right action
Prioritize what’s most important with continuous trust assessment and risk-based context analysis
Anticipate what’s next
Be one step ahead of threats through shared actionable intelligence and expertise
As part of IoT and data utilization amid the transition toward smart factories, we also have production equipment and sensors transmitting operating status data to other systems and services via the Internet. Using Cisco Umbrella, we can monitor the devices to see if they are transmitting data to correct destinations and check for unauthorized activities to minimize the risk of information leakage from the devices.

Cisco Umbrella is your first line of defense
The most successful manufacturers in the world recognize the increasing importance of cyber security, and it’s not hard to understand why.
As factories implement digitalization with robotics, automation, machinery, IoT/IIoT, and smart devices — it’s essential to secure all cloud and internet connected devices and users from the full spectrum of on-line risks including malware and ransomware threats.
Cisco Umbrella is a unified security solution that helps protect all devices, users, and connections. It is easy to deploy and integrates with your existing architecture and infrastructure to provide advanced protection against cyber threats, paving the road for Industry 4.0.
Umbrella’s security advantages for manufacturing
Get 100% uptime and decrease latency
Since 2006, our cloud infrastructure has been 100% reliable with zero downtime. Our hybrid, multi-cloud architecture allows manufacturing organizations to avoid traffic latency by balancing workloads across multiple clouds.
Prevent attacks before they happen
Umbrella’s DNS-layer security protects your manufacturing and operational technology (OT) systems and workforce, whether they are on or off the corporate network. Stopping cyberattacks and preventing the spread of ransomware, malware, trojans, and other threats over any port or protocol.
Extend the reach of security policies
Umbrella can detect and report on cloud apps in use, and reduce the risk of data loss by blocking or redirecting intentional or inadvertent attempts to transmit sensitive data. Identify the cloud and web services that are being used, implement access rules, protect sensitive data, and avoid risky activities.
