Securing modern manufacturing operations takes a new approach, one that takes into consideration:
Service level availability and resiliency as the highest priority.
Scale of connected devices and inter-connected operating partners is only increasing.
Costs and complexity must be kept to a minimum.
Tempered, a pioneer in micro-segmentation solutions for IoT and industrial systems can help manufacturers take full advantage of digital transformation without having to accept growing cybersecurity and privacy risks as a cost of doing business.
The Tempered solution is based on zero trust security where no one is trusted by default from inside or outside the networks, the virtual air gaps, it creates. Verification is required from every Airwall Edge Device to gain access to the protected networks. As such, the Tempered solution works best by establishing trust before connectivity takes place between any devices within your network. All system-level network connections are automatically authenticated and authorized between every endpoint through trusted and verifiable machine identities that cannot be exploited or spoofed. With a single network architecture spanning IT, industrial, virtual, and cloud environments, you can now enforce consistent cybersecurity and privacy across all environments.Learn more
The Purdue Model has been historically used to create security and access zones for various operational levels in manufacturing networks. While used less today because of the increasing connection requirements between OT and IT networks, it's an example of how to begin to segment networks with zero trust and make it more difficult to reach more vulnerable systems.

What our customers are saying
“We have hundreds of applications that are hard coded with IP addresses for our devices on the factory floor. We were able to leave our network flat but carve it up, with no downtime. No other technology could do that.”
