Manufacturing Use Case
Better Visibility and Control of Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems
Modern manufacturing is largely automated, dependent upon Industrial Control Systems (ICS) to more efficiently produce goods, from food to medicine to automobiles to faucets. ICS are interwoven through thousands of manufacturing facilities in the form of Engineering Workstations, SCADA applications and Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) for engineers and technicians to investigate and calibrate control systems.
The management and calibration of intricate manufacturing control systems is essential, but these control system investigations and calibrations are generally a manual process with little visibility and control.
How Xona Meets These Challenges
The Xona zero-trust platform allows the control system interface, such as a HMI or SCADA application, to move with the technician, making manufacturing operations more efficient and reducing costs associated with manual processes.
Many of these ICS interfaces at manufacturing plants use antiquated, unpatched systems, but Xona reduces the risk associated with access by providing better visibility and control through its zero-trust access platform.
In addition, Xona meets stringent compliance objectives such as IEC 62443 and NIST 800-53 by addressing key features such as multi-factor authentication (MFA), intermediate system (gateway) for network and protocol isolation, and session logging and recording.
Energy is fundamental and critical to our daily lives, and Industrial Control Systems are interwoven throughout the energy industry. Xona reduces risk and increases efficiency when it comes to remote access of those systems.
Oil & Gas
Oil and Gas relies on thousands of Industrial Control Systems, from upstream oil fields to midstream pipelines all the way to downstream delivery to power generation facilities. The Xona platform simplifies secure, remote access for oil and gas companies.
Modern manufacturing is largely automated, dependent upon Industrial Control Systems to more efficiently produce goods, from food to medicine to automobiles to faucets. Introducing Xona into operations provides better visibility and control of ICS through secure remote access.
Federal, state and local government operations are heavily dependent on Industrial Control Systems. Remote access to this critical infrastructure is highly valuable, and Xona’s platform provides that access while reducing risk and cost for our government.
