Case 1 Sewing Machine Monitoring Solution
Sewing companies can deploy an IoT monitoring solution for sewing machines, with networked sewing machines sending data to a centralized cloud server. This can mean significant savings to the operator, since the manufacturing times of the machines can be controlled much closely and from a remote location. However, this also allows for remote attacks which can wipe out any savings (and more) in a matter of seconds.
A sewing company came to us for security in their factory. Penta Security advised that, for starters, security was needed for communication between the network of sewing machines and the monitoring server.
- Provide device authentication for each industrial sewing machine
- Encrypted communications of data between sewing machines and cloud server, as well as with each other
- Ensure data integrity of information being sent to monitoring server
Case 2 Smart Factory Monitoring Service
A smart factory monitoring service provider contacted us for security for their factory administrator clients. This partner was looking to offer app-based monitoring solution for factory equipment. This would allow this partner to provide their smart factory monitoring services. But an attack was a risk they could not ignore before providing these services, since security is required for communications between equipment, and with monitoring servers, and of course, the devices (phones & tablet) communicating with that server.
