Prevent lateral movement with microsegmentation
Multiple cybersecurity reports from professional organizations in the manufacturing sector corroborate Verizon’s findings that most cyber attacks against manufacturers focus on stealing intellectual property. The reports also highlight a common pattern used by attackers to enter manufacturer networks — the attackers enter through vulnerable IT systems and move laterally to their ultimate target: the data.
Preventing lateral movement is a primary use case for network segmentation and microsegmentation. Edgewise offers distinct advantages to manufacturers based on our ability to:
- Protect desktop and server assets;
- Prevent spread of zero-day malware; and
- Isolate IT systems from operational systems.
