The manufacturing industry is experiencing a major transformation, commonly referred to as Industry 4.0 or the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Recent innovations in embedded technologies, cloud computing and artificial intelligence have allowed for greater supply chain automation and significant productivity gains, but they’ve also introduced new complexities into the cybersecurity landscape. 

While the benefits have largely outweighed the operational challenges, manufacturers have had to ramp up their information technology infrastructures and data security investments to keep pace with emerging cyber threats. This has forced many small and medium-sized companies to partner with external IT service providers who do not always deliver on their promises, which is where Certitude Security can help.

The Certitude Security Advantage

Digital crime

At Certitude Security, we believe that enterprise cybersecurity shouldn’t be limited to manufacturers with enterprise budgets. That’s why we’ve assembled a team of IT security experts who specialize in the deep assessment and analysis of manufacturing supply chains, and we’ve equipped them with the enterprise-level tools your company needs to protect its bottom line. Our proven process allows us to prioritize the cyber threats with the highest business impact, ensuring your critical assets are safeguarded from malicious exploitation.

Certitude Security works with manufacturing companies of all shapes and sizes to verify the cybersecurity practices of internal and external IT teams with a focus on threat assessment, data protection and vulnerability management.

If your company outsources its IT management and security, we will ensure your provider is upholding best practices and delivering the full-spectrum service you’re paying for.

Certitude Security also collaborates with in-house IT personnel to apply incremental security fixes and bridge the gap between your organization’s tech-focused professionals and its business leaders, helping to efficiently allocate your resources.
