Bringing modern
to manufacturing


Effective solutions for Smart factory

One of the main targets on the development agenda of factories is increasing output and reducing costs at the same time. To make this possible, enterprises actively deploy automated production control and other IT-based tools, for example, specialized systems designed for managing manufacturing infrastructure components and monitoring their condition.

Modern information systems serving the needs of manufacturing players, including automated process control systems (APCS), require a wider range of technologies compared to classical information systems. The life cycle of technical equipment in manufacturing systems is much longer than that in corporate infrastructure — 20 years vs. 5 on average.

In manufacturing, any operations shutdown, even if planned, may result in significant losses. And incidents involving failure of key components of production systems may lead to huge fines, contract terminations, and in some cases, even casualties and environmental disasters.

Factories are some of the most attractive targets for cyber attacks. The goals of cybercriminals are obvious: industrial espionage, severe reputational damage, production shutdown, or terrorism. For business owners, any attack on their production system may result in significant financial losses, serious reputational damage, and tangible time wastes.


Factories own complex service networks to support their manufacturing process. Such networks may have distinguishing features that have to do with organizational history and enterprise characteristics. The IT infrastructure of each enterprise is unique and requires a special approach.

Yet, we believe that all manufacturing players have to deal with common information security challenges:

  • Stolen and blocked confidential data. Such data may include, for example, diverse know-how, process descriptions, product release and manufacturing development plans.
  • Service network penetration. The architecture of service networks has specific features which make them highly vulnerable to penetrations from the corporate network. This is why many organizations still choose to disallow access from corporate to service networks. But this will not stop an internal attacker who can use local access to penetrate the service network.
  • Disruptions in management of manufacturing IT components. When it comes to infrastructure management, it is relatively easy to do something wrong and cause a system failure. That said, finding the reasons behind such failures may prove quite difficult.


Most attacks aimed at gaining access to corporate IT infrastructure target access control systems — in particular, the subsystem responsible for identification, authentication, and access control.

Axidian solutions can help, among other things, address the following tasks relevant for industry players:

  • Strong authentication to protect access to critical IT infrastructure components: Axidian Access and Axidian Key mobile app.
  • Biometric authentication and integration with Access Monitoring and Control System (AMCS) to eliminate threats related to local connections: Axidian Access.
  • Privileged user control, including monitoring the activities of APCS engineers and contractor representatives, to prevent unauthorized access and mitigate the impact of failure: Axidian Privilege.
  • Minimal interference with critical components of manufacturing infrastructure to prevent unexpected failures and disruptions: Axidian Access and Axidian Privilege.

Axidian offers reliable solutions to protect your business from serious information security threats based on a wide range of access protection and management tools. In addition, these solutions can help improve the performance of your information security professionals and save their time.
