Securing the Supply Chain

Protecting Manufacturing Organizations with Managed Detection and Response

The fourth industrial revolution (IR 4.0) connects factory floors and supply chain elements through industrial IoT (IIoT) and execution systems tied to enterprise resource management and critical business intelligence services. Manufacturing sees IR 4.0 as the future, while sophisticated threat actors view it as an expanded attack surface littered with vulnerable systems and valuable data—all belonging to companies with much to lose.

Business and IT leaders alike are responsible for developing security programs that can detect and contain threats, in a new landscape where ransomware gangs and state-sponsored actors have identified supply chains and manufacturing business processes as preferred targets. Managing cyber risk is a business imperative for manufacturing organizations to enjoy the benefits of Industry 4.0 without falling victim to debilitating, expensive and public cyberattacks.

Manufacturing organizations need cybersecurity expertise to proactively detect, disrupt and remediate cyber threats before they become business impacting events, or trigger procurement penalties. We have demonstrated success working with manufacturing firms and their supply chain partners. Through our experience, we’ve developed a leading framework for firms to address the most common concerns and risks security leaders face:

We help manufacturing organizations:

  1. Monitor their environments 24/7
  2. Disrupt known and unknown threats
  3. Stop breaches before they impact business operations
  4. Protect Proprietary and supply-chain information
  5. Avoid supply chain penalties
  6. Mitigate Supply Chain Risk

Preventing Operational Disruption

Managing cyber risk requires cooperation between the Operational Technology and Information Technology groups that have traditionally functioned as separate entities. It requires the ability to monitor both the shop floor and front office to rapidly detect suspicious activity, investigate in minutes and take measures to contain threats before they become business disrupting.

eSentire Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services balance cutting-edge machine learning XDR technology, human security expertise and security operations leadership to mitigate your business risk, enable security at scale and drive your cyber program forward. Our 24/7 Security Operations Center Cyber Analysts and Elite Threat Hunters have discovered and defended numerous instances of ransomware gangs attempting to establish a foothold in one of our protected manufacturing environments. Sample support included:

Protecting Proprietary and Supply Chain Information

Manufacturers work in partnership with upstream vendors and downstream clients. Coordinated production requires the sharing of proprietary knowledge including intellectual property, manufacturing processes, tolerance and standards, and other business intelligence. Stolen information can cripple production, reduce enterprise value or even break relationships.

Our 24/7 MDR services detect intrusions and stop attacks before data is exfiltrated. Our Threat Response Unit (TRU) actively scours the dark web looking for stolen client data. Our services are designed to catch intrusions in the early stage before they can establish a foothold and steal valuable manufacturing data, providing trust and confidentiality that is so imperative in this line of business.

Avoiding Supply Chain Penalties

Operational disruptions can have a massive effect on downstream suppliers and trigger contractual procurement penalties could result in significant financial losses for manufacturers participating in complex supply chains. eSentire Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services hunt threats and suspicious activity to investigate in minutes and contain these attacks before they become business disrupting. Our security experts have protected firms from sophisticated criminal campaigns and target state-sponsored espionage attacks.

Mitigating Supply Chain Risk

We identify core services, such as manufacturing execution systems (MES), ICS/SCADA controllers, and other OT systems, and prioritize these services for monitoring.

Our services detected and blocked the malicious web shell scripts associated with the 2021 Microsoft Exchange vulnerabilities, worked with clients to secure their SolarWinds Orion issues, and discovered multiple remote administrator tool vulnerabilities. Our Risk Management services provide assessments of risk, recommend minimum security measures, and ways to offset risk.

About Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

At eSentire, our comprehensive approach to MDR helps organizations test, mature, measure, and protect their environments from a multitude of risk factors. Our MDR services rapidly identify and contain threats that bypass traditional security controls. Ingesting signals from your on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments, we combine endpoint, network, log, vulnerability, and cloud data to identify known and elusive threats. Averaging 15 minutes from identification to containment, we ensure attackers don’t have the time to achieve their objectives
