Trend Micro Signs a Deal for Industrial IoT Security

Trend Micro PlatformTrend Micro has signed a deal with Schneider Electric. The new partnership will see EdgeIPS delivered as part of HMI Centric Architecture by Pro-face in order to:

  • Protect critical HMI systems from vulnerability exploitation
  • Streamline patch management, saving time and money
  • Accelerate industrial IoT (IIoT) projects with confidence

Tomoa Ishii, vice president of HMI Activity at Schneider Electric: “OT and IIoT environments are uniquely exposed to vulnerability exploitation, as legacy systems gain connectivity and digital transformation expands the attack surface. Trend Micro delivers visibility, control, and protection where OT security leaders need it most. With this alliance, we help asset owners accelerate their secure industrial transformation.”

Akihiko Omikawa, executive vice president of IoT security for Trend Micro and chairman of TXOne Networks: “Digital technology is driving a new industrial revolution. But it also creates new cyber risks. As an IoT security innovator, Trend Micro has the tools needed to safeguard critical business growth. Our partnership with Pro-face by Schneider Electric will put these tools in the hands of even more asset owners to help protect critical control system environments from vulnerability exploitation, connecting to secure operation.”

Industry 4.0 represents a radical convergence of IT and OT technologies to drive efficiency and cost savings on the factory floor. Yet it also exposes critical manufacturing systems to the risk of compromise.

Software vulnerabilities impacting human-machine interface (HMI) technology are major contributors to cyber risk in this sphere. Almost 89% of 2021′ CVEs affecting the critical manufacturing sector can be used to cause an impact, enabling denial of service, sabotage of production processes, or data theft.
