CloudJacket Designed for Factories

Many factories and manufacturing organizations are late adopters of digital technologies. This factor increases the risk of phishing, malware installation, or accidentally exposing sensitive information. The manufacturing sector is highly connected with two-way communication with vendors, partners, logistics companies, and storage facilities. These third parties are often whitelisted and have substantial access to information but can also serve as an entry point for bad actors. Manufacturing, which ranked as the eighth most attacked industry in 2019, jumped to one of the most targeted sectors by cyberattacks in 2022 and maintained this position into 2023. The surge in attacks is attributed to the sector’s increased digitalization and connectivity, which has exposed it to sophisticated cyber threats such as ransomware and phishing. The significant rise in cyberattacks highlights the critical need for robust cybersecurity measures in the manufacturing industry​ 

In response to this, we have designed CloudJacket, a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service that addresses the security needs of the manufacturing industry without burdening their IT staff with alerts, making it affordable and effective. The CloudJacket platform unifies XDR, EDR, SIEM, MDR, and NDR functionalities together with a threat intelligence platform for a comprehensive solution to information security threats. This cutting-edge technology collects vital data from a myriad of sources, which is then analyzed through our proprietary eXtended intelligence engine and assessed by our SOC – a dedicated team of highly-experienced cybersecurity experts based in the USA. CloudJacket provides state-of-the-art protection against malware, ransomware, data breaches, unauthorized access, and other sophisticated attack vectors. With us, you get an unparalleled blend of protection, detection, and response capabilities, all bundled into one powerful package. Our value lies not just in our defense system, but in the peace of mind we provide, allowing you to focus solely on driving your organization to new heights.

  • Ransomware
  • Advanced Persistent Threats
  • Denial of service
  • Phishing or impersonation of employees
  • Unauthorized Access to Credentials
  • Supply Chain Attacks

Why are Manufacturers a Target?

  • The success rate of ransom collection is high
  • The potential value of selling breached data on the dark web
  • Access to intellectual property and trade secrets
  • Access to other organizations that are connected such as major clients

CMMC and Manufacturing

If you are supplying goods to the government, you’ve likely heard about Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The Department of Defense (DoD) developed the CMMC to address significant compromises of sensitive defense information in response to cyberattacks on defense contractors. Most notable was a string of cyberattacks on Navy contractors by Chinese spies, detailed in a 2018 Wall Street Journal expose. The WSJ article prompted an internal Navy cybersecurity audit, which described the military as woefully underprepared for modern cybersecurity threats. One of the issues noted in the Navy audit was that the DoD relied on its contractors to self-report cyber vulnerabilities and incidents. This honor system resulted in very few incidents being reported. The CMMC consists of 171 cybersecurity best practices and five “maturity levels,” ranging from basic cyber hygiene to advanced processes. The more best practices an organization meets, the higher its maturity level, and the more contracts they’ll be eligible to bid on.
