IT Dynamics Meets Manufacturing

IT Dynamics help IT and operation technology (OT) departments come together and address the challenges that modern manufacturers face.

Whether you’re looking to gain greater insight into activities on the factory floor,

troubleshoot network issues before they impact production, or prioritize production-critical applications

at geographically distributed sites, IT Dynamics lets you manage all of your IT needs from a single dashboard.

Count on the Including advanced networking, enterprise-grade security and mobility management,

and video surveillance — to reduce costs, increase production throughputs, and mitigate downtime risks.

 

Cisco Meraki:
Manage and Deploy with Ease
  • Intuitive web-based dashboard to manage all Meraki devices

  • Zero-touch provisioning and plug-and-play devices allow sites to go live in days without the need for highly trained network engineers

  • Lock production devices in single app mode

  • Monitor device battery charge, location, status, etc.

Reduce Costs

  • Troubleshoot network issues in real-time with tools such as remote packet capture and cable testing,

  • reducing operating costs by up to 90% compared to traditional technologies

  • PoE/PoE+ options provide power for edge devices across the site as well as monitoring

  • Apply port schedules to automatically turn off always-on devices when idle to save on-site energy consumption.

Minimize Waste

  • Deploy Meraki security cameras as a sensor to intelligently monitor processes on-site

  • Industry's simplest solution to implement — just plug cameras into Ethernet

  • Find footage of interest in minutes without the need to export any data

  • Use footage and built-in analytics to rapidly learn and improve site processes.

Expand protection, reduce risks in IT/OT operations

Manufacturers around the world trust Palo Alto Networks® to protect the entire manufacturing enterprise, across the plant floor, manufacturing execution systems, corporate IT, IoT, and the industrial cloud.

Enable high uptime and safety

“Industry 4.0” is driving operational efficiencies and profitability in manufacturing, but increased connectivity introduces new vulnerabilities. Attackers have new pathways to exploit, increasing the risk of plant downtime, destruction of equipment and unsafe conditions as well as risks to intellectual property.

 

Palo Alto Networks prevents successful cyberattacks that can lead to disruption of plant processes and theft of IP. Tight integration within the platform streamlines routine security tasks.
