Increasing Cybersecurity Endpoints Protection with Moxa V2406C Series Industrial Computers Defend against cyber threats and protect sensitive data with a more secure computing platform and Intel hardware-enabled security solution Table of Contents: Introduction In today’s age, data has undoubtedly become a lifeblood of modern businesses, Introduction 1 providing valuable insights to optimize real-time management over critical processes and operations. Every day, large amounts of data are routinely collected in real-time Intel Hardware Security: The from sensors and IoT devices operating in remote locations or harsh environments Foundation to around the world. This virtual ocean of data is ever-growing, and it is changing the way Next-Generation Secured businesses operate as well as their IT infrastructure. A traditional computing paradigm Industrial Computers 2 that is built on a centralized data center, coupled with internet bandwidth limitations no longer fits the growing flow of fast-paced real-time data. Latency and unpredictable Moxa V2406C with Industrial disruptions can compromise operations. Today, businesses are adopting edge OT Security in Mind 2 computing architecture as a response to these data challenges. Edge computing is a distributed computing paradigm that moves a portion of the computation and data Case Study: V2406C storage closer to the location where the data is produced, such as the IoT devices or Industrial PC for Reliable local edge servers. Railway Passenger Information System (PIS) and The adoption of edge computing can significantly reduce the latency of applications Gateway Network Video while enabling AI-powered functionality and user experience. However, with the Recorder (NVR), Start with proliferation of edge computing, more devices are placed in dispersed locations, Security in Mind 3 leading to a greater risk of interference or damages from unauthorized access or physically tampering with devices if cybersecurity measures are not adjusted to fit the Conclusion 4 new paradigm. Defending endpoints from the malicious activity is crucial as it can prevent hackers from stealing data, sabotaging critical operations, or gaining access to the corporate infrastructure and systems. Without proper Operational Technology (OT) endpoint protection, companies will be at significant risk of cyberattacks which can severely affect the entire business operations and IT infrastructure. In recent years, the (1) railway sector has increasingly come under attack from cyberthreats. Experts believe the risk of cyberattackers disrupting the public railway systems is growing, as malware may be lurking in critical safety systems which can pose significant threats to the (2) operations. In 2020, a Swiss rolling stock manufacturer’s IT network was attacked by malware and when the company refused to pay a $6m ransom, documents stolen (3) during the cyber-attack was published online. As cyberattacks are evolving, software alone is no longer sufficient to protect against these security threats. Software can be spoofed by breaches that allow hackers to gain access to a business system. Partnering with Intel, Moxa provides solutions that are designed to be both breach-resistant and breach-ready through the combination of software and hardware-based security features to support their partners in their cybersecurity framework and help keep data center infrastructure secure in the OT space.
