After a Destructive Malware Attack, Things Had to Change
Modernizing infrastructure across 80 sites, worldwide
A well-known global snack food company endured a destructive malware attack that disrupted their networks and brought production to a halt. It was clear that all of their sites—80 globally—needed to be modernized and secured. Earlier attempts had failed, given the complexity and heterogeneity of their networks.
Rockwell Automation was brought in to help create a global inventory of the company’s digital assets, to enhance incident response capabilities and overall cybersecurity.
Collaborating with the company’s global director of engineering, networks were assessed, identifying all installed base assets and confirming compatibility between security systems and existing enterprise networks and applications. Rockwell Automation then developed a plan to mitigate network conflicts and implemented 24/7 remote threat monitoring and administration.
Today, the company is operating with reduced cybersecurity risk, higher agility and decreased downtime.
