Cybercrime in Germany is increasing noticeably: in the fourth quarter of 2022, the country recorded the second most ransomware attacks worldwide, just behind the USA. Among the five most frequently affected sectors were manufacturing and public authorities, according to the findings of the latest threat report by the Trellix Advanced Research Center. With the convergence of IT and OT, Industry 4.0 and innovations such as the Internet of Things, manufacturing is increasingly confronted with challenges that are mainly known from IT - the vulnerability to cyber attacks is increasing.

The attack surface is growing

The threat landscape has evolved into a complex construct, making it one of the biggest challenges for industry as well as critical infrastructure. As machines are now interconnected with each other and the internet, new avenues are opening up for hackers. With a static and isolated approach to security, companies are often unable to address the ever-changing cyber risks.

XDR for a "Living Security

To keep up with the dynamic attacks and sophisticated approaches of hackers, a centralised overview and comprehensive transparency is necessary. This is the only way to create and guarantee a holistic approach to security. This is where a SaaS-based Extended Detection and Response (XDR) platform comes in. XDR stands for extended detection and response, where extended refers to the fact that the solution spans multiple security vectors, including endpoints, network, cloud and email, as well as third-party security products. Detection is based on the ability to detect threats across all vectors as they occur. Finally, Response enables organisations to be better prepared to respond effectively to attacks in real time.

Detect and eliminate threats early

With XDR, companies go beyond typical security controls. It provides real-time insights into the current security situation as part of what is known as "living security" and ensures that threats can be detected early and eliminated before they cause damage. Through automation and correlation analysis across multiple vectors, organisations are also able to make faster and more accurate decisions to ensure security across the ecosystem.
