Protecting manufacturing systems against ransomware attacks

The importance of migrating critical business systems to the cloud.

As ransomware attacks become more prevalent, manufacturers must take steps to protect their systems. In this industry brief, learn how migrating critical systems to the cloud can help prevent cyberattacks and keep operations running.

As manufacturing organizations continue to become more digitized, the frequency of ransomware attacks is steadily increasing. According to a recent Morphisec study, 1 in 5 manufacturing organizations in the U.S. and UK have been victims of a cyberattack in the past 12 months.

In addition, recent events in the U.S. have highlighted the potential downstream impacts to the supply chain if an organization falls victim to a cyberattack.

As these ransomware attacks become more prevalent, manufacturers must take proactive steps to protect their systems. By migrating critical business systems to the cloud, manufacturers can:

  • Remove the burden of maintaining on-premise solutions from the IT department
  • Ensure version currency with automatic system updates
  • Take advantage of leading security standards provided by the vendor
  • Protect the personally identifiable information of employees and customers
