The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) offers a host of new opportunities for manufacturers — by harnessing intelligent machines, advanced analytics, and communication technologies, it enables groundbreaking levels of insight, efficiency, productivity, and performance. 

It also presents a new set of security challenges with a heterogeneous device landscape that can include microcontrollers, Linux hosts, industrial networks of industrial control systems, and many other types of components. Add in an array of new connectivity options, and you have a landscape that is more complex and harder to secure than the landscapes of the past, and has far-reaching effects if an attack is successful. Fortunately, SAP has put a lot of thought into how these types of environments can be secured. 

This webinar looks at the challenges of securing IIoT environments, and shares tools, principles, and techniques SAP customers can use to ensure a reasonably secure landscape. You will: 
  • Get a detailed look at the heterogeneous landscapes that make up IIoT environments 
  • Understand key principles that are of critical importance in IIoT security, most notably the use of end-to-end encryption and device identity 
  • See different IIoT use cases, and the differences between them when it comes to risk  Learn techniques and approaches for securing heterogeneous IIoT landscapes
