Approach includes best practices for applying defense-in-depth security models, enhanced products and technologies and expanded partner ecosystem

Rockwell Automation launched an initiative to help manufacturers reduce security risks to control systems in response to growing cyber-security threats. Through the initiative, Rockwell Automation plans to help automation and IT professionals more effectively secure their industrial processes with a combination of control system design and best practices, contemporary technologies and professional services from Rockwell Automation and its strategic partnerships, including Cisco.

The three-pronged Rockwell Automation initiative was designed to achieve a secure connected enterprise through the defense-in-depth methodology, secure automation architecture and enterprise-ready industrial automation solutions.

Defense-in-depth addresses both internal and external threats by forming multiple layers of defense that help mitigate various types of risks. The Rockwell Automation defense-in-depth approach employed in an industrial control system design and operation helps manufacturers by establishing processes and policies that identify and contain evolving threats in industrial systems.
