The Infosys Industrial Manufacturing practice offers robust IT infrastructure and security management solutions for an Industry 4.0 ecosystem. We create a smart manufacturing environment underlined by a digital thread to facilitate secure, real-time communication and interaction between people, devices, equipment, processes, applications, and industrial control systems. A digital backbone supports sophisticated controllers, sensors, actuators, and systems including Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).

A smart IT network empowers industrial manufacturing enterprises with autonomous and self-organizing functionality. We use a hierarchical architecture for computing and communication systems, which facilitates general purpose protocols at higher layers, and special protocols at lower layers to accelerate response times of heterogeneous systems, devices and networks.

Infosys retrofits brownfield industrial manufacturing systems and centralized Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) models with advanced security systems. Our consultants integrate cyber security as a foundational layer in a decentralized networked control system. It simplifies security management and prevents breaches in a connected manufacturing enterprise. Further, our training programs improve preparedness for passive and active security attacks, create awareness about security standards and regulatory compliance, and share mechanisms for resumption of a secure operating state in the event of an incident.

Our experts undertake infrastructure security assessment, security and compliance audit, and Black Box and White Box testing. Our repository of prevention and diagnostic tools and methodologies detect faults, threats and anomalies in near real time. Significantly, our advanced security solutions combine symmetric encryption algorithms, hybrid encryption schemes, public key infrastructure, role-based access control, and multi-factor authentication.
