Interconnectivity has undoubtedly been a boon to the manufacturing industry, creating incredible opportunities and driving massive transformations. But with those advances come new challenges.
Interconnectivity also gives malicious actors a wider area to attack and broader access to mine your infrastructure for valuable information. With the Internet of Things connecting devices not only to each other but also to the internet, keeping these threats at bay becomes an even more urgent priority.
Manufacturers need a robust cybersecurity apparatus from top to bottom to protect not only finished projects but also those in the production stage. They need to fend off cyber espionage threats from individuals causing havoc as well as those affiliated with a national government who are poking around intellectual property information and business intelligence. This intelligence becomes all the more valuable – and therefore more attractive to threats – as technology improves.

How LogPoint can help
LogPoint keeps a close eye on all the digital behavior that happens in your infrastructure, seamlessly alerting the appropriate decision makers of suspicious patterns in real time. Our optimized search functionality and swift reporting are valuable and dependable investigative tools in your effort to stamp out cybersecurity threats.
LogPoint’s scale-as-you-grow principle allows for quick and easy visualization with only a few resources – no matter how vast your IT landscape or dense your data is. Unwinding cyber infiltrations and exfiltrations can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. There’s more value than meets the eye in having the proper defenses up to stop a cyber-threat before it becomes a breach.
Most attacks on manufacturing organizations are targeted — the attackers focus their efforts on a specific organization with a clear purpose in mind. These attacks are rarely random acts of cyber vandalism, and more often than not, a malicious actor is motivated to steal your specific intellectual property.
It’s important to keep in mind, though, that sometimes the threat is coming from inside your own building. While threats certainly loom outside your infrastructure, it’s just as important to identify privilege misuse in which your employees attempt to exfiltrate your secret data.
Intellectual property is your most valuable asset and motivated criminals are going to try to steal as much of it as they can for as long as they can.
Monitoring of critical systems
In LogPoint, dynamic lists collect and store specific values from events and allow for dynamic updates using values from log messages, while dynamic tables store specified fields and field values during runtime to be used as enrichment sources. By enabling analysts to define dynamic lists and tables, organizations can reduce the time to detect and respond to incidents faster. By combining dynamic lists with static enrichment, we also empower our customers to build self-configuring analytics to automatically react to new observations on the data, thus accelerating response.

Advanced analytics correlation and pattern recognition
By default, LogPoint can perform advanced correlation of any number of data sources – internal, external, or structured. Whether it is something as simple as aggregation between two or more groups of entities such as user and source address for failed logins or combining records in multiple log messages across multiple data sources using join and followed by queries, we will provide you with real-time alerts on risky behavior, and anomalous activities. In LogPoint, Dynamic lists can also be used to perform advanced correlations in a number of ways such as creating a dynamic list with IP addresses or hostnames for vulnerable workstations to identify any potential exploitation of a vulnerability by a threat source.

Identifying threat indicators associated with an executed malware payload
LogPoint’s FIM is an effective tool to monitor the creation of new files or change in file’s extension indicating malware payload execution. The hash value given by the Integrity Monitor can be compared to the Virus total database, identifying the associated threat.
