Murata Manufacturing adopts integrated operation monitoring tool globally for production plants

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has globally adopted the integrated operation monitoring tool “SCADAfence Platform” for factories and started using it. SCADAfence, in collaboration with its sales partner NRI Secure Technologies, will support the improvement of the level of security measures at Murata’s production plants and will continue to do so in the future. SCADAfence is an integrated operation monitoring tool developed for the purpose of factory security measures. In addition to the SCADAfence Platform, there are components of the automatic risk assessment tool “Governance & Compliance” and the IoT device management solution “IoT Management & Security”. By acquiring communication data of factory control systems and production equipment in real time and visualizing and analyzing the contents using analysis technology inside the original communication protocol, suspicious movements due to cyber attacks, internal malfunctions, and expectations Not discover and notify of equipment configuration changes. The SCADAfence Platform can be installed and operated in passive mode, which prioritizes the availability of production processes, without the need to change existing equipment or add agent software. In addition, it will automatically acquire operating asset information, generate an asset list, and easily find hidden assets such as “stray terminals.” In addition, it uses automatic learning-type behavior detection technology that utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to detect unauthorized terminal connections and abnormal control command executions. It is possible to centrally manage multiple bases and integrate them into the management system that is already in operation within the company.
