Manufacturers are an attractive target, and their business is reliant on legacy machinery which was not designed to withstand today's sophisticated attacks. 

The manufacturing industry is the third most targeted sector by cyber criminals - typically motivated by financial gain, or with the intention of stealing intelligence on any new product, process, or technology that a manufacturer creates. On top of this, it's common knowledge amongst criminals that manufacturers have historically neglected IT security, focusing their efforts instead on operational technology, which has left many with significant network vulnerabilities. 

Barracuda solutions work together to secure email, web traffic, online applications, backend network operations, remote users, and your network perimeter, with unmatched ease of use and simple, centralised management - all while supporting regulatory and eDiscovery compliance.
