For manufacturing companies, supply chains are a critical and important process. To improve efficiency, and transparency, as well as automate processes, more companies are using digital solutions and IoT devices like sensors, appliances, and machines that connect and exchange data across the entire digital supply chain network.
Innovation in blockchain technology also plays a significant role and has the potential to create smarter and more secure supply chains by automating financial processes and increasing the traceability of products and materials, which can be tracked through transparent and solid audit trails with real-time visibility.
With digitalization and the use of IoT devices, there are also more vulnerabilities and entry points of attack for external attackers to gain access for any number of purposes.
To protect every stage of the supply chain, Utimaco provides various cybersecurity solutions that assist in the development of a Zero Trust Architecture. This ensures that every participant in the supply chain environment is verified. In addition, we support applications for additional security in the digital supply chain, such as blockchain security and the creation of evidence and trust with qualified electronic timestamps.
