As cyberattacks on industrial facilities increase, ABB and IBM extend threat monitoring from IT to plant equipment controllers.

Advanced technology solutions help you transform

Most industrial data is generated outside of IT – in manufacturing, supply chains or connected products. To apply the latest digital technologies, manufacturers must choose to either send data up or bring technology down. Proximity matters.

IBM’s Edge computing responds in real-time for worker safety and quality inspection. Built on open hybrid cloud, IBM brings AI innovation down to the action, so workflows can be built once and securely run anywhere.
