Strong authentication 2FA / MFA for the industrial sector
As industries become increasingly connected, they are exposed to many and varied cyber threats. A challenge that imposes on players a reinforced security policy to protect identities and access to both internal and external applications. Discover how inWebo MFA strong authentication meets the challenges and issues of the industrial sector.
Numerous cyber threats are likely to affect industry players (energy, transport, etc.). Cyber attacks are sometimes highly targeted and sophisticated: credential stuffing, president fraud, phishing and its avatars (man in the middle, man in the browser), SIM swapping and many others. These threats weigh not only on the production chain, but also on the image of manufacturers and, inevitably, on their turnover.
The implementation of a reliable and easy-to-use MFA strong authentication solution, adapted to the challenges of the industrial sector, largely contributes to protect against these cyber threats, and can even be seen as a competitive advantage.
Within a context of digitalisation of services and working methods, the interconnections involved in Industry 4.0 make network security an ever more important and sensitive issue. The players in the sector are constantly connected with their partners, suppliers and customers, and must therefore guarantee everyone a reliable and trustworthy basis in this high value-added network.

Many risk factors
Digitalization of the production chain
Operating in a network, industrial sites are a privileged target as they represent a lucrative source of income and are sensitive to cyber-attacks. This is particularly true since the players in the sector are still relatively ill-equipped to deal with these new cyber risks.
Strategic and critical applications
They are the gateway to data and are a major vector of attack for cybercriminals, whether through phishing or identity theft.
The move to the cloud
This is a real godsend for hackers. Account spoofing gives access to a lot more data and information as the use of the Cloud becomes more widespread.
Non-revoked or reassigned employee access, remote access, BYOD... it is often more cost-effective and easier for hackers to design internal attacks to strip companies of personal data collected from their customers or employees.
Strong authentication MFA / 2FA as a security solution
The implementation of a multi-factor strong authentication solution (MFA / 2FA) protects organisations and companies in the industrial sector against cyber threats. Moreover, it can be a source of added value by promoting organizational agility, user mobility and a better authentication experience.
