Process Protection

  • Authenticated enrollment with unified workflow
  • Tamper-resistant updates with supply chain protection
  • Network access controls for an embedded perimeter
  • Monitoring for audit logs and event historian
  • Device authentication (PSK, certificates)
  • Centralized key distribution center (with high availability)
  • Automated key rotation
  • Secure device configuration updates
  • Multi-site, multi-tenant services
  • No complex PKI infrastructure buildout

Industrial control systems (ICS) and energy grids require process protection for automation and uninterrupted service cycles. These systems are high value targets for advanced ransomware and nation-state attacks. The IT/OT dichotomy and budgetary restrictions that constrain modernization are significant challenges. The risks that must be addressed are effective device monitoring for compliance audits and efficient recovery mechanisms to mitigate service outages.

Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) are fundamentally dissimilar. Bridging the IT-OT divide (in some cases, a thin line) is the implementation challenge. Even a multi-layer defense strategy is not effective in OT realm. The field operators dealing with Industrial IoT (IIoT) must traverse the business, plant, and control DMZ to access internal production systems (e.g. HMI workstations, controllers, robots, and sensors). Many autonomous systems in the IoT realm fall outside the line of sight (and scope) of traditional managed IT. Managing authentication directories, PKI infrastructure build-out, key and certificate management services pose implementation challenges for OT operators not well-versed in the myriad of associated security protocols.

Process Automation Workflow


Protect inter-device messaging and supervisory controls over multicast, broadcast and unicast network communications with a plug-and-play solution based on industry standards for group domain of encryption and session key management with Mocana’s CyberSec solution. The zero-coding solution requires no application re-engineering to bolt-on data protection for confidentiality, device authentication for identification, and key exchange for automated key rotation with an FIPS-grade cryptographic engine.


Our end-to-end cybersecurity system enables secure, cryptographically-signed over-the-air (OTA) and over-the-web (OTW) firmware updates. It allows you to integrate hardware or software-based roots of trust such as TPM, SGX, TrustZone, HSMs, SIMs, and MIMs and enable you to replace open source crypto software such as OpenSSL.
