Connected Factory

Connected Factory

In the era of Industry 4.0, the convergence of Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized manufacturing. However, with this transformation comes the critical need for flexible security solutions to protect against evolving cyber threats. KeyScaler unifies IoT/OT security with a solution designed to secure connected factories and ensure uninterrupted operations.

A global manufacturer of motion control systems was experiencing unpredictable downtime across its factory locations which was disrupting their end customers’ supply chain. ​

They wanted to improve OEE by digitizing the plant floor and installing smart sensors to automate monitoring of production systems to spot errors and determine when equipment needs maintenance. ​

These sensors and production systems need to be protected from outside threats, as any disruption to the manufacturing process costs hundreds of thousands of dollars per day and if exploited, valuable proprietary data can be lost or compromised



KeyScaler was deployed with the following benefits:

  • Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) technology established root of trust and enabled automated crypto-key generation at each authentication session.
  • Zero touch device provisioning and registration with Microsft Azure IoT Hub
  • Automated Device Identity Lifecycle Management for all production assets and monitoring of devices on the factory floor using x.509 certificates from their existing PKI provider
  • KeyScaler Edge enabled the management of offline devices connecting via secure Edge gateways

A major global pharmaceutical company upgraded its connected factories as part of a digital transformation strategy. Their new Microsoft Azure IoT Edge Gateway infrastructure requires a robust and automated Identity Lifecycle Management solution utilizing x.509 certificates to provide device and data protection which presents challenges when connecting both online and offline Edge devices in a nested parent-child configuration to the Cloud.



KeyScaler was implemented to provide:

  • Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) to establish device root of trust and enable Automated Device Provisioning
  • PKI Services to integrate with existing corporate PKI utiizing x.509 certificates
  • KeyScaler Edge to enable full Identity Lifecycle Management for multi-layer IoT Edge Nested Gateways and leaf devices
  • KeyScaler Security Suite for Microsoft Azure to integrate with Azure IoT Hub

Industry 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, signifies the integration of digital technologies into manufacturing and production processes. It encompasses concepts such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and cyber-physical systems, revolutionizing the way factories operate and transforming traditional manufacturing methods.


The adoption of Industry 4.0 principles brings unprecedented levels of efficiency, flexibility, and connectivity to factories. However, with this digital transformation comes increased cybersecurity risks. As factories become more interconnected, they become vulnerable to cyber threats, including unauthorized access, data breaches, and operational disruptions.


At Device Authority, we understand the importance of mitigating these risks and empowering connected factories with robust cybersecurity solutions. With KeyScaler Factory, we offer tailored security measures designed to protect critical assets, support regulatory compliance, and uphold operational continuity in the era of Industry 4.0.


  1. Unified Security: KeyScaler offers visibility and control of previously unmanaged devices throughout your supply chain, helping bring together IT and OT security by enforcing enterprise policy beyond traditional network boundaries, including offline devices using KeyScaler Edge.


  1. Secure Device Lifecycle Management: Ensure the integrity and security of devices throughout their lifecycle with KeyScaler’s comprehensive device identity lifecycle management features. From onboarding and provisioning to decommissioning and recommissioning, KeyScaler ensures that devices adhere to security best practices at every stage.


  1. Data Protection and Privacy: Safeguard sensitive data generated by IoT and OT devices with KeyScaler’s advanced data protection and privacy features. Encrypt data at rest and in transit, enforce data access controls, and comply with regulatory requirements to protect against data breaches and unauthorized access.


  1. Continuous Authorization and Threat Detection: Detect and respond to security threats in real-time with KeyScaler’s continuous monitoring and threat detection capabilities. Leverage AI and machine learning algorithms to analyze device behavior, detect anomalies, and mitigate security risks before they escalate.


KeyScaler is the ultimate security solution for connected factories, providing comprehensive protection against cyber threats while ensuring the uninterrupted operation of your manufacturing processes.
