Industrial Networks Exposed Through Cloud-Based Operational Tech

The benefits of using a cloud-based management platform to monitor and configure industrial control systems (ICS) devices are obvious — efficiency, cost-savings and better diagnostics just for starters. But new research found critical vulnerabilities in these platforms that could be used to paralyze operations if left unmitigated.

An analysis by Claroty’s newly branded Team82 research team found striking vulnerabilities in the CODESYS and WAGO industrial systems, which make use of cloud-based automation for operational technology (OT) — a segment often referred to as “Industry 4.0.”
