Manufacturing

Enhanced manufacturing efficiency and IP security.

The manufacturing industry has become increasingly digitized, and access to applications and data is necessary even on the shop floor. It’s important to create systems that shield your operations from unauthorized access without hampering productivity. With an IAM system, you can reinforce security even while ensuring ease of access.

Protection of crucial assets

Today, every stage of product lifecycle management (PLM) is digital - from market research to concept, blueprints to production, upgrades and customer service, all the way to retirement. The applications you use at your manufacturing facility deal with intellectual property on design, engineering,sales, and service, and protecting this data is vital to your organization’s competitiveness.

A key point of vulnerability for your sensitive data is the passwords your users use to access their accounts. It’s important to use a system that goes beyond traditional password-based protection to reinforce security. Akku’s adaptive multi-factor authentication (AMFA) makes it possible to add an additional layer of security for your users, especially when unfamiliar activity such as unknown devices, times, or locations are detected during login.

Address the risk of compromised credentials by requiring an authentication factor other than passwords - TOTP, FaceID, TouchID, and even passwordless - with Akku AMFA.

Regulated access to resources

Your factory workers need to access several of your organization’s applications during the course of their daily operations - from CAD designs to manufacturing execution systems, quality management systems or even your ERP platform. However, it’s important to restrict access to these critical applications to prevent misuse.

One way to do this with Akku is to permit access only on specific days and hours. With predictable work schedules, this means anyone attempting to access your systems after hours or on a holiday will be blocked. Similarly, remote access to your applications is very rarely needed by your workers - so an IP-based restriction is an effective way to allow access only from within your facility’s network.

Maximize security and efficiency by applying Akku’s time-based and IP-based access controls to users in different roles.

Simplified login and enhanced productivity

Factory workers are often not digitally fluent, and managing multiple sets of credentials to access different applications on the factory floor can be a challenge. Recovering lost passwords by contacting IT support is also a drain on time - both in terms of production and for your IT admins.

With Akku, the first part of the solution to this situation is through the use of single sign-on to allow your users to log in to multiple applications with a single set of credentials. The second is to deploy Akku’s self-service password management solution to put your users in control and take a significant load off your IT team. And by eliminating the need for passwords completely with a passwordless authentication solution, that streamlines the process even further.

Boost productivity for your workers and IT team with a powerful single sign-on and effortless password management through Akku’s SSO& IdP and Password Manager.
