When it comes to cybersecurity, safeguarding power equipment may not always rank top of mind. Yet with hackers relentlessly exploiting new devices in innovative ways, coupled with more employees working remotely than ever before, vulnerabilities are emerging that you may not have previously considered. Because infrastructure equipment is smarter and more interconnected than ever before, deploying an end-to-end cyber defense solution has become absolutely essential.
Eaton uniquely understands the severity of threats faced by today’s organizations and how to best protect yourself from cybersecurity attacks. We’ve developed an entire portfolio of products with ingrained measures to prevent intrusion and mitigate risks. While there are different ways to address both cyber and physical security in power equipment, our solutions work in harmony to provide resilient, layered protection that help keep your operations and personnel safe.
Endpoint device security is the top concern of IT pros for their remote workforce.
As organizations rapidly pursue digital transformation and adopt new technologies and business processes, security issues are on the rise. In fact, 85 percent of CISOs reported that security concerns during digital transformation had a "somewhat" to "extremely large" business impact. This is especially true for companies that lack integration across their security solutions and complete visibility into user, system and network behavior. Software and power systems must work together to ensure a cohesive, seamless and layered protection solution for optimal network security against computer malware and other attacks.

Although baby monitors began as simple one-way radio transmitters, over the years they have evolved into sophisticated Wi-Fi enabled smart devices complete with features such as cameras and infrared vision. Unfortunately, the IoT devices aren’t smart enough to thwart hackers; in late 2018, a cyber crook accessed the wireless camera system in a U.S. monitor and threatened to kidnap the baby. Meanwhile, there are multiple reported incidents of strangers’ voices being heard over baby monitors.
