"Without evidence from assurance processes, it’s very difficult to make credible risk-based decisions." NIST
Automated misconfiguration detection and remediation for firewalls, switches and routers in manufacturing
The manufacturing industry is facing a time of unprecedented digitization, with the adoption of new technologies being embraced like never before. Often referred to as ‘Industry 4.0’, advancements in technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, internet of things (IOT), analytics and augmented reality have improved manufacturing processes, supply chain management and customer experience.
These advancements bring opportunity, but also the need to protect adequately against cyber-attacks. With manufacturing becoming the most attacked industry according to IBM's Threat Intelligence Index 2022, cybersecurity is high on the agenda for this sector. Especially as manufacturers are increasingly being asked by customers to demonstrate the robustness of their cybersecurity processes.
Manufacturing is an essential part of the global supply chain a fact that ransomware actors are taking advantage off. With real risk around loss of data, disruption to production, capital theft and intellectual property, and not to mention damage to reputation, manufacturers need to take cybersecurity seriously.
Nipper helps advanced cyber teams make credible, risk-based decisions to improve network security and protect critical networks against increasingly sophisticated exploits. Nipper’s accurate configuration assessments enables users to detect misconfigurations in firewalls, switches and routers, as well as determining their impact to the network if exploited, the ease of exploitation, and ease of fix - in order to prioritize remediation workflows by risk criticality.
Nipper Enterprise is now providing this capability at scale, enabling the assessment of up to 300,000 devices on an up-to-hourly basis, and the roadmap to automatically remediate vulnerabilities and insecure configurations in order to help organisations establish a defendable network.
Critical risk remediation prioritization:
- Misconfigurations detected and assessed for
- impact to the network if exploited,
- ease of exploitation, and
- ease and time to fix
- Device specific remediation advice and command-line fixes
- Daily configuration drift monitoring
Security and compliance assurance:
- Assure compliance for FISMA, HIPAA, NIST, DISA RMF, CDM, CMMC and PCI DSS
- Reduce audit times by up to 80% with evidence of compliance
- Assessor-ready reports of compliance with:
- 94% of NIST 800-53 network controls
- 89% of CMMC network practices to evidence SCRM
- 94% of PCI DSS network device procedures
Continuous misconfiguration detection and response
- Continuous visibility of misconfigurations and vulnerabilities
- Strategic, real-time prioritization of risk and remediation
- Dashboards and reports of security and compliance posture
- Roadmap to playbook-controlled auto-remediation

Supply Chain Risk Management
As part of wider supply chains, manufacturers are increasingly obligated to identify, assess and mitigate supply chain-related security threats when part of goverment supply chains. Aligning to federal government supply chain security efforts – even when not mandated – demonstrates that they can protect their government customers, as well as themselves, from threat-actors.
Nipper can be used to automate the assessment of firewalls, switches and routers for a range of risk management frameworks and security standards, including NIST 800-53, NIST 800-171, CMMC – cutting audit times by up to 80% due to its accuracy, and identifying misconfigurations that arise from interdependent settings that other configuration auditing cannot detect.
Nipper automates the compliance assessment of 94% of NIST 800-53 network controls and 89% of the NIST 800-171 controls related to network devices. And for contractors that intend to voluntarily obtain CMMC certification to verify their cybersecurity standards, Nipper helps demonstrate compliance with 89% of CMMC network security practices across 9 domains.
