PEARL RIVER, NY, Aug 07, 2018 – ei3 Corporation, a leading provider of Industrial Internet services, has partnered with China Telecom to provide a remote machine service network enabling machine builders from around the world to connect to their equipment operating on factory floors inside China. First to benefit will be ei3’s long-term OEM clients Bobst and Lenze.
The manufacturing industry is under attack and machine builders are not immune to the bad actors—known as hackers. All across the U.S., manufacturers are silently struggling with an invisible force that threatens the livelihood of their businesses. This dark entity slips into an organization—often undetected—to steal passwords and intellectual property. Sometimes it demands money in exchange for unlocking enterprise servers. Sometimes it maliciously shuts down industrial machines in an attempt to cause physical harm, like an explosion. Other times, it’s not interested in the immediate prey, but has its sights set on a bigger victim, and therefore uses a company as a gateway into their partner networks. It is the hackers of the world that are wreaking havoc on unsuspecting organizations. And it is not just large multinational manufacturers that are targets, but everyone in the supply chain, including OEMs.
PEARL RIVER, NY, Jul. 09, 2018 – ei3 Corporation announces today that it has received a certificate of compliance with International Standard Organization (ISO) 27001:2013 by DEKRA Certification B.V. This audit validates ei3’s commitment to the safety and privacy of client data, together with the integrity of ei3’s IT infrastructure and business practices.

Living as we do in an increasingly digitalized world, new security challenges are materializing at an alarming pace, and few are as perplexing and tro… This guest column was written by Ben Miyares, Packaging World contributing editor “We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before… The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.” –Klaus Schwab, Founder & Executive Chairman, World […]
