Why Choose Malisko for Cisco Integration?

Malisko’s strong partnership with Cisco allows us to provide our customers with the best digital solutions. Our consultations synchronize our plant floor automation platforms with Cisco offerings. Leading Cisco technology and our platform will drive your digital transformation, and our consultations with value-added resellers (VARs) help with IT/OT.

We help manufacturers secure their industrial networks to ensure continuity, resilience and safety of their operations. We help gain visibility into their industrial assets and build comprehensive OT security capabilities while utilizing Cisco industrial networking and security products.

At the heart of our Cisco solution is Cisco Cyber Vision, a software solution that inventories industrial assets, identifies their vulnerabilities and monitors their application flows. You can extend IT security to the OT domain through seamless integration and easy deployment.

The Cisco Connected Factory — architectures, technologies, capabilities and services for industrial markets — allows Malisko to offer these solutions:

  • Connected architecture: Malisko can implement Cisco solutions with Rockwell Automation architecture via Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE). The Cisco Connected Factory Architecture is used by organizations with 100 to 100,000 IP-connected devices.
  • Unified wireless: Factory Wireless reduces costs, supports decision making and increases output through mobile control visibility, wireless tooling, asset tracking and automated guided vehicles (AGVs).
  • Energy management: Factory Energy Management uses intelligent Internet of Everything (IoE) applications to streamline data flow between plants and data systems. This technology gives you real-time visibility into energy information use.
  • Integration and automation: The Factory Automation solution is a single network of various manufacturing systems, including zones, converging sensors, cells and machines.
  • Network access security: Factory Security is an architecture that enhances digital and physical security through tailored strategies. This solution controls access to the plant network based on the user’s identity, location and device.
