NIST Manufacturing Profile
Secure peer-to-peer connectivity and micro-segmentation meets the
NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) requirements
What our Manufacturing Customers Experience
Reducing Cybersecurity Risk is Costly and ComplexThe main challenge our customers encounter when meeting the CSF requirements is the cost and complexity of deploying, maintaining, and auditing traditional IT solutions across separate enterprise, remote, and cloud infrastructures. The time, expertise, and budget needed to provision and manage connectivity and segmentation for every system is impractical, yet still doesn’t prevent hacker reconnaissance and lateral attacks.
Micro-segmenting devices across a flat Layer 2 network
Different security and networking architectures for IT, virtual, and cloud
Ongoing IP addressing issues and conflicts across the network
Legacy equipment and industrial IoT devices were built without security
Inability to protect against horizontal L2-L4 network attacks
Lack of segmentation gives 3rd party vendors unfettered network access
Complex audits of individual firewall rules, ACLs, and VLANs
Coordinating between IT and OT teams
Simple Segmentation and Compliance for Manufacturing NetworksOur customers have eliminated the complexity, attack vectors, and costs associated with traditional IT solutions by adopting an identity-centric model for manufacturing environments that’s simpler and more secure. With IDN, you can deploy secure and micro-segmented networks in minutes, rather than days or weeks compared to traditional IT solutions. And even better, the cost is a fraction of those alternatives. Now you can easily align cybersecurity activities with business requirements, risk tolerances, and resources.
Business Impacts of Traditional IT Solutions vs Tempered NetworksOur customer was able to securely connect 3 manufacturing plants with 100’s of PLCs across a flat Layer 2 network - all of which needed to be segmented off the corporate network. Unlike traditional IT solutions, with Tempered Networks every manufacturing system is isolated across its own encrypted and segmented overlay network that can’t be violated.
"With Tempered Networks we were able to quickly micro-segment our ICS / SCADA environment without impacting production. In less than half a day, we were able to isolate 900 systems in one plant across our flat Layer 2 network.
Meeting NIST requirements and our own security objectives was faster and more comprehensive than I expected.”

Zero Trust Policy Orchestration and Micro-Segmentation in Minutes
Tempered Networks’ scalable orchestration engine was designed to be extremely easy to use with no advanced technical training and requires little to no change to existing infrastructure. Unlike the many complex, fragile, and disruptive steps associated with traditional IT solutions, our customers eliminate complexity, cost, and attack vectors through point-and-click policy orchestration.
First, our overlay network transparently creates cryptographic machine identities for every IDN endpoint to eliminate spoofing.
Second, every protected devices' network connections are automatically authenticated and authorized between trusted devices before data transport and exchange. Our unique network-level authentication creates verifiable trust segments that can't be discovered or exploited.
Third, all connections are transparently encrypted and encapsulated enabling non-disruptive and secure traversal across any type of network - public or private. Every device can now be quickly connected and protected across any LAN or WAN, segmented across any network and made invisible to hackers.
Point-and-Click Simple ManagementTrusted end-to-end connectivity with point-and-click simplicity to add, disable, and revoke machines.
Verify Compliance Quickly and EasilyThe Visual Trust Map verifies connectivity and segmentation, delivering simple compliance reporting.
