Today, companies are storing and managing their valuable product knowledge in a PLM system, and many, on the cloud. This knowledge includes intellectual property (IP) such as CAD designs, material, and tooling information; that is of strategic importance to the businesses. With the change in the business landscape that requires constant connectivity and the consumerization of devices, there are continuously growing cyber security challenges.
