H2O.ai Brings H2O AI Cloud to the Snowflake Manufacturing

H2O.ai today announced the launch of H2O AI Cloud as a pre-built solution for the Manufacturing Data Cloud, launched by Snowflake, the Data Cloud company. The Manufacturing Data Cloud enables companies in automotive, technology, energy, and industrial sectors to unlock the value of their critical siloed industrial data by leveraging Snowflake’s data platform, Snowflake- and partner-delivered solutions, and industry-specific datasets.

The Manufacturing Data Cloud empowers manufacturers to collaborate with partners, suppliers, and customers in a secure and scalable way, driving greater agility and visibility across the entire value chain.

“Snowflake’s partnership with H2O.ai is part of the greater effort to give our manufacturing customers and their suppliers access to the data, applications, and services needed to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance supply chain transparency,” said Tim Long, Global Head of Manufacturing at Snowflake. “We look forward to working closely with H2O.ai to help the industry continue to embrace the increasingly digital-industrial world.”

With Snowflake’s Manufacturing Data Cloud, organizations can build a data foundation for their business, improve supply chain performance, and power smart manufacturing initiatives in today's digital-industrial world. The H2O AI Cloud solution benefits manufacturing organizations in a variety of ways, including:

  • PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE: By integrating historical, structured and unstructured data such as images from the manufacturing floor in Snowflake, the H2O AI Cloud can monitor production equipment in real-time, detect anomalies or deviations from normal operations, and predict when maintenance is needed to improve equipment uptime.
  • QUALITY CONTROL: The H2O AI Cloud allows manufacturers to perform predictive analytics with real-time monitoring, analyzing both data and product imagery, and identifying any object anomalies with high accuracy and speed.
  • SUPPLY CHAIN OPTIMIZATION: By analyzing large volumes of historical data and data from sensors, machines, and other sources, H2O.ai can optimize production processes across the entire supply chain including document processing, inventory, demand forecasting, and transportation logistics, as well as identify potential risks and inefficiencies.

“We’re excited to see our efforts address the complex challenges of the manufacturing industry, as part of the Snowflake Manufacturing Data Cloud launch,” said Rod Hamlin, SVP of Global Business Development and GM of EMEA at H2O. “H2O is focused on enabling joint customers to deliver AI solutions that are changing the industry, from predictive manufacturing design to transportation optimization.”

The Manufacturing Sector Experiences More Attacks in the Cloud than Any Other Industry

PR Newswire: | January 19, 2024

Netwrix, a cybersecurity vendor that makes data security easy, today revealed additional findings for the manufacturing sector from its survey of 1,610 IT and security professionals across more than 100 countries. According to the survey, 64% of companies in the manufacturing sector suffered a cyberattack during the preceding 12 months, which is similar to the finding among organizations overall (68%). However, it turned out that the manufacturing sector experiences more cloud infrastructure attacks than any other industry surveyed. Among manufacturing companies that detected an attack, 85% spotted phishing in the cloud compared to only 58% across all verticals; 43% faced user account compromise in the cloud as opposed to 27% among all industries; and 25% dealt with data theft by hackers in the cloud compared to 15% for organizations overall. "The manufacturing sector relies heavily on the cloud to work with their supply chain in real time. This makes their cloud infrastructure a lucrative target for attackers — infiltrating it enables them to move laterally and potentially compromise other linked organizations, as happened to one the world's top meat processing companies. Credential compromise or malware deployed via a phishing email is just the beginning of the attack," says Dirk Schrader, VP of Security Research at Netwrix. "The attack surface in the cloud is always expanding, so it's critical for manufacturing companies to adopt a defense-in-depth approach," adds Ilia Sotnikov, Security Strategist at Netwrix. "First, they must rigorously enforce the principle of least privilege to limit access to sensitive data, which ideally includes just-in-time access to eliminate unnecessary entry points for adversaries. They also need to gain deep visibility into when and how critical data in the cloud is being used so that IT teams can promptly spot potential threats. Finally, they need to be prepared to minimize the damage from incidents by having a comprehensive response strategy that is regularly exercised and updated."

Since 2006, Netwrix solutions have been simplifying the lives of security professionals by enabling them to identify and protect sensitive data to reduce the risk of a breach, and to detect, respond to and recover from attacks, limiting their impact. More than 13,500 organizations worldwide rely on Netwrix solutions to strengthen their security and compliance posture across all three primary attack vectors: data, identity and infrastructure.
