Predix Platform: Secure by design

From the moment data leaves an asset to the moment it is used in a cloud application, ensuring the availability, validity, and integrity is a primary concern for digital industrial companies. That’s why security is embedded in every layer within Predix Platform. 

Security design principles

  • icon for UI


    Building security into the design of the entire platform.

  • Data Centers icon


    Extending that security into the application development process.

  • Operations

    Executing a 24/7 security operations center for continuous monitoring and response.

Security at every level

Support for various data governance, federation, and privacy needs are included, as well as stringent security practices that encompass perimeter security, data security, and access control.

Secure platform and applications

GE's secure development lifecycle (SDLC) framework includes tools, security-related guidelines, and processes that help to secure Predix Platform-powered applications and  services during the development  process. This empowers developers to:

Apply the  appropriate  architecture  and  design.


Understand  threats and choose  the right controls for protection.


Conduct proper security  testing.


Remediate  vulnerabilities  before production deployment.

Governance, compliance, and certification

Monitoring systems for cyber security | GE Digital

GE Digital's holistic approach comprises international standards, security controls from vertical markets, and regional variations. Predix Platform helps to ensure that an organizations fine grained controls (specific to geography or industry) are in place, validated, and audit-ready. This removes the cost for an organization to design and build their own security controls. Predix Platform is built on a common infrastructure governance model based on ISO 27001/2, NIST 800-53, and FIPS 140-2.

Continuous monitoring and incident response

Predix Platform is continuously monitored by security analysts for anomalies and suspicious events that may require incident response. GE Digital’s Incident Response Program, including on-going training, table-top exercises, pen testing, and vulnerability management, is enhanced by its threat intelligence program. Predix Platform incident responders handle end-to-end coordination with stakeholders for a swift, deterministic incident response from incident notification, investigation, forensics, and close-out.
