The robotics industry is witnessing exponential growth, making cybersecurity a critical concern. Cybersecurity in robotics is more important than security in any other technology domain. If your phone or laptop gets hacked, data may be get leaked and your privacy may be compromised. When someone compromises a robot, your life can be at risk.

At Alias Robotics, we are dedicated to leading the charge in robot cybersecurity, ensuring safe and reliable operations across the various sectors where robots are used.

Market growth and trend

According to Future Market Insights, the cybersecurity market in robotics is expected to grow at an annual rate of 11.7%, reaching $11.6 billion by 2033. This growth is driven by the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and automation in industries like healthcare, manufacturing, defense, and space exploration.


The robotic cybersecurity market is highly competitive, with several key players making significant advances. Alongside Alias Robotics, notable competitors include:

This competitive landscape drives innovation and ensures a high standard of security across the industry.

Within this framework, Alias Robotics was founded in 2017 and by 2020 had already established itself as a leader in the cybersecurity market for robots, recognized by four independent market studies in the two years prior to 2020, despite being only three years old at that time, recognizing Alias Robotics' great potential that year.

Common threats and challenges

As Alias Robotics has proven over the past years, robotic systems are vulnerable to various cyber threats, including Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, spoofing, and man-in-the-middle attacks. These attacks can disrupt operations, steal sensitive data, and cause significant financial losses to businesses. Despite the increasing demand for cybersecurity solutions, challenges such as a lack of awareness and high costs remain. The complexity of integrating cybersecurity measures into existing robotic systems also poses a significant hurdle.

Key solutions

  1. Authentication: Ensuring only authorized entities can access robotic systems. This involves advanced user verification techniques, including biometric scans and multi-factor authentication.

  2. Secure communications: Implementing encrypted communication channels to protect data transmission between robots and control systems. Encryption protocols and secure network configurations play a crucial role in preventing eavesdropping and data interception.

  3. Risk management: Continuous assessment and patch management to address vulnerabilities. This includes regular updates and security patches to fix known vulnerabilities and protect against new threats.

Impact of COVID-19

The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of cybersecurity solutions due to the increased use of robots in critical sectors. The shift towards automation in response to social distancing measures and workforce shortages has highlighted the importance of securing robotic systems. Companies like McAfee, Skyhopper, Telefónica Tech and Alias Robotics are leading the way with innovative solutions.

Alias Robotics' unique approach

What sets Alias Robotics apart is our focus on the Zero Trust paradigm and our specialized Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP). Unlike traditional cybersecurity solutions, our Robotic Immune System (RIS) leverages AI and ML to monitor and analyze the behavior of industrial robots, identifying malfunctions, cyber-attacks, and anomalies in real-time. Our approach ensures that every action and communication within the robotic system is scrutinized and verified, significantly reducing the risk of unauthorized access or malicious activities.

Our RIS system acts as advanced, dedicated protection for robots, capable of detecting and neutralizing threats before they can cause harm. This proactive approach is complemented by tools like Alurity, a comprehensive toolkit designed to streamline cybersecurity research and development, making it easier and faster to implement robust security measures in robotics.

Broad compatibility with existing robots

Alias Robotics' solutions are designed to be compatible with a wide range of existing robotic systems and other security approaches. Our advanced technologies can be seamlessly integrated into numerous robots already in operation, ensuring that your investment in cybersecurity provides immediate and effective protection without the need for extensive modifications. This compatibility extends across various industries, making it easier to enhance the security of your robotic fleet, including the most widespread OT security solutions.


As the world becomes more automated, the importance of robust cybersecurity measures cannot be overstated. Alias Robotics is committed to securing the future of robotics with innovative solutions designed to protect against evolving cyber threats. Our unique approach, innovation and advanced technologies ensure that your robotic systems remain safe and operational in an increasingly connected world.
