In the manufacturing sector, IT is actively used in OT/ICS (industrial control system) environments and due to an increasing number of connected IT and OT devices, the attack surface is rapidly expanding. This creates an increasingly complex environment that often leaves companies exposed. Cybercriminals attacking OT can cause significant damage, for example shutdowns, equipment damage, and the loss of financial assets, reputation, and intellectual property.
Manufacturers should implement security that combines technology optimized for IT as well as OT, so they can centrally manage cyber defense without interrupting operations. At Trend Micro, we have expertise in both areas. We connect OT Security solutions (TX-One) to Vision One to create a single security platform for IT and OT.
