Industrial sites have been increasingly reliant on the industrial internet of things (IIoT), enhancing their productivity and efficiency through the convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT). Unfortunately, cyberattacks on these sites have also become increasingly common, crippling factories and critical infrastructure facilities across industries including oil, gas, mining, chemicals, energy, manufacturing, and defense.
As with IT environments, securing OT environments from cyberthreats is critical in any industrial site. However, this challenges traditional IT security management since they use proprietary SCADA/ICS networks and devices that are both mission-critical and highly sensitive. Furthermore, OT network security is complicated by the fact that many industrial sites require remote access by vendors to provide timely support to their systems.
OT Defense Console™ helps address the complexities of protecting OT environments against cyberthreats by providing security managers with total OT visibility and the ability to deliver instant adjustments as necessary to keep the production line running smoothly.
