As the size of the remote workforce surges, network administrators of operational technology (OT) networks find themselves on the front lines of enablement.
Galina Antova's picture
Adversaries can enter through IT networks and remain undetected within an OT environment for months or even years, looking for subtle ways to undermine operations and create havoc.

Security is often the first place IT and OT teams meet. There are always kinks to iron out, and ensuring a strong security posture is paramount regardless of the teams involved.
Barak Perelman's picture
The same cloud technology that has exposed OT networks to external threats is now providing an alternative for protecting organizations when the physical deployment of OT security equipment is not practical.

An insider breach targeting OT and IoT systems has the potential to shut down electrical grids, contaminate water supplies and otherwise destroy a nation’s infrastructure.

Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) and machine learning (ML) once seemed stranger than fiction, but are now playing a growing role in industrial environments.
