IT/OT Integration and Security Services

In today’s environment, maintaining the security of plant IT and operational technology systems is critical to ensure the plant and business is protected against unintended operation – whether this be through inadvertent operation errors or external attacks. The increased integration of process control and information systems with corporate networks and use of standard network technologies has provided many benefits; however it has also exposed these systems to the external world, and increased the potential of targeted or random attacks.
