The business needs of Operational Technology (OT) environments are fast-changing, environments are increasingly connected to enterprise networks, and exposed to external threats. This means their security becomes strategically important for both OT and IT stakeholders. ISG takes a detailed look at these issues in their ISG Provider LensTM Quadrant Report entitled: “Manufacturing Industry Services USA 2020.”
Key takeaways include:
- Market changes necessitate OT systems are connected to enterprise networks and the Internet.
- OT cybersecurity is a top priority as cyberattacks cause system and production disruption, leading to lost revenue.
- These systems are not integrated with traditional security measures such as antivirus or endpoint protection systems.
- Security solutions that monitor and control the activities of OT equipment are a requirement.
