Today’s interconnected and shared infrastructure has brought many efficiencies to both the enterprise and industrial sector. But increased network complexity can result in more vulnerabilities.
Open-protocol IT makes it easier for adversaries to access and exploit operational (OT) technologies, even in the presence of existing security defenses. Remote access points, IoT sensors, industrial control systems, and other connected devices all pose a threat and leave you open to lateral attack from these sources.
Most security solutions focus on eliminating the attack vector to prevent a breach using firewalls, IDS/IDP, and antivirus tools. This is like scanning your front door for good guests and bad guests, rather than investing in a solid bolt lock.
In this whitepaper, we explore a different approach. One that isolates your network to prevent network intrusions and contains internal malware before it spreads or causes harm.
