Traditionally, cybersecurity has been viewed as an information technology (IT) problem — not an operational technology (OT) concern. That’s because many OT systems were never connected to the outside world, so security attacks were internal rather than external. However, now industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are converging with IT environments. This new landscape now exposes the manufacturing technology sector to both IT-based attacks and OT exploits, making it a target for hackers involved in terrorism, cyber warfare, and espionage.
While companies strive to maintain operational efficiency, enhance productivity, and adhere to compliance mandates, they can’t overlook cybersecurity. ColorTokens Xtended ZeroTrust™ Platform enables enterprises to protect vital OT systems by simplifying the security of complex OT environments. The platform’s versatility and intuitive UI also empower IT security staff to strengthen OT defenses — so there’s no need to learn a new, OT-specific security tool.
