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.
ColorTokens’ Xtended ZeroTrustTM Platform Helps Resolve Challenging Issues
Heightened safety risk for on-site employees from threat actors aiming to disrupt operations with a cyber-physical attack
Unplanned interruption and outages create operational inefficiencies that cascade down distribution channels and up the supply chain
Loss of billable hours and clientele due to unscheduled downtime or unavailability of products
An ever-expanding attack surface comprised of electronic systems, cloud data storage, and an intricate network of partners
Tightening compliance requirements from regulatory authorities, plus high penalties in case of a breach
Constant pressure to provide just-in-time production in a rapidly evolving marketplace
How ColorTokens Positions Manufacturing Technology Companies for Cybersecurity Success
Minimizes the Attack Surface and Monitors for Suspicious Traffic
Get a comprehensive view of all the connections between OT and IT systems, enterprise IT network infrastructure, and the Internet. Observe real-time traffic communications between systems and components to identify risky and unnecessary paths to OT systems.
Controls Access to OT Systems with Micro-Segmentation
Block all traffic from systems and users not explicitly authorized to connect to an OT system. Isolate OT environments at a faster pace, without the need to manage rules on dozens of firewalls or network devices.
Allows Greater Visibility and Controls for Unseen Threats
Gain deep visibility into application processes to detect advanced persistent threats on OT servers and workstations. Protect OT systems from unauthorized operations, including file-less malware and remote access trojans (RATs), with application-level process controls.
Simplifies Compliance with Industrial IoT Security Standards
Demonstrate compliance with ISA99/IEC 62443, NERCCIP, NIST, and other standards in real time. Automate report creation for incidents, suspicious processes blocked, and other activities related to attacks and breaches.
