Security is often the first place IT and OT teams meet. There are always kinks to iron out, and ensuring a strong security posture is paramount regardless of the teams involved.
Barak Perelman's picture
The same cloud technology that has exposed OT networks to external threats is now providing an alternative for protecting organizations when the physical deployment of OT security equipment is not practical.

Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) and machine learning (ML) once seemed stranger than fiction, but are now playing a growing role in industrial environments.
Barak Perelman's picture
Since Building Management Systems (BMS) are integrated with and interconnected to both hardwired and cloud based solutions, as well as third party applications, their attack surface is large and getting larger.
