OT Security Solutions

Using hardware and software to monitor and control equipment, infrastructure, and physical processes are referred to as operational technology (OT). These systems are widely used in sectors that need high precision and dependability. Asset-intensive industries, such as security and defence, transportation, and manufacturing, rely heavily on operational technology systems. OT systems can be deployed in several ways. For example, they can be installed on physical devices (such as machines or vehicles) or embedded within IT systems. Alternatively, they can be accessed through a remote server hosted by the organisation. OT solutions are also commonly used with other security technologies, such as firewalls and intrusion detection/prevention systems. Since OT systems are linked to the internet for access and management, they must be safeguarded from cyber attacks. Cybercriminals can get access to sensitive data or even directly to equipment and create chaos, resulting in financial loss and even death. Imagine a cybercriminal hacking into the computer systems of a manufacturing unit and changing a production recipe or gaining access to airport systems and causing planes to crash. Such attacks can harm a company's reputation and result in serious legal action. Having OT Security is essential for protecting your organisation and all your consumers who utilise your product.

Why do businesses need OT security?

Traditionally, OT security was not considered necessary

Since businesses dealing with sensitive information would not connect their systems to the internet. Most system attacks were the product of either rogue inside personnel or an error. Some of the reasons why critical infrastructure sectors require OT security are as follows:

OT Security Solution

Increased security risks

Anyone with a network connection can access modern internet-enabled OT systems. This puts organisations at risk of increased cyber attacks and poor system performance owing to communication disruptions or data loss.

Increased efficiency losses

Businesses lose potential sales and revenue streams when critical activities are disrupted. Furthermore, interrupting processes can lead to inefficient judgements and improperly followed procedures. Both of which can have a long-term detrimental influence on organisational stability.

Increased data theft

When sensitive data is stored on OT systems, it is vulnerable to illicit access. If the data falls into the wrong hands, it could be used to blackmail or extort other organisations.

Increased risk of insider threats

Employees with access to OT systems are often given more discretion and authority than their non-OT counterparts. This makes them prime targets for criminal activities such as theft or sabotage.

How can Mindfire help with OT security?

Mindfire's OT security solutions help safeguard your organisation's systems from cyber-attacks while enhancing productivity.

This means your system will remain functioning while you carry out ongoing tasks, lowering the danger of efficiency losses and data theft. Our OT security services assist you in the following ways:

Detect and block spyware and malware

Our AI technology can identify and block malicious software that could compromise your OT systems.
