What is OT Security?

OT Security is different from standard IT Security. (OT stands for Operational Technology while IT is Information Technology.) OT is a type of hardware and software used to monitor and control physical devices, processes, and infrastructure. OT Security is a common form of cybersecurity used to protect Industrial Systems and networks from various attacks. OT is used across multiple industries including manufacturing, power plants, transportation, utilities, and smart city appliances. In recent years we’ve seen OT advance and converge with networked tech, meaning the need for OT security has also grown exponentially.

The illustration showcases we are living in a world where everything is digitally connected. Many factories and industries deploy OT security into their OT envieroment.

Why is OT Security Important?

As industrial systems become more connected, they also become more exposed to vulnerabilities. Recent reports from Gartner points to OT system integration with IT networks reaching 75% saturation by 2025. The high cost of industrial equipment and the devastation to businesses and communities that an attack could generate are key factors for organizations looking to protect their industrial networks. Having an effective OT strategy in place and ensuring endpoint protection will protect your processes, people, and profits while significantly reducing security vulnerabilities and incidents.

What is IT Security vs OT Security?

The main difference between IT and OT devices is that IT systems manage data, while OT devices control the physical processes and machinery. However information and operation technologies are becoming more and more connected. IT incidents are more frequent, while OT incidents can be more destructive.

Icons with gears and numbers symbolize the convergence of IT and OT.
The illustration highlights how IT-OT Convergence works in industrial systems.

What is IT-OT Convergence?

IT-OT Convergence is the melding of different IT-OT technologies into an interconnected system, spurred on by digital transformation.

Today, we see more industrial systems brought online to deliver big data and smart analytics as well as adopt new capabilities and efficiencies. IT-OT convergence gives organizations a single view of industrial systems together with process management solutions that ensure accurate information is delivered to people, machines, switches, sensors and devices.

Yet connecting an OT network to an IT one instantly exposes the OT network and all connected OT devices to the entire threat landscape. In addition, the rise of remote access to OT networks by third-party vendors further expands the attack surface and creates new vulnerabilities. Luckily, with a rise in recent infrastructure cyberattacks, there are some international OT-IT cybersecurity standards and best practices gaining traction.

OT and IT endpoint protection helps to minimize damages and deploying comprehensive endpoint protection solutions like what Gorilla offers can ensure a successful digital transformation.

Our Network Security Technology Is Different

Gorilla brings about security convergence as a governing principle to our cybersecurity products. We see how digital transformation is building robust, powerful networked businesses, but we also see the potential for cyber threats and endpoint protection. Ever-evolving malicious attacks and other risk factors stemming from the fact that some endpoints are operating on outdated software lead them to be more susceptible to hackers, which highlights the importance of solid endpoint protection and other advanced network security tools.
