Frequently Asked Questions
Industrial IoT security, or industrial edge security, refers to the combination of hardware and software features used to prevent cyberattacks from affecting edge devices.
The operational technology (OT) that controls devices in factory floors and industrial settings has converged with the information technology (IT) that workers use to move data around enterprise networks. This process, known as IT/OT convergence, has boosted efficiency and productivity across industrial organizations but has also made OT devices more vulnerable to new attack vectors from internet and cloud-based sources.
IIoT leaders and decision-makers are most concerned with securing their industrial edge networks from cyberattacks that traditionally impacted IT networks, meeting higher standards and regulatory requirements that have arisen from this new wave of cyberattacks, and managing the complexity of adding more devices to an already device-rich edge network environment, which increases the network’s attack surface.
