Extending SD-WAN To OT Environments

Thumb original eb extending sdwan ot environments

The convergence of operational technology (OT) environments with enterprise-grade information technology (IT) solutions is offering many breakthrough capabilities across industrial businesses, manufacturing, and critical infrastructure. Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is one such solution. SD-WAN can replace traditional WAN across distributed and remote deployment infrastructures with higher-performing and more affordable commodity internet connections. But this performance and cost savings comes at the cost of losing traditional WAN’s centralized security.

For vulnerable (and increasingly targeted) OT-based organizations to gain the benefits of adopting SD-WAN, they need to look for a solution with robust, integrated security that’s designed for the unique needs of these sensitive environments. A next-generation firewall (NGFW) solution that combines networking and OT-native protection offers an ideal tool for these sorts of deployments.

Building Proactive Defenses Against Advanced OT Threats

Industries that utilize operational technology (OT) are under pressure to maintain the highest levels of uptime, availability, and safety. This includes critical infrastructure (e.g., hydroelectric dams, nuclear power plants, oil and gas pipelines)—where a system failure can directly impact human lives or the environment. But as OT systems evolve to increasingly interact with information technology (IT) systems, this convergence is creating new pathways for bad actors to disrupt these sensitive environments. Plant managers and operations leader ...

The Definitive Guide to Migrating to the Cloud

To lay the foundation for modern application development, increase agility, and reduce cost, IT leaders are migrating their infrastructure to a cloud model that often spans multiple public cloud providers and their own datacenter.

Cloud migration can introduce several challenges, including:

- Time and effort to refactor applications for public cloud environments
- Lack of specialized cloud skills to run the new infrastructure
- Incompatible infrastructure across cloud providers
- Operational complexity and concerns about security ...

Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers

Gartner defines the cloud access security broker market as products and services that address security gaps in an organization’s use of cloud services. Especially designed to protect and control access to data that’s stored in someone else’s systems, CASBs deliver differentiated, cloud-specific capabilities that generally aren’t available as features in traditional security products. CASBs provide a central location for policy and governance concurrently across multiple cloud services and granular visibility into and control over user activitie ...

How to Get Future Ready Infrastructure for Hybrid Cloud and Modern Applications

Hybrid cloud and modern applications require a foundational strategy to build future ready infrastructure for long-term business impact. Yet, no enterprise wants to endure the economic and operational impact of perpetual change in order to achieve a modern IT platform and architecture.

That’s why Infrastructure & Operations leaders need to look beyond hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and consider a strategic approach to data center modernization that centers on three major recommendations:

· Build infrastructure that bridges develo ...
