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.

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 ...
