Top ways to strengthen protection for IoT devices in OT

Global OT systems are under attack from both recycled IT-based attacks and purpose-built OT exploits. According to one survey, 74% of OT professionals had experienced a breach in the previous 12 months. Attacks on critical infrastructure in the manufacturing sector can result in financial loss, brand reputation risk, and, in some cases, loss of life or threats to national cybersecurity.

Fortinet has been protecting OT environments in critical US infrastructure sectors such as energy, defense, manufacturing, food, and transportation since 2005. Today organizations can integrate cybersecurity protection across OT and IT environments, from the manufacturing floor to the office data center to multiple clouds, by designing cybersecurity into complex infrastructure using the Fortinet Security Fabric.
