Open Your Operational Technology Infrastructure to Innovation, Not to New Risks

The Industry 4.0 trend is in full swing, and companies are actively working to connect their manufacturing operations, energy, and critical infrastructure to powerful tools for analytics and process improvement. At the same time, ransomware attacks affecting operational technology (OT) networks have increased dramatically, drawing renewed focus on OT security.

CoIP Platform enables companies to extend specific applications, such as Big Data analytics and AI-based backends, into OT networks, using a Zero Trust Application Network for ultimate security.

Block Malware Propagation in the OT Network

Supporting application connectivity needs by creating a firewall exception is risky business, because each exception expands the network’s attack surface. After years of operations, many businesses find themselves as the victims of overly complex firewall rules that may interact with each other; any modification triggers an intensive risk analysis.

CoIP Platform’s Zero Trust Application Networks provide a secure path for connecting whitelisted applications, with micro-segmentation, cloaking, and Application Interlock policies across firewalled network boundaries without changing the already-complex firewall policies. Providing access through ZTAN will allow firewall exceptions to be closed, reducing the attack surface.
