According to The State of IoT/OT Cybersecurity in the Enterprise, a report conducted by Ponemon Institute, organizations increasingly rely on industrial IoT devices to optimize operations and drive business growth. However, there is a tension between strategic goals and the security risks of these devices, many of which are unmanaged. Security solutions that are designed to provide better visibility and threat detection for ICS and OT devices help enable innovation and business transformation.
