Formidable Challenges in the Oil and Gas Industry

Being designated critical infrastructure necessitates the highest standards of security, but that comes with unique challenges, especially regarding OT:

  • Many widely-distributed assets spanning multiple Purdue zones
  • Increasing cyber attacks targeting of energy infrastructure like pipelines
  • Operational assets from multiple vendors that weren’t designed to interoperate with granular access control and privileged access management

From the Oil Fields to the Gas Pump

Critical assets must be defended from costly ransomware and cyberattacks

Cyber hardening measures must comply with mandates to avoid interruptions and fines.

Operational resiliency must be maintained to protect productivity, people, and profits.

Evolving Demands Require Rethinking Cybersecurity

Oil and gas companies often rely on IT-centric tools for secure access to the Operational Technology (OT) assets at the center of energy production. However, IT-centric tools lack capabilities to secure Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and interconnected OT, IT, and Cloud environments, leading to gaps. These gaps create ideal conditions for cyberattackers and failed regulatory compliance.

With productivity and safety at risk, no oil and gas company can afford to weaken its cyber-physical security posture.

Modernize without Compromise

You can protect your operations from escalating cyberattacks and reduce regulatory burdens without slowing production. It starts by modernizing secure access to vital operational technology assets using an approach grounded in zero trust principles.

Achieve Zero Trust Access with Xage

Xage accelerates the adoption of zero trust-based identity and access management for oil and gas companies.

The Xage Fabric is purpose-built for operational technology and for securing OT-IT-Cloud interconnected environments. Its identity-centric approach eliminates the complexity of modernizing secure access to energy production systems and data. With Xage, your security teams can enact granular, just-in-time access controlled down to the asset level.

The unique mesh architecture removes any need to rip and replace your current investments or jeopardize productivity to protect your OT, IT, and cloud infrastructure.
