Shortcomings of IT-centric Remote Access Solutions
Until recently, addressing remote access demands often led to an overreliance on IT-centric solutions. Many industrial organizations end up with a patchwork of point solutions to compensate for a lack of native OT support.
Widely deployed but provide all-or-nothing access when relied on for remote connectivity to critical infrastructure environments.
Firewalls and ACLs
Cumbersome and complex to manage, increasing the risk of ransomware, spoofing, and other cyberattacks.
Jump Servers and PAM
Complicated, costly necessity to address a lack of granular policy enforcement or native device security controls.
Lack capabilities to maintain defense-in-depth across OT security layers.
The result: a poor remote access experience that impacts productivity and risks operational safety. A fragmented approach not only jeopardizes productivity gains but also creates the ideal conditions for cyberattackers and failed regulatory compliance.
Operational leaders can no longer afford to settle for all-or-nothing, reactive, or disjointed remote access.
