Top IAM Solution Providers 2023

The cyber threat situation is intensifying. With the increasing level of connectivity and software integration, Operational Technology (OT) is becoming more accessible to cyber criminals. Endian, a leading security manufacturer in the field of Industry 4.0, recommends ten measures to optimize the security level in OT.

“The challenges in OT security are quite different from those in a typical IT environment,” says Endian CEO Raphael Vallazza. “The lifecycles of industrial equipment are many times longer than those of IT equipment. As a result, machine parks within a company are often very heterogeneous, and that makes it difficult to have uniform updates of the operating system, firmware and antivirus software, which is so heavily dependent on being up to date.”

Customer authentication is necessary for all applications, but its development requires specific knowledge. FusionAuth finds a solution to the issue of constructing crucial user security without detracting from the main program.
