The secret is out, Operations Technology (OT) is a mission-critical component of digital manufacturing enterprises. As digital enterprises become ever more connected and reliant on availability of real-time information, the critical nature of the OT stack only escalates. Reliability, data integrity, and security are top priorities on the plant floor, and specialized skillsets are required to implement and manage these networks. From design to operation, Vertech removes the risk in managing OT assets and bridges the IT/OT divide in your digital factory.


  • Assessment: Complete asset inventory, including data flow, control, remote access, network architecture review, and backup and disaster recovery review. Findings are presented with a prioritized action list to align your network with industry best practice and relevant standards.
  • Implementation: Network design and implementation services including switch and firewall programming, remote asset connections, and business network connections, all based in a deep understanding of automation assets like PLCs, instruments, and industrial PCs. 
  • Maintenance: Vertech provides annual service agreements to manage OT assets. Using state-of-the-art software and experience in OT environments, we provide active network monitoring, backup, and disaster recovery.


One of the primary ways of beefing up security is keeping up with regular system upgrades. In a traditional IT environment, patches and upgrades can be reliably pushed out to users with no productivity impact. This same practice is unacceptable for ICS networks supporting critical processes. Patches and upgrades to network and server equipment and software must be coordinated with industrial hardware and software vendors to ensure compatibility. Implementation requires detailed planning and coordination to schedule downtime for installing, rebooting, and testing the system.

Ignoring patches and updates can be just as risky by exposing your systems to cybersecurity vulnerabilities. If neglected for long, getting current can be expensive and require significant downtime. Vertech's industrial networking team keeps up on all these details for you and takes the risk out of keeping your OT systems current and secure.



  • Assessment: Our assessment includes a risk and vulnerability assessment, zone and conduit modeling, and review of cybersecurity governance documentation, logging systems, and physical security. We'll present findings with a prioritized action list to align your network with industry best practice and relevant standards.
  • Implementation: From there, we'll Implement action items from your assessment or enlist our team for your cybersecurity project, such as developing compliance procedures, network segmentation, or continuous threat detection platform implementation. Understanding unique vulnerabilities and threats to critical infrastructure networks is our specialty. 
  • Maintenance: Vertech provides annual service agreements to manage critical infrastructure cybersecurity, which could include active threat monitoring, threat mitigation, and regulatory compliance. 


For regulated industries, Vertech provides services to maintain compliance with federally mandated cybersecurity regulations. Our team will handle all the tasks and reporting required by any of the following agencies/standards:

  • NIST 800
  • ISA/IEC 62443
  • AWWA G430
