Services to keep network hardware and industrial computer systems up to date while safely and securely supporting the industrial processes that depend on this infrastructure.
OT network risk assessments and mitigation, and active threat detection services to keep critical infrastructure networks safe from cyber threats.
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.
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.
