Advenica Recognized as a Representative Vendor in Market Guide for Operational Technology Security by Gartner
With the drive toward digitalization, Operational Technology (OT) management infrastructures and networks are faced with integrating with traditional IT solutions in order to manage costs and reduce complexity. Gartner refers to this as the IT/OT convergence. Safely and securely bridging the IT/OT gap while ensuring availability and reliability are the key considerations when thinking about OT security.
Gartner Inc., a research and advisory firm, defines operational technology as “hardware and software that detects or causes a change through the direct monitoring and/or control of physical devices, processes and events in the enterprise.” Examples of this technology include SCADA systems and process/industrial control networks.
In their May 2016 “Market Guide for Operational Technology Security report,” Gartner states that by 2020, spending on OT security will double due to increasing attacks on critical industrial infrastructure and subsequent regulatory responses.”
"We are very pleased to see Advenica included in Gartner’s OT Security market guide as a Representative Vendor in the OT Security category. We understand the challenges facing critical infrastructure today with their need to optimize production, save resources and find new ways to serve their customer base. Sharing of information without comprise is a vital component.”
