The convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) infrastructures is gaining momentum, and cybersecurity professionals are on board. A recent study found that 70 percent are supportive of OT/IT convergence. In addition, the CISO is seen as a key player, with 65 percent of respondents pointing to the CISO as the individual most responsible for a secure converged infrastructure. CISOs face a number of challenges in fulfilling these expectations, among which is securing OT endpoints. FortiEDR provides a robust solution for OT endpoint security by offering real-time threat protection both pre- and post-infection. Organizations that deploy FortiEDR on their OT endpoints benefit from faster threat responses, automated actions, and avoiding disruptions to production activities.
