Operational Technology (OT) consists of hardware and software that are designed to detect or cause changes in physical processes through direct monitoring and control of devices. As companies increasingly embrace OT, they face a dilemma as to whether to keep these new systems independent or integrate them with their existing IT systems. As IT leaders evaluate the alternatives, there are 5 key barriers to IT/OT integration to consider.
Business Process Knowledge
Manageability & Support
Dependency Risk – Two of the key challenges of enterprise IT environments are managing the complex web of dependencies and managing the risk of service impact when a dependent component fails or is unavailable. With traditional IT, the impact is typical to some human activity, and the user is able to mitigate impact through some type of manual activity. For OT, companies must be very careful managing the dependencies on IT components to avoid the risk of impacting physical processes when and where humans are not available to intervene and mitigate the situation.
Management of OT Data – The data produced by OT devices can be large, diverse in content, time sensitive for consumption and geographically distributed (sometimes not even connected to the corporate network). In comparison, most IT systems have some level of tolerance for time delays, are relatively constrained in size and content and reliably connected to company networks, making them accessible to the IT staff for data management and support.
Security – IT systems are a common target for malicious behavior by those wishing to harm the company. The integration of OT systems with IT creates additional vulnerability targets with the potential of impacting not just people and but also physical processes.
Segmentation of IT
Enterprises cannot move to the cloud quickly enough. In fact, Gartner estimates that by 2020, “cloud-first” and “cloud-only” will be standard corporate policies rather than exceptions.
That’s a big problem for traditional security infrastructures. There’s a hodgepodge of disparate, disconnected security products that were not made to secure the cloud. Some vendors have “cloud-washed” their products, but these deliver questionable value. In real-world situations, these products perform poorly, lack critical functionality, and cannot provide the visibility time-strapped security teams require to be effective.
ProtectWise and Ixia make it easy to secure workloads in the cloud, including multi-cloud environments, in addition to traditional on-premises networks. Running entirely from the cloud, the ProtectWise Grid delivers pervasive visibility via automatic real-time and retrospective threat detection, long-term retention of full-fidelity packet capture (PCAP) and unlimited forensic exploration. Ixia CloudLens™ simplifies capture of network traffic from public cloud, virtual, or physical environments and delivers it to The ProtectWise Grid seamlessly. Through this integration, ProtectWise and Ixia give security teams a single solution for end-to-end visibility across heterogenous public cloud, enterprise, and hybrid environments.
Attend this webinar and learn how easy it is to secure the cloud with the joint ProtectWise-Ixia solution and:
Why security in mixed- and multi-cloud environments can be difficult
How moving to the cloud limits visibility for legacy security solutions
How a modern approach to security provides pervasive visibility
In this highly topical interview, I get to question Frederic Van Haren about a number of big data and HPC storage topics. For years, before the world even called it big data, Frederic was responsible for some of the biggest and fastest growing big data/HPC analytical datasets in the world, actively used by large teams of highly advanced speech-to-text researchers with cutting edge analytics, and in global production operations for a variety of well-known applications.
I ask Frederic for some of his hard-earned insights and best practice advice for those looking to implement big data storage in their enterprises for analytics, data lakes, and whatever the future may bring. We also get in some questions about what IT folks should do for their careers, and what to focus on first in these kinds of projects.
