The drastic increase in volume of data flow between IT and OT due to the rise of Industry 4.0 and subsequent implementation of new technologies has resulted in immense new challenges in IT-OT convergence and data security.

 

NinjaConnect ISM is a secure IT-OT convergence platform, built on the principles of NIST CSF, SDP and Zero-Trust, that provides protection against cyber security threats by enabling IT-OT to collaborate seamlessly and securely. It prevents direct exposure of OT assets, such as machines and controllers to the Internet by providing network segmentation and secure remote access to OT resources anywhere, anytime and on any device with inbuilt endpoint Data Leak Prevention (DLP).

 

In addition, enterprise grade backup feature enables OT admins to backup machine data and configuration with ease. This reduces downtime and increases productivity — in case of any fault, machines can be recovered quickly.
