LEARNING THEATER PRESENTATION
Solving the OT-IT Systems Conflict for IIoT Deployment
IT admins have two problems securing their company's networks: 1) Dumb Users 2) Smart Users...
No admins want the security problem of engineers' PCs entering their IT network, and no engineers want the process and QA risk of the office's PCs on their Operational Technology (OT) network. But why? Aren't they both hyper-diligent about the data integrity of their networks?
Smart Manufacturing has been made overly difficult because manufacturers are trying to converge systems that should be isolated from each other. Join us for a how-to workshop session to learn how an MES gateway appliance, rather than PC-based and OPC middleware solutions, protects both OT and IT network systems to deliver point-to-point communication between manufacturing devices (e.g. PLCs, vision systems) and ERP database servers (e.g. SQL, SAP).
