Industrial Automation in Mining Environments
We understand IT
and OT (and their
IT and OT convergence is transforming mining in ways previously not imagined. One result is that all
facets of the industry are investing in digital technology. As a leader in enterprise and industrial
networking, Cisco is uniquely positioned to help unite IT and operations for digitization initiatives that
save money, increase safety and security, and improve operations.
How do OT and IT Differ?
Connect IT and OT
OT security requires
more than just
Mining operations are a rich target for Cyberattacks, given the expanded attack surface across
connected assets. Processing plants also risk physical damage, facility downtime, and breaches of
confidential data and intellectual property. Cisco industrial security will help you not only segment the
OT environment, but also detect suspicious traffic flows, policy violations, and compromised devices.
As a result, you can reduce risks across all traffic—both unencrypted and encrypted—by
understanding how, when, where, and why users and devices connect to your network.
