Fast and Reliable Network Appliances for IT/OT Cybersecurity Introduction During the era of digital transformation, connecting everything do benefit vertical markets to develop innovative applications with better productivity and efficiency. However, each touchpoint of the connection could be the target of the cyber-attack and make OT security defense face more threats and become more complex like IT cybersecurity.In the tech blog, we will be talking about the security infrastructure in IT/OT that could help secure all the digital data against cyber-attack.Security Infrastructure in IT/OTThorough cybersecurity infrastructure covers IT and OT. Both IT/OT security require fast and reliable network appliances for real-time monitoring, filtering, and defense. For IT infrastructure, network appliances with extraordinary performance and scalability are required to manage tremendous amount of data efficiently and flexibly. With high-speed data package transmission, better react to the threat detected can be achieve and further speed up the process of data encryption and decryption.As for OT cybersecurity, rugged design make the system reliable even if it is deployed at the edge including factory or outdoor environment. In addition, I/O ports with multiple connectivity are needed to connect everything for IoT. Moreover, the support of 5G communication can further benefit the security and enable various kinds of innovative application without compromising safety.AEWIN Featured Network Appliances for IT/OT CybersecurityAEWIN provides wide range of network appliances with features that are suitable for both IT and OT cybersecurity.AEWIN 2U high-performance network appliances powered by up to dual Intel latest Xeon SP (Sapphire Rapids) or dual AMD latest EPYC CPUs (Genoa).
