Secure access to OT systems for partners

Boost productivity and uptime while securing access to industrial networks for vendors

Protect operational technology from threats, with ease

With ransomware attacks up 500% in the past year, many organizations have been wary of the risk that remote partner access poses to critical operational technology (OT) systems.

Remote access solutions, like VPN, allow partners to directly access to operational technology networks (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS) with very little security controls in place. This leads to an expanded attack surface, and risk of cyber attacks.

Security breaches caused by ransomware, malware, or stolen credentials all lead to the same result: operational shut-downs that severely impact productivity and brand reputation.

The OT network is precious,
so access must be precise.

No OT network exposure – network must be invisible

Partners access authorized apps – Not the underlying network

Partners easily access OT systems without requiring a client

IT has visibility and control of what partners can and can’t access

Make business-critical OT networks
accessible, and secure

We all know that OT systems are critical to the operation of the business, and cybercriminals know that too. This makes the adoption of zero trust connectivity solutions like Security Service Edge (SSE) important as IT teams are empowered to protect the business while also promoting productivity.

“Axis security really captured the ‘kis’ module – keep it simple…I can grab this new technology, get it up, get it running and put it in the back of my mind”

Joshua Danielson, Chief Information Security Officer, Copart

What we like about Axis is that it’s easy to use zero trust policies to provide thousands of users with secure connectivity to resources, give security teams the visibility needed, and ensure that we can easily scale to support our modern workplace. Now, even as we embrace the cloud, we can still ensure our data is always accessed safely.
