Critical Protection : Exploring the growing market for Operational Technology (OT) Security

In the past two decades, the digitization of business and daily life has led to the emergence of several new players in the cybersecurity market. Industries have been going through a similar phase of digitization, which has blurred the lines between IT and operational technology (OT) as OT has been brought online. The resulting “cyber-physical” systems have created many vulnerabilities and risks that are difficult to identify in these highly complex environments.
