Utility companies and manufacturing facilities rely on automated controllers to keep their plants running. These are typically programmable logic controllers (PLCs), which can run 24/7 for years. Such longevity can lead to complacency and the false assumption that your system will run forever. However, sooner or later you will have upgrade.
The convergence of OT and IT require modern day control systems to offer secure systems, however, everyone in the organization from the plant floor to the C-suite expect all the data for everyone all the time; even remote access via smartphones and alert notification systems.
Brown Engineers has installed multiple projects with Open Secure Automation. One platform that stands out above the rest is Bedrock Automation. Brown Engineers became a Premier System Integrator with Bedrock because of the features of their controllers which are sophisticated yet elegant in their approach to cybersecurity.
