SEPARATE OPERATIONAL TECHNOLOGY NETWORKS

THE FUTURE OF SMART BUILDINGS

Operational technology (OT) — including HVAC, lighting, and security — is regularly managed by IT departments alongside computers and phones. This is referred to as convergence, and it’s been seen as the simpler, cheaper approach to building management. As more OT devices are installed in buildings though, it’s become harder for IT departments to manage and secure these devices. With OT devices left unsecure and connected to the IT network, hackers can target HVAC, lighting, and the like to reach IT devices and their data.

Join our webinar on April 26 at 11 a.m. PST, where we’ll talk about the necessity of OT networks. Optigo Connect, now widely available in North America through a primary distributor partnership with Controlco, can connect thousands of devices on a property for a fraction of the infrastructure.
