In recent years we've seen a surge in the numbers of IoT and operational technology (OT) devices appearing on IT networks. But while this technology offers many advantages it also brings new risks, both for the devices themselves and the networks they're attached to. What can businesses do to benefit from the technology but still keep their networks safe? EIA assists our customers in network segmentation as part of a larger strategic trend called 'Zero Trust' that has become a core foundational principle of cybersecurity. Unlike traditional perimeter security which is focused exclusively on keeping adversaries out of your network, zero trust assumes that adversaries are already inside your network -- and focuses instead on preventing attackers from moving laterally (East-West) across your networks to compromise critical assets. How did attackers get into your network in the first place? There are many ways for today's adversaries to bypass perimeter firewalls to gain access to your corporate and industrial networks. These include: exploiting weak credentials on internet-exposed RDP ports; email phishing attacks that install malware on users' desktops; and IoT/OT devices with default credentials that are connected directly to the internet. EIA focuses on supporting our customers in Managing and securing these devices.
