Unpacking the Challenges of Network Security in IT and OT Environments

Cyber Attacks on critical infrastructure have been on the rise for the last decade, accelerated in recent years by the covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. In 2021, approximately 90 percent of manufacturing organizations had their production or energy supply hit by some form of cyberattack.
Amid this backdrop, one of the biggest mysteries is this: how to safeguard the giant technologies at these interfaces from relentless cyber threats? It's no longer enough to have a moat around your servers — the proverbial castle approach. The barbarians, as cyber criminals are often depicted, are not just at the gates; they're already inside the castle, seeking a moment of distraction to launch their assault.

Harnessing the Power of Open Disaggregated Networking to Speed up Broadband Rollout

Providing access to high speed networks has long been a priority for Governments and enterprises alike. The UK Government has set ambitious targets to have gigabit capable broadband coverage to 85% of the country by 2025. In the US, the FCC has pledged $60bn in grants to help bring broadband to rural areas and to rip and replace unsecure equipment. In Germany, the federal Government has committed €12bn for broadband funding through its “grey spots” program.

So with the intent clear from Governments around the world, how can Service Providers harness open networking to speed up deployments and cut costs?
