Global leaders in semiconductors have found OT zero trust to be effective as a strategy for constructing defenses during the asset planning phase. Read here for a breakdown on how OT zero trust can be deployed through these 4 stages to keep operations running smoothly.
- Onboarding: OT zero trust provides tools to make sure that any assets entering a foundry are clear of malware and that their contents are inventories.
- Staging: Patch vulnerabilities and shut down non-essential services such as system applications and user accounts to prepare assets.
- Production: Use network segmentation to strengthen network security and maintain operational integrity.
- Maintenance: This involves not only repairs and routine checks but also ongoing software configuration changes, system upgrades, and security updates.
