Operational technology (OT) organizations across many industries are using technology to transform their business, but these benefits can lead to increased risks as well. 


Granting third-party contractors and remote employees remote access to OT systems presents a unique challenge because these remote endpoints are often unable to have endpoint security agents installed, leaving the OT network vulnerable to misuse and other insider threats.  


FortiSRA helps OT organizations implement secure remote access, mitigating the risk associated with maintaining external access to critical OT resources. FortiSRA is an agentless solution, so OT organizations can employ remote protections without having to deploy a software agent on third-party and remote employee endpoints.
