Webinar: Secure and Democratize the Data in Your Customer’s Brownfield OT Devices

Hosted by the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA), Opto 22 will be presenting a webinar as part of the CSIA Master Class Demo series: Secure and Democratize the Data in Your Customer's Brownfield OT Devices.

There are millions of legacies, brownfield OT devices at your customer sites still dutifully performing the tasks they were designed for. However, these same devices are struggling to find their place in today’s digital transformation initiatives, largely due to lack of security and no support for modern IIoT protocols and payloads. 

However, with the gateway functions built into edge programmable industrial controllers (EPICs), you can now add critical cybersecurity features to your legacy systems, while simultaneously democratizing the valuable operational data they harness. Using Opto 22’s groov EPIC, this presentation will show you step-by-step how to securely protect and integrate brownfield PLCs and their operational data into a modern IIoT infrastructure.
