Whether upstream, midstream or downstream, IXDen is used to secure the information coming from critical sensors and other IoT hardware solutions.
In Deloitte’s “Protecting the connected barrels”, the cyber threat posed to databased links highlights some of the challenges facing the industry, particularly in the IoT environment.
Whether it’s upstream drilling sensors, midstream transportation systems or downstream refining and distribution sensors, O&G IoT systems are increasingly in the spotlight for being vulnerable to cyber attack.
Attacks are growing in sophistication, frequency and impact – and smart O&G companies are securing data at its source, at the sensor and IoT level.
Sensors and programmable logic controllers often need to perform their tasks with 24/7 availability as one of their primary attributes, followed by integrity and confidentiality. The most effective way to secure these time-critical systems, impacting decision making and operational responses across the organization, is with a solution that secures them at their source.
Given these challenges, a solution is required that ensures the integrity of data-at-source, without compromising performance.
IXDen is used within the G&O industry to secure sensors and other IoT devices, and ensure data integrity without compromising performance.
IXDen software is device- and network-agnostic. It works with any IoT device, any network, and any hardware.
