Implement Zero Trust Security to Thwart Cyber Threats
Cyber threats continue to fly under the metalworking industry’s radar as a major business disruptor. It’s time to ensure the allocation of resources to prevent these threats becomes a priority.
Posted: February 13, 2023
Cybersecurity threats, from both external and internal sources, can cause significant disruptions at your plant, resulting in unplanned downtime, operational chaos, and most importantly, lost revenue. Fortunately, there are solutions to assist in stopping the threats and risks, ensuring continued smooth operations.
Scalable, Rapid Security Deployments Across Different Operational and IT Situations
Raytheon Technologies division, Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S) (Dulles, VA), has joined with Red Hat on a zero trust security software suite. By collaborating with Red Hat, RI&S will combine its new zero trust security platform REDPro ZTX, or Zero Trust eXtend, with Red Hat OpenShift at enterprise scale.
RI&S’s REDPro ZTX is a future-proof, open standards-based zero trust integration platform that facilitates plug-and-play and vendor-agnostic applications. By pairing REDPro ZTX with Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, RI&S’s customers will have access to scalable, rapid and enhanced security deployments across different operational technology and IT environments.
“Through our collaboration with Red Hat, we are able to rapidly deploy REDPro ZTX to our customers all the while offering them the stability and scalability inherent in their Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform,” said John DeSimone, president of Cybersecurity, Intelligence and Services at Raytheon Intelligence & Space.
REDPro ZTX is designed to accelerate enterprise-scale rollouts of zero trust and cover a wide variety of deployment scenarios, including tactical edge, on premise, and multi-cloud environments. It also provides comprehensive, multi-level protection across all pillars of zero trust. Its robust, NIST 800-207 Zero Trust standard-compliant, open architecture provides users with the ability to select and rapidly deploy solutions that best fit their organization’s needs.
By pairing REDPro ZTX with Red Hat OpenShift, organizations that use REDPro ZTX can accelerate their zero trust adoption journey, lower their technical risk, reduce cost and simplify security operations — while accessing an extensible, open, future-proof zero trust platform and avoiding vendor lock.
