This IDC Perspective examines the current evolution of the IT/OT security landscape, highlighting the latest trends, challenges, and solutions that European organizations face in the market as well as the new opportunities it brings for network security vendors."Organizations embarking on their IT/OT convergence initiatives face new challenges that result from opening OT to a vast and advanced cyberthreat landscape.
