The Need for Endpoint Protection in Critical Infrastructure
As cyberattacks against ICS and SCADA systems become commonplace, the need for robust endpoint protection grows. The rapid growth of the internet, with its ever-increasing need for data, has made it almost mandatory that information be made available at all times.
