Secure and Democratize the Data in Your Customer’s Brownfield OT Devices Sponsored by ‎Opto 22‎

When:  Jul 7, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (CT)

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.


If you are a system integrator tasked with helping your customers get new value out of their existing equipment -- particularly as part of a digital transformation – this presentation is for you.


In this 60-minute presentation and live demo, you’ll learn to:

  1. Address cybersecurity requirements in your OT and IT networks through segmenting and zoning.
  2. Preserve and extend the value of your customer’s legacy equipment through efficient data extraction.
  3. Apply edge technology to reduce complexity, increase security and make you a control system integration Rockstar.


There will also be ample time for Q&A, so bring your questions! Know someone who would benefit from this demonstration? Invite them to attend. This session is open to members and non-members.
