Industrial control systems (ICS) can be incredibly complex. Every system is different and has different needs.


Direct Technologies has the expertise to understand both IT and OT, and knows that cyber security is only as good as the level of risk and threat monitoring.

We proactively monitor your network 24/7/365, installing updates and patches, checking for viruses and malware, and real-time alerting informs us of potential issues, backup failures, or other system threats.

Through our partnerships with next-generation best-in-class networking security companies like Nozomi and Fortinet, Direct Technologies can provide you best-in-class security solutions customized for your specific industrial installation. We work with you to determine your issues, concerns, and specific needs, and walk with you from inception to deployment.

We also know that different size operations have different budget constraints. We can accommodate any budget while still offering the best possible level of protection to meet your needs. Here are a few examples of potential deployments:
