IT/OT at SYNERGI-FX

Businesses who integrate security into their strategic plans are better able to respond to cyber risks and attacks on their Information Technology (IT) systems. Operational Technology (OT), resident on process control networks, is potentially more exposed to threats, as there is typically reduced emphasis on security on legacy hardware systems that operate the facilities that generate corporate revenues. This imbalance can result in serious exposure to the entire enterprise.

Risk and Exposure

Synergi-FX addresses the need to integrate relevant corporate IT policies into Industrial installations (OT) where there were Security exposures.

Data Collection and Optimization

Synergi-FX has designed custom systems that will optimize field data collection to provide decision makers with the ability to determine tactical implementation plans (TIPs) for strategic business resolutions.

Operational Enhancements

Synergi-FX has developed enhancements to Human Machine Interface (HMI) control installations to extend control of the facility to beyond the Control Room. Synergi-FX works with EPCs to create enhanced functionality for greenfield installations, integrating security and functionality into the design phase.
