Cyber-Physical Security for Airports & Airlines

Behind the scenes, airports are an intricate web of IT, OT and IoT systems that keep everything running smoothly. IT-related cyberattacks such as data breaches and ransomware are well-known threats. But it’s the less protected OT and IoT systems that pose even greater risks. If attacked, the losses could threaten not only operational continuity but public safety. As critical infrastructure, airports must comply with strict regulations such as the TSA Security Directives and NIS2.

Nozomi Networks knows OT and IoT like no other cybersecurity vendor. We’re the leading provider of visibility, vulnerability management and security monitoring solutions for airports. Some of the largest airports in the world rely on us to keep their operations reliable and secure.

The Connected Airport

From baggage handling and passenger screening to approach lighting and instrument landing systems, OT an IoT plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety, efficiency and reliability of airport operations.
