Maritime Drilling Rig Operator

Maritime Drilling Operator Enables Remote Rig Access and Management with Fortinet Secure SD-Branch for OT

The company benefits from secure remote access to its rigs and complete visibility of all associated OT systems. With logging and indicators of compromise (IOC) fully integrated with the customer’s SOC, its internal security team is much better equipped to identify and mitigate threats.


Advances in operational technology (OT) are enabling new use cases for industries like maritime drilling. However, as rigs become increasingly connected, their exposure to cyberattacks is growing. And given the nature of maritime drilling, successful cyberattacks represent significant safety and environmental risks, in addition to the general financial and reputational challenges faced by all companies.

For one maritime drilling operator, it addresses this OT security challenge with Fortinet’s OT solution to secure access, secure against cyberattacks, and enable remote monitoring and management. In doing so, the company achieved certifications that made its assets more valuable, enhanced safety, and gained operational efficiencies among other benefits.
