“Hardware and software that detects or causes a change through the direct monitoring and/or control of physical devices, processes and events in the enterprise” (Gartner, n.d.). Additionally, this is “often comprised of closed systems warranted by system vendors only as long as customers configure and deploy systems using their rigid specifications. By in large, these system vendors focus on system availability rather than security, to the detriment of good security best practices. Vendor support staff can view security controls as inhibitors to effective operations” (National Grid, n.d.).
