Critical assets refer to IT assets owned by a company that are essential to its ability to operate and make profit. Those assets include key servers, networking devices, data storage server etc. Since critical assets are essential for day-to-day business operations, they are grown to targets of cyber-attacks. Therefore, the critical assets in a company need to be secured and protected with even stronger defense mechanisms comparing with other individual host machines.
