Industrial Control System (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks are crucial to the operation of critical infrastructure facilities such as power grids, water treatment plants, and oil and gas refineries. However, these networks are increasingly becoming targets for cyber-physical attacks. To help asset owners combat this, we have released a new and innovative ICS/SCADA monitoring sensor called OTNetGuard™. OTNetGuard is designed to capture analog, serial, and IP ICS/SCADA communications passively and securely. Combined with Cynalytica’s AnalytICS Engine capabilities to provide ICS communications deep packet inspection, advanced analytics and monitoring it can also easily integrate with third party SIEM and SOAR platforms.
Features and Benefits
OTNetGuard is designed to provide comprehensive monitoring of ICS/SCADA networks. Some of the features and benefits of this innovative sensor include:
Passive Monitoring: OTNetGuard is a passive monitoring sensor, meaning it does not send any data packets to the ICS/SCADA network. It cannot interfere with the operation of the network, ensuring that it operates normally.
Secure Communication: OTNetGuard ensures that data is transmitted securely from the ICS/SCADA network to the monitoring platform. This reduces the risk of cyberattacks and safeguards that sensitive data is kept secure.
Comprehensive Monitoring: OTNetGuard can capture analog, serial, and IP ICS/SCADA communications. Hence, it can capture all communications on the network, giving you a complete picture of what is happening in the environment.
Easy Integration: OTNetGuard can easily integrate with third party SIEM and SOAR platforms, making it easy to use your existing monitoring infrastructure and tools to analyze the data captured.
Real-time Alerting: OTNetGuard can send real-time alerts to your security team when it detects anomalous activity on the ICS/SCADA network. This enables your team to respond quickly to potential cyber threats.
OTNetGuard’s unique value proposition is its ability to capture all ICS/SCADA communications. This is critical because many existing monitoring solutions only capture IP-based communications, leaving analog and serial communications unmonitored. By capturing all communications, OTNetGuard provides a complete picture of what is happening on the network, enabling your security team to detect and respond to potential cyber threats quickly.
OTNetGuard is a new and innovative ICS/SCADA monitoring sensor designed to provide comprehensive monitoring and situational awareness of critical infrastructure facilities. Its passive monitoring approach ensures that it does not interfere with the operation of the network, and its secure communication protocols ensure that data is transmitted securely. OTNetGuard’s ability to capture all ICS/SCADA communications sets it apart from other monitoring solutions. This allows security teams to detect and respond to potential cyber threats quickly, reducing the risk of cyberattacks on critical infrastructure facilities.
