Network Segmentation and Enforcement in your Mission Critical OT/IoT Environments

The Challenges associated with Network Segmentation in OT Environments

Network segmentation and secure remote access controls help protect OT environments yet are difficult to implement due to:

Unmanaged Assets Lead to Poor Visibility

Network visibility is crucial for teams managing OT environments to maintain a secure network infrastructure. This is especially true when it comes to unmanaged OT or IoT assets as there are likely no systems in place that can fully identify, classify, profile, and inventory those assets.

Network Access Controls Leave Security Gaps

Network segmentation protects devices and your network by grouping devices and dividing your environment into smaller (manageable) sections. Unfortunately, traditional Network Access Controls (NAC) projects can only readily identify enterprise devices, not IoT, OT and Industrial Internet of Things devices, making NAC implementation ineffective in OT environments.

Segmentation Policies are Prone to Error

Up until now, segmentation lacked automation making it a tedious, error-prone process that entails defining and constantly redefining policies to your unique environment.

Segmentation Recommendations Based on your OT Requirements

Armis Centrix™ for OT/IoT enables secured network segmentation implementation by discovering all assets, communication paths and access controls. It then builds virtual barriers that restrict unauthorized access to sensitive OT assets and mission critical systems. By limiting the scope of potential breaches, organizations can mitigate the risks posed by cyber threats, including ransomware attacks and data breaches.

Better Reporting and Policies for Segmentation Violation

With Armis you can identify device types that are not conforming to defined segmentation policies. You can also exercise risk assessment controls to generate ACLs to enable the correct segmentation of the device using existing NAC tools. With Armis, automatically push rich contextual information regarding your OT and IT environments to your existing integrated segmentation stack to streamline the management of traditionally complex solutions.

Water Utility Manages OT and IT Environments Without Affecting Sensitive Devices

 

Enhanced segmentation controls over OT Network Helps Secure and Protect Drinking Water for Millions of People

A major U.S. water utility needed device behavior and communication visibility in its sensitive OT network while ensuring service continuity. The OT network is managed separately from the IT network, yet both are under the same security umbrella. By deploying Armis in conjunction with Gigamon’s deep observability into network traffic, the security team achieved full visibility into the utility’s OT assets, along with deeper visibility into the traffic traversing the IT and OT networks.
