Are You Unable to Monitor Connectivity and Track Asset Behavior Across Your OT Ecosystem?

Armis Centrix™ for OT enables organizations to tackle some of the day-to-day issues that arise from a lack of control over abnormal asset behavior and anomalous external communication.

No Real-Time Network Baseline

A large problem for OT leaders is the inability to monitor connectivity and track asset behavior – capture and visualize the communication patterns and behavior of every asset, providing a real-time network baseline. From that baseline, any abnormal or risky activity can be identified, flagged and dealt with.

Lack of Communication Visualization and Patterns

Without a clear visual representation of communication flows, teams may struggle to understand how information is disseminated, who the key stakeholders are, and the interconnections between various departments or projects.

The inability to recognize patterns within communication data means teams may miss insights that are invaluable for informed decision-making. Patterns can reveal trends in collaboration and help identify bottlenecks in processes and security threats.

Inability to Identify Malicious Behavior and Take Action

Without a network baseline and communication pattern visibility you are unable to flag and remediate risks in your network.

Anomalous external communications are being missed, misconfigurations and malicious behaviors are left unaddressed. Without this behavior monitoring and traffic analysis you are unable to identify and manage risks, actively respond to threats and optimize your security posture.

Establish the Criticality of Your Assets

Identify dependencies and applications on devices that affect the business criticality of assets (critical production PLC vs facilities PLC). A holistic approach to asset classification involves acknowledging assets owned or maintained by third-party partners and vendors. In large, sprawling OT ecosystems, reliance on external entities is common. In this way, categorizing assets that fall under the purview of third parties is vital.

Classification not only ensures that the organization maintains a clear understanding of its asset landscape, but also facilitates effective communication and collaboration with partners and vendors. Transparent sharing of responsibilities and expectations can lead to smoother operations, reduced misunderstandings, and improved service delivery.

Create Policies and Queries That Highlight Boundary Violations

Empower your organization with automated segmentation processes and intelligent recommendations.

Policies, Queries & Segmentation Designed by You, for You

Developing comprehensive policies and establishing targeted queries are critical steps in effectively identifying and highlighting boundary violations within an organization’s network and data infrastructure. These policies serve as the foundation for defining the permissible limits and access boundaries for different user roles, devices, and applications.

The most common approach for performing network segmentation today is via Network Access Control (NAC). Unfortunately, NAC systems can be complex to deploy and have poor visibility to all the devices on the network – specifically OT, IoT, and medical devices.

For network segmentation projects to succeed, complete visibility to all devices on the network and full context about the behavior and security posture of each device is necessary. Armis Centrix™ can use this contextual knowledge of each device to automatically generate segmentation policies based on the needs of each device. These policies ensure that devices have access to the resources they need and reduce their exposure to threats.

By meticulously crafting these policies, organizations can clearly delineate the boundaries that should not be crossed in terms of data access, system interactions, and network connectivity.
