The Challenge of Continuous Monitoring, Tracking and Reporting
Maintaining process integrity in complex attack surface environments is difficult, but necessary.
Inability to Report or Track Errors
The ability to track and report errors stemming from ICS assets or misconfigurations is pivotal for maintaining operational stability and preventing potential disruptions.
Monitoring the performance of ICS assets allows organizations to identify anomalies, diagnose underlying issues, and take corrective actions to prevent downtime or safety risks. This proactive approach minimizes the impact of errors on critical processes and contributes to maintaining smooth operations.
Misconfigured ICS Assets Increase Security Risk
Such misconfigurations can inadvertently expose entry points for unauthorized access, cyberattacks, and operational disruptions. Inaccurate settings and configurations might undermine the overall security posture of the system, rendering it susceptible to exploitation by malicious actors.
Organizations must prioritize comprehensive configuration management to mitigate these risks and ensure the resilience of their critical infrastructure against emerging security threats.
Lack of Process Auditing Leads to Noncompliance
The persistence of legacy data systems and outdated integrations can give rise to a host of concerning issues, prominently among them being the heightened risk of data breaches and unexpected downtime.
Legacy data systems, characterized by outdated software, inadequate security measures, and incompatibility with modern standards, are particularly vulnerable targets for cyberattacks.
With Armis Centrix™, you can monitor and audit changes, track and report on errors, and create an end-to-end process for managing your vulnerabilities.
Lifecycle Management With Process Integrity
Your life cycle management is indispensable for maintaining the reliability and security of ICS assets throughout their operational lifespan. This entails systematically tracking the life cycle stages of assets, including deployment, behavior and maintenance. The effective life cycle management of your critical infrastructure ensures that assets are up to date, compliant with regulations, and in line with evolving business needs. It also prevents the use of outdated or unsupported assets that could introduce vulnerabilities to the infrastructure.
Incorporating these practices into your OT organization’s ICS asset management strategy enhances operational resilience, minimizes risks, and fosters a proactive approach to maintaining critical infrastructure. By closely monitoring changes, tracking errors, harnessing asset functionality, and implementing robust life cycle management, organizations can navigate the complexities of modern industrial environments while prioritizing security, efficiency, and long-term sustainability.
Mitigate Data Breaches and Ransomware Attacks
Track and report on errors produced by ICS assets or misconfigured ICS assets and take action.
Prevent Potential Disruption With Tracking and Reporting
The ability to track and report errors stemming from ICS assets or misconfigurations is pivotal for maintaining operational stability and preventing potential disruptions. Monitoring the performance of ICS assets allows organizations to identify anomalies, diagnose underlying issues, and take corrective actions to prevent downtime or safety risks. This proactive approach minimizes the impact of errors on critical processes and contributes to maintaining smooth operations.
Water Utility Gains Passive Visibility Into OT Assets Without Affecting Sensitive Devices
Enhanced Visibility into 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.
