Automating My Asset Inventory

The Challenge

Creating an Accurate, Up-to-Date System Inventory

Whether you’re in oil & gas, power, manufacturing or another infrastructure industry, creating an accurate asset inventory, and keeping it current can be difficult and extremely time-consuming.

Not only do industrial networks contain a large number of devices from multiple vendors, assets are often added and changed frequently. And, these complex OT environments typically contain security and reliability blind spots you’re not even aware of.

An accurate, centralized asset inventory is essential for effective cyber security and operational monitoring.

The Solution

Automatically Track Your Industrial Assets

The Nozomi Networks solution addresses this common challenge by automatically creating an ICS asset inventory and keeping it up-to-date.

It identifies network devices, validates details and provides precise descriptions. It also monitors each asset’s metadata in real-time, collecting attributes such as:

  • Device name, type, serial number, firmware version and components
  • Asset and subpart properties: site, name, IP address, MAC address and state
  • Embedded devices such as PLCs and their inner components
  • Logical node subsystems such as circuit breakers and switches
    • Measurement points
    • PC operating system and installed software apps with version numbers

Dedicated asset views make it easy to visualize, find and drill down on device information. Industrial operators can easily add more details such as location and site.

And, our products send you alerts when changes to hardware, software and devices occur, quickly bringing process risks or potential cyber incidents to your attention.

More Operational Visibility & Cyber Security Challenges

Understanding My System Vulnerabilities

Knowing which vendor’s RTUs, PLCs and other devices are at risk would help me focus my cyber security efforts.

Preventing Unplanned Downtime

Identifying devices that are slipping out of scope would help me avoid equipment failure and costly downtime.

Spotting ICS Credential Theft

To prevent unauthorized access to my network, I need to know immediately when someone is misusing credentials.
