CHALLENGE

Effectively Monitoring My ICS Network

The Challenge

Staying on Top of Network and ICS Monitoring

In the world of manufacturing, one small change or networking issue can have a significant effect – on product quality, production uptime and even plant safety. Staying on top of what’s happening in your industrial control network, and responding to changes fast, is mission critical.

But you can’t monitor and manage what isn’t visible and documented. Do you really know what devices are on your network, and how many there are? Which ones are actively communicating and what protocols they’re using?

To spot and troubleshoot networking and communication issues that threaten reliability, you need real-time visibility into your assets, connections, communications, protocols and more.

The Solution

Using Real-time Network Visualization to Improve Situational Awareness

The Nozomi Networks solution addresses this common operational visibility challenge through real-time network visualization and monitoring.

As soon as it’s deployed, Guardian™ begins analyzing your network traffic, using the data to build a live, interactive visualization of your system. The breadth and depth of information is often surprising, giving you visibility into aspects of the ICS you weren’t previously aware of. Plus, you can easily drill down for more details.

An extensive amount of useful information is available, including:

  • A macro view of the entire industrial control network, that is easily changed to show zones, topology, nodes, links, sessions, and traffic
  • The ability to navigate and filter by different subnets and network segments
  • The role of each node and the traffic between nodes
  • The protocols used to communicate between nodes and between zones
  • Network traffic information such as throughput, protocols and open TCP connections
  • The detailed attributes of endpoints and connections

The Nozomi Networks solution provides comprehensive visibility into your industrial network and ICS assets. It helps you manage and monitor your system in a highly efficient way, identifying risks to reliability, and making it easy to troubleshoot problems.

Guardian delivers advanced network visualization and reliability monitoring capabilities. It helps you spot and investigate system changes and problems, and avoid expensive production downtime.

More Operational Visibility & Cyber Security Challenges

Keeping My Production Lines Running

Unplanned downtime can cost millions in lost production capacity, and create inventory headaches that hit my bottom line.

Integrating Our IT/OT Security Efforts

To close security gaps and protect my manufacturing processes against disruption, I need to leverage the expertise of IT.

Applying Cyber Security Best Practices

To build cyber resiliency and reduce risk, I need to embrace standards like the NIST cyber security framework, IEC 62443 and more.
