Improving Situational Awareness

The Challenge

Documenting and Visualizing Your Industrial Operations

Industrial operators face the challenging task of managing, monitoring and securing a system they can’t wrap their arms around. Not only are there hundreds to thousands of assets from many different vendors to keep track of, devices are often added and changed without documentation.

Accurate visualization of your industrial network, from its components to its ongoing activity, speeds your ability to troubleshoot anomalies and respond to incidents.

The Solution

Real-time Network Visualization

The Nozomi Networks solution improves situational awareness by automatically creating an intuitive visualization of your entire network, allowing you to quickly see aspects of your industrial control system you weren’t previously aware of.

Upon deployment, the solution immediately analyzes your ICS network traffic and builds a live, interactive network graph containing extensive information, including:

  • The identity of all entities communicating over the network
  • Network traffic details such as throughput, protocols and open TCP connections
  • Devices from all vendors
  • Protocols used to communicate between nodes and zones
  • Macro views as well as detailed data on endpoints and connections
  • Visualization of multiple, geographically distributed sites (when deployed with the Central Management Console)

The solution supports drilldown, filtering by subnets and network segments, and exporting/printing the network structure and all of its details.

Plus, its unique process views help you identify operational changes before they impact reliability or cyber security. Examples include detecting a piece of equipment that’s slipping out of scope – before it fails, and identifying a process variable with a value never seen before –  that may be related to a malicious attack.

Within minutes of deployment, the solution visualizes the nodes of your industrial network, often revealing aspects you weren’t previously aware of.

Superior Operational ICS Visibility

Both SCADAguardian and SCADAguardian Advanced deliver advanced network visualization capabilities that help you improve situational awareness and deepen your understanding of the network structure and activity.

Automating My Asset Inventory

Creating an inventory of my industrial control system assets and keeping it up-to-date is extremely difficult.

Preventing Unplanned Downtime

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

Detecting Malware Before It Strikes

I need to know if a persistent threat is on my oil & gas network before it hijacks my data or disrupts my processes.
