Understanding My System Vulnerabilities

The Challenge

How Do You Know Which Devices on Your Network are Vulnerable?

Industrial networks contain thousands of devices from a variety of vendors. Unfortunately, most of those devices aren’t designed for the level of security required in an IIoT world. 

Many ICS devices are in fact insecure by design – lacking authentication, encryption, and other security standards that typically apply to IT applications and systems.

Which leaves you wondering – which devices on my network are vulnerable and in need of special protection? And, which ones require firmware updates or other actions to close the door on cyber risks?

The Solution

Automated Vulnerability Assessment Identifies At-risk Assets

The Nozomi Networks solution addresses this operational challenge by automatically identifying your system vulnerabilities.

Utilizing the U.S. government’s NVD (National Vulnerability Database) for standardized naming, description and scoring, it rapidly determines which devices are at risk.

To help your security team prioritize high level exposure points, the solution displays all vulnerabilities by vendor, severity level and more in a dedicated view. Plus, it offers drilldown on each vulnerability for deeper troubleshooting and remediation assistance.

Automated vulnerability assessment helps you rapidly identify device vulnerabilities down to the individual asset level.

Automated ICS Vulnerability Assessment

Guardian identifies all known vulnerabilities for devices on your network, while Smart Polling uses low volume, active technologies to identify non-communicating assets, giving you visibility into rogue devices that don’t belong. And, it gathers extensive information about all assets, including operating system, firmware, patch levels and more, to help you identify weak spots before they’re exploited.

More Operational Visibility & Cyber Security Challenges

Automating My Asset Inventory

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

Improving Situational Awareness

Without visibility into my entire oil & gas network and its activities, it’s hard to effectively monitor, manage and secure it.

Preventing Unplanned Downtime

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