Understanding Where System Vulnerabilities Lie


How Do You Know Which Sensors, Controllers and IoT Devices are Vulnerable?

Transportation and logistics operational environments contain thousands of devices from multiple vendors. For example, assets that track equipment performance, humidity and luminosity are used in passenger and luggage screening systems, environmental and lighting controls, and so much more.

Unfortunately, most operational devices lack the built-in security required to keep passengers, data and systems safe. Many OT and IoT assets are missing the authentication, encryption, and other security standards that typically apply to IT applications and systems.

Which leaves you with more questions than answers – such as, which devices are vulnerable and in need of better protection? And, which ones require firmware updates or other actions to close the door on cyber risks?


Automated Vulnerability Assessment Identifies At-risk Assets

Nozomi Networks Solution: Vulnerabilities List Automated vulnerability assessment helps you rapidly identify which vendor’s devices are at risk, and focus your remediation efforts on top priorities.
The Nozomi Networks solution addresses this operational challenge by automatically identifying operational system vulnerabilities. It uncovers weak spots and prioritizes critical exposure points, so you can proactively address them before they’re exploited. The solution helps you answer questions such as:
  • Are devices from Vendor X vulnerable?
  • How many assets on our network are still running Windows XP?
  • Do I need to update certain devices because their firmware is vulnerable?
To help your security team prioritize high level exposure points, it displays all vulnerabilities by vendor, severity level and more – all in one dedicated view. Plus, it offers drilldown on each vulnerability for deeper troubleshooting and remediation assistance

Automated OT/IoT Vulnerability Assessment

Vantage identifies all known vulnerabilities for devices on your network, while Smart Polling goes further to confirm the specific devices with unaddressed vulnerabilities. It discovers firmware, patch level and other device details not identified with passive analysis, and confirms which ones need attention.
