The Nozomi Networks App for QRadar Helps Security Teams Extend OT Security and Visibility Across IT, OT and IoT Assets in Their Networks

The OT/IoT Security Challenge

The convergence of IT and OT has created a unique challenge for security teams – protecting large and diverse networks comprised of connected IT, OT, IoT and cyber-physical systems, while maintaining a robust enterprise-wide security posture. That, plus increases in targeted malware campaigns have made network-wide OT/IoT visibility an imperative.

The Nozomi Networks/IBM QRadar Solution

The answer lies in creating a consolidated view into IT and OT environments.

Nozomi Networks and IBM Security have done just that – by integrating the Nozomi Network Guardian OT and IoT visibility and monitoring solution, with IBM QRadar’s security information and event management (SIEM) capabilities.

In a single platform, the Nozomi Networks/QRadar solution delivers real-time visibility into the state of the entire OT/IoT environment, and identifies potentially malicious activity happening within it.

How Nozomi Networks and IBM QRadar Work Together

Centralized Visibility and Correlation Supports Rapid Incident Remediation

The Nozomi Networks QRadar App, available in the IBM X- Force App Exchange, is a free extension for the IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform.

It delivers out-of-the-box rules and algorithms that plug directly into the QRadar advanced analytics engine. This fully integrated solution provides real-time visibility and threat detection for OT and IoT networks, as well as alert aggregation and prioritization.

The Nozomi Networks solution extends visibility across OT and IoT assets and provides context around changes and anomalies that occur on the network. Upon deployment, it creates an inventory of OT and IoT assets, and continuously monitors the network for vulnerabilities and threats. This information is then “normalized” and passed to the IBM QRadar SIEM platform, for coordinated IT/OT/IoT threat management.

IBM QRadar and the IBM Security Platform leverages data from Nozomi Networks’ AI-based hybrid threat detection and visibility capabilities. 

Combining Nozomi Networks visibility and monitoring information with data collected in IBM QRadar allows security and IT teams to quickly view and prioritize alerts and risks across their entire environment. When high-risk anomalous activity is discovered, analysts can quickly drill down on detailed views to understand and investigate the factors contributing to the risk score. 

Together, IBM and Nozomi Networks are addressing the growing need for effective, integrated IT/OT visibility and cybersecurity.
