While enterprises have made great strides in protecting their business networks, industrial control system (ICS) networks remain at high risk. ICS networks are the critical revenue generating backbone for manufacturers, energy companies, pharmaceuticals, and many others. These networks, often referred to as “operational technology” or OT, can be found in everything from manufacturing plants to energy production and distribution and even HVAC and building management systems, are being besieged by advanced adversaries. News headlines of network intrusions into critical infrastructure are becoming more frequent, but it’s not just targeted attacks that have had a devastating impact on OT networks. WannaCry and NotPetya demonstrated that attacks that were not targeting OT can still cause extreme “collateral” damage–estimates for these two attacks alone top $10 billion.
With pxGrid, ISE and the Firepower portfolio, plus a phalanx of integration partners, Cisco has created an unmatched ecosystem for protecting enterprise business networks. Cisco customers can now extend that reach and rapidly bring their OT networks up to the same protection standard as their business networks with an integrated solution from Claroty, the leader in industrial control system security.
This new solution combines Continuous Threat Detection, Claroty’s advanced visibility, and real-time monitoring technology for OT networks, with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) and Firepower–to extend visibility deep into the lowest levels of industrial networks and enabling dynamic, automated, and active threat protection for OT environments. This powerful, integrated solution addresses several important OT network protection use cases including:
With Claroty and Cisco integration, customers can bolster their monitoring and protection, “stay ahead of the hack
