OT Cybersecurity: Reduce Operational and Security Risk in OT/ICS and SCADA Environments

Digitalization of industrial processes has accelerated the convergence of IT, IoT and OT assets and networks, increasing complexity and interdependence as well as the attack surface of previously isolated OT and ICS networks. With industrial environments increasingly dependent on enterprise systems for production, you need a holistic approach to automated asset discovery, risk assessment and governance that helps avoid downtime and ensure regulatory compliance.

Capabilities

To secure critical infrastructure and manufacturing sites, organizations need to gain visibility beyond their OT environments and complete situational awareness across their entire digital terrain. The ability to continuously assess all device types – IoT, OT and IT – and immediately prioritize mitigation with automated responses is fundamental to ensuring even vulnerable OT/ICS systems operate securely without disruption. Manage your security and operational risk with ICS-specific threat intelligence and lay the foundation for a zero trust architecture with powerful automation delivered by Forescout Continuum Platform.

OT:ICEFALL - A Decade of Insecure-by-Design Practices in OT

Forescout’s Vedere Labs has discovered a set of 56 vulnerabilities affecting devices from 10 operational technology (OT) vendors caused by insecure-by-design practices in OT. The affected products are known to be prevalent in industries such as oil and gas, chemical, nuclear, power generation and distribution, manufacturing, water treatment and distribution, mining, and building automation. Many of these products are sold as “secure by design” or have been certified with OT security standards.

Automatically and continuously maintain your asset inventory

Visualize and continuously assess all connected assets, their configurations, communication and process behavior, and vulnerabilities. Use hybrid detection methods including passive, active and network location to quickly get a complete inventory of all IT, OT and IoT connected assets.

Reduce downtime with proactive maintenance and faster MTTR

Diagnose process behavior and identify network misconfigurations and operational errors before they lead to downtime. Have all asset configuration and process behavior details at hand to improve process efficiency and resilience. Use enterprise integrations to automatically raise ITSM tickets, manage change requests and initiate further response activities.

Streamline compliance and effortlessly implement best practices

Simplify compliance efforts for key standards, including NERC CIP, EU NIS Directive, NIST CSF, IEC 62443 and TSA Pipeline Security by leveraging powerful dashboards, analytics, and reporting tools. Leverage MITRE ATT&CK for ICS classification to enable efficient incident response.

Manage your security perimeter and build your Zero Trust foundation

Manage the increasing attack surface by adopting a unified segmentation policy approach to mitigate threats crossing IT/OT network boundaries, limit the blast radius and keep vulnerable OT assets operating securely. Monitor third-party technicians and remote employees as they connect to your networks and automatically verify security posture before granting access to critical assets.

Leverage 12+ years of ICS/SCADA experience for threat detection & incident response

Detect any threat to operational continuity, from operational issues to advanced cyberattacks, and use actionable insights to prioritize response and initiate next steps automatically – from creating a SOC or ITSM ticket to segmenting vulnerable devices. Leverage OT- and IoT-specific threat intelligence and MITRE ATT&CK for ICS classification to enable continuous threat detection and automate containment, remediation and efficient incident response workflows.
