Analyst Research Report
Complete device visibility across the entire enterprise is key to secure ICS/OT
Forescout excels in ICS asset visibility according to the new Forrester Wave™: Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security Solutions, Q4 2021 and has “the broadest ICS protocol support of the vendors evaluated. That protocol knowledge also helps Forescout deploy the leading asset discovery and identification capability in this evaluation according to multiple customers”.
OT and IT systems are becoming more interconnected every day. As today’s OT/ICS networks are increasingly dependent on digital systems to carry out daily operations, new risks are multiplying. To prevent operational disruptions, you need to know and continuously monitor what is on your network, to identify vulnerabilities and detect threats in real time.
In-Depth Asset Visibility and Monitoring
Map inventories and networks for OT devices using a wide range of discovery capabilities, including patented deep packet inspection (DPI) of 130+ IT and OT protocols, continuous and configurable policy and behavior monitoring, and automatic CVE assessment.
Asset Configuration Management
Automatically collect a wide range of OT asset information and log all configuration changes for security analysis and operational forensics.
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.
Unified segmentation policy approach to mitigate threats crossing network boundaries
Real-Time Threat Detection & Incident Response
Automate threat detection, containment and remediation with alert investigation and response tools. Dashboards and widgets enhance user collaboration, and rich alert details support efficient incident response.
