The Importance of Comprehensive Asset Discovery and Network Insight for Cybersecurity

Unlock the full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) while safeguarding your network from cyber threats.

This paper delves into the critical first step of achieving consistent security in modern heterogeneous network environments: visibility. In today’s interconnected landscape, bridging the gap between IT, OT, and IoT is crucial. Unknown devices and traffic on the network are no longer acceptable, as they create security blind spots, reduce efficacy, hinder zero trust adherence, and compromise the digital transformation journey.

In this white paper, you’ll learn:

  • The challenges of securing unique devices and traffic over dissimilar network architectures
  • The interdependence of IT, OT, and IoT security postures and its implications
  • The importance of visibility in identifying and categorizing devices across ecosystems
  • Strategies for detecting anomalous behavior and sharing telemetry across security control points
  • The role of Network Access Control (NAC) in providing visibility and improving security posture
  • How NAC’s comprehensive view of the network enhances zero trust adherence and removes blind spots
