Gain comprehensive visibility and control over any ICS environment
Securing ICS requires a comprehensive understanding of an organisation’s environment, including all assets and their configuration. That’s why we offer ICS Asset Discovery and Management services, designed to help gain visibility into your ICS environment and manage assets more effectively.
Using advanced scanning and analysis tools, we conduct a thorough asset discovery, identifying various industrial control systems, network devices, servers, OT workstations, and other hardware and software components and their interactions. We capture various ICS protocols and create a detailed inventory with vital information such as asset type, location, and configuration.
Once assets are identified, we establish baseline configurations and implement proactive monitoring. Our asset management services include ongoing monitoring, reporting, and the development of performance metrics. This enables businesses to measure the effectiveness of the asset management program and continuously improve the ICS environment.
