Cyber-resilient organizations not only survive adverse cyber conditions — they thrive in spite of them. Unfortunately, cyber resilience is growing increasingly out-of-reach across industrial sectors.
The culprit is the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT). Fueled by digital transformation, this vast cyber-physical web spans everything from the brownfield assets in your OT environment to the “smart” lightbulbs, HVAC systems, and even the internet-connected vending machines at your facilities.
Despite its clear business benefits, this cyber-physical connectivity is also creating new security blindspots and a growing attack surface that pose considerable risks to the availability, integrity, and safety of OT environments.
Achieving and maintaining cyber resilience amid the XIoT’s challenging security and risk conditions is far from impossible — but it does entail a robust set of requirements that simply cannot be satisfied by traditional solutions or generalized approaches.
A must for managing security and compliance posture is a full inventory of assets, vulnerabilities, and risks enterprise-wide. This includes your OT environment, which is incompatible with standard inventory tools.
Core to minimizing cyber risk is a zero trust security architecture, which is crucial — yet often error-prone and resource-intensive to implement — for OT environments.
Proactive detection and response is notoriously difficult, but visibility limitations and escalating threat-actor interest amplify this difficulty for industrial organizations.
Having built and optimized cyber risk management capabilities for hundreds of global organizations over the past decade, we at Claroty know firsthand what it takes to achieve cyber resilience as part of an industrial cybersecurity maturity journey. The following use cases show what this journey commonly looks like for our customers.
Asset discovery is the backbone of cyber resilience. We take this seriously, settling for no less than a complete inventory of all your XIoT assets — including each asset’s full scope of identifiers and behavioral details. Achieving this visibility with Claroty entails:
Experiencing painless deployment and discovery
No matter your regulatory requirements or stance on the cloud versus on-premises debate, our deployment and discovery options arm you with full visibility in no time.
Amplifying the value of your XIoT asset inventory
CMDB tools are among our many integrations that harness your inventory to optimize workflows enterprise-wide.
Vulnerabilities prevail in OT environments due to their legacy systems and limited maintenance windows. We put a stop to this by correlating your assets with the latest vulnerability data and focusing your prioritization on the real risks at hand. This encompasses:
Uncovering and remediating your risk blindspots
Beyond revealing vulnerabilities and informing mitigations, we integrate with orchestration tools to safely uncover IT risks in your OT environment.
Measuring and maturing your risk program
Granular KPIs and flexible reporting help you understand your cyber risk posture, inform decisions, and track progress.
Network segmentation and secure remote access are effective at improving cybersecurity posture, but implementation can be tough and costly. Fueled by our knowledge of OT remote access and XIoT assets, we help you embrace these zero trust controls by:
Jumpstarting your network segmentation program
Our platform creates policies that can be enforced by your existing infrastructure to jumpstart segmentation and enhance protection.
Securing and streamlining OT remote access
Built for OT’s security and operational needs, our remote access solution offers simple administration and an ideal UX.
No OT environment is immune to threats, so effective detection and response are critical. They also difficult due to the unique specifications of OT. Our cyber-resilient detection model gives you an advantage over threats by:
Pinpointing and remediating attack vectors
An indicator of attack vectors in OT environments, communication with malicious entities is blocked by our platform.
Extending your existing SOC capabilities to OT
Our integrations with SIEM, SOAR, and EDR tools extend your existing SOC tech stack to your OT environment.
