Legacy systems are commonplace in industrial environments, making them prone to vulnerabilities and risks that can be tough to manage. Here’s why:
Industrial assets use protocols that are largely invisible to standard security tools. If you can’t identify an asset, you definitely can’t manage its vulnerabilities and risks.
Finding a vulnerability isn’t enough. You also need to assess the affected asset’s context and potential impact on your operations to prioritize and remediate the risk.
Industrial environments and the assets that underpin them are uniquely fragile and cannot tolerate the traffic generated by standard vulnerability scanners.
Most industrial environments have no tolerance for downtime, so maintenance windows (and, as a result, patching) occur rarely, no matter the vulnerability or risk.
After discovering all XIoT assets in your environment, Claroty enriches them with more than 90 attributes: from vendor and model, to firmware and rackslot. Each asset’s attributes are then correlated against our database of CVEs, misconfigurations, findings from our acclaimed Team82 researchers, and other flaws. Contextualized alerts flag new vulnerabilities, and false positives are filtered out so you can focus on what matters most.
Claroty tracks all vulnerabilities present in your environment and correlates them with external information that helps further contextualize their risk. Claroty correlates insights from CISA’s Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog and FIRST’s Exploit Prediction Scoring System (EPSS) to help provide additional insight into a vulnerability in order to help you prioritize CVEs that need your attention the most.
Claroty’s risk framework empowers you to easily understand CPS risk unique to your environment so that you can better assess and prioritize remediation efforts. Claroty also delivers insights into your risk posture with quantified recommendations for strengthening it based on the number of reduced risk assets and its impact to the risk score, with KPIs to track the effectiveness of your risk management program.
The vulnerability scanning tools used widely in IT environments are incompatible and even dangerous to use in industrial environments. This deprives IT security teams of visibility into IT risks that may be present in industrial environments. Recognizing the need to safely uncover these risk blindspots, Claroty integrates with various third-party vulnerability tools that arm IT and industrial practitioners alike with enterprise-wide visibility into their risk posture without endangering operations.
