The CPS Threat Detection Challenge

No CPS environment is immune to threats, so being able to detect and respond effectively when they do surface is critical yet difficult due to:

Traditional Monitoring Tools are Incompatible

The proprietary protocols in CPS environments are not compatible with traditional threat detection tools, rendering them ineffective and potentially disruptive.

CPS Environments are Complex

The intricacy of multi-site CPS environments and their critical assets can make it difficult to identify potentially malicious deviations from accepted baselines.

Targeted Attacks are on the Rise

CPS environments are increasingly targeted by malicious actors due to their growing CPS attack surface, inherent insecurity, and downtime intolerance.

Expertise and SOC Functional Gaps

Many security operations center (SOC) teams are trained to detect and respond to IT-centric incidents but lack the domain-specific knowledge and tools needed to defend CPS environments.

“Receiving alerts in real-time is a must-have for our multinational mining, metals, and petroleum operations. Claroty allows us to prioritize the actions we need to take to reduce and eliminate potential risks to the business.”

How Claroty Tackles the CPS Threat Detection Challenge

Offers Purpose-Built Monitoring for CPS Environments

Detecting all manner of threats that can impact CPS environments requires the ability to detect known and unknown threats, as well as monitor for critical change operations on CPS that can impact the way they operate. Recognizing these challenges, we designed our portfolio to be both suitable for the broad spectrum of threats our customers face, and fast and painless to deploy.

Streamlines Threat Alerting and Minimizes False Positives

The inherent complexity and diversity of assets, devices, systems, and processes in CPS environments makes threat monitoring uniquely prone to false positives. Claroty automatically weeds out these false positives and consolidates interrelated events into a single alert. Not only does this approach help optimize your prioritization and response, but it also reduces alert fatigue and gives you more time to focus on the threats that matter most.

Easily Identifying and Remediating Attack Vectors

One of the clearest indicators of potentially threatening activity in your CPS environment is unknown or anomalous communication between CPS and external sources. Claroty makes it easy to alert on such communications and then automatically define, tailor, and deploy policies to prevent future violations, thereby eliminating this type of attack vector.

Seamlessly Extends Existing SOC Capabilities

Claroty’s vast technical ecosystem includes ready-made integrations with the types of tools your SOC likely already uses: from EDR platforms, to SOAR solutions, to SIEMs. By seamlessly connecting our portfolio’s threat monitoring capabilities with your existing tech stack, our portfolio enables you to bridge the IT-CPS expertise gap and empower your SOC to confidently and effectively monitor and manage all threat alerts from across your organization’s entire environment — all on a single pane of glass within their existing tools.
