Securing Cyber-Physical Systems for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Governments

Claroty's purpose-built cybersecurity controls empower your state, local, tribal, or territorial government agencies to identify, protect, monitor, and optimize cyber-physical systems.

The State and Local Government Cybersecurity Challenge

State and local government agencies are increasingly embracing cyber-physical systems (CPS) to optimize critical infrastructure performance and better serve constituents. However, the connectivity that underpins these systems and the vital systems they provide also introduces additional risk that is uniquely difficult to manage.

To overcome these challenges and ensure operational resilience, your agency needs purpose-built technology capable of securing all cyber-physical systems within its environment — from operational technology (OT) assets to building management systems (BMS) to IoT devices — collectively known as the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT).

Driving Compliance for the U.S. Public Sector

Federal Regulations & Legislation

Claroty’s support for the entire cyber-physical systems security journey supports and simplifies compliance with the requirements set forth by NERC-CIP, HIPAA, HITECH, cGMPs, relevant executive orders, and relevant directives from the TSA, CISA, the FDA, and various other federal agencies and regulatory or legislative bodies.

Recommended Practices & Frameworks

CISA’s Cross-Sector Performance Goals (CPGs), the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), the HITRUST CSF, 405(d) HICP, ISO 27001, IEC 62443, and other recommended cybersecurity practices and recognized frameworks are among many with which compliance is enabled by the security controls provided by Claroty’s portfolio.

State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) Sectors

Electric

The public depends on reliable power service from electric utilities and cooperatives to carry out their daily lives. The highly disruptive nature of power outages makes electric utilities operators an appealing target for threat actors, so these agencies must take care to mitigate the risks posed by digital transformation while complying with NERC-CIP requirements.

Water

Any incident that compromises the availability of water or wastewater systems or the purity of drinking water poses a substantial public health risk that can trigger a domino effect impacting other critical infrastructure. As these critical systems are modernized, comprehensive cyber-physical security and adherence to CISA's objectives for critical infrastructure are essential.

Transportation

Government agencies tasked with managing public transit systems, airports, railways, and port facilities are increasingly leveraging cyber-physical systems to streamline operations. However, they must also take steps to mitigate the expanded attack surface resulting from digital transformation while adhering to TSA directives and other regulations and standards.

Healthcare

Public health relies on public healthcare. As more public U.S. hospitals and clinics incorporate IoMT and other connected devices into care delivery, cyber risks with the potential to harm patient safety are a growing concern. These conditions are fueling not only new cybersecurity challenges but also legislation and regulations: from HIPAA and HITECH to 405(d), among others.

Boosting Cyber Resilience with Claroty Public Sector

Asset Discovery

You can’t protect what you can’t see — which is why our asset discovery capabilities are foundational not only to your cyber resilience — but to your entire industrial cybersecurity journey.

  • Gain a comprehensive and fully automated XIoT asset inventory

  • Harness in-depth communication and behavioral profiles for all XIoT assets

  • Choose between multiple asset discovery methods to achieve visibility your way

Vulnerability & Risk Management

A key barrier to cyber resilience, vulnerabilities are inevitably prevalent in public sector XIoT environments. We banish this barrier from your environment.

  • Automatically correlate your XIoT assets with vulnerability and risk information

  • Prioritize remediation efforts based on real risks to your operations

  • Enable continuous security posture management and compliance

Network Protection

We help you sustain cyber resilience by fortifying your environment with notoriously tough-to-implement components of effective network protection.

  • Jumpstart network segmentation with tailored recommendations

  • Enforce granular access controls for remote internal and 3rd-party users

  • Implement a Zero Trust architecture to minimize cyber risk exposure

Threat Detection

Since no public sector XIoT environment is immune to threats — ranging from opportunistic cybercriminals to nation-state adversaries to unintentional errors — we empower you to detect and respond to them immediately and effectively.

  • Continuously monitor for all known and unknown threats

  • Extend or develop your SOC capabilities to cover your public sector XIoT environment in its entirety

  • Mitigate cyber attacks before they impact your operations

Strengthening Operational Resilience with Claroty Public Sector

Asset Discovery

Operational resilience requires a centralized, in-depth, always-up-to-date inventory of all XIoT assets that underpin your industrial operations.

  • Gain a comprehensive XIoT asset inventory automatically

  • Harness in-depth profiles for all XIoT assets, with information such as manufacturer, and firmware version

  • Choose between multiple asset discovery methods for visibility your way

Change Management

We equip you with optimal change management to drive safety and process integrity on your path to operational resilience.

  • Empower MoC programs with continuous operations monitoring

  • Take advantage of detailed XIoT asset profiles to optimize workflows

  • Use flexible reporting to track progress and assist with state or federal audits

Asset Management

We provide you with an XIoT asset inventory that arms you with the asset management details you need to reduce your operational risk.

  • Automatically monitor your assets for updates

  • Easily prioritize necessary updates based on risk

  • Streamline SLA compliance and reporting processes

Secure Remote Access

Remote access is critical to continuity — yet traditional methods are risky and inefficient. Our approach provides continuity without compromise, while enabling you to overcome talent shortages and other constraints with secure remote accessibility.

  • Eliminate the need for jump servers or complex firewall configurations

  • Offer an ideal remote-user experience that reduces mean time-to-repair (MTTR)

  • Tightly control and secure all remote sessions
