Securing Cyber-Physical Systems for U.S Government Agencies

Claroty's purpose-built cybersecurity controls empower agencies to identify, protect, monitor, and optimize cyber-physical systems leveraged by the U.S. government across critical infrastructure sectors.

The U.S Public Sector Cybersecurity Challenge

U.S. public sector agencies are increasingly embracing cyber-physical systems (CPS) to optimize crucial government and military activities across broadly distributed physical sites.

Unfortunately, the connectivity sustaining these systems is also exposing them to risks that are difficult to manage.

Not only are most CPS incompatible with traditional cybersecurity tools — but the criticality and regulatory environments of the agencies they support present additional challenges that are amplified by the U.S. government's widespread prominence as a target among advanced persistent threat (APT) actors.

To overcome these challenges and ensure resilience, your organization needs technology purpose-built to secure all of its cyber-physical systems — from operational technology (OT) assets to building management systems (BMS) to IoT devices — which are collectively known as the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT). Enter Claroty.

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.

U.S. Government Segments

U.S. Federal Civilian Agencies

The safety, security, health, and quality of life of the American public relies on U.S. federal civilian agencies to carry out a broad range of public service missions at a massive scale and geographic scope. These federal agencies are increasingly embracing cyber-physical systems to better serve constituents, but this digital transformation introduces cyber risk that must be mitigated with purpose-built technology.

U.S. Federal Defense and Military

Comprising the world's most robust military presence, U.S. defense agencies leverage a complex web of connected, cyber-physical technologies to defend life, freedom, justice, and stability — both domestically and abroad. To ensure the safety and reliability of these systems, agencies need purpose-built technology designed to holistically secure the military supply chain, as well as the complex XIoT of connected defense networks, including smart military bases and battlefield IoT technology.

State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Governments

Vital to the communities they serve, state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) government agencies are faced with the challenge of optimizing limited resources to meet a wide range of needs, including healthcare, energy, water/wastewater, and transportation.

Boosting Cyber Resilience with Claroty Industrial

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.

  • Reduce onsite staffing needs — and the associated safety risks and costs.

  • Eliminate the administrative complexities of traditional remote access solutions.

  • Minimize exposure to cyber and operational risks with built-in security controls.
