Rhebo Industrial Protector - Seamless ICS transparency in real time
Rhebo Industrial Protector continuously monitors the control communication including the switchgear, telecontrol and network control technology. All data packets are decoded at the content level, and any suspicious activity is reported in real-time. Even deviating operation processes, which can lead to system failures, like network problems and machine malfunctions are reliably detected, evaluated in their risk and reported. The administration retains complete control over the system functionality. All data about suspicious operations (including metadata and package contents) are stored. This allows a detailed analysis of each suspicious activity. Filter rules (filter policies) and universal interfaces also make it possible to integrate Industrial Protector as a data source for existing backend systems such as SAP, MES and firewalls to implement a big data strategy and a comprehensive monitoring concept.
