Security And Stability Need ICS Transparency
A complete plant asset management of the industrial control system is the basis for an effective risk analysis, cybersecurity and operational management. Various industry standards such as IEC 62443 and ISO 27000 recommend complete documentation of all assets, their properties and connections.
Whether critical infrastructure, production companies or process industries: Plant asset management of industrial equipment is usually incomplete and difficult. Often there is no general overview of the individual components, especially in complex plants or embedded systems. In addition, new devices that intervene with the control systems are continuously introduced. In most cases, the properties of the components cannot be documented on a daily basis either in order to ensure meaningful plant asset management. Manufacturers use proprietary settings and protocols or hide information as a business secret.
These blind spots in the ICS jeopardize both industrial security and availability-oriented operation.
Complexity of Industrial Control Systems Has Multiplied
Detailed And Automated Asset Tracking
Rhebo Industrial Protector recognizes and analyzes in real-time every component that communicates within the industrial control system. This provides you with up-to-date documentation of all components and their properties. This information includes e.g.:
- vendor, device name,
- IP address, MAC address,
- version of firmware,
- serial number, known vulnerabilities.
Additional you get detailed information about:
- communication profiles,
- communication volumes,
- connections to other devices (system context diagram),
- quality of connections regarding cybersecurity and technical flawlessness.
The continuous network monitoring with anomaly detection additionally informs you in real-time about changes in the communication behavior of the individual components. This enables you to immediately detect manipulation attempts, technical error states or overload states for condition based maintenance and operations management.
