The lack of visibility and concise inventory of an industrial organization’s networks are a fundamental barrier to implementing cybersecurity. You can’t secure what you do not know about, and a lack of visibility will impact any cybersecurity deployment. Complete awareness of assets, their vulnerabilities, communications flows, and roles within industrial processes are required in order to establish security posture and segmentation and to apply the appropriate security policy across all IT, OT and industrial IoT devices.
The Palo Alto Network Industrial OT Security service provides asset discovery, device profiling, risk assessment, continuous monitoring with deep inspection into communication flows and policy recommendations that can be applied and enforced on the NGFW. Industrial OT Security provides full visibility of assets and their communication flows across OT so that industrial organizations can segment their networks, apply least-privilege access, provide threat prevention, continuously monitor OT networks, and respond appropriately to any security events.
