Modernize OT/IT Cybersecurity and Defend Distributed OT Assets

Automated Attack Prevention

Critical, remote OT network assets that require connectivity to operate effectively are almost impossible to discern during reconnaissance. And in the event threats get onto the network, it can detect them earlier, reducing dwell time while actively preventing command and control communications from being established and stopping exfiltration.

PacketViper Cyber Deception Technology

No Unplanned Downtime

Properly functioning OT networks frequently push the limits of legacy devices as manufacturers announce impending end of support timelines, and as technologies approach their end of useful life. The solution allows operators and security teams to secure aging assets and protect operations without a costly ‘rip and replace’.

A Big Problem: Increasing Attacks Through Connected OT Assets

Operational technology (OT) networks power essential physical processes in our physical world requiring high rates of reliability and uptime.

The cybersecurity of physically distributed OT assets like pumps, wellheads, and their control infrastructure, is essential for continuous operations.

Each distributed OT asset that is connected to a corporate network or the internet can lead to greater exposure to cyber threats.

Insufficient cyber defense of distributed OT endpoints can result in successful attacks on OT networks which can have catastrophic results.

  • Case Study: Water authority cyber-physical defense

    A water authority conducted Red Team exercises simulating a physical breach whereby the team gained access to the network via a physical connection at a control panel at two of the unmanaged locations. The result was a success with PacketViper protecting the critical operations network, blocking the attacker’s ability to further penetrate the network while alerting operators of the attack.

  • A Compensating Control for the Vanishing Air Gap

    Operational technology (OT) networks are becoming more connected to IT environments. As such, the once dependable ‘air gap’ protection between IT and OT no longer exists. This creates cyber risk that can result in substantial financial losses, the disruption of essential services, and possibly affect national security and public welfare. For organizations relying on OT, … Continue reading >>>

  • 3 Steps to Close the Proxy Loophole on Malicious Nation-State Attackers

      Heightened geopolitical tensions led to a recent warning from CISA on strengthening cyber defenses in anticipation of increased nation-state cyber attacks.  While we know the specific nation-states we are most concerned with, targeting defenses against them is tricky. Attackers have abundant resources to wage dynamic, persistent attacks. Unfortunately, common cyber defense solutions are typically … Continue reading >>>

  • Mitigate EDoS Attacks: Creeping Normality and the Boiling Frog Fable

    Everyday Denial of Service (D0S)Much like the boiling frog fable, this change to our networks has happened very gradually to the point where we just accept it as normal. It's time for a paradigm shift. It’s time for EDoS to take its place next to DDoS and DoS as things to be fought against and defeated.
