Network security design and segmentation has not historically been a priority in an OT environment. In many cases, networks are flat, connected to corporate IT networks, or unknowingly connected to the internet as Shodan data proves. In addition, most IT personnel are not trained in how to balance between operational requirements and standard networking principles, while most I&C techs are not familiar with networking details.
As part of our Design-4-Defense services, Verve offers a full service network design, segmentation and monitoring capability. This service line includes the following elements:
- Network mapping and path discovery
- Network segmentation design for any type of integrated IT-OTnetwork
- Implementation of segmentation and separation
- Ongoing monitoring of network performance and anomalies
