CHICAGO, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Verve Industrial Protection (an RKNeal company) today announced the release of their Verve Asset Manager (VAM) 2.0. VAM is one of the underlying components of the Verve Security Center and provides significant value into asset visibility and profiles. “One of the biggest challenges for the operational space is getting a handle on what is installed, what it is doing and where it is,” explained Bob Bevis, CTO.
VAM is an ICS specific asset management and monitoring tool. Built to extend into plant specific equipment that is not OS-based VAM not only automates profiling of control equipment that is almost always manually inventoried and rarely updated, it feeds multiple security and management functions. “VAM 1.0 is currently being used by many of our clients to monitor then feed asset characteristics such as graphics and set point changes to corporate change management tools as well as log on/log off security events to SIEM tools thereby maximizing value of corporate investment as well as minimizing manual data collections efforts,” said John Livingston, CEO.
VAM 2.0 is an expansion of the original functionality. Not only does it include much more advanced user interface for analysis, but it also now includes initial baselining and auto-asset discovery. VAM 2.0 can now immediately build an asset inventory and create a baseline picture of your network. In addition, specific features include the ability to dynamically select columns for display or reporting, import and export of data (Including on-boarding new segments of assets in scope) and the ability for users to define their own inventory fields for profiling and monitoring.
Eduardo Barbosa, Product Manager, explained, “We were automatically collecting data our users were not used to having and correlating it for security and management purposes.
Extending the interface and modelling to facilitate additional maintenance, monitoring and reporting functions was a natural extension of our functionality.”
VAM 2.0 will ship in Q2 for all current and future customers as part of the next major release of VSC (version 4.0).
