Verve for OT/ICS Asset Inventory

What is OT/ICS Asset Inventory?

An asset inventory is the foundation of a robust OT/ICS cyber security program. A comprehensive and automated real-time asset inventory enables ongoing asset management of critical IT and OT/ICS systems. 

Asset inventories are not all the same, however. A one-time or infrequently updated list of hardware and its OS or firmware provides some context. A passive capture of anything communicating on the network provides a different, but limited view. 

A robust foundation for OT/ICS security requires a real-time visibility to all of the hardware and software in your network, all of the users, accounts, patches, vulnerabilities, network device configurations, Windows settings, embedded device backplanes, status of various security elements such as application firewalls, whitelisting, antivirus, etc. 

Further, it should provide the ability for automated or user-created asset criticality and risk scoring. This deep and broad asset inventory acts as the foundation to true endpoint management and security. Having this kind of inventory at your fingertips significantly reduces costs and time. 

Verve’s unique architecture enables just this kind of asset inventory and asset visibility.  It acts as the foundation to an integrated asset management or endpoint management program for OT/ICS. 

An automated and robust asset inventory increases the efficiency and cyber security maturity of your industrial environment by centralizing all endpoint asset data into one view to Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover from a single platform. Feel confident and in command of your operations when time and information is on your side.

Manage Vulnerabilities with Patching

Apply patches to fix vulnerabilities discovered with the Verve Security Center. Quickly identify the total number of patches missing and prioritize which to fix first by filtering on the severity, site location, specific asset, release date, criticality, system grouping and whitelisting enforcement.

Risk & Compensating Controls (risk score)

Verve offers one view into all software and patch/vulnerability statuses, including over 100 additional risk assessment measures such as compensating controls, antivirus status, user defined criticality scores, and full network configuration assessment.

• Deep visibility across all OT, IOT, OS assets and networks to discover embedded devices (even PLCs, relayed and controllers)

• Custom user-defined fields enable classification for risk and system groups

• Network information gathered for full insight into subnetworks and dual-nics

Network Connectivity

Identify rogue connections and potential misconfigured network devices that might allow inappropriate or risky traffic/access through the network.

Verve’s visibility enables detailed analysis of network connectivity risks and operational errors that can cause downtime or damage.

User & Account Identification

Verve’s deep inventory gathers all users and accounts on the systems. These are not just accounts that are currently in use, but dormant accounts, admin accounts that have not been renamed, accounts with dated passwords, etc.

This enables rapid user and account management, a critical risk management function in OT.
