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.
Verve’s Asset Inventory Solution
Verve’s approach to managing an asset inventory for ICS cyber goes beyond visibility to manage and prioritize risk remediation.

Verve’s OT Asset Management and Visibility
Wide Coverage of OT/ICS Device Types
Verve’s software-defined, agent-based and agentless architecture safely gathers rich asset profiles with depth and breadth across all OEM platforms.
In Verve’s asset discovery dashboard, you will find different analysis and donut charts to detect and count assets from different sites into one reporting view. This view shows you the different vendors on the network and raw data details per asset.Request Full Demo
Vulnerability Identification and Prioritization
Use the Verve Security Center’s filters to search for specific vulnerabilities by asset type, criticality, location, history and date to prioritize remediation efforts.Request Full Demo
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.Request Full Demo
Use Verve’s asset inventory management to gather all software installed in the network for tracking and incident response.Request Full Demo
Identify Misconfigured Devices
Identify configuration insecurities across devices and identify potential compliance gaps. Verve gathers specific ICS/OT configuration analysis to determine potential for risks due to insecurely configured devices.Request Full Demo
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-nicsRequest Full Demo
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.
Asset Inventory for ICS Cyber Security
ICS asset inventory acts as the foundation to a successful endpoint management program for OT/ICS. A robust asset inventory provides stronger vulnerability insight and management of potential risks. If developed correctly, asset inventory is an immensely valuable data source that comes full circle in setting up the dozens of cyber security best practices, insights, decision making and planning tasks you are expected to make for a long-term, successful cyber security program.
