Discover Operational Technology in Device Intelligence

Device Intelligence supports the discovery and security of devices in the operational technology (OT) network. The solution provides visibility into various OT activities seen in the network like cold restart, write variable, etc.

Operational technology is hardware and software that detects or causes a change, through direct monitoring and/or control of industrial equipment, assets, processes and events. Industrial control systems (ICS) are a major segment of the operational technology sector. It comprises systems that are used to monitor and control industrial processes. 

Industrial control systems (ICS) are often managed via a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system that provides a graphical user interface for operators to observe the status of a system.

Device Intelligence is an agent-less, non-intrusive solution that provides visibility of the devices and reduces the risk in the environment. In the OT network, the solution uses OT DNP3 and Modbus protocol traffic to discover SCADA devices like Master, Outstation, etc. Hyper-context is the device information that is defined for the discovered devices like, IP address, host name, make, model, OS, function, levels, etc. Device Intelligence categorizes the devices into three verticals, as enterprise, medical and industrial. Communication between the OT devices is captured as activities log.
