SCADA Security Starts with Network Visibility

on 5/28/20 8:00 AM By | Neil Wilkins | 0 Comments | Network Visibility/Monitoring Industrial Ethernet
Supervisory control and data acquisition systems (SCADA), or industrial control systems (ICS), have been monitoring and controlling our industrial, power and refinery world since the 1960s. SCADA started out analog, focused on monitoring physical qualities, such as pressure, temperature, viscosity, voltage levels, liquid flow, wind/air speed, and salinity. SCADA systems typically operated as an independent system, telling human operators if the system they were monitoring was working within correct parameters. The systems then report back to computers that calculated if everything was okay; if not, it makes the decision to either change parameters or shut down the systems that were in danger.

Building A Zero Trust Visibility Architecture

on 5/21/20 8:00 AM By | Harry Berridge | 0 Comments | Network Security Network Visibility/Monitoring Federal
In response to rapidly evolving cybersecurity threats, Zero Trust, a concept that emerged over 15 years ago, is now a strategic priority for government network agencies. Following reports from the Defense Innovation Board (DIB) and the American Council for Technology - Industry Advisory Council, the federal government is now putting Zero Trust at the forefront of its increased cybersecurity spending. What is Zero Trust (ZT) exactly? The concept is a departure from perimeter-based cybersecurity as the focus shifts toward individual access and away from protecting wide segments of the network. By narrowing the scope of network defenses, and increasing protection for resources as they span across an increasingly distributed network. Sounds easy enough, right? While there are many facets of implementing a Zero Trust strategy, this blog will review a few main architecture concepts, including ZT Network Requirements, ZT Framework, and ZT Visibility fabric.

How to Troubleshoot the Network Part 2: Solving Network Forensics Problems

Part 1 in this two-part series on how to troubleshoot the network focused on the most common challenges you’ll face—connectivity, performance, and latency troubleshooting scenarios. And in a perfect world, these would be the most difficult network problems you’d ever face. But the reality is that troubleshooting has grown increasingly complex over the last decade. Now, network speeds are faster than ever, you’re processing exponentially more data, and cyber threats have become increasingly sophisticated. As a result, it’s harder than ever to find root causes and solutions to network problems.

7 Common Visibility Challenges in Industrial Environments

on 4/30/20 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network TAPs TAPs vs SPAN Industrial Ethernet
The convergence of Operational Technology (OT) with Information Technology (IT), has exposed many challenges for the industrial space, including increased vulnerability to cyber attacks and network blindspots. Unfortunately, many companies are on the wrong side of a hack when they discover they do not have proper visibility into their OT systems, like they may enjoy with their IT infrastructure.

How to Provide Visibility to the DoD’s Zero Trust Cloud Security Initiative

on 4/23/20 8:00 AM By | Harry Berridge | 0 Comments | Cloud Solutions Federal
As the United States Department of Defense (DoD) undertakes the largest cloud migration in history, beginning with Microsoft’s winning bid for the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure project, data security in the cloud is of paramount importance for this project. Aggressive cyber threats that aim to undermine the US Military’s efforts to keep America and its allies safe, become even more alarming with the DoD network moving to the cloud.
