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.

Single Points of Failure: Understanding and Eliminating Them from Your Network

With so many mission-critical processes relying on network connectivity, data center outages simply can’t be tolerated. And yet, nearly one-third of all data centers experience an outage annually. According to an ITIC survey, 86% of businesses say that an hour of data center downtime costs more than $300,000. Worse yet, 34% say the costs of data center downtime can reach anywhere from $1 million to $5 million per hour. Regardless of the specific costs of data center downtime in your organization, the reality is that 80% of outages are preventable. However, many IT teams make the mistake of attributing a majority of outages to malware and other cyber threats. While cyber attacks can certainly cause downtime, there’s a more fundamental root cause that you need to address—single points of failure (SPOFs) across your network. By understanding and eliminating SPOFs on your network, you can maximize the effectiveness of inline security tools and increase resilience at the same time.

Network Packet Visibility for Hybrid Cloud Environment

Nearly all cyber attacks must cross the network, so extracting security-relevant data from network traffic is essential across a wide range of security operations. As teams are moving to the cloud, they lose physical access to applications that previously were housed in the data center. Just as traditional network test access point (TAP) and packet broker solutions fuel monitoring tools traffic from across the network, a solution is needed to continue to feed these tools when there is no longer physical access to applications that now reside in the cloud.
