Providing Visibility to your Industrial SCADA Virtualization Environment

With ever-present and growing security threats from both foreign and domestic sources, safeguarding utility networks and communication infrastructure has become paramount to protecting utility grids from hacking and providing uninterrupted delivery of services to consumers.  Recently, we’ve seen an influx in industrial customers from power utilities, oil & gas, to manufacturing looking to modernize their networks. Like many industries, industrial networks are looking to virtualize their environments to reduce hardware, infrastructure and facilitation costs as well as enabling better SCADA software integration into the existing IT environment.

What is Network Visibility and How to Guarantee 100% Data Capture

Network visibility has never been more important to the success of a business, regardless of industry. Addressing increasingly demanding business requirements has led to highly complex IT environments. And unfortunately, blind spots have become more common as a result. Any blind spots in your network can lead to costly consequences from both performance monitoring and security perspectives. If a blind spot leads to system outages, you could be faced with, on average, $300,000 per hour of downtime. And if blind spots open the door for attackers to launch a data breach, the global average cost of a data breach is $3.92 million. Eliminating these blind spots starts with maximizing network visibility. But what do we really mean by network visibility and how do you achieve it?

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.

Air Gapping: An Added Layer of Security for Cloud and Industrial Environments

Despite ever-increasing cybersecurity budgets, attackers continue to find ways around network defenses and are on track to cause over $6 trillion in damages annually by 2021. As cloud adoption continues to grow, attackers are taking advantage of new threat vectors and 84% of organizations say traditional security solutions don’t work against them. This is especially problematic in the industrial sector where cyber attacks aren’t just costly—they can be a matter of life and death. Ignoring cloud computing isn’t an option. The advantages of moving industrial processes to the cloud are just too beneficial to ignore.  Cloud environments and industrial networks need an additional layer of security to address vulnerabilities without sacrificing the cost efficiency, scalability, and flexibility of a modern architecture. Air gapping is the answer to this challenge.

Today’s increasing needs in the digital world require us to not live in the present, but look towards the future. Not just in technology, but in the way we do business. Hyper cloud, hybrid cloud, the cloud, the cold front without clouds, everything but what it was called, the Internet. Nothing has been changed in the way we apply the Internet to our lives, but what has changed is the way it has been marketed.

Capture 100% Full Duplex Traffic with RegenTAPs

With the rise in the number of monitoring tools enterprises are using to analyze their network traffic, a new problem has arisen; how will you get network traffic to multiple out-of-band monitoring tools? Garland Technology recognized the need for a Network TAP that would allow traffic from a single network link to be sent to multiple monitoring appliances to analyze the network.
