If you don’t have OTbase, you don’t have an OT asset inventory
OTbase is the gold standard for automated OT asset inventories. It automatically inventories OT devices from PLCs over network switches to sensors and actuators. It scales well beyond 500k devices and is used by Global Manufacturing and Big Oil.
The first platform that addresses all types of OT cyber risk
Most of what you have heard about OT cyber risk is actually just a small subsection of the topic: The exotic, fancy section, where you learn about scary threat actors and those who hunt them down, in an almost epic — and never ending — battle.
A rather fascinating subject, albeit a bit disconnected from the reality of the plant floor. And then there are other types of OT cyber risk that were ignored for many years, just because they are less thrilling:
- The risk that you miss firmware updates that fix functional and safety issues.
- The risk that ageing OT equipment becomes obsolete and replacement parts are no longer available when you need them.
- The risk that staff retires before having passed configuration knowledge to the next generation.
- The risk that vintage Windows computers crash due to resource exhaustion and cause downtime.
- The risk that it is only discovered after a system crash that a critical OT system was not backed up properly.
Any of these risks is much more prevalent than falling victim to a cyber-physical attack, yet they have been largely ignored. All of these risks, including cyber attacks, are addressed by the OTbase OT asset management system. OTbase is the bedrock of your OT cyber risk management.
OTbase integrates security and engineering use cases
All you ever wanted to know about your digital OT assets, without the legwork
Gone are the days when you could only learn about your OT assets walk-down inspections and recording results in Excel. OTbase collects all asset data automatically.
With OTbase, you don’t even need to install hardware appliances and configure SPAN ports. OTbase is a software-only product that discovers OT devices by safe active probing technology. Install and orchestrate the OTbase Discovery software remotely, without the need to be on site.
Once you’ve seen it
you will never want to go back.
When your company’s success, and your team’s efficiency, depend on how well you understand and manage tens of thousands of digital OT devices, you need a software platform that was specifically designed to do the job: The OTbase OT asset management system with engineering integration. Look at the screen shots and product videos and you will understand why OTbase is the prime choice for large global enterprises.
Excel is NOT an OT asset inventory tool
Manually created OT asset inventories in Excel are a waste of time. They are incomplete, inaccurate, and outdated before the end of the month.
OTbase creates your OT asset inventory automatically and keeps it up to date effortlessly. And it comes with a wealth of add-on functionality such as vulnerability management, network topology, and more.
In this day and age, if you still try to keep track of your OT assets in an Excel table, you know fairly well that you’re doing it wrong. It’s simply impossible to manually collect and update thousands of OT devices along with their serial numbers, I/O modules, firmware versions.
This is where OTbase comes in. It automatically builds your OT asset inventory and allows for easy data enrichment using your existing metadata. All OT asset information is then stored in a global database on your enterprise network that is fully protected by granular access control.
Best of all, OTbase automatically adds vulnerability data and vendor product metadata such as product lifecycle status and current firmware version. The resulting data set can easily be shared with other tools such as Power BI, ServiceNow, or Splunk.
Understand your critical OT infrastructure from the big picture down to the most minute configuration detail. Hardware and software configuration. Network topology. Vulnerabilities and patches. System integrity and health. Product obsolescence. All supported by powerful workflows.
Automatically discover network topology, including field busses. Detect new devices on the network. More >
Monitor new vulnerabilities for your installed base as they come in. Explore security patch consistency. More >
The first OT tool that wasn’t designed with hackers in mind, but with you — the user
There are around 30 products in the “ICS Detection” category, but OT-BASE isn’t one of them. You may have a hard time understanding how one ICS Detection product is different from the next, but it’s easy to see how OT-BASE is different from all of those.
OTbase is a general purpose OT asset management system. It doesn’t detect cyber-physical attacks that might happen once per decade. It makes users more productive — users in engineering, auditing, cyber security, plant planning, and related fields.
