MANAGE Your DIGITAL Assets like a boss
Experience the OT-BASE difference
OT-BASE is an asset management system for companies in manufacturing, energy, water, chemical and similar industries who are dissatisfied with using Excel to inventory and manage their digital infrastructure.
Excel, Visio & wiring diagrams… because you didn’t have anything better
Designed for the way control system engineers & admins want to work
Building and maintaining the digital backbone of industrial production is no small feat. It takes skilled engineers and admins who are passionate about their job. Being left in the dark and slowed down by obsolete tools will not only result in frustration. It will also require excess labor and headcount to get the job done. Not an appealing prospect when you’re planning to vastly increase digital complexity in the pursuit of the IIoT.
Make sure your system experts deliver peak performance by giving them a tool that they actually love to use.
Data Flow Mapping
Access all the configuration data already stored in your devices
Unlike the first generation of ICS asset discovery tools that use passive scanning, OT-BASE Asset Discovery selectively probes endpoints and network gear using legitimate and safe protocols which were intended just for this purpose. This way, OT-BASE can tell you the full story: About your network topology, software products and versions, security patches not installed, firmware versions, and much more. Even better, OT-BASE Asset Discovery is so resource friendly that it can co-exist with other applications on existing hardware.

Need to inventory IT devices and software as well? OT-BASE can do that for you, too
If you don’t maintain an asset inventory for your IT systems already, there’s no need to purchase an additional, IT-centric solution. OT-BASE can inventory your IT systems just as well. Added benefit: You get the full picture in one solution, and you can integrate overlapping functions such as vulnerability management, thereby boosting efficiency.
Priced around Customer value
License fee per device degrades with the number of devices. The more devices you manage with OT-BASE, the lower the cost per device. Best of all, if you manage multiple sites with OT-BASE, license fees are calculated based on the cummulative number of devices, not based on the number of devices per site.
For twenty years we did little else but help asset owners in multiple industries to protect their plants against sophisticated cyber-physical attacks. The fundamental problem we encountered over and over again was a blatant lack of appropriate digital system documentation. As a result, assessment projects took much longer than needed, and always turned up serious vulnerabilities in system design that could have been avoided if appropriate documentation had been available.
We spent several years working on the concepts of an asset management system purpose-built for digital operations technology which would fix all these issues. Based on a system model that is built from metadata rather than from content. Then, we turned concepts into reality, making sure that control system engineers and IT experts alike would actually love the resulting product:
