DETECTING AND RESPONDING TO ATTACKS

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Networks are part of the nation’s critical infrastructure and require protection from a variety of threats that exist in cyber space.

Vulnerable Network Security

Despite SCADA networks' importance, they also present a security risk. These networks were initially designed to maximize functionality, with little attention paid to security. As a result, performance, reliability, flexibility and safety of distributed control/SCADA systems are robust, while the security of these systems is often weak.

This makes some SCADA networks potentially vulnerable to disruption of service, process redirection, or manipulation of operational data that could result in public safety concerns and/or serious disruptions to the critical infrastructure of a nation or an enterprise.

The LogPoint Solution

Highly targeted attacks in complex SCADA networks, requires complex event monitoring from both the SCADA infrastructure as well as IT. LogPoint collects all these events from the entire enterprise to deliver back-to-back security monitoring and protection.

LogPoint adds even further value to enterprises by its smooth integration with most ERP systems, such as SAP, enabling true proactive IT security insights as well as providing a platform for excellent Compliance with industry standards like NIST, NERC CIP v5 and the 20 Critical Security Controls defined by the Consortium for Cybersecurity Action, CCA in 2012.
