OT Asset Management
Use Case – Lansweeper for OT Asset Management

Gain Complete Visibility and Control over Your OT


  • OT Asset Management: Plan and manage changes, maintenance and equipment refreshes.
  • Pinpoint and remediate vulnerabilities: Reduce the risk of downtime and security incidents across your OT infrastructure.
  • Single pane of glass: Discover, inventory and manage all your IT, OT and IoT in one place.

Operational Technology Management

Do you know your Operational Technology?

OT is everywhere, from assembly lines to manufacturing plants, public infrastructure, and healthcare facilities. With the convergence of IT and OT, companies are at greater risk of downtime and cyber attacks. To combat these challenges, complete visibility and control across all connected OT systems and devices through OT Asset Management are critical.

However, OT is typically expensive and difficult to update or replace. Outdated devices can pose a significant risk, but taking them offline means interrupting business operations. As such, they often run for years continuously, with little maintenance.

Lansweeper OT Asset Management

Lansweeper OT enables organizations to scan, detect and identify a wide range of OT devices from popular manufacturers such as Siemens, Rockwell Automation, Mitsubishi Electric, and Schneider Electric. IT teams can quickly and easily create a complete and accurate OT asset inventory, appended with detailed information such as manufacturer, model, serial number, firmware versions, and more. This information can be used to plan and manage maintenance, identify and remediate firmware vulnerabilities, and ensure OT systems and devices are protected and up-to-date at all times.


OT Device Discovery for Specialized Protocols

OT devices are often used to perform real-time monitoring on the manufacturing floor, out in the field, on construction sites, or in protected environments such as a hospital room or laboratory. These devices use specialized protocols to transmit information, which makes them more difficult to scan. Lansweeper OT leverages specialized protocols such as Siemens S7 Communication, EtherNet/IP, Melsec, Modbus, BACnet, and OPCUA to speak the same language as OT systems and devices automatically scan, identify and collect detailed information about them in seconds.

Lansweeper is one of the OT asset discovery tools that utilize a specific Selective Probing approach to reduce the risk of interference.

OT Asset Management

Reduce the Risk of Cyber Attacks

Unlike IT and IoT, OT systems are not patched or upgraded on a regular basis. Hackers find and exploit vulnerabilities in order to steal valuable data or infiltrate the corporate network. DDoS attacks, ransomware, and other types of malware are common tactics. An attack on OT can be crippling to an organization, bringing operations to a halt. With complete visibility across all OT devices, IT teams can ensure they are updated and protected with the latest security protocols and that no vulnerabilities exist that could provide gateways for devastating cyber attacks.


All Your IT, IoT and OT – In One Place

Lansweeper OT asset discovery enables organizations to create a complete and accurate OT asset inventory and detailed information about every connected OT device – data that can be added to Lansweeper’s rich IT and IoT information datastore. Organizations gain a holistic view of all connected assets – IT, IoT, and OT – from a single pane of glass. With complete visibility across their entire technology estate, IT teams can make data-driven decisions about how to manage best, optimize and secure their technology infrastructure.
