Scan devices from popular manufacturers leveraging specialized OT protocols.
Maintain a complete and accurate OT asset inventory with detailed data about each device.
Fix vulnerabilities to reduce downtime, and optimize the cost and performance of your OT.
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 Outdated devices can pose a significant risk, but taking them offline means interrupting business operations.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 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 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.
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.
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.
