Securing Industrial Control Systems (ICS) networks has never been more crucial, especially as cyber threats targeting critical infrastructure continue to grow. One key aspect of securing ICS networks is implementing micro-segmentation, a concept that has proven to be effective, yet challenging to apply.
That's where Elisity comes in, providing a powerful and innovative solution that simplifies micro-segmentation for ICS networks. In this blog, we'll explore:
So, buckle up and join us as we dive into the world of ICS network security with Elisity!
The IEC 62443 standard is an internationally recognized set of guidelines designed to help organizations protect their Industrial Control Systems (ICS) networks from cyber threats. With the increasing number of cyber-attacks targeting critical infrastructure, adhering to this standard is essential for organizations to ensure the security and resilience of their ICS networks.
This comprehensive standard covers a wide range of aspects, including:
Network segmentation plays a critical role in mitigating the risk of cyber-attacks.
Enter the Elisity platform, an innovative solution that simplifies the process of implementing micro-segmentation in ICS networks, enabling organizations to meet the IEC 62443 standard's segmentation requirements with ease. The Elisity platform helps organizations achieve rapid time-to-value by not requiring additional hardware or changes to their existing network architecture.
With its powerful features, such as:
Elisity empowers security engineers to build and deploy least privileged access policies with confidence. By choosing the Elisity platform, organizations can strengthen their ICS network security, effectively comply with the IEC 62443 standard, and safeguard their critical infrastructure against cyber threats.
With the Elisity platform, defining zones and policy groups becomes a breeze, providing a user-friendly interface to create zones based on various criteria such as device type, role, or location. By categorizing assets within the ICS network, security engineers can develop a clear understanding of the communication requirements between these assets.
Once the zones and policy groups are defined, building conduits and policies in Elisity is a straightforward process. Security engineers can easily define allowed communication between zones using specific protocols and ports, ensuring that only necessary connections are permitted.
With the platform's real-time traffic flow visualization and its ability to display the impact of policies before deployment, engineers can create and fine-tune their policies with confidence, minimizing the risk of unintended network disruptions.
Policy deployment and management with confidence is a cornerstone of the Elisity platform. With its unique features, such as the ability to save policies without immediate deployment, security engineers can ensure minimal disruption to their network operations.
The platform's traffic flow visualization allows engineers to see the real-time impact of their policies, offering a clear understanding of the affected users, devices, and applications before policy deployment.
The Elisity platform empowers organizations to rapidly implement effective micro-segmentation, fulfilling IEC 62443 requirements within weeks without adding additional hardware or changing their existing network architecture. In conclusion, the Elisity platform stands out as a powerful tool for organizations looking to enhance their ICS network security and adhere to the IEC 62443 standard.
In conclusion, the Elisity platform offers a comprehensive and innovative solution for securing ICS networks by simplifying the implementation of micro-segmentation. It addresses the challenges associated with meeting the IEC 62443 standard, enabling organizations to strengthen their network security and protect their critical infrastructure from cyber threats.
By providing features such as:
