First Detection Tool of its Kind
In today's cybersecurity climate, OT (OT = Operational Technology - using hardware and software to control industrial equipment) executives are looking for a low-effort USB device management solution that solves a problem that is very painful. Not only is there a need to find ways to more securely use and monitor removable media, but USB device compliance requirements are increasing. Unfortunately, many cybersecurity tools and strategies have failed to adapt to evolving operational requirements while adding excessive cost and labor to deal with evolving hardware-based threats such as Rubber Ducky's or Bash Bunny's.
In industries such as refining, pulp and paper, oil and gas, mining - minerals and metals, pharmaceuticals, power generation, buildings, manufacturing, and aerospace, removable media is critical to maintaining the availability and security of plant processes, yet poses potential security risks.
Unfortunately, information technology (IT) security approaches are often inappropriate for production and manufacturing environments. Even if these approaches are acceptable for the enterprise network, they can be disastrous in an operational technology (OT) environment. It is well known that IT-related anti-virus (AV) software can miss OT vulnerabilities, and IT monitoring tools can generate control network traffic that disrupts critical process commands.
SMX is designed to help customers reduce their cybersecurity risks and limit business disruptions by monitoring, better protecting, and logging the use of removable media in industrial facilities. It modernizes asset security by combining a consumer-friendly USB scanner with cloud-based updates for industrial cybersecurity threats. The SMX solution simplifies compliance and site auditing by creating logs of removable media activity throughout the plant.
