Empower Your Manufacturing Facility with OT SafetyNet:  An OT Asset Discovery & Recovery Solution

Are you prepared to face the threats that could bring your operations to a grinding halt?  In today's interconnected world, the typical manufacturing facility is a breeding ground for potential disasters. With multiple industrial automation solutions and systems designed by different vendors and delivered over a wide range of time, routine maintenance and backups are often overlooked or unidentified, leaving manufacturers' OT assets vulnerable to:

  • Data Loss: Without proper backups, critical manufacturing data stored in systems, databases, or software can be permanently lost due to hardware failure, software corruption, or accidental deletion. This loss can disrupt production processes, hinder decision-making, and result in financial losses.
  • System Downtime: In the absence of backups, a manufacturing facility may experience extended system downtime in the event of a failure. This can bring production to a halt, disrupt supply chains, delay deliveries, and lead to dissatisfied customers.
  • Compliance and Regulatory Issues: Various industries have strict compliance and regulatory requirements that manufacturers must adhere to. Failure to back up and protect data can lead to compliance violations, legal repercussions, fines, and damage to the company's reputation.
  • Cyber Attacks: Cyber-attacks pose a significant and ever-increasing threat to manufacturers who do not prioritize backups. Without adequate backup measures in place, manufacturers become vulnerable to a range of devastating consequences resulting from cyber-attacks.

SafetyNet: Our OT Asset Discovery and Backup Service

We understand the rising concerns surrounding these vulnerabilities, and with our SafetyNet solution, we shed light on the hidden dangers lurking in manufacturing facilities. Our comprehensive solution encompasses a series of cyclical phases designed to fortify your operations against potential pitfalls:

  1. Network Inventory:

Industrial Control Systems are ever-growing and evolving aspects of a manufacturing plant. Our experts conduct a thorough inventory, providing you with a detailed list of all Operational Technology (OT) assets communicating within your network. By documenting every device's name, IP address, ports used, and device type, we ensure that nothing goes unnoticed. But it doesn't end there; we perform regular searches to
keep configurations and addressing up to date.

Some examples of the Operational Technology assets we cover include:


  1. System Backup and Health Check:

Following the Network Inventory phase, we dive deeper into securing your OT assets and systems. Our experts take backup files from every asset discovered during the assessment. These backup files will be meticulously organized and stored in a mutually agreed-upon secure location.

In order to ensure the ongoing integrity of your critical infrastructure, we offer flexible options for maintaining and updating these backups:

  • Quarterly Backups: Opting for quarterly backups provides the advantage of frequent snapshots. This schedule allows for quick recovery and minimal operational disruption.
  • Biannual Backups: If you prefer a balanced approach that supports operational efficiency, biannual backups may be the ideal choice. With backups occurring twice a year, you can maintain a reasonable level of backup coverage reducing the risk in the event of unexpected incidents.
  • Annual Backups: For organizations with less frequent recovery needs, annual backups offer a cost-effective solution. These backups provide an annual snapshot of your systems, serving as essential resources for recovery purposes.

Additionally, we conduct system health checks to ensure your software is error-free, databases are within size limits, and software performance meets specifications. If any issues are detected, we will address them or provide recommendations for the next steps.

  1. Disaster Recovery Plan:

Prepare for the worst with our comprehensive Disaster Recovery Plan. Together, we create a detailed document outlining the precise steps to take in the event of a failure. This plan will be carefully crafted and agreed upon by both parties.

As part of our commitment to your security, we offer periodic reviews to incorporate any updates or changes necessary during the maintenance period. Rest assured, your Disaster Recovery Plan will be documented, verified, and ready to spring into action when needed most.

  1. Disaster Recovery Training:

Knowledge is power, especially in times of crisis. Our Disaster Recovery Review and Training session will equip you with the skills to execute the recovery process outlined in your Disaster Recovery Plan. Our experts will guide you through the steps necessary to restore your plant to its pre-failure state. With this training, you will gain the confidence to face any disaster head-on.
