Enhancements in Ordr SCE 7.2 Give Enterprises Additional Capabilities to Manage and Secure Unprecedented Growth of Connected Devices
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ordr, the leader in security for enterprise IoT and unmanaged devices, today announced new capabilities in the company's Systems Control Engine (SCE) 7.2 software. This release further extends IoT and unmanaged device visibility and classification, enabling organizations to monitor for risks and proactively strengthen infrastructure via automated segmentation policy generation and enforcement. Enhanced analytics also provide organizations with insights into device utilization to inform budgetary and maintenance decisions, allowing for better management of capital resources. The 7.2 release also addresses and mitigates risks from Ripple20 vulnerabilities.
IDC predicts that there will be 41.5 billion connected IoT devices by 2025. The diversity of IP-enabled devices includes everything from vending machines and printers, to mission-critical MRI machines and security cameras. However, these devices can be difficult to secure as they often run old or obsolete operating systems, cannot support corporate endpoint security agents, or cannot be taken offline to be patched. Device ownership and utility is split among diverse groups, which exacerbates this problem as most organizations are not aware of all of the devices connected to the network. These challenges underscore the need for a platform that brings together IT, Security, and IoT Operational owners.
"With this latest version of the Ordr Systems Control Engine, we are further delivering on our promise of providing the most comprehensive enterprise IoT security platform in the market," said Gnanaprakasam Pandian, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Ordr. "We've expanded our device classification capabilities, enriched our device insights, and extended our integrations. Networking teams, security teams, lines of business owners, facilities teams, and IoT device owners can standardize on the Ordr platform while addressing specific IoT device security needs."
Ordr SCE discovers every connected device, maps communications patterns, and assesses risks. Based on sanctioned device communications patterns, segmentation policies can be created and enforced across networking and security infrastructure to isolate mission-critical devices - those that share protected confidential information or run vulnerable operating systems. Ordr SCE allows for an agentless deployment, which can be delivered at scale via the cloud or as an on-premise solution.
"Vulnerabilities such as the recently discovered Ripple20 reinforce the challenges organizations face with connected IoT and OT devices. In response, we've incorporated a Ripple20 active scanner into the Ordr SCE to help organizations accurately identify, or verify, if a device is at risk. We can also detect exploits of Ripple20 and isolate impacted devices," said Jeff Horne, CSO, Ordr. "These continuing threats validate the need for proactive protection based on rich visibility into the behavior of connected devices to combat current and future vulnerabilities."
Key highlights of Ordr SCE 7.2 include:
-- Broader and Deeper Visibility and Classification for Internet of Medical
Things (IoMT)Ordr further extends its understanding of millions of IoMT
devices. SCE 7.2 adds visibility and context for critical medical
devices - such as blood analyzers, patient monitors, protocol analyzers
- as well as unmanaged endpoints and workstations, including those that
may be deployed behind existing network gateways.
-- New Visibility and Classification for Building Automation and Control
SystemsFacilities managers in enterprises including healthcare,
manufacturing, and retail organizations have adopted IoT for physical
security of critical infrastructure, energy efficiency, and employees'
comfort and convenience. These controllers manage access, energy, and
environmental air quality, which are critical to business operations.
SCE 7.2 adds support for smart building systems including Honeywell,
Johnson, Tridium, and Lutron BACnet controllers to ensure facilities
teams can operate state of the art systems without compromising
-- Enhanced Device Insights IT and OT teams need access to rich device
insights to identify underutilized high-capital equipment, to ensure the
longevity of certain devices, or to address compliance. SCE 7.2 enhances
the solution's already strong device and utilization insights:
-- Device utilization - During the COVID-19 surge, customers used Ordr
to identify and quickly repurpose underutilized devices and track
high demand devices such as ventilators. In this release, Ordr
enables enhanced utilization insights for additional devices such as
Hospira, Braun, and Smiths Medical infusion pumps.
-- Device user mapping - Ordr can extract the latest authentication
information via Active Directory/LDAP, WinRM/WMI, and Kerberos to
identify device users. Such information is critical to locate
devices associated with a specific owner or to identify the most
recent authenticated login during a security incident.
-- Extended list of integrations Ordr has one of the most comprehensive
sets of product integrations in the market. Ordr provides value to
networking, security, and device owners via built-in integrations that
can mitigate organizational risks and increase efficiency. Integrations
in this release include:
-- Discovery: Computer maintenance management systems (CMMS) including
enhanced integration with Nuvolo.
-- Risk: Vulnerability management solutions such as Rapid7 and Tenable
to inform an overall risk posture but also enable vulnerability
identification in networks with sensitive devices that cannot
withstand active scans.
-- IT and SecOps: Security operations center (SOC) and IT service
management (ITSM) tools such as Splunk, ServiceNow, and LogRhythm.
-- Networking and Infrastructure: Check Point, Palo Alto Networks,
Cisco ISE, Aruba ClearPass, and Infoblox.
-- Additional information can be found in the latest Integrations
-- Ripple20 solution(1) - JSOF recently published information on 19
vulnerabilities they found in the Treck TCP/IP software used by many
device manufacturers. Ordr SCE can detect devices impacted using a
built-in Ripple20 scanner as well as detect active exploitation using
the Ordr intrusion detection engine. Ordr then proactively isolates
impacted devices by dynamically generating policies and enforcing them
on network devices or next-generation firewalls. For more information on
how Ordr can help detect and mitigate these vulnerabilities, see the
latest Ordr Security Bulletin.
(1 )Available in 7.2.R5, 7.2.R6 and 7.2.R7 releases.
Ordr secures the millions of enterprise IoT and unmanaged devices such as manufacturing machines, building systems, medical equipment, printers and more that run within global networks. The Ordr Systems Control Engine uses machine learning to automatically discover and classify every IoT and unmanaged device, map all communications, detect and prioritize vulnerabilities, and then proactively secure each device through dynamic policy generation and segmentation. Organizations use Ordr to discover their devices, track usage, achieve proactive protection and compliance. For more information about Ordr, go to www.ordr.net.
