This hardware device seamlessly installs in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and other legacy control systems. Once installed on the serial network, it intercepts communications between various field devices and controllers. It then transforms the intercepted serial communications data into a data packet, which it sends out via the device’s integrated Ethernet port to a backend appliance and higher-level computing systems for critical systems monitoring, intrusion detection and asset management by the company’s suite of industrial cybersecurity tools. It operates like a traditional network tap or a mirrored port on a managed switch, and makes it appear that data from communicating devices is forwarded out of the Ethernet port. The device’s embedded computer parses and transforms the serial data passively, without adding any computational overhead or failure points to critical communication networks. Data sent out via the Ethernet port can be analyzed using third-party network security tools or the company’s Cynalytic, which combines a set of biomimetic and machine-learning technologies to identify emergent security threats.
