Asset management for OT cybersecurity


Asset management for OT cybersecurity

The Herakles network management system developed by AIT Solutions is a versatile monitoring and predictive maintenance system that implements the requirements of all important use cases in the various life cycle phases of a machine or plant.

Network management is not an annoying duty, but a valuable tool over the entire life cycle of a machine or system. Good network management supports and simplifies project documentation from engineering, commissioning, and plant handover to operation. It performs important tasks such as diagnosis, predictive maintenance, and asset management, and also helps to keep the plant documentation up to date, thus contributing to industrial security.

AIT Solutions´ Herakles, which is designed specifically for Profinet networks, not only manages predictive maintenance, diagnosis and asset management, but also the lifecycles of all individual devices. Herakles comprehensive services include plant-wide consolidation of all assets from a Profinet network, the detection of topological changes in the network, tracking of device life cycles, and the detection and reporting of configuration changes of network devices.

The detailed recording of all assets is a basic measure for cybersecurity in operational technology (OT). Only when all system and device details are known, effective defensive measures can be defined.
