Cynalytica Launches OTNetGuard, the Industrial Control System Monitoring Sensor


Cynalytica Inc., a provider of industrial cybersecurity solutions, is proud to announce the launch of its groundbreaking Industrial Control System (ICS/SCADA) monitoring sensor. OTNetGuard is a highly versatile cutting-edge solution that passively and securely captures analogue, serial, and IP communications, closing the significant capabilities gap in the complete monitoring of OT networks. 

With the increasing frequency and sophistication of cyberattacks targeting OT networks, monitoring and protecting critical infrastructure systems has never been more critical. OTNetGuard represents a significant step forward in industrial cybersecurity, providing unparalleled insight into Industrial Control Systems communications.

OTNetGuard provides optional secure wireless backhaul capabilities for organisations that need to monitor remote or difficult-to-access locations. This also makes it an ideal Zero Trust Network Architectures platform for OT environments. It enables organisations to maintain high out-of-band situational awareness of potential cyber-physical threats and operational anomalies.

“OTNetGuard is transformative for industrial control operations,” said Richard Robinson, CEO of Cynalytica, “by now having the ability to monitor all communications, organisations can establish a complete baseline of behaviour and quickly identify any deviations from that baseline. This allows them to detect and respond to potential threats in real-time before they can cause significant damage or harm.”

OTNetGuard Platform offers a unique range of advanced features:

  • Real-Time Capture and Monitoring of Analog, Serial, and IP Communications.
  • Easy Integration: The platform can be easily integrated into existing third-party SIEM, SOAR or GRC platforms, providing a seamless and cost-effective tool for improving cyber-physical operations.
  • Advanced Analytics: The OTNetGuard provides advanced analytics, forensics and alerting, allowing organisations to rapidly gain insights into potential cyber-physical events and improve their operational and defence strategies.

“OTNetGuard is designed to provide comprehensive visibility into critical infrastructure networks, allowing organisations to identify and respond to cyber threats quickly. By incorporating advanced analytics, we’re able to deliver real-time insights and actionable intelligence, helping our customers stay ahead of the curve in today’s rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape,” said Jessica Ohnona, EVP – Data Science & Analytics of Cynalytica.
