Comprehensive xIoT Security Management for Energy & Utilities

Unified xIoT Security Management Platform for OT, ICS, and SCADA Cyber-Physical Systems.

Key benefits of the Unified xIoT Security Management Platform

See every xIoT device. Secure every xIoT device.

The challenge

OT, ICS, and SCADA systems are an essential and mission-critical part of utilities, energy, and oil & gas companies. But because they were historically air-gapped, they have fewer built-in protections and are more vulnerable to attacks and ransomware. And, the lack of scalable, cost-effective, and prevention-based xIoT security solutions means that securing these sensitive and mission-critical cyber-physical systems and assets is slow, complex, error-prone, costly, and manual – due to the resource and infrastructure dependencies of legacy scanners and passive discovery solutions.​ 

IoT Visibility:

Legacy active solutions fail with OT/ICS and SCADA assets primarily because of their intrusive, brute-force device scanning approaches that result in disrupted or dramatically degraded operations. Legacy passive discovery solutions are dependent on network monitoring to perform discovery, resulting in limited visibility, inaccurate inventory, long mean-time-to-inventory, infrastructure dependencies, and high network performance impact.

xIoT Risk Reduction: 
The lack of safe, prevention-based xIoT security solutions for energy, utilities, and oil & gas environments means that organizations have had no ability to find, identify, and prevent OT, ICS, and SCADA system security risks, let alone meet the key cybersecurity recommendations set forth by the Department of Energy. This includes best practices for security, such as continuous monitoring & alerting, changing default cyber-physical system passwords, or fixing risky configurations on embedded devices.

xIoT Monitoring & Automated Alerts:
One of the biggest challenges for long-term xIoT security in critical infrastructure and OT environments is ‘environmental drift,’ which inadvertently diminishes device security. 

The Phosphorus​ solution

The Phosphorus Unified xIoT Security Management Platform is a comprehensive breach prevention solution for securing OT, ICS, IIoT, SCADA systems and other xIoT devices in energy, utilities, and oil & gas organizations. 


Oh. So. Safe.

Device SAFETY is the foundational characteristic of the Phosphorus platform and approach. No brute-force scanning here. Only safe and intelligent active xIoT discovery using native device protocols. ​ 


Oh. So. Fast.

See complete xIoT discovery results in a fraction of the time as it happens. Using Customized Agendas, Phosphorus IAD generates tiered probe sequences designed to increase the speed of discovery, while dramatically reducing unnecessary traffic on the network. 


Oh. So. Accurate.

Complete xloT estate visibility and posture assessment. Phosphorus collects deep, granular device metadata to provide 100% device certainty the first time, every time.


Monitor Anything 

Monitor OT/ICS/SCADA device state to detect and alert on configuration or environmental drift. Keep an eye on on-site changes, like the ol’ “paper clip reset” or resets to factory settings, while looking for new or rogue devices being added to your network.


Remediate Your Way

The power to harden and remediate OT and ICS device vulnerabilities is at your fingertips. Whether it is default credentials, open and risky ports, End-of-Life and assets, or critical firmware patching, harden or remediate devices with full control–ensuring the safety of the entire OT/ICS/SCADA environment.


Common Use Cases

Intelligent Active Discovery & Risk Assessment

Accurate discovery of existing OT, ICS, and IIoT assets is essential in securing any oil & gas organization. The discovery process needs to be custom designed for an xIoT environment. Phosphorus’s Intelligent Active Discovery delivers the industry’s most accurate, fast, and easy-to-deploy discovery and assessment solution.

Password Hardening, Device Hardening, & Isolation

It is not enough to just identify vulnerable OT, ICS, and IIoT assets. It is necessary to take action in order to minimize risk. Whether it is default credentials, open and risky ports, or End-of-Life and unsupported assets, Phosphorus enables security practitioners to harden or isolate devices with full control–ensuring the safety of the entire oil & gas environment.

Remediation & Patch Management

Many xIoT assets in oil & gas environments have vulnerable firmware or expired certificates that have never been updated. The Phosphorus Platform tracks firmware and certificates on xIoT assets and provides full control to upgrade or downgrade firmware, or update expired or self-signed certificates – all at your fingertips.

Integration with Existing Solutions

Any security solution brought into an organization must integrate with existing IT stack solutions to deliver rapid ROI. Phosphorus integrates with leading IT solutions such as PAM, SIEM, SOAR, and asset or vulnerability management vendors.

Continuous Monitoring & Management

Continuously monitor your xIoT attack surface with Phosphorus to detect and alert on configuration drift, elevate deviations from an optimally secure state, and facilitate taking response actions.
