The ProtectWise Sensor, a freely available lightweight software sensor, can be deployed anywhere within the enterprise to optimize, and securely stream network traffic to the ProtectWise Grid. ProtectWise allows unlimited instances of these lightweight sensors, enabling dense network coverage that wasn’t possible before. Integration with firewalls, threat detection, packet brokers, orchestration and endpoint security systems, ensures that ProtectWise accounts for the entire enterprise security context when detecting advanced attacks and insider threats.
The ProtectWise Sensor can be deployed in public, private and hybrid clouds, enabling the ProtectWise Grid to secure business occurring outside of traditional enterprise boundaries. The sensor is hypervisor-agnostic, so any modern virtualization vendor (e.g., VMWare, Xen, KVM) or IaaS (e.g., Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform) can be used to securely scale your business operations, without compromising on visibility, retrospection or threat detection.
Industrial Control Systems (ICS)
The ProtectWise Sensor can be deployed on industrial control systems (e.g., SCADA systems, PCS/PCN) which direct processes in the critical infrastructure (e.g., oil & gas, electricity). Due to increased connectivity to the Internet and IT networks, the critical infrastructure is vulnerable to targeted attacks as common IT security features are often absent in ICS protocols. By capturing, analyzing and retaining ICS network traffic, the ProtectWise Grid enables the safety, availability and integrity of the critical infrastructure.
