Secure your critical information infrastructure, secure the nation. ValueMentor helps you secure the ICS / SCADA environments

Industrial Control Systems, specifically the older installations, are often deployed as isolated installations, with no access to the external networks including the internet. Most of their security controls revolve around physical security. Today, these ICS networks are getting connected indirectly and true network isolation is becoming uncommon. Initiatives like Digital Transformation leads the business case towards ICS systems integration with business networks. Also, some malware can use extreme tactics to connect the air-gaped networks to the internet.

Attackers controlling an ICS environment can not only destruct the data but also disrupt the production, physical damage and risk the lives of people.

Benefits of SCADA / ICS Security Testing

A Penetration test is useful only if the penetration tester provides you with an actionable report which is easy to understand and explains each risk in detail.

  • Reduces the exposed attack surface associated with known vulnerabilities. Patches are frequently released in response to publicly identified vulnerabilities.
  • Eliminates the readily exploitable code associated with unnecessary services on control system servers and workstations
  • Reduces or eliminates the vulnerabilities ranging from default accounts to weak passwords that provide opportunities for an intruder to enter the system.
  • Eliminates directory traversal attacks and other common vulnerabilities.
  • Industrial safety
