Most industrial Control Systems (ICS) lack basic asset discovery and management capabilities common in IT networks.

While many companies are concerned about cyber threats to their operations, most do not understand the difference between data plane and control plane protocols.
Barak Perelman's picture
Securing ICS networks is an extremely challenging task, as they lack many of the threat monitoring, detection, and response capabilities commonly found in IT infrastructures.
