Availability monitoring and cybersecurity
for industrial networks
Rhebo and PRTG offer a comprehensive monitoring solution for IT and OT environments:
from condition monitoring through to anomaly and threat detection.
Predictive maintenance, retrofitting, Industry 4.0: Digitalization in the industrial sector is allowing formerly isolated production plants to become open to the Internet, digitalized, and integrated with IT. This digitalization gives rise to several new security threats (viruses, ransomware, Trojans, etc.). In addition, OT systems are subject to entirely different technical requirements and specifications which create a whole new set of tasks for many IT methods and systems.
Nevertheless, digitalization offers enormous potential and represents the future of the industrial sector. If industrial companies wish to remain competitive, they have no choice but to digitalize. Thankfully, there are strategies and tools which can help these companies along the way. Paessler and Rhebo have teamed up to combine PRTG Network Monitor with the Rhebo Industrial Protector to create a comprehensive solution that ensures both the security and the availability of industrial networks.
Threat and anomaly detection with Rhebo
Rhebo develops vendor-independent threat detection systems and network condition monitoring tools for industrial environments. Rhebo solutions detect anomalies in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) in a passive and non-intrusive manner, thereby creating (among other things) a database for risk assessment and inventory management. Rhebo uses deep packet inspection to detect and report technical errors and attacks as well as to perform forensic analysis. The company also offers professional services to help with advanced diagnosis and respond to reported anomalies and threats.
With these products and services, Rhebo provides for reliable protection against attacks and malfunctions in industrial networks.
Monitoring of IT/OT environments with PRTG
Paessler is the developer of PRTG Network Monitor, one of the leading IT monitoring solutions in the world. By supporting industrial methods and protocols such as JSON, MQTT, OPC-UA, and Modbus, PRTG expands a traditional IT portfolio and provides for a monitoring solution for the consolidation of IT and OT. PRTG collects data on the availability and performance of devices, data traffic, and services. The software sends alerts when predefined thresholds are exceeded and publishes monitoring data in dashboards and reports.
PRTG ensures that problems with IT/OT infrastructures and data traffic are detected early, allowing for prompt troubleshooting and the prevention of disruptions.
Security and reliability with Rhebo and PRTG
Together, PRTG and Rhebo provide for an all-in-one system monitoring solution. PRTG monitors the entire IT environment and
large parts of the OT environment, while Rhebo monitors the ICS (Industrial Control System) and identifies anomalies to provide the
missing information from the industrial environment, and complements its monitoring with advanced services and in-depth analyses.
Due to the specifications of OT networks, “pull-based” IT monitoring methods are not always possible.
Rhebo complements PRTG with its passive monitoring methods, as well as its ability to collect data in real time.
Monitoring at all levels: PRTG and Rhebo provide for comprehensive protection for IT/OT convergence.
