Nozomi announced its Guardian solution for real-time cyber security and OT and IoT network visibility has received Cisco Compatible certification to integrate with Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE).
The Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) offers a network-based approach for adaptable, trusted access everywhere, based on context. It provides intelligent, integrated protection through intent-based policy and compliance solutions. And it is all delivered with streamlined, centralized management that lets users scale securely.
This latest Cisco integration provides comprehensive visibility into OT and IoT assets so IT teams can holistically secure ubiquitous access, streamline connectivity, and ensure they apply security best practices across all their networks.
“As more organizations move toward converged IT, OT and IoT networks, expanding relationships with IT vendors like Cisco can improve customer outcomes,” said 451 Research Analyst Patrick Daly. “These types of integrations enable customers to build more advanced functionality for IT, OT and IoT security and visibility.”
Integrated with ISE via Cisco’s pxGrid (Platform Exchange Grid), Guardian detects new OT and IoT assets as they are introduced to an environment and sends context-rich alerts to ISE to take action. With Nozomi Networks Guardian deployed at the access switch or router in OT and IoT networks, Cisco ISE can enforce policies to block or authorize endpoints. This enables IT teams responsible for managing network access to define and manage security policies based on identity and location of operational and IoT assets. This integration also permits Guardian to instruct Cisco ISE to place an offending endpoint into an Adaptive Network Control quarantine policy, to take actions against the offending endpoint as a condition in the global authorization policy.
