Identifying All Devices on a Network

At Merlin, we believe that an effective cybersecurity strategy starts with accurately identifying all devices on a network. And by “all” devices we truly mean any device that connects to a wired or wireless (Wi-Fi, Zigbee, etc.) network. This includes end-user computers, mobile devices, servers, IoT (pumps, monitors, robots, etc.), OT (lighting, HVAC, sensors, cameras, etc.) and the layers of network infrastructure the devices connect to. This device inventory needs to be continuously monitored and new device admission must be centrally controlled to ensure new threats are not introduced.

A Single Point of Administration and Governance

The second major piece of a cybersecurity strategy is a single point of administration and governance of the identity of all users with access to the devices and applications that are critical to the operation of the business. This consolidated view of users, roles, entitlements, and privileges is a prerequisite for effectively dealing with the leading source of cybersecurity incidents –internal staff. As with devices, continuous monitoring and comparison of expected access vs. real access is required.

Continuous Visibility of your Cybersecurity Ecosystem

The third and final piece of the puzzle is an advanced cybersecurity profiling platform that aggregates, consolidates and integrates cybersecurity tool output. The data is then mapped to thousands of critical security controls (CSCs) which are grouped into industry standard frameworks with predefined thresholds and severities. The CSCs feed into calculations of security domain and tool scores that are trended over time to determine baselines and generate alerts when one or more CSC scores vary from user customizable thresholds.  All of the above is presented in an intuitive and elegant user interface with user definable views and role-based access control.
