Microsoft NCE Defender for IoT

Complete IoT and ICS/OT security

Discover all your IoT/OT devices

Use passive, agentless network monitoring to safely gain a complete inventory of all your IoT/OT assets, with zero impact on IoT/OT performance. Analyze diverse and proprietary industrial protocols to visualize your IoT/OT network topology and see communication paths, and then use that information to accelerate network segmentation and zero trust initiatives. Identify equipment details such as manufacturer, device type, serial number, firmware level, and backplane layouts. Quickly identify the root cause of operational issues such as misconfigured devices and networks.

Protect devices with a risk-based approach

Protect devices with a risk-based approach Proactively address vulnerabilities in your IoT/OT environment. Identify risks such as missing patches, open ports, unauthorized applications, and unauthorized subnet connections. Detect changes to device configurations, controller logic, and firmware. Prioritize fixes based on risk scoring and automated threat modeling, which identifies and visualizes the most likely attack paths for adversaries to compromise your most critical or crown jewel assets.

Detect threats with IoT/OT behavioral analytics

Monitor for anomalous or unauthorized activity using IoT/OT-aware behavioral analytics and threat intelligence. Strengthen IoT/OT zero trust security by instantly detecting unauthorized remote access and unauthorized or compromised devices. Rapidly triage real-time alerts, investigate historical traffic, and hunt for threats. Catch modern threats like zero-day malware and living-off-the-land tactics missed by static indicators of compromise (IOCs). Explore full-fidelity packet captures (PCAPs) for deeper analysis.

Unify IT/OT security with SIEM/SOAR and XDR

Get a bird's-eye view across IT/OT boundaries with interoperability with Microsoft Sentinel, cloud-native SIEM/SOAR. Automate response with IoT/OT playbooks. Use machine learning and threat intelligence from trillions of signals collected daily across the global Microsoft ecosystem (such as endpoints, cloud, Azure Active Directory, and Microsoft 365), augmented by IoT/OT-specific intelligence collected by a specialized Microsoft Section 52 security research team. Prevent attacks with extended detection and response (XDR) from Microsoft 365 Defender. Plus, get interoperability with other SOC tools such as Splunk, IBM QRadar, and ServiceNow.
