Fortinet

Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem provides you with integrated solutions for comprehensive end-to-end security. Such solutions contain physical firewalls, antivirus software, intrusion prevention systems, and endpoint security components.
 

Your Benefit

We offer collaborative solutions to protect critical infrastructures and the grid from cyberattacks. They are equally useful and usable for both power engineers and IT security officers. Our partnership with Fortinet builds a bridge between IT and OT: Fortinet knows the current threat situation on the Internet, while OMICRON knows the threats to protection, control technology, and the electrical grid. Together, we empower you to achieve an unprecedented level of security through cross-industry expertise.

 

Practical Benefits of the Partnership

COMPATIBLE

Fortinet knows the threat situation on the Internet, while OMICRON knows the threats to protection, control technology, and the electrical grid. The compatibility of our solutions is guaranteed. Fortinet products are included in the development of our products from the very beginning.

FUNCTIONAL

The functionality of our products builds on each other. This facilitates mutual integration as well as data exchange. In the event of a security alert, decisions can be made faster and more accurately because detailed data is available more quickly.

CARING

Both manufacturers are responsible for their products and take care of your needs. The turn-around time for your questions and reports will be short, and issues can be resolved momentarily.


Integration of OMICRON StationGuard into FortiSIEM

StationGuard is tailor-made for the energy sector. It detects threats to the infrastructure and provides an overview over all devices in the network and their status for guaranteed asset visibility.

By combining our solution with Fortinet’s SIEM FortiSIEM, all alarms from StationGuard - including its OT intelligence - are transmitted to FortiSIEM and collected in one place. Over 130 event types with their corresponding event type groups and an easy-to-understand dashboard help Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts to secure your IT and OT.

Benefits of the joint FortiSIEM and OMICRON StationGuard solution:

  • You can integrate StationGuard in Fortinet’s SIEM FortiSIEM within seconds.  
  • StationGuard effectively traces alarms to events in the grid. These highly intelligent alarm messages are, thus, directly available in FortiSIEM and help your Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts to make the right decision immediately.  
  • Fortinet’s SIEM application enables immediate incident responses and deeper analysis of StationGuard events in correlation with other messages. These are integrated in Fortinet's User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) engine.  
  • OMICRON's OT expertise and know-how is anchored in the SOC. This results in improved visibility of OT threats in the enterprise and provides comprehensive protection against attacks on IT as well as OT.

OMICRON StationGuard App on Splunkbase

Download the OMICRON StationGuard App on Splunkbase here.

Our OT intrusion detection solution StationGuard monitors Ethernet networks in the power grid and identifies cyber threats, unauthorized activities, malfunctions, and vulnerabilities. This combination of cybersecurity and functional monitoring identifies new threats and yet unknown attack scenarios as well as various types of malfunctions.

The StationGuard App for Splunk maps and visualizes the data received from a StationGuard device (via TCP/UDP) in a decidedly clear and customizable way. Splunk allows StationGuard to expand its functionality and report structure.

For integrating StationGuard devices into a Splunk environment, we provide a preconfigured Splunk application, which can be used and installed on a Search Head or a single host installation of Splunk. It creates the proper data inputs, a source type, and the event types to be used for the StationGuard logs. The fields in the syslog events are, then, parsed and utilized in the corresponding views. Eventually, these fields are mapped to the corresponding Splunk common information model (CIM) for intrusion detection and monitoring. To visualize data from StationGuard devices, two initial dashboards are included in the StationGuard app.

Benefits of the joint OMICRON StationGuard on Splunkbase solution:

  • Operational technology knowledge-enriched alerts and easy-to-understand dashboards help assessment and imminent incident response.
  • Continual, problem-free signal mapping through compatible Splunk SIEM integration – now and in the future.
  • Easy setup of new rules and functional enhancement to the report structure, i.e., reports can be run at any time and fetch fresh results with every run; the reports can be shared with other users and added to graphs and other interfaces.
  • Improved capability of discovering security threats to the power system in the enterprise and comprehensive protection against attacks on IT as well as OT.
