The Silicon Review
The Internet of Things (IoT) and the digital transformation have brought the need for the companies - across all sectors including Industrial, Transportation, Energy and Utilities and Medical - to collect actionable data from their assets, processes, and products. This requires the connection between the OT (Operational Technology) domain, that involves industrial and factory automation, supply chain management and asset monitoring where data are generated and the IT (Information Technology) domain, that embraces business process and office automation, enterprise web and mobile applications, etc. - where data are consumed.
PAS is one such OT Integrity company that delivers software solutions that prevent, detect, and remediate cyber threats; reduce process safety risks and optimize profitability; and enable trusted data for decision-making. With operations in over 70 countries, PAS helps many of the world’s leading industrial organizations ensure OT Integrity from the sensor to the cloud – including 13 of the top 15 refining, 13 of the top 15 chemical, 4 of the top 5 pulp and paper, 3 of the top 5 mining, and 7 of the top 20 power generation companies.PAS delivers software solutions that prevent, detect, & remediate cyber threats; reduce process safety risks and optimize profitability; and enable trusted data for decision-making. PAS helps industrial organizations ensure OT Integrity including 13 of the top 15 refining and 13 of the top 15 chemical companies.
Stunning services and solutions furnished by PAS Global
OT / ICS Cyber Integrity™: To mitigate risk, address compliance requirements, and improve process safety, companies must move from today’s IT-centric solutions to an OT/ICS-centric cybersecurity approach. Traditional IT endpoint cybersecurity tools address only 20% of OT/ICS-centric cyber assets, leaving proprietary, heterogeneous industrial control systems hidden and vulnerable. Unlike IT-centric tools, PAS Cyber Integrity protects all control systems (Level 3 - Level 0) against cyber threats. Cyber Integrity leverages more than 25 years of deep OT asset management expertise to deliver the industry's most comprehensive cybersecurity solution to protect critical infrastructure.
Inventory Management: PAS Cyber Integrity™ automates what IT-based solutions cannot: the collection and contextualization of both proprietary and traditional IT system configuration data including I/O cards, firmware, software installed, and control strategies into a single repository. A comprehensive, evergreen inventory is a prerequisite to establishing a security baseline, managing change, automating closed-loop patch management, supporting internal and external compliance requirements
Configuration Management: Based on Inventory in Depth, PAS Cyber Integrity™ establishes a configuration security baseline, monitors for unauthorized change, and drives incident response protocols providing cybersecurity for both proprietary and traditional IT systems as well as auditable compliance processes
Project Integrity™: Configuration inaccuracies or discrepancies across control systems arise during the life of greenfield and brownfield projects. They are introduced by MACs, Engineering, Procurement, EPCs, and other stakeholders who face challenges keeping databases synchronized. Such issues lead to project delays, risk, and cost overruns. PAS Project IntegrityTM solves these issues by capturing, validating, and reconciling configuration data from various automation systems resolving discrepancies before the impact project goals and timelines.
Automation Integrity™: Complexity, frequent change, and the lack of automated change management processes in a control system environment leave industrial facilities vulnerable to incidents and inefficient engineering practices. PAS Automation IntegrityTM addresses these challenges by automatically aggregating, contextualizing, and visualizing configuration information. Engineers can track changes and drive approval processes across disparate industrial control systems.
PAS PlantState Integrity™: Poorly performing alarm systems, plagued by alarm floods, inaccurate alarms, and disabled alarms, diminish situation awareness and negatively impact plant production and safety. PlantState Integrity enables effective alarm management to improve operator situation awareness by providing actionable information to help mitigate abnormal situations and ensure safe, reliable, and compliant operations. PlantState Integrity, combined with their widely adopted 7-Step Alarm Management Methodology, provides a holistic solution to benchmark and optimize alarm system performance.
DOC4000™: Complexity, frequent change, and the lack of automated change management processes in a control system environment leave industrial facilities vulnerable to incidents and inefficient engineering practices. Honeywell Process Solutions is the exclusive reseller of DOC4000, which addresses these challenges by automatically aggregating, contextualizing, and visualizing configuration information. Engineers can track changes and drive approval processes across disparate industrial control systems.
The advantages of DOC4000™ include:
