“SGA is designed for organizations that are ready to bolster their passive monitoring with a full, detailed view of assets and activity in the network in those cases where a passive-only approach is not sufficient,” said Andrea Carcano, Nozomi Networks Co-founder and Chief Product Officer. “SGA safely delivers precise asset information with the industry’s most complete ICS and threat visibility.”

SGA leverages passive-only discovery and analysis, and incorporates active capabilities so operators have the option to discover and monitor a specific and more complete set of ICS data.

SGA includes Smart Polling, a technique that uses low volume, very precise communications to actively identify and describe assets, vulnerabilities, and threats. Users gain:
• Precision Asset Discovery – Safely discover firmware, patch level and other device details.
• Advanced Vulnerability Assessment – Quickly confirm vulnerabilities for faster, more efficient response.
• Maximum Control – Choose easy-to-use default configurations, or manually apply Smart Polling to query specific devices or selected areas of the network.
