On Demand Webinar: Understanding Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) Firewalls

Why DPI is necessary for 100% secure industrial operational awareness

Anomaly detection techniques have proven a necessity to combat today’s ICS cyber threats, but are only effective if you can discern “normal” deviations at the application level. DPI technology provides this enhanced visibility and controls by accessing the detail of critical commands and values shared by devices, networks and machines that define how the overall operation behaves. This requires the DPI technology to fully parse the protocols used for communications without impacting the operation.

Key Takeaways

  • DPI functionality that can enhance visibility and controls to fill the voids left by existing ICS devices and technology
  • How new technology can be used to enforce an application whitelisting policy to protect embedded devices at the network layer
  • Methods for increasing network visibility for external software-based anomaly detection tools
