Today governments are benefiting in many ways from the Internet of Things (IoT). To fully take advantage of IP-enabled devices, such as medical devices in federal healthcare agencies, sensor-monitored building facilities for power conservation, and smart meters used by utilities, these devices must be secured. Ordr provides a purpose-built platform that secures the entire device lifecycle so governments can become more productive and efficient with IoT.

IoT, IoMT and OT devices within government agencies can be used as attack vectors. Ordr’s platform discovers all devices with risks using a built-in intrusion detection engine and the Ordr Flow Genome device profiling. They identify vulnerabilities, active exploits and anomalous communication patterns. The Ordr Policy Generator can be used to dynamically create segmentation policies that lock down high-risk devices.

An amendment written for the National Defense Authorization Act in 2019 prohibits the U.S. government from purchasing and installing Chinese-made surveillance cameras. Other governments around the world followed suit. Ordr can identify devices no longer allowed in government networks by manufacturer, model, and serial numbers. Once these devices are discovered, it triggers facilities or ITSM workflows to alert device owners to respond appropriately.

Governments are embracing smart buildings with smart HVAC, surveillance, access control, and energy systems. Ordr secures devices like BACnet controllers from compromise, ensuring that they do not become initial attack targets. Ordr Flow Genome and Layer 2 and Layer 3 constellation mapping provide easy visualization of internal and external communications. By baselining communications patterns, they create segmentation policies to lock down critical devices.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework’s goal is to protect federal information that resides in an organization’s environment. Any computer or electronic device that processes federal data that is considered sensitive needs to be protected. Agencies can leverage the Ordr Systems Control Engine to meet CMMC standards for traditional managed devices, unmanaged devices, network, IoT and OT devices.  Learn more about how Swish and Ordr can help your agency take full advantage of IP-enabled devices, while securing the entire device life cycle.
