Asset Inventory & Classification Services

Effectively manage your critical infrastructure assets, optimize performance, and enhance security, while minimizing risks and ensuring compliance with industry regulations.

What are Asset Inventory & Classification Services?

Our Asset Inventory and Classification services for Operational Technology (OT) provide a range of benefits to organizations that rely on industrial control systems, manufacturing equipment, and other critical infrastructure. By identifying, classifying, and managing OT assets, businesses can optimize performance, minimize downtime, and enhance security.

Asset Inventory & Classification Services

Key Benefits

Enhanced visibility

Gaining a comprehensive understanding of all OT assets, including hardware, software, and network devices, enables organizations to make informed decisions about resource allocation, maintenance, and security.

Improved security

By identifying and classifying OT assets based on their criticality and vulnerability, organizations can prioritize security efforts and implement appropriate safeguards to protect their most valuable and sensitive assets.

Reduced downtime

Proper asset management helps organizations proactively identify potential issues and address them before they cause costly downtime or production delays.

Optimized resource allocation

Understanding the location, function, and criticality of OT assets enables organizations to make data-driven decisions about resource allocation, ensuring that the most important assets receive the necessary attention and support.

Streamlined maintenance

Asset Inventory and Classification services facilitate efficient maintenance by providing information about the lifecycle stages of OT assets, including their age, condition, and maintenance history.

Compliance management

Many industries have specific regulations regarding the management of OT assets, such as the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) standards for power utilities. Asset Inventory and Classification services help organizations maintain compliance by providing visibility into asset ownership, usage, and location.

Enhanced collaboration

By centralizing asset information, Asset Inventory and Classification services promote collaboration among different departments and stakeholders, ensuring that everyone is working with the same data and insights.

Risk mitigation

Identifying and classifying OT assets allows organizations to assess the risks associated with each asset, enabling them to develop targeted risk mitigation strategies that protect both the organization and its critical infrastructure.

Lifecycle management

Tracking and managing assets throughout their lifecycle, from procurement to disposal, helps organizations maximize the value of their investments in OT equipment and systems.

Reporting and analytics

Comprehensive reporting and analytics capabilities provide insights into OT asset usage, trends, and potential vulnerabilities, enabling organizations to make data-driven decisions about asset management, maintenance, and security.

What you will get out of our service:


Comprehensive Asset Inventory

A detailed and up-to-date inventory of all OT assets, including hardware, software, network devices, and data. This inventory should be easily accessible and include information such as asset type, vendors, make, model and firmware version, location, owner, and function.


Asset Classification Framework

A robust classification framework that categorizes OT assets based on factors such as criticality, function, and sensitivity. This framework should be adaptable to the organization’s specific needs and industry requirements.


Asset Tagging System

A standardized asset tagging system that assigns relevant metadata to each OT asset, allowing for easy tracking, management, and reporting. Tags should include information such as asset status, location, and owner.


Compliance Management Plan

A comprehensive plan outlining the necessary steps to ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards for OT asset management. This plan should include processes for regular audits and assessments.


Lifecycle Management Plan

A documented plan for managing OT assets throughout their lifecycle, from procurement to disposal. This plan should include procedures for acquisition, deployment, maintenance, and decommissioning, as well as guidelines for asset disposal and recycling.


Integration Plan

A plan detailing how the Asset Inventory and Classification services will integrate with other IT and OT asset management tools, such as Configuration Management Databases (CMDB), vulnerability management, vulnerability scanners, and patch management systems, to ensure a cohesive and efficient asset management process.

Enhance visibility within your operational technology environments while minimizing risks, reducing downtime, and ensuring compliance with industry regulations.
