Device Visualization

Organize how to visualize the devices on your network using device attributes or Purdue levels.
IoT Security monitors and analyzes network traffic to provide a data-rich, dynamically updated inventory of the devices on your network. Through its extensive monitoring and analysis of network activity, IoT Security can also expose communication patterns among devices of interest by visualizing them in user-defined device visualization maps. By focusing on different groups of devices and different facets of the network, trends, patterns, and aberrations can emerge in the visualization of device communications and in the relationship between devices and the network segments on which they operate or—for Operational Technology (OT) devices—between the OT devices and the Purdue levels to which they’re assigned.
IoT Security provides two methods to group devices for visualization: by device attributes and by Purdue levels. It also provides the option to create a map with either one or two layers. That is, you first organize devices into groups based on a particular attribute, such as the VLAN they’re in. This results in a set of device groups organized by VLAN, allowing you to see the distribution of devices across the different VLANs in your network. So far, this is a one-layer map. However, if you want, you can also organize the devices within each VLAN by another attribute such as device profile. Then, by drilling down into different VLANs, you can enter a second layer of the map and see the distribution of devices within each VLAN by profile.
