Identity-based Access Management

Defend cyber-physical systems. Protect every asset. Stop attackers from compromising critical infrastructure.

The Challenge

Too often, access control in operational technology systems is an all-or-nothing proposition. Once a user, or an attacker, is inside the network, they can access any device without further authentication. Furthermore, access from device to device is not controlled, making lateral movement easy for an attacker who compromises a single device.

A new approach to access control is required to minimize the attack surface and  secure today’s interconnected OT, IT, and Cloud environments.

Identity-First Security Protects Critical Assets

Identity-based access management protects your assets against some of the most common and effective methods of attack, including stolen credentials and the use of exploits against vulnerable systems. Don’t just detect attacks in progress, stop them in their tracks.

Protect Your Assets From Threats

Overprivileged accounts and permissive cyber architectures give cyberattackers access to your critical assets. Manage access to protect your environment.

Orchestrate Identity-based Access

Manage identities and privilege levels across multiple identity providers and across multiple zones, from OT to IT to DMZ to Cloud.

Simplify User Experience and Improve Effectiveness

Frustrating workflows cost time, or cause users to take insecure shortcuts. Simplify your user experience and secure your assets.

Unlike other access management solutions, Xage identity-based access management assures that you control every interaction across OT, IT, and Cloud. You no longer have to tolerate risky implicit trust zones, shared accounts, and separate, costly credential and privilege access management tools. Now you can defend modern and legacy assets with or without their own credentials or built in security, all using a single, browser-based console.

Xage’s Identity-based Access Management Solution

The Xage Fabric delivers complete control over who has access to your most critical assets, what they can do, when, and for how long. The Fabric is highly available and resilient, so policy enforcement continues locally even if one site loses network connectivity to the others. Xage offers greater capabilities than traditional IAM/ICAM and PAM solutions, while remaining simpler to deploy, manage, and use.

Resilient Identity-based Access and Privilege Enforcement

Xage Fabric makes it easy to create and enforce granular, identity-driven access policies and manage access privileges to operational assets for local or remote users and applications.

Orchestrate Across OT, IT, and Cloud

Xage Fabric orchestrates identity-based access management across multiple zones and layers. This simplifies user access flows, increases operational efficiency, and eliminates the risks from stolen credentials and insecure devices.

Simplified Secure Access Experience for All Personnel

Deliver friction-free access for all your users, in seconds instead of days or weeks, without endpoint agents or additional software, and without poking holes in security or sharing privileged credentials.

Key Capabilities of Xage Identity-based Access Management

Multifactor Authentication at Every Layer and Device

Strengthen your cybersecurity with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and Single Sign-On (SSO). Optionally, deliver multi-layer MFA with independent MFA at every layer of your environment, whether for cloud, IT, DMZ, OT site, or individual asset.

Credential Management

Eliminate stale credentials by automatically rotating passwords for any asset, including PLCs and RTUs.

Control User Access Per Machine and Per Application

Avoid separate tools. Create and enforce unified access policies across all operational assets and personnel. Control which users can access which machines via which applications for granular asset protection.

Machine-to-Machine Access Control

Prevent attacker lateral movement by controlling when and how machines can talk to each other, even within a single OT site.

Log and Audit Every Interaction

Track every action taken by any user or machine to assure complete auditability and fuel security analytics via SIEM or other platforms.

Overlay Malware Scanning

Enforce malware scanning via integrations with 3rd party antivirus engines to every file transferred. Control file transfer between users, workstations, and OT assets.
