About the Company A global, integrated oil and gas company operating across five continents is using digital transformation to grow its business, enter new markets and be more competitive. Critical to this effort is a cloud-based digitalization initiative to enable advanced analytics and decision-making, fueling greater efficiency, flexibility and innovation. Challenge Digitalization, big data and data lakes are used to boost operational productivity, drive efficiencies across global production assets, and enable better, faster decision-making. The digitalization team at this global energy provider knew their multi-vendor industrial control systems (ICS) contained large amounts of valuable data to collect and analyze. This data comes from complex industrial automation systems across Europe, North America and Asia. Obtaining required control system inventory and configuration data and ensuring data integrity as data flowed from Level 0, 1 and 2 devices to their cloud-based data lake was a significant challenge. Initially the digitalization team evaluated working with multiple automation vendors to obtain the required data feeds. However, each vendor collected and labeled data differently. This made understanding OT asset inventory, configurations and interconnections difficult. Concurrently, the company's cybersecurity team was searching for an enterprise-wide cybersecurity solution that could harden its heterogeneous OT assets against internal and external cyber threats, meet internal and external compliance requirements and reduce cyber risks to acceptable levels.
