What Is GearBox?

GearBox is a cybersecurity solution aimed at the Industrial IoT and Operational Technology arena.  GearBox is comprised of an on-premise appliance that Manages, Synchronizes, Orchestrates and Secures IoT defined networks, as well as a cloud-based portal which enables "In Application" data management and reporting.   GearBox brings intelligence to the edge of Industrial IoT networks, enabling unparalleled insight to IoT defined networks.

Key attributes of GearBox Appliance include:

  • Solid State Appliance

  • Ruggedized & Fanless

  • Out of Band Communication/Monitoring

  • 0C - 50C Operating Temperature

  • Dual Ethernet Connectors

  • Rack, Shelf, Wall, DIN Rail Mountable

Key attributes of GearBox Cloud include:

  • Normalize data from several sources

  • Asynchronous communication with the                                                                                           Appliance

  • Role based access and security
  •  

  • Cloud based app (no local installations                                                                                                         or server build needed)

  • Easy to use modern user interface removes                                                                                      technical complexity

What Does GearBox Do?

GearBox provides a way to gather intelligence about your I-IoT Networks and the IoT assets that are connected to those networks.  There are four primary areas where GearBox collects and displays data:

Manage

GearBox interrogates the network and creates a list or inventory of all network connected assets.  Depending on the devices, GearBox also provides additional information "fingerprint" about the assets.  When a GearBox is permanently installed, these activities can be scheduled on a recurring basis so that the network and the assets on the network can be monitored on an ongoing basis.

Synchronize

Most IoT defined networks don't have dedicated network resources.  GearBox acts as a dedicated Time Server, DHCP Server and a DNS Server for IoT defined networks.

Orchestrate

GearBox provides local caching so that firmware updates, patches and fixes can be downloaded to the network premises and staged for implementation.

Secure

GearBox intelligence that GearBox collects is saved and compared to Federal Government proctored databases such the Common Vulnerabilities (CVE) database.  GearBox uses the information gathered in the Manage phase of the network scan to determine iof there are known vulnerabilities of which the owner/operator/consultant should be aware.  GearBox presents these vulnerabilities is a simple, easy to access format, making the information highly actionable and remediation and snap.
