Azure Defender for IoT enables IT and OT teams to auto-discover their unmanaged IoT/OT assets, identify critical vulnerabilities, and detect anomalous or unauthorized behavior — without impacting IoT/OT stability or performance.
Azure Defender for IoT delivers insights within minutes of being connected to the network, leveraging patented IoT/OT-aware behavioral analytics and machine learning to eliminate the need to configure any rules, signatures, or other static IOCs. To capture the traffic, it uses an on-premises network sensor deployed as a virtual or physical appliance connected to a SPAN port or tap. The sensor implements non-invasive passive monitoring with Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) and Layer 7 Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) to extract detailed IoT/OT information in real-time.
