Scadvance XP from ICsec Provides Passive X1 Probe and Complete Solution for OT Network Monitoring

It is an innovative system from Polish company for OT Network Monitoring. The system ensures real-time identification, surveillance and security of resources. It is the foundation of a comprehensive security system that utilizes industrial automation in organizations.

The product is compliant with the EU NIS directive for monitoring and incident detection. It uses dedicated predictive and analytical models based on machine learning algorithms.

Importantly, they can adapt to any OT network configuration. Thanks to this, the system can correctly detect anomalies and threats in the network. It consists of the X1 probe, a proprietary device that collects data from network traffic, and software with an innovative analytical module. The system applies rule-based and AI-based statistical methods, forecasting (regression) models, and neural networks. It is one of a few systems capable of building dedicated predictive models for each installation. It is also characterized by passive listening, which means no interference with the infrastructure. At the same time, it can monitor interfaces of up to four physical buses and analyze 94% of industrial protocols.

The whole solution is dedicated primarily to enterprises with critical infrastructure. But also to operators of essential services and facilities with ICS/SCADA systems. For example, implementing a system structured in one of the heat and power plants resulted in many improvements. It included creating and generating a map of the entire monitored network, configuration optimization for detected and mapped devices, and the option of early response to detected cybersecurity anomalies. It also allows remote monitoring work of third-party service Staff.

About ICsec

It is a Polish producer of cybersecurity solutions, including IDS class solutions for monitoring OT networks. Thanks to many years of research, the company has designed and tested the innovative SCADVANCE XP system. It is dedicated to detecting anomalies, including cyberattacks, and fulfills the obligations arising from changing legal regulations. Its extensive R&D program, a team of experienced engineers, and obtaining several million PLN from EU funds allowed ICsec to establish investment cooperation with EEC Magenta and PGNiG.

ICsec focuses on increasing cybersecurity in industrial networks and SCADA system environments. For this purpose, the SCADVANCE XP solution monitors the Industrial Automation Network (OT). The system is based on the detection of unlikely or undesirable events. When it happens, it informs the user about them. And indicates the place of their occurrence, the target of the attack and the probable cause. It is possible mainly due to the cooperation of the solution with both the hardware and software layers in the user’s network. But also the use of Big Data analysis and machine learning algorithms.

An exemplary implementation of a system constructed in one of the heat and power plants resulted in many amenities. Creating and generating a map of the entire monitored network, optimizing the configuration of found and mapped devices and the possibility of early response to detected anomalies in the sphere of cyber threats. And also to monitor remote work of external service teams.


ICsec was the first company in Poland to obtain the right to use the cybersecurity “Made in Europe” trademark. It is also a founding member of the Polish CyberMadeInPoland Cybersecurity Cluster. ICsec won the Start-Up Challenge competition during the European Economic Congress 2020. It also won the Golden Innovation Laurel 2020 in “IT – software”.
