System Health Checks
Catapult Software provides Health Checks for your OT environment.
Our standard Health Check Assessment consists of three main parts;
|1.||Review||Review of HMI SCADA system(s) including; SCADA performance, communications layer, the underlying system architecture, reliability, and risks.|
|2.||Report||Documentation on findings, including recommendations for system optimization.|
|3.||De-brief||Meeting to run-through the Report findings, clarify any points and answer questions.|
Catapult can work with you to develop an effective technology roadmap to meet your operational goals.
The Technology Roadmap & Implementation Plan will take into account;
- Recommendations from Catapult's Systems Health Check Report
- The company’s known strategic objectives and operational goals
- Known limitations & dependencies i.e., resources (people, budget), timing/evolution of the IT environment.
Often this will be delivered as a staged Implementation Plan, with short, medium and long-term actions.
Planning your OT evolution in line with IT policy, security protocols, minimisation of operational disruption and upskilling of your internal resources (as well as co-ordinating with scheduled plant shut-downs) is critical to avoid unplanned outages and unnecessary disruption.
Many OT environments suffer from aging/obsolete hardware or architecture, inconsistent version/update management, outdated operating systems, obsolete software components and obscure/ineffective communications protocols. The policies applied for Corporate IT rarely serve as well in OT environments.
Our Solutions Architect can work with you to help plan and design OT architectures that deliver the resilience and reliability required for critical systems, without sacrificing performance and security. Let us help you stay ahead of obsolescence, implement readily available efficiency gains and avoid unacceptable downtime.

Malicious software like Wannacry and CrashOverride makes OT Security a top priority for many companies around the world. Catapult, in partnership with local security experts, deliver a range of security consulting services to the NZ market. This problem is not going away and precautions need to be taken to secure OT environments to avoid the often devastating consequences captured in headlines like these:
Today, retrieving and storing operational data has become routine, but what do you do with that data once you have it?
