I am extremely pleased today to announce Claroty’s integration into Tripwire’s ICS security capabilities. The integration of our respective technologies, based on a shared vision of how the security landscape is evolving, addresses a fast-growing need within industrial enterprises for top-floor to shop-floor visibility across both business and operational environments.
After years of neglect, increased risk awareness among Boards and C-level execs has directed more attention, and action, to addressing poorly protected and vulnerable industrial control system (ICS) networks. And it’s not just the traditional industrial and manufacturing sectors that are at risk; virtually every enterprise operates some kind of ICS network (HVAC or elevators in any modern office building, for example).
Security teams, who must now manage an expanded risk landscape across both the IT and OT environments, are increasingly looking for solutions that provide comprehensive visibility and monitoring of all networks and endpoints across the enterprise.
Belden and its Tripwire brand have delivered best-of-breed endpoint cybersecurity solutions for years. Now, combined with Claroty’s world-class network monitoring and anomaly detection the new Tripwire Industrial Visibility solution provides extreme visibility, continuous threat and vulnerability monitoring and deep insights across IP and non-IP network segments into the deepest reaches of the OT environment including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), remote terminal units (RTUs) and distributed control systems (DCS).
This extended visibility will help security teams more effectively identify risk across the enterprise, prioritize remediation and respond more quickly and efficiently during a security incident. This has become increasingly important as we see recent threats such as WannaCry and NotPetya spilling over from the IT to the OT environment, causing exponentially greater damage and disruption to industrial enterprises.
In addition to the added visibility, Claroty’s new virtual zones capability helps customers dramatically improve their security posture and simplify the difficult task of (Read more...)
