Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security, today announced a technology integration partnership with ForeScout Technologies where Indegy will extend ForeScout’s network-connected device visibility into operational technology networks. The joint solution makes Indegy’s leading visibility, control and security for industrial control system assets available in the ForeScout platform for comprehensive intelligence across an organization.
OT Security Solutions
OT environments lack visibility and security controls. Meanwhile, traditional IT security solutions do not cover OT assets for vulnerability and configuration since they are blind to the unique patterns and protocols of ICS traffic. In addition, network-only OT security solutions lack visibility into local maintenance modifications, context of endpoint state during attacks, and current patch levels.
CEO of Indegy, Barak Perelman said that according to the recent joint DHS/FBI CERT Technical Alert, adversaries have compromised facilities across the US to conduct reconnaissance and develop ‘red button’ capability for future attacks. It is imperative that targeted sectors including energy, nuclear, water, and manufacturing significantly increase ICS security. Our partnership with ForeScout closes the OT security gap by providing tightly integrated, centrally managed visibility and control over IT and OT assets in critical infrastructures.
