Tenable Expands Partnership with Siemens to Secure New Power Plant Controls System
Tenable Industrial Security can now be sold, installed and managed by Siemens professional services staff, alongside the company’s SPPA-T3000 distributed control system.
As attacks on critical infrastructure become more frequent and potentially more damaging, securing Operational Technology (OT) systems has become a top priority for organizations everywhere. According to the Cybersecurity in Operational Technology report from Ponemon Institute and Tenable, 90 percent of security professionals in industries that use OT said their organizations have experienced at least one business-impacting cyberattack over the last two years, and 62 percent have had two or more.
While many organizations are working diligently to secure their systems, they must be equipped with technology that allows them to identify their true level of risk. This is why we’re pleased to announce the expansion of our partnership with Siemens to include the company’s SPPA-T3000 distributed control system (DCS). Tenable Industrial Security™ can now be sold, installed and managed by Siemens professional services staff, alongside the SPPA-T3000, helping joint customers secure their increasingly dynamic critical infrastructure environments.
Our expanded partnership with Siemens will provide SPPA-T3000 customers with enhanced visibility into their attack surface and actionable insights about where they are most exposed, two critically important components of any modern security strategy.
Tenable’s Industrial Security offering provides safe, reliable asset discovery and vulnerability detection purpose-built for OT environments. Using passive network monitoring designed for critical systems that require a non-intrusive approach to vulnerability detection, the solution helps SPPA-T3000 customers identify and prioritize OT risks so they can keep safety-critical production assets secure and fully functional. With the existing secure-by-design features of the SPPA-T3000 Cue and the ability to add layers of OT asset discovery and vulnerability detection capabilities from Tenable, joint customers will be able to address the many cybersecurity challenges facing industrial environments.
Tenable Industrial Security is now available to customers operating existing Siemens SPPA-T3000 DCS, as well as on new units.
