Integral to that solution, Industrial Security from Tenable provides safe, reliable asset discovery and vulnerability detection purpose-built for industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Using passive network monitoring based on Tenable’s Nessus Network Monitor, designed for critical systems which require a non-intrusive approach to vulnerability detection, the OT-native solution helps identify and prioritize OT risks so organizations can keep safety-critical production assets secure and fully functional.
Delivered by Siemens as a security service, Industrial Security helps customers understand the state of their assets at all times, providing them with the information they need to quickly and confidently assess, understand and ultimately reduce their cybersecurity risk. With Tenable, organizations for the first time can implement a single solution to assess Cyber Exposure across the entire modern attack surface, spanning both traditional IT and OT assets.
Siemens and Tenable have teamed up to launch Industrial Security from Tenable, which Siemens is delivering as a service to help companies secure and protect their critical OT assets.
