Tenable Announces Increase of Several Thousand New Operational Technology Devices Covered by Industrial Security Offering
October 17, 2018
Solution expands device coverage of the top ten leading industrial manufacturers, including Honeywell, Rockwell and Mitsubishi, to secure critical infrastructure
Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today announced that Industrial Security -- an asset discovery and vulnerability management solution for operational technology (OT) systems developed in conjunction with Siemens -- now includes significantly wider and deeper coverage of several thousand new OT devices from the top ten leading industrial manufacturers. This expanded breadth and depth of coverage is a significant step forward to help organizations deploy a single Cyber Exposure solution which spans both IT and OT assets.
Digital transformation means that once-isolated OT systems are increasingly connected, radically expanding the attack surface for organizations to understand and defend. Furthermore, most OT systems run in heterogeneous environments, with devices from numerous industrial vendors, often relying on unique, proprietary protocols. This complex mix of device types and protocols further complicates asset monitoring and detection. As a result, many organizations lack basic visibility into the assets in their OT environment and are unable to reliably measure or manage cyber exposure. This puts tremendous pressure on security teams to identify assets and their associated vulnerabilities before they are compromised. In response, Tenable has expanded the breadth and depth of its OT asset discovery and vulnerability management capabilities across an even broader range of devices, spanning Siemens, Schneider, Rockwell/Allen-Bradley, Honeywell, Mitsubishi and others.
“Our Internet-connected world means that IT, OT and even enterprise IoT are increasingly converging into a massive and amorphous attack surface with multiple access points for bad actors. This is a growing problem as more and more systems -- many of them decades old -- are connecting to enterprise networks,” said Dave Cole, chief product officer, Tenable. “Organizations need complete and live visibility into all of their assets, be they modern, traditional, on-prem or in the cloud as the first step toward reducing overall cyber risk.”
Industrial Security from Tenable provides safe, reliable asset discovery and vulnerability management purpose-built for OT environments. Using passive network monitoring and designed for critical systems which require a non-intrusive approach to vulnerability management, the OT-native solution helps identify and prioritize OT risks so organizations can keep safety-critical production assets secure and fully functional.
Industrial Security version 1.2.0 is now generally available.
