On February 25, operational technology company SCADAfence announced the launch of their governance portal. The product saw a soft launch a few months ago and has since been recognized with the Cutting Edge Compliance award by Infosec Awards. Since the announcement of those awards at RSA Conference 2020 on February 24, Scadafence is officially launching their new product.
“SCADAfence has combined its experience in safeguarding industrial control systems across many sectors with a constantly updated governance product,” Scadafence CEO Elad Ben-Meir, said in a release. “We designed the Governance Portal to automate the tedious process of adhering to compliance requirements, covering both central and distributed/remote sites. Our customers have been extremely excited about the launch of this product as it saves them precious time and resources, while assisting them in reducing their attack surface and doing so based on industry best practices.”
The portal is a single one-stop solution that enables real-time monitoring and compliance for IT and OT users. It also ensures compliance with relevant regulations such as IEC62443, NERC CIP, NIS NCSC, the NIST framework and other frameworks.
The SCADAfence Governance Portal continuously monitors compliance enforcement over time across all sites – identifying each gap and bottleneck. The SCADAfence Governance Portal automatically discovers and creates an accurate asset list of all ICS devices. This supports the IT and OT departments that typically manage cybersecurity standards compliances across the organization, as they are now legally required to monitor standards compliance in remote OT locations.
