Dubbed “Neighborhood Watch” the new service announced today provides a fully managed detection and response service for industrial companies that may not have all in house skills they need to perform comprehensive asset identification, threat detection and proactive threat hunting.
The vendor asserts that the new service “offers infrastructure owners and operators an immediate additional layer of defense and support to address these challenges more effectively by augmenting their own team with dedicated Dragos expert industrial threat hunters. These experts perform routine OT environment reporting, threat hunts, and incident triage leveraging a customer’s Dragos Platform technology.”
“As an essential water supplier to over 60 cities dependent on our critical services, we have invested in developing advanced cybersecurity capabilities over several years,” said Doug Short, Chief Information Security Officer for the Trinity River Authority of Texas. “However, we found ourselves challenged with a surge in network complexity and increasingly sophisticated adversaries who seek to disrupt not just our enterprise environment but our vital operations. We count on partners like Dragos to deliver the necessary ICS-specific security expertise and OT-informed technology in order to secure our operations that source, treat and distribute clean water to the citizens in the Trinity River Basin.”
“We are living in a time when the consequences of not maintaining continuous, stable, secure infrastructure services are potentially ruinous,” said Robert M. Lee, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Dragos, Inc. “Infrastructure providers need partners who can work with them to deploy immediate solutions to help combat staff shortages and the spike in demand for remote operations. Neighborhood Watch allows organizations who are still scaling their internal ICS security programs to tap the most experienced ICS security analysts in the world combined with our market-leading technology.”
The Neighborhood Watch team deploys, manages, and operates the Dragos Platform as an extension of the customer’s team. The Platform leverages Dragos’ extensive knowledge in the form of ICS deep packet inspection, threat analytics, and playbooks to identify attack behaviors, anomalous activity, and indicators of Compromise (IOCs).
Dragos has a global mission: to safeguard civilization from those trying to disrupt the industrial infrastructure
