“PAS is introducing a breakthrough solution for industrial organizations to improve OT cybersecurity no matter their current state of maturity across sites,” said Eddie Habibi, CEO and Founder of PAS, in a press release. “Whether a site is working to build their security foundation with an accurate and detailed OT asset inventory, ready for vulnerability assessment and patch management, or looking to establish a mature enterprise program, PAS Cyber Integrity has them covered. This modular capability is increasingly needed as digitalization and the accelerating shift to remote work caused by the COVID-19 pandemic expand the industrial cyber-attack surface.”

“When evaluating cybersecurity technologies, we looked for a solution that could expand as our needs developed,” Jamal Al-Balushi, Control & Automation Team Lead at Petroleum Development Oman, said in the release. “Initially, our focus was to automate OT asset inventory, assess vulnerabilities, and prioritize our remediation efforts. This was part of a longer-term strategy to develop a mature enterprise OT cybersecurity program with back up & recovery and compliance reporting across sites. PAS Cyber Integrity meets our needs for today and will expand with us as we enhance our cybersecurity program in the future.”

As part of the recent announcement, PAS also unveiled a new OT inventory assessment service.
