CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, today unveiled its new “ICS Asset Visibility & Threat Monitoring” app for the Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW) Application Framework.
As digitalization and IIoT drive increased connectivity between IT and Operational Technology (OT) networks, the risk of targeted attacks and destructive malware — such as TRITON and NotPetya — has dramatically increased. These cyber-physical incidents can result in costly production downtime, catastrophic safety failures, environmental damage, and theft of corporate IP.
The new app utilizes the prevention infrastructure and information from the sensors that customers already have in place with the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform — which, combined with CyberX’s proprietary, ICS-aware asset profiling, behavioral analytics, and threat intelligence — provides granular visibility into all OT assets and communication patterns between them, enabling network defenders to rapidly detect and disrupt attacks on critical infrastructure sectors including energy & utilities, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and manufacturing.
