Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today announced the industry’s first solution designed to reduce cybersecurity risk across today’s converged IT/OT environments. Enhancements to the Tenable.io® platform and Industrial Security, an asset discovery and vulnerability detection solution for Operational Technology (OT) systems, delivered in partnership with Siemens, enable organizations to manage Cyber Exposure holistically across IT and OT and effectively prioritize remediation based on the criticality of the asset and the vulnerability.
OT and critical infrastructure systems were initially designed to work in isolation from the network and walled off from outside cybersecurity threats. But digital transformation has turned these once-isolated systems into connected devices, making them high value targets for attackers.
In fact, attacks on OT assets often start by compromising IT systems and then moving laterally, as noted in the FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued an unprecedented warning about Russian state-sponsored attacks on U.S. critical infrastructure. Converged environments contain a mix of IT and OT devices and systems that demand a holistic approach to cybersecurity so that organizations can accurately manage, measure and reduce cybersecurity risk.
