Aug. 1, 2023

Schneider Electric launched a Managed Security Services (MSS) offering to help customers in operational technology (OT) environments address the increased cyber-risk associated with the demand for remote access and connectivity technologies. 

Powered by Schneider Electric’s global Cybersecurity Connected Service Hub (CCSH), this new offering provides proven technologies as flexible services to monitor cyber-threats and proactively respond on behalf of customers, per Schneider. 

“Managed Security Services will help our customers implement cybersecurity industry-leading practices, proactively address risk, and align to regulatory requirements, giving them the ability to focus on their core operations,” said Jay Abdallah, vice president of cybersecurity solutions and services at Schneider Electric. “As part of our wide range of solutions to make organizations run more efficiently, this new cybersecurity offering is continuously evolving, helping to protect our customers against new cyber threats that can, and will, arise.” 

This MSS solution monitors known risks and protects networks, systems and data across IT, OT and cloud environments, each of which have specific protocols and attack vectors, notes Schneider, which adds that this new service can help customers to reduce the risk of emerging threats and sophisticated attacks that these unique technical and operational environments face. 

As a vendor-agnostic solution, MSS fits into an organization’s existing IT/OT infrastructure, scaling to their budget and maturity, per its maker. Backed by advanced machine-learning capabilities and trend analysis, MSS continuously optimizes processes and addresses real-time threats, they note, adding that the services include 24/7/365 support through Schneider Electric’s CCSH, with a global engineering and support team available around the clock.
