Solution consolidates security tools into a single-view digital platform, streamlining the display of complex information and reducing exposure to risk.

ABB has launched ABB Ability Cyber Security Workplace (CSWP), which promises to enhance the protection of critical industrial infrastructure by consolidating both ABB and third-party security solutions into one simple, all-encompassing digital platform. By making cybersecurity information more accessible and easier to manage, engineers and operators can quickly identify and remediate issues, reducing exposure to risk, notes ABB, which claims that its new solution helps address the growing cybersecurity threat and more efficiently protects operational assets by making the maintenance of security controls a key part of daily operations and summarizing information into a single view. 

“ABB’s CSWP solution overcomes these challenges by simplifying security-control status information and enabling remote access, making it possible for ABB’s technical domain experts to connect directly to their environment when additional support is needed,” said Matthew Virostek, product owner for CSWP at ABB. “Operational technology and information technology networks are also isolated so that elements of risk are identified faster, leading to more informed, data-led decisions that help optimize performance and resource use, and hence contribute to driving sustainability goals.”
