Indegy has launched a risk-assessment service that aims to enable organizations to quickly and affordably assess security-risk exposures in their operational technology (OT) environments, right down to individual controller configurations.
Following the recent United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) technical alert, which revealed that attacks were already underway against critical-infrastructure sectors, many industrial organizations are re-evaluating their security risk-management practices, according to Indegy, which touts that their Risk Assessment Service enables executives, managers, security analysts and automation engineers to immediately understand the specific vulnerabilities and security gaps in their environments.
The service provides a comprehensive view that identifies risks, maps them to their origin and scores the severity to provide a blueprint for remediation. The Indegy Risk Assessment Service takes into account cyber-threats, malicious insider-security alerts, known vulnerabilities and specific control-device configurations that may create exposure to malicious threats.
“Most industrial organizations are now realizing that their OT environment is at risk more than ever before and they need to implement new security controls. Their biggest challenge is knowing where to start,” says Mille Gandelsman, CTO of Indegy. “Our Risk Assessment Service provides facilities operators with clear and documented visibility into all the risks, vulnerabilities and exposures in their OT networks. It delivers an actionable blueprint for closing security gaps that can (and have) taken down mission-critical operations.”
