Industrial networks are rapidly being modernized following the “Industry 4.0”, “Industrial IoT”, “Smart OT” initiatives that drives operational efficiencies and competitive advantages but also presents new sets of cybersecurity risks.

Learn more about the key capabilities required in a modern ICS cybersecurity platform to help prevent successful attacks to critical infrastructure and keep uptime and safety high.

Who We Are

Oil and gas is one of the most targeted industrial sectors with threat actors ranging from criminals to nation-states to hacktivists. Key security challenges include:

  • Expanded perimeter with the supply chain integration
  • Adoption of more capable but riskier technologies for mobility,
    SaaS and virtualization
  • Rise of advanced persistent threats (APTs)
  • Potential loss of production, safety/health/environmental issues, and data exfiltration

What We Do

  • We deliver a complete security platform that addresses all the challenges of securing oil and gas IT and operational networks through several core capabilities:
  • Unrivaled network traffic visibility via deep packet inspection of ICS protocols and applications, user profiles, and content/threats.
  • Zero Trust network segmentation with role-based controls that support ICS-specific standards and regulations, with extensibility to mobile and virtual domains.
  • Protection of vulnerable automation systems from known and zero-day threats via network AV/IPS, sandboxing and endpoint security.
  • How We Are Different

    • The components of our platform – next-generation firewall, threat intelligence cloud, advanced endpoint security – collaborate in an integrated and automated fashion to prevent cyberattacks.
    • Unique single-pass, parallel processing engine (SP3) delivers unrivaled Layer 7 classification performance, native correlation of data, and ease of use/management.
    • Traps advanced endpoint protection protects unpatched systems from zero-day attacks using a novel approach that stops exploit techniques.
    • Threat Intelligence Cloud automates the analysis of threats and sharing of intelligence with the network and endpoints.
    • Advanced API allows for integration and automation with other security and analytics product.
