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

Stopping cyberthreats to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) has become top of mind for many asset owners due to the severe consequences to uptime and safety with cyber incidents. Key ICS security challenges include:

  • Poor to limited visibility into network usage
  • Poorly segmented networks with limited to no threat prevention
  • Preponderance of unpatched systems
  • Increased external interconnectivity with IIoT modernization
  • Rise in the number and sophistication of ICS-specific APTs

What We Do

We deliver a complete security platform that addresses the ICS cybersecurity challenges to help keep uptime and safety high. The core capabilities of our platform lending to this mission include:

  • Unrivaled network traffic visibility via deep packet inspection of ICS protocols and applications as well as user and content threat info.
  • Zero Trust network segmentation with role-based controls that support ICS-specific standards and regulations.
  • 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 protection – 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 to the network and endpoints.
    • Advanced API allows for integration and automation with other security and analytics product.
