Indegy Launches Industrial Security Risk Assessment Service

This post was originally published on this site

Industrial cybersecurity firm Indegy on Thursday announced the launch of a risk assessment service designed to help organizations evaluate exposures in their operational technology (OT) environments.

Indegy says its new service provides visibility and control into the security posture of industrial control systems (ICS) and the networks housing them.

The Indegy Risk Assessment Service is designed to identify risks and map them to their origin, assigning severity scores for each identified issue.

According to Indegy, the service combines network traffic monitoring and analysis with device integrity assessment capabilities to identify account-related issues, insider threats, known vulnerabilities, open network ports, and control device configuration problems.

Once the assessment has been completed, organizations are provided a detailed report that includes a risk score for each asset and the network in general.

The Risk Assessment Service is available immediately and it can provide useful information for executives, managers, IT personnel, security analysts, and automation engineers, Indegy said.

“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. More importantly it delivers an actionable blueprint for closing security gaps that can and have taken down mission critical operations,” Gandelsman added.
