Indegy Launches Cyber Security Platform
Indegy introduces a cyber security platform that provides comprehensive visibility into the critical control-layer of operational technology (OT) networks to identify threats that place the safety, reliability and security of industrial control systems (ICS) at risk. By detecting logic changes to controllers that manage power grids, gas pipelines and manufacturing facilities, Indegy provides protection against cyber attacks, insider threats and unauthorized modifications, according to the company.
Indegy reportedly provides real-time visibility into all ICS control-layer activities. The Indegy platform is natively designed for ICS networks and detects changes to controllers regardless of whether they are performed over the network, locally on the device, by malware or a human being. It automatically discovers all controllers on ICS networks and routinely validates their logic, firmware version and configuration to identify any unauthorized or unintended changes. Indegy monitors and logs all network activity including instructions sent to controllers such as modifying the temperature, pressure and rotation speed of operational equipment.
The Indegy platform generates policy-based real-time security alerts. Indegy also assists engineering personnel with built-in applications for asset management, configuration control, backup and recovery. Comprehensive reports allow facilities operators to demonstrate compliance with various regulations.
Delivered as a turnkey network appliance, the Indegy platform is agentless, non-intrusive and deploys without disrupting operations, according to the company. It supports integration with third party software including SIEM, configuration management databases (CMDB) and other applications through a RESTFul API.
