SCADAfence, a pioneer in securing industrial networks in smart manufacturing industries, announced today it has joined Gigamon’s (GIMO) ecosystem partner program to provide a joint cybersecurity solution.
With the adoption of Industrial IoT, manufacturing facilities are more productive, easier to manage and more cost-effective to operate. However, the major technology changes taking place have exposed mission critical systems to cyber-attacks. Additionally, traditional IT monitoring and cybersecurity solutions were not designed for Operational Technology (OT) environments and therefore, do not fit the unique requirements they demand. This can leave smart manufacturing networks in industries such as pharmaceutical, chemical, food & beverage and automotive almost completely unprotected and unmonitored.
SCADAfence’s Industrial Continuous Network Monitor solution is fully interoperable with Gigamon’s GigaSECURE and provides IT and OT security personnel with a holistic view of their industrial network, as well as advanced detection capabilities. The joint solution restores control of the industrial environment and mitigates risks, such as operational downtime, product manipulation and theft of intellectual property.
