Secureworks® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced two new offerings to unify the way industrial organizations prevent, detect, and respond to threats across the OT and IT landscapes.
Taegis XDR for OT – Secureworks award-winning XDR platform that combines intelligence from OT with security telemetry across the IT landscape into a single unified threat prevention, detection and response platform. The platform is for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) who want to deliver Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions, and for organizations that manage their own SOCs.
Taegis ManagedXDR for OT – Secureworks MDR offering that empowers industrial organizations, such as manufacturers, to secure both OT and IT environments with a team of security experts detecting, investigating, and responding to threats 24x7.
The convergence of OT and IT in the industrial sector brings technological and economic benefits, but also increases risk. The more OT systems are digitally connected, the larger the overall attack surface becomes, making OT an increasingly attractive target for threat actors. This, combined with a global cybersecurity talent shortage numbering in the millions, has led to unprecedented levels of cyberattacks impacting the industrial sector. According to Gartner®1, manufacturing companies are now among the most targeted for cyberattacks, comprising 23% of all attacks. Secureworks Counter Threat Unit™ data shows that approximately 22% of Secureworks' emergency incident response engagements between April 2022 and April 2023 were in the manufacturing industry alone. Manufacturing made up 20% of all ransomware-based incident response engagements that Secureworks remediated in the same period. Gartner also predicts that by 2025, 70% of asset-intensive organizations will have converged their security functions across both enterprise and operational environments.2 Yet, in industrial environments overall, OT is often managed differently from IT with no centralized visibility across both.
"As OT and IT systems infrastructure becomes more interdependent and connected, the risks from threats traversing these environments are rapidly escalating," said Dave Gruber, Principal Analyst with Enterprise Security Group. "Security operations teams need visibility into the combined OT/IT environment to detect, investigate, and respond to these complex threats. Secureworks' move to offer a specialized OT security solution by leveraging its own, proven Taegis XDR platform highlights the importance of this increasing threat."
"Industrial organizations will continue to be challenged by an expanding attack surface and evolving threat landscape. Their risks include unplanned shutdowns, financial losses, and harm to human populations that rely on critical services," said Kyle Falkenhagen, Chief Product Officer, Secureworks. "And the potential costs are staggering. For example, manufacturers lose an average of $148 per second3 of unplanned downtime – almost $9,000 per minute. As a managed solution that unifies threat prevention, detection and response of OT and IT into a single platform, Secureworks helps organizations with OT environments reduce cyber risks and enhance their security postures as they complete their digital transformations," Falkenhagen concluded.
Taegis ManagedXDR for OT
Industrial organizations can reduce risk by bringing Taegis XDR's threat monitoring, detection, investigation and response capabilities across both OT and IT environments, eliminating the visibility challenges often associated with OT and IT systems. Taegis XDR is already used by five of the top 20 manufacturers in the world. Now, with the first integrated MDR solution for OT and IT, organizations can unify their security monitoring and visibility strategies under a single platform, while gaining the benefits of a fully managed security solution using Taegis ManagedXDR.
The solution includes:
24x7 threat monitoring with unlimited access to security experts in 90 seconds or less, collaborative design of OT and IT response processes, customizable rules and playbooks, quarterly expert security reviews, monthly threat hunting, onboarding support, and access to proactive services (including incident response planning and adversarial testing).
Taegis XDR platform, a SaaS security platform that processes more than 640 billion events daily across more than 2,000 customers to enable superior detection and response. The Taegis platform integrates feeds from third-party tools that are normalized and analyzed, along with Secureworks own proprietary data and global threat intelligence curated by the Counter Threat Unit.
Secureworks Taegis endpoint agent and the Secureworks Taegis iSensor IDS/IPS device for monitoring IT and OT traffic.
Integrations with leading OT solutions.
Hundreds of out-of-the-box integrations across different technology solutions including Google, Mimecast, AWS, Microsoft, and Netskope among others.
Access to a full suite of proactive security testing services to raise cyber resiliency across OT and IT environments.
Secureworks brings the power of Taegis XDR to OT environments by delivering:
Superior threat detection and unmatched response across OT and IT environments through the Taegis XDR platform.

Safe Security (SAFE), the leader in AI-based cyber risk management SaaS platform, announced today the industry's first Cyber Risk Cloud of Clouds for predicting and preventing cyber breaches. In contrast to the rest of the industry that takes a reactive approach, SAFE's Cyber Risk Cloud of Clouds enables organizations to make informed and predictive dynamic security decisions to reduce risk.
Real-Time, Data-Driven, Aggregated Risk in a Single Place
SAFE's Cyber Risk Cloud of Clouds provides organizations with a granular and aggregated view of enterprise security risk by bringing together multiple disparate cyber signals, including Crowdstrike, Wiz, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Provider, Qualys, Tanium, Rapid7, ServiceNow, and more in a single view. This provides organizations with visibility across their entire attack surface ecosystem, including technology, people, and third parties.
AI Breach Predictions and Prioritized Actions to Prevent Breaches
Using SAFE's predictive AI data models, co-developed with MIT, SAFE generates breach likelihood for different risk scenarios like ransomware. For example, accurately answer questions like:
How likely are you to be hit by a ransomware attack in the next 12 months?
What is your likelihood of being hit by the latest malware like "Snake" malware?
What is your dollar impact for that attack?
What prioritized actions can you proactively take to reduce the ransomware breach likelihood and reduce dollar risk?
"The CISO is facing an unprecedented level of pressure and the role has evolved into a major business decision maker. With SAFE, CISOs can gain a new level of visibility with higher confidence, through real-time access into their cybersecurity posture, to make the most impactful strategy to decrease cyber risk," said Saket Modi, CEO and Co-Founder of SAFE. "The new release of SafeGPT, a generative AI interface, powered by LLM models is a game-changer. It helps CISOs get the right answers a hundred times faster."
SafeGPT Drives Easy Access and Risk Reducing Decisions
SAFE's generative AI chat interface powered by LLM models, SafeGPT, offers an intuitive platform for managing cyber risk with ease, providing stakeholders with a clear and comprehensible overview of the organization's cybersecurity posture. With its user-friendly dashboard and natural language processing capabilities, SafeGPT enables users to ask targeted questions of their cyber risk data, determine the most effective strategies for mitigating risk, and respond confidently to inquiries from regulators and other key stakeholders.
"The market transitions going on now are going to affect every industry and vertical worldwide," said John Chambers, former Executive Chairman and CEO of Cisco and current founder and CEO of JC2 Ventures." AI is going to have a tremendous impact on cybersecurity, which is why I am excited about the launch of SafeGPT. It simplifies complex problem-solving for board members and C-level executives."
About Safe Security
Safe Security is the leader in cyber risk management SaaS platforms. It has redefined cyber risk measurement and management with its real time, data driven approach that empowers enterprises, boards, regulators and cyber insurance carriers to understand cyber risk in an aggregated and granular manner.
Using SAFE's predictive AI driven data models, co-developed with MIT, customers are now empowered to translate the bits and bytes of cyber risk into dollars and cents so that they can prioritize their cyber investments to most effectively mitigate their risk and understand the return on security investments.
