Cylitic Security | November 15, 2021
Cylitic Security, a cyber security services provider, announced that it has chosen Swimlane, the leader in cloud-scale low-code security automation, to scale up its security operations.
Cylitic is pioneering a comprehensive managed security service to help small to medium-sized businesses successfully fight off sophisticated cyberattacks.
On average, Fortune 100 companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars annually on dedicated professional cybersecurity analysts, complicated tools, and technologies to continuously monitor their networks looking for anomalies and act in real-time to mitigate threats. Unfortunately, these capabilities are not always realistic for smaller entities. Security talent is expensive and sparse. Some cybersecurity technology vendors won't sell to smaller entities, which is also a disadvantage.
Yet, cybersecurity is not a concern only prevalent amongst large-scale enterprises--nor are the associated challenges with keeping an organization secure. Cybersecurity is an industry-wide concern for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Deploying security automation systems can bring the sophistication of enterprise-scale systems to the SMB customer. Low-code security automation provides a robust application development capability for use cases that can be solved with simple drag-and-drop data entry and business logic to extremely complex, sophisticated solutions that meet the needs of the entire organization. Cylitic's purpose is to bring advanced security capabilities and expertise to small to medium-sized customers who normally otherwise wouldn't have this access. Cylitic is leveling the playing field against threat adversaries who specifically target smaller organizations.
"We are excited to be partnering with Swimlane. Their platform allows us to scale our security service even further and helps us protect tens of thousands of mission-critical systems for smaller organizations. Technology like Swimlane is common in large, sophisticated Fortune ranked companies and Government agencies. This is yet another piece of the puzzle for Cylitic to democratize the state of technology and tactics for smaller organizations that don't have experienced cybersecurity teams," said Andrew Thornton, Cylitic Security's Chief Security Officer.
"Today, every company is a technology company,Moreover, every company is experiencing the impacts of a global talent shortage, and simultaneously, security is having an unprecedented impact on businesses and their bottom line, making cybersecurity a company-wide issue. Together, Swimlane and Cylitic are bringing the power of the low-code security automation to the SMB market, providing a customer-first approach by combining security technology integrations with industry best practices to create market-ready solutions that accelerate time-to-value."

IPKeys Power Partners, the leading cybersecurity, cyber compliance, and smart grid technology company, announced today the release of its groundbreaking SigmaFlow Beacon platform to provide utilities, generators, and grid operators a simple, unified solution for cybersecurity monitoring and compliance requirements.
The SigmaFlow Beacon platform is built specifically to help organizations align with North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) compliance mandates. It provides NERC registered entities with a single solution to advance, simplify and improve existing cybersecurity and monitoring requirements.
"We are pleased to provide utilities, generators and grid operators a system that ensures unification of cybersecurity monitoring and NERC-CIP compliance requirements," said Robert Nawy, CEO IPKeys. "It is long past time for the worlds of compliance and cyber defense to converge to provide cyber assurance for our power grid. The SigmaFlow Beacon unites needed capabilities of real-time cybersecurity monitoring with governance and regulation."
The SigmaFlow Beacon provides one, purpose-built solution for NERC baseline management, collecting the critical cyber data in real time and seamlessly incorporating the approval process within the SigmaFlow workflow and evidence platform. SigmaFlow Beacon technology is built for rapid deployment, making it faster and easier to implement than current monitoring solutions. It will save utilities valuable time, and provide seamless Critical Infrastructure Protection, improved cybersecurity, and audit ready results.
Today, NERC registered entities must use multiple vendors and systems to monitor baseline security and compliance data. These solutions are not connected to workflow, making the correlation between change management and baseline authorization next to impossible because multiple changes could be made since the facilities' last scan.
"SigmaFlow Beacon is a major step towards our vision of bringing compliance and security teams together, at the same time simplifying the act of maintaining compliance while enhancing real world cybersecurity," said Louis Riendeau, IPKeys Vice President, Operations & Product Management.
"Many of our clients and Governance & Regulation communities tend to get a sense of false cybersecurity validation by passing NERC compliance audits, SigmaFlow Beacon and the entire IPKeys Cyber Lab-as-a-Service platform introduces automated NERC compliance and advancement in real cybersecurity protection," said Trey Kirkpatrick, VP, NERC Implementation Services and Consulting.
Benefits of a Unified Approach between Cybersecurity and Compliance
Improved cybersecurity: The fewer moving parts, the fewer opportunities for errors—and the fewer cracks for hackers to get in through. With cybersecurity and compliance in sync, there is a shared knowledge between organizations.
Time Savings: When a crisis strikes, immediate action is vital. With unified security and compliance, there is less risk of misunderstanding or miscommunication between organizations, less need for work to be redone, and fewer questions about completion.
Seamless CIP management: Unified end-to-end management of security and compliance ensures consistent CIP management, while providing more efficient and accessible records, greater access to critical information, and reducing data errors, missed assignments or due dates.
Always audit-ready: All data is stored in one secure location, and is consistent, connected, complete and primed for scrutiny.
Large cybersecurity incidents like the SolarWinds breach or the Colonial Pipeline hack garner most of the attention, but hundreds of smaller attacks have impacted businesses, municipalities, and utilities across the country - and the threat is accelerating. According to Statescoop, between 2013 and 2018, 180 documented cyberattacks occurred, while 236 incidents have been reported since 2019.
