Swimlane Launches First Comprehensive Security Automation Ecosystem for OT Environments

Swimlane | November 15, 2022

Swimlane, the low-code security automation company, today announced the formation of the first operational technology (OT) security automation solution ecosystem tailored to meet the combined OT and IT security requirements within critical infrastructure environments. The Biden Administration designated November as Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, drawing attention to the need for “fortifying our information technology and cybersecurity across sectors.” As cyber threats grow in frequency and severity, security operations teams within industrial organizations are regularly targeted due to the importance of their systems and infrastructure. Given the limited resources at their disposal, security teams within these organizations are struggling to keep up with rapidly evolving threats. The cybersecurity skills gap poses a particularly difficult challenge for organizations with OT environments due to the unique skill set required to navigate the convergence of OT and IT technologies. This is where modern Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) plays an instrumental role. “Our public utilities and critical infrastructure face unique cybersecurity challenges to detect and respond to the convergence of threats targeting their combined OT and IT environments, and cyber-physical systems. “Swimlane is bringing together the best of OT security with our extensible security automation platform to create a robust system of record and control for security operations teams to more quickly process large amounts of security telemetry without needing more resources to defend against breaches.” Cody Cornell Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Swimlane Swimlane’s security automation ecosystem for OT environments currently includes the following: Nozomi Networks for OT and IoT Security: Swimlane and Nozomi Networks, the leader in OT and IoT security, also announced today a technology integration that combines low-code security automation with OT and Internet of Things (IoT) security. The combined solution makes it possible for industrial and critical infrastructure security operations to maintain continuous asset compliance and mitigate the risks of attacks from combined OT and IT entry points. Dataminr Tackles Physical Risk: Swimlane’s integration with Dataminr leverages automated processes to mitigate risks and warn at-risk employees as soon as possible to ensure their safety. The cyber-physical threat response solution saves organizations crucial minutes when connecting with staff members who might be affected by a natural disaster, accident, or social unrest, or other types of physical risk. 1898 & Co. for Managed Threat Detection: 1898 & Co., a preeminent industrial control system (ICS) cybersecurity solutions provider, has selected Swimlane as the core automation platform for their managed threat detection services. These services include the detection of both OT and IT-born threats, machine-speed threat validation and scoring, and rapid remediation of threats using OT response methods. “Security teams chartered with protecting OT environments are struggling to keep pace with emerging threats given their limited resources,” said Joshua Magady, Practice Technical Lead at 1898 & Co. “As cyberattacks on critical infrastructure continue to rise and the cybersecurity skills shortage prevails, we are excited to be working with Swimlane to provide automation solutions that give these important organizations the tools to defend against rising cyber threats effectively.” Working with each technology partner, Swimlane will develop a portfolio of pre-integrated solutions that customers can quickly deploy either through managed services or add to their existing environment.

DTEX InTERCEPT™ is a first-of-its-kind Workforce Cyber Security solution that brings together the capabilities of Insider Threat Management, User and Entity Behavior Analytics, Digital Forensics, and Zero Trust DLP in an all-in-one lightweight, cloud-native platform. Only DTEX InTERCEPT delivers the behavioral context and activity intelligence that answers the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How related to any potential insider threat situation, compromised account event or data loss scenario without invading personal privacy. In the face of changing global economic conditions, the increasing risk of corporate espionage, and a pending corporate reduction in force action, the application performance and cloud security vendor prioritized an immediate review of existing insider risk and data loss prevention technology. The vendor’s legal team was heavily involved in the RFP and vendor evaluation processes to ensure employee privacy would be protected as part of the adoption of any insider risk and data loss prevention solution in compliance with the European Union’s GDPR and California’s Privacy Rights Act (CPRA). After exhaustive review of DTEX InTERCEPT’s patented metadata collection model, the vendor’s legal, IT and, cyber security teams selected DTEX to replace its existing first-generation insider risk and data loss prevention solutions globally. DTEX InTERCEPT’s seamless integration with the application performance and cloud security vendor’s NGAV system, as well as its innovative Zero Trust approach to data loss prevention were also deciding factors in the enterprises choice to standardize on DTEX InTERCEPT across all enterprise workstations and servers. Upon selection, a senior cyber security executive said, “DTEX is a proven solution that won’t break our systems.” “It is incredibly gratifying to have our insider risk and data loss prevention technology chosen by a fellow cyber security vendor. In this case, it was again the uniqueness of our data set and ability to keep employee data private, while delivering dynamic, contextual human behavior visibility that was the deciding factor in the customer’s decision. “Likewise, a peer’s decision to adopt our technology makes a strong statement that traditional solutions focused on machine intelligence are insufficient to protect data in today’s distributed workforce reality. The difference is most definitely human.” Bahman Mahbod, CEO at DTEX Systems About DTEX Systems DTEX Systems helps hundreds of organizations worldwide better understand their workforce, protect their data, and make human-centric operational investments. Its Workforce Cyber Intelligence & Security platform brings together next-generation Zero Trust DLP, UEBA, digital forensics, user activity monitoring and insider threat management in one scalable, cloud-native platform.

Keeper Security Announces StateRAMP Authorization

Keeper Security | December 08, 2022

Keeper Security, the leading provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, secrets and connections, today announced that the company has obtained StateRAMP Authorization at the Moderate Impact Level for its Keeper Security Government Cloud (KSGC). The nationwide StateRAMP cybersecurity verification program promotes the adoption of secure cloud services across state and local governments by providing a standardized approach to security and risk assessment for cloud technologies. StateRAMP Authorization differentiates KSGC from its competitors as the best in class zero-trust and zero-knowledge security solution for state and local governments, as well as higher-educational institutions, to protect their passwords, data, and secrets. StateRAMP Authorization enables these governments and organizations to accelerate the adoption of cloud computing by creating transparent standards and processes for security authorizations. It allows them to leverage Keeper's password management and cybersecurity platform on an institution-wide scale with confidence that the solution meets strict standardized security requirements. KSGC is hosted in AWS GovCloud (US), designed to host sensitive data, regulated workloads, and address the most stringent security and compliance requirements. Keeper's StateRAMP Authorization comes on the heels of KSGC achieving FedRAMP Authorization at the Moderate Impact Level in August 2022. While StateRAMP Authorization typically takes two years to complete, KSGC's existing FedRAMP Authorization accelerated the certification. To receive FedRAMP Authorization, organizations must implement controls from 17 different control families that originate from National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53. Now, KSGC is the first and only FedRAMP and StateRAMP Authorized password management platform in the industry. "We are proud to bring Keeper's password management and cybersecurity platform to StateRAMP Authorized status, and thrilled to be the first FedRAMP and StateRAMP Authorized password management platform. "KSGC's StateRAMP Authorization underscores our dedication to the highest standards of internal security controls and encryption. Keeper is eager to help state and local governments and higher-educational institutions protect their digital assets from ransomware, data breaches and other password-related cyberattacks." Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-Founder of Keeper Security Keeper provides government agencies with a human-centric cybersecurity solution that promotes adoption of password best practices, like the use of MFA, by employees and contractors. Keeper also promotes secure collaboration with encrypted record sharing that allows system administrators to regulate privileged access to files, as well as masking credentials. Keeper's zero-knowledge system architecture provides the highest levels of security and privacy. Encryption and decryption of data always occurs locally on the user's device, and only the encrypted ciphertext is stored in KSGC. KSGC's FedRAMP and StateRAMP Authorizations follow a White House Executive Order mandating zero-trust architecture and strong encryption, along with a draft memorandum by the Office of Management and Budget and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency mandating all federal agencies adopt a zero-trust security architecture by 2024. The memorandum specifically calls out password security requirements that KSGC facilitates, including strong password policies, the removal of a deprecated requirement to require special characters and regular password rotation, and the ability to compare user passwords against weak and breached data. About Keeper Security Keeper Security is transforming the way organizations of all sizes secure their passwords, secrets and confidential information. Keeper's easy-to-use cybersecurity platform is built on a foundation of zero-trust and zero-knowledge security to protect every user on every device, while meeting the most stringent government security and compliance requirements.
