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. About Swimlane Swimlane is the leader in cloud-scale, low-code security automation.

Arkose Labs™ Introduces Arkose Email Intelligence™

Arkose Labs | January 30, 2023

Arkose Labs™, one of the worldwide leaders in bot management and account security, announced the launch of Arkose Email Intelligence™. This new tool prevents bots and bad actors from using fraudulent or dangerous email addresses to target online services and apps. Legacy email intelligence systems are not optimized and are too costly to utilize in high-volume applications such as new account registration that are targets of bot-driven assaults. Arkose Email Intelligence combines email risk discovery with the industry-leading Arkose Protect, a bot detection and challenge platform, to create the first email intelligence solution. This solution prevents bots and bad actors from using fake, throw-away, and other high-risk email addresses to develop synthetic online accounts and launch volumetric account takeover (ATO) attacks. In the second half of 2022, the creation of bogus accounts increased by 81% compared to the first half. Additionally, 11% of all attack attempt sessions were ATOs in 2022 and were of the same severity. Extremely high market demand exists for an email intelligence service that is both highly effective and reasonably priced. Existing services are exorbitantly costly, often compelling CISOs and product teams to use email intelligence at restricted locations more profoundly in the user flow of an application, such as during the payment transaction. This trade-off leaves important occasions, such as the creation of a new account, exposed to assault and misuse by email addresses that are fake or high-risk. Arkose Email Intelligence is meant to provide robust abuse protection at a much lower cost than previous industry solutions. This allows businesses to afford email intelligence beyond standard transactions. In addition to combating automated and fraud farm attacks, Arkose Email Intelligence offers organizations over forty relevant data insights. These extensive data points and signals give a multidimensional perspective of the risk connected with the email address, allowing for additional threat assessment and decision-making. About Arkose Labs Arkose Labs is one of the industry leaders in bot management. Its novel method identifies genuine user intent and mitigates threats in real time. In addition, risk assessments and interactive authentication difficulties degrade the return on investment (ROI) behind attacks, ensuring long-term security and enhancing consumer throughput. The firm, headquartered in San Mateo, California, with operations in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia, San Jose, Costa Rica, and London, United Kingdom, placed 106th on the North American Deloitte Fast 500 list for 2022.
