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.

Sevco Security Introduces First Cybersecurity Asset Attack Surface Dashboards

Sevco Security | December 14, 2022

Sevco Security, the cloud-native security asset intelligence platform for enterprises that want an accurate IT inventory, today introduced the industry’s first cybersecurity asset attack surface analytics dashboards. The new dashboards extend the Sevco platform to give CISO and IT leaders deep insights into the security coverage and state of their IT assets, enabling security teams to identify and eliminate security gaps in the enterprise cyberattack surface. Enterprise environments increasingly include a wide range of hardware, software, mobile devices, cloud infrastructure, and other IT assets as the fundamental backbone for operating the business and engaging with customers. However, with management of assets often spread across departments and geographies, it has become increasingly difficult for executive leadership to understand the security state of all their assets and to maintain accuracy in a dynamic environment. Equally challenging is the inability to gain insights into abandoned or stale IT assets to effectively mitigate the security risks that they introduce. Complex enterprise environments are increasingly experiencing incomplete security coverage with upwards of 19% of assets that have missing or stale security controls like endpoint protection and patch management. The new Sevco Security dashboards fill a critical gap in cybersecurity attack surface management by providing context-based analysis of enterprise-wide assets that surfaces risks associated with IT hygiene, compliance, and policy enforcement. “As organizations innovate and expand their asset footprint, they must have seamless visibility into the security state of their assets because they cannot manage what they cannot measure. “Sevco Security delivers the critical data for CISOs to thoroughly understand their cybersecurity asset attack surface and confidently report their defensive security posture to the board.” J.J. Guy, co-founder and CEO of Sevco Security With the new expansion to its platform, Sevco Security provides customers with data rich and customizable dashboard reports, including: Security coverage: Provides critical insights on asset security controls, allowing customers to identify gaps in coverage and proactively protect the previously unknown attack surface. This also empowers companies to manage internal governance and regulatory compliance requirements to monitor and validate that their security investments are fully deployed. Asset snapshots: Captures the detailed attributes of the assets across the infrastructure, such as IP address, user, and operating system so customers can quickly see the state of any device at any point of time. With asset snapshots, incident response and IT team members can quickly identify when an asset change occurred and manage decisions on restoring an asset to a previous state. Timeline trending: Enterprise assets are tracked on a daily trendline empowering IT and security leaders to gain context of what’s typical for their environment and to readily view spikes and outlier activity. Out-of-the-box trending data is automatically captured for total devices, new devices, inactive devices in the last 15 days, total users, and new users. Custom, interactive dashboards: In addition to the pre-built dashboards, users can create and save unlimited queries on their asset telemetry to produce customized insights dashboards. This puts asset data analysis at users’ fingertips, providing an easy way to obtain tailored insights in a top-level dashboard. All dashboards are interactive, allowing users to ‘click’ and drill deeper into the data for pinpoint clarity on a particular area of interest. Complex asset environments are a normal operating fabric for businesses. Sevco Security is dedicated to helping organizations capture a comprehensive view of their asset ecosystem and readily identify and address any security risks they pose. The new cybersecurity asset attack surface dashboards are now available to customers. About Sevco Sevco Security is the cloud-native security asset management platform for enterprises that require an accurate IT inventory. Its patented telemetry technology creates a unified inventory that is updated continuously to deliver real-time asset intelligence and help security and IT teams identify and close their previously unknown security gaps. Founded in 2020 and based in Austin, Texas, Sevco is backed by SYN Ventures, .406 Ventures, Accomplice and Bill Wood Ventures.
