PAS Global, LLC, the solution provider of industrial control system (ICS) cybersecurity, process safety, and asset reliability in the energy, power, and process industries, announced today the release of PAS Cyber Integrity™ 6.3. The new release includes risk analytics which provides a unique approach to continuously measure and identify cybersecurity risks to multi-vendor OT (Operational Technology) endpoints, as well as forensic analysis capabilities that provide deep insight into the impact and propagation of a cyber attack.
“Industrial facilities must swiftly identify and remediate OT asset cybersecurity risks to preserve operational safety and reliability,” says Sid Snitkin, vice president of cybersecurity services at ARC Advisory Group. “This can be challenging, as those securing vital OT systems may lack the visibility, context, and situational awareness needed to identify risks, prioritize remediation activities, and accelerate incident response and recovery. Cyber Integrity risk analytics provide a comprehensive view of cyber asset inventory, configurations, and vulnerabilities across industrial control systems.”
PAS Cyber Integrity helps industrial companies secure their most critical assets – the OT systems that enable safe and reliable production. It enables companies to gather and maintain a complete, accurate inventory of OT cyber assets, capture configuration baselines, monitor for unauthorized configuration changes, automate a continuous vulnerability and patch management process across the enterprise, and implement a program for system backup and recovery.
PAS Cyber Integrity risk analytics enables industrial companies to:
- Continuously measure industrial endpoint security posture and provide visibility into cybersecurity risks: vulnerabilities, patch currency gaps, configuration baseline deviations, and unauthorized configuration changes down to the field instrument level.
- Identify OT endpoint security degradation and risk propagation so that OT security specialists, automation engineers, and risk/compliance managers can prioritize remediation and reduce industrial cybersecurity attack surfaces.
- Enable forensic investigations via extensive multi-vendor configuration and referential insight to provide foundational ICS cybersecurity, enterprise scalability, performance, and platform independence.
Cyber Integrity is a proven solution built upon the PAS Integrity™ platform, which today manages configurations for hundreds of industrial companies across the world. PAS solutions are used at over 1,380 industrial facilities including 13 of the top 15 chemical companies, 10 of the top 15 refining companies, and 5 of the top 15 power companies in the world.
“Our customers must continuously measure multi-vendor OT endpoint security posture and visualize risk propagation to ensure safe and reliable production,” says Mark Carrigan, chief operating officer at PAS Global, LLC. “Cyber Integrity enables OT cybersecurity professionals to discover cybersecurity risks, expedite remediation, and facilitate forensic analysis and response for OT devices down to level 0 – something that network-based monitoring solutions simply cannot do.”
PAS will showcase the new Cyber Integrity risk analytics release at the SANS ICS Security Summit on March 18-19, 2019, in Orlando, Florida.
