AVEVA signed a partnership agreement with Virsec, a provider of advanced cybersecurity technologies. With this partnership, AVEVA customers gain access to in-memory cyber protection for Industrial Control (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Virsec’s patented technology can help to reduce risks posed by targeted cyberattacks across Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) systems.
Digital transformation at industrial and engineering organizations has prompted a renewed focus on securing digital assets. As IT and OT systems converge, an increase in high-profile attacks targeting critical infrastructure has raised security concerns. Virsec Trusted Execution provides an added layer of protection against these advanced attacks by helping to ensure that applications perform only as designed.
On January 30, 2018, a partnership with Cylance was announced to provide end-point protection to AVEVA’s industrial software portfolio. This protection, combined with the complementary in-memory security protection enabled by Virsec, helps to strengthen the overall security of AVEVA’s industrial software portfolio.
