AVEVA signed a partnership agreement with Virsec, a provider of cybersecurity solutions designed to counter advanced cyberattacks. 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 IT and OT systems.
Virsec Trusted Execution helps to protect against advanced cyberattacks
Digital transformation at industrial and engineering organizations has prompted a renewed focus on securing digital assets. As Information Technology (IT) systems and Operations Technology (OT) converge, an increase in high-profile attacks targeting critical infrastructure has raised security concerns. Virsec Trusted Execution is designed to provide a layer of protection against these advanced attacks by helping to ensure applications perform only as designed.
On January 30, 2018, a partnership with Cylance was announced to help 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.
