Tenable, Siemens form partnership to secure critical infrastructure

Tenable, Inc., a cyber exposure company, and Siemens announced a strategic partnership to help energy, utilities and oil and gas companies close the industry readiness gap with a new solution for industrial asset discovery and vulnerability management. At a time when the risk of cyberattacks against critical infrastructure has grown exponentially, the global leaders in cybersecurity and OT have teamed up to launch “industrial security” from Tenable, which Siemens is delivering as a service to help companies secure and protect their critical OT assets.

The Tenable-Siemens partnership announced can help organizations address this challenge of not knowing where they are at greatest risk. By leveraging the capabilities of both companies, customers will gain a better understanding of where their OT assets may be vulnerable. The combination of Tenable’s technology, the first OT-dedicated passive vulnerability detection solution that gives customers continuous visibility into their greatest risks, combined with Siemens’ domain expertise and operational knowhow, is a powerful solution that can help customers close this knowledge gap so they can protect their critical assets.

The number of cyberattacks worldwide continues to grow, with OT becoming a growing target, now comprising 30% of all cyberattacks, with a major impact on productivity, uptime, efficiency and safety, according to recent research conducted by Ponemon Institute on the state of cybersecurity in the US oil and gas industry

Siemens delivers and integrates best-of-breed technologies, empowering our customers to prioritize their most critical assets, continuously monitor their operating environment and build resiliency so they can rapidly respond and recover in the event of a breach, the company said in a press release.

Industrial security from Tenable provides asset discovery and vulnerability detection purpose-built for industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Using passive network monitoring based on Tenable’s Nessus Network Monitor, designed for critical systems which require a non-intrusive approach to vulnerability detection, the OT-native solution helps identify and prioritize OT risks so organizations can keep safety-critical production assets secure and fully functional.
