Respond Software Partners with ForeScout to Strengthen ICS Cybersecurity Program ...


NASHUA, N.H. (BUSINESS WIRE) Respond Software teams up with ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading

IoT security company, to roll out a new technical integration called

Virtual ICS Threat Analyst Logic (VITAL). The partnership was initiated

by SecurityMatters, now part of ForeScout, to help automate threat

analyst decision-making processes for industrial control system (ICS)

asset owners.

The complexity of industrial environments has led to an increasing

number of ICS-specific cyber-threats, in which asset owners have no

visibility. Finding and scaling a team of skilled ICS security operation

center analysts, threat hunters, incident responders, and forensic

analysts is a challenge for all asset owners. The lack of available

skilled security personnel, combined with the fact that today’s security

teams are incredibly busy, makes it challenging to focus on priority

issues. The integration between ForeScout’s SilentDefense and The

Respond Analyst streamlines ICS security operations for critical

infrastructure asset owners by escalating and prioritizing critical

incidents, while eliminating false positive alerts.

“Ensuring the availability of critical infrastructure means being able

to defend these systems against malicious intent. It’s not feasible to

hire enough security experts that understand the nuances of ICS systems

and cyber threats,” says Curley Henry, deputy CISO, Southern Company.

“We need solutions that bridge the gap and give us the capability to

continuously monitor and analyze key networks and quickly make

appropriate decisions.”

ForeScout analyzes industrial network communications, provides rich

information about network assets and generates alerts in real time in

response to cyber threats. Respond Analyst is the first-of-its-kind

security decision automation software. Joint customers who implement

VITAL can feed detailed ICS analytics data from SilentDefense to Respond

Analyst. The Respond Analysts’ Intelligent Decision Engine comes

pre-built and ready to analyze and triage ICS alerts and escalate

detailed security incidents that require immediate response by a

security team.

“The success that leading ICS asset owners in the U.S. are already

having with VITAL is very exciting,” said Damiano Bolzini, vice

president of industrial and OT business unit, ForeScout. “Since today’s

security teams are working harder than ever, this integration between

ForeScout’s SilentDefense and Respond Analyst is strengthening our joint

customers’ ICS security teams by allowing them to focus on the serious

security issues.”

“It’s becoming increasingly important to protect our nation’s ICS

infrastructure with consistent and continuous monitoring,” said Chris

Triolo, vice president of customer success, Respond Software. “The

Respond Analyst decision engine has the combined experience of Respond

Software and ForeScout built in. Customers can add the critical capacity

and capability necessary to protect ICS assets without adding

additional staff.”
