Indegy on Thursday announced the general availability of CIRRUS, a new industrial cybersecurity-as-a-service (ICSaaS) offering.
CIRRUS is designed to help organizations of all sizes monitor and protect their operational technology (OT) environments using cloud technologies and real-time threat intelligence sharing.
Indegy CIRRUS combines four applications: Live Feed, which provides real-time updates on vulnerabilities and other high-risk threats; Enterprise Manager, which centralizes management and visibility for distributed environments; ICS Cloud Collaboration, which collects and correlates anonymous threat data from Indegy customers; and Device Integrity, which provides full security coverage via active detection technology.
CIRRUS can be deployed in both pure and hybrid cloud configurations. While the ICSaaS solution is immediately available, additional features are expected to be introduced later this summer.
“Offering ICS security as a cloud-delivered service has the potential to improve the scalability and flexibility of deployments while extending security to smaller operators that lack the resources to manage complex installations,” said Patrick Daly, analyst at 451 Research. “In addition, the ability to instantly share threat intelligence from one customer site across all of Indegy’s customers should help to reduce the time needed to detect and respond to security incidents.”
