Today, Dragos Inc., cybersecurity for industrial controls systems (ICS)/operational technology (OT) environments specialists, have announced the expansion of its combined capabilities in partnership with Rockwell Automation, the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation. With this expansion, Rockwell will be making the Dragos Platform available to organisations for enhanced ICS/OT cybersecurity threat detection, providing global deployment services and support capabilities to help customers operationalise their security investment.
Previously, Dragos announced a global agreement between Dragos and Rockwell for the OT Incident Response Retainer (IRR) programme that helps industrial organisations prepare for, respond to, and recover from cyber incidents in OT environments. The Dragos Platform is a market-leading ICS/OT cybersecurity technology solution that reduces cyber risk to industrial environments. Codified with OT-specific threat intelligence and insights from the industry’s largest team of ICS/OT practitioners, it provides visibility into assets and vulnerabilities, detects cyber threats to industrial systems, and enables efficient response through forensic investigation and OT-specific playbooks.
With this expanded capability, industrial asset owners and manufacturers will benefit from greatly enhanced visibility into OT environments, improved threat detection and response across the entire industrial OT network, and fast threat detection, among many other things.
“This expansion of cybersecurity capabilities in partnership with Dragos is a natural continuation of the strong relationship we’ve built together,” said Matt Kennedy, vice president, Global Capabilities and Innovation, Lifecycle Services at Rockwell Automation. “By offering the value of the Dragos Platform alongside the services and expertise from both Rockwell and Dragos, we will help manufacturers achieve their digital transformation goals while maintaining the safety and security of their OT infrastructure.”
“Rockwell Automation has always been a champion of the manufacturing and industrial community and we are honoured to have them as a strategic partner that helps customers scale their Dragos Platform investments to best meet their cybersecurity objectives,” said Matthew Cowell, Vice President of Business Development, Dragos, Inc. “Rockwell brings significant value to manufacturers with their ability to design and implement a defensible architecture, provide virtualisation infrastructure, and incorporate deployment and configuration expertise with the Dragos Platform by providing boots-on-the-ground resources. This is all complemented by a global remote support organisation.”
This news comes shortly after Dragos announced that they had raised $74m in Series D Round Extension Funding.
