Emerson and Dragos partner to enhance cybersecurity protection for power and water industries

July 30, 2019 — Emerson and Dragos, developer of the Dragos Platform for industrial cybersecurity asset detection, threat detection and response, have signed a global agreement intended to enable power producers and water utilities to strengthen the security of their critical assets. Emerson will integrate threat detection technology from the Dragos Platform into its Ovation automation platform and Power and Water Cybersecurity Suite. Beyond this agreement, Emerson and Dragos will continue to explore additional areas of collaboration with regards to solutions used by Emerson power and water industry customers.

The Dragos Platform passively identifies assets and monitors network communications, giving customers greater visibility into their environments and insights into threats through intelligence-driven analytics, as well as prescriptive guidance in the form of playbooks and other tools to help them investigate and respond to cyber incidents more effectively. This additional layer of protection complements Emerson’s robust portfolio of security offerings for industrial control systems in the power and water industries.
