CyberX partners with Spire Solutions to strengthen industrial cybersecurity solutions in the Middle East

February 14, 2019 – Regional cybersecurity expert Spire Solutions and CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, announced a partnership to strengthen industrial cybersecurity for industrial and critical infrastructure organizations in the Middle East. CyberX was demonstrated at the Spire Solutions stand CDS-B3 during the Cyber Defence Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on February 13th and 14th.

Recent cyberattacks such as WannaCry, NotPetya, and TRITON demonstrate that ICS and Operational Technology (OT) networks continue to be soft targets for adversaries — increasing the risk of costly production outages, safety failures, environmental incidents, and theft of sensitive intellectual property.

According to Gartner, “OT networks have been unmanaged, from a security and risk perspective, for many years. They are flat, with a mix of OT protocols, unidentified assets, legacy systems and devices with unsecure communications.”1

With the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) driving the deployment of billions of new devices to monitor and control critical OT processes such as refining, distribution pipelines, and robotics, OT environments are increasingly connected to enterprise IT networks and the internet — making them even more vulnerable to dangerous attacks.

CyberX is an industrial cybersecurity company to have been awarded a patent for its ICS-aware threat detection analytics and machine learning technology, and the only industrial cybersecurity company founded by blue-team cyber experts.
