April 26, 2019 – CyberX, an IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, announced the availability of its “IIoT/ICS Asset Visibility & Threat Monitoring App” on Cortex – the open and integrated AI-based continuous security platform. Building on Cortex allows Palo Alto Networks Cortex partners to use normalized and stitched together data from customers’ entire enterprises to build cloud-based apps that constantly deliver cybersecurity capabilities to joint customers.
The CyberX app is designed for securing OT networks. The integration of CyberX’s agentless platform with Cortex enables industrial and critical infrastructure organizations to implement zero-trust strategies for OT networks to stop the spread of attacks. Clients can auto-discover and tag all managed and unmanaged IIoT/ICS devices to automatically define granular segmentation policies based on OT-specific device types, protocols, and behavior patterns. Clients can also leverage CyberX’s continuous OT threat monitoring and IIoT/ICS threat intelligence feed — correlated with IT security events from Cortex Data Lake — to bring additional context to threat investigation and threat hunting.
Cortex is designed to simplify and improve security outcomes. Deployed on a global, scalable public cloud platform, Cortex allows security teams to speed the analysis of data sets. Cortex is enabled by Cortex Data Lake, where customers can securely and privately store and analyze data normalized for advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning to find threats and orchestrate responses.
