As part of this OEM partnership, Nextnine has integrated the SilentDefense technology from SecurityMatters into its ICS Shield solution.

ICS Shield is a full-fledged OT security management solution that protects all remote field assets from a single security and operations center, empowering industrial enterprises to implement connected operations, while minimizing security vulnerabilities. The solution automates the deployment and enforcement of operational-wide security policies with a focus on discovering a complete inventory of all operational assets, detecting anomalies and inefficiencies as well as establishing a unified framework for fully authenticated, authorized and audited secure remote access according to granular policies. In addition, ICS Shield facilitates the cyber-hardening of the industrial network with security essentials, including patching, antivirus protection, log collection, compliance reporting and more.

The integration of the SilentDefense technology into ICS Shield adds continuous network monitoring capabilities and provides augmented passive discovery and the detection of anomalies and inefficiencies. SilentDefense is an advanced OT network monitoring technology that is designed to ensure that the underlying networks of cyber resilient industrial environments are healthy and threat-free. This technology improves the ability of ICS Shield to learn and validate network communication patterns and process operations with in-depth analysis of industrial protocols as well as identify rogue and malfunctioning devices, intrusions and attacks.
