AVEVA announces partnership with Virsec to enhance industrial cybersecurity solutions

August 1, 2018 – AVEVA signed a partnership agreement with Virsec. With this partnership, AVEVA customers gain access to in-memory cyber protection for Industrial Control (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Virsec’s technology is designed to reduce risks posed by targeted cyberattacks across IT and OT systems.

Digital transformation at industrial and engineering organizations has prompted a renewed focus on securing digital assets. As Information Technology (IT) systems and Operations Technology (OT) converge, an increase in high-profile attacks targeting critical infrastructure has raised security concerns. Virsec Trusted Execution provides a layer of protection against these advanced attacks by ensuring applications perform only as designed.

On January 30, 2018, a partnership with Cylance was announced to provide end-point protection to AVEVA’s industrial software portfolio. This protection – combined with the complementary in-memory security protection enabled by Virsec – is intended to strengthen the overall security of AVEVA’s industrial software portfolio.
