NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence to Demonstrate CyberX Platform

Collaboration aims to prevent operational disruption in ICS/SCADA manufacturing environments by accelerating adoption of behavioral anomaly detection technology

BOSTON, Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CyberX, provider of the most widely-deployed industrial cybersecurity platform for continuously reducing ICS risk, today announced that the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has chosen to demonstrate how the CyberX platform can help accelerate adoption of behavioral anomaly detection technology.

According to NIST, "behavioral anomaly detection technology can provide a key security component in sustaining business operations, particularly those based on ICS."

CyberX is collaborating with NIST to help industrial organizations reduce risk by detecting and responding faster to targeted attacks, malware, and insider threats. CyberX's platform enables organizations to move from simple ICS perimeter security to continuous ICS threat monitoring, asset discovery, and threat intelligence. In particular, it incorporates patent-pending, ICS-specific behavioral analytics and self-learning to rapidly detect anomalous behavior.

This is particularly important now that WannaCry and NotPetya caused significant operational disruption and financial losses for manufacturing organizations worldwide.

"Recent cyberattacks on industrial organizations make it very clear that insufficient ICS security has a direct impact on the bottom-line," said Omer Schneider, CEO and co-founder of CyberX. "A key benefit of deploying CyberX at the NCCoE is the ability to help businesses implement Active ICS/SCADA Cyber Defense so they can continuously identify and counter threats. We are delighted to support NIST on this important initiative."

As part of the NCCoE project, CyberX will be demonstrated in simulated manufacturing environments incorporating a diverse range of HMIs, PLCs, and OT protocols from multiple OT vendors. The project will result in a NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide demonstrating how companies can strengthen controls with behavioral anomaly detection, without impacting the performance of their operational technology (OT) environments. 

In addition, the security characteristics of behavioral anomaly detection will be mapped to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), a practical and widely used standard for operationalizing controls based on business objectives.

About CyberX (Twitter: @CyberX_Labs)
CyberX provides the most widely deployed industrial cybersecurity platform for continuously reducing ICS risk. By monitoring OT networks for targeted attacks, malware, and insider threats, the CyberX platform enables organizations to prevent costly production outages, catastrophic safety failures, and theft of corporate IP.

Founded in 2013 by IDF cyber veterans previously responsible for protecting critical national infrastructure, CyberX has gained considerable industry recognition including being named a 2015 Gartner Cool Vendor and one of the "10 Coolest IoT Start-Ups" by CRN. CyberX is also the only industrial cybersecurity supplier selected for the SINET16 Innovator Award sponsored by the US DHS and DoD, and the only ICS security vendor recognized by the International Society of Automation (ISA).

The CyberX platform addresses the need for more robust industrial security by delivering continuous threat monitoring and asset discovery for ICS/SCADA networks, leveraging its deep understanding of industrial protocols combined with ICS-specific behavioral analytics, threat intelligence, and risk analytics.

An active member of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the ICS-ISAC, CyberX's groundbreaking ICS threat intelligence research was recently featured in the popular McGraw-Hill book series, "ICS Hacking Exposed." For more information visit CyberX-Labs.com.

Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
