Tripwire provides unified visibility for networks, endpoints and controllers in manufacturing environments
Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of endpoint detection and response, security, compliance and IT operations solutions, has announced that Tripwire® Configuration Compliance Manager (CCM) now supports ANSI / ISA-62443, a global standard for securing industrial automation systems, controllers, and associated networking equipment configurations. Tripwire CCM can now reduce cyber security risks from external attacks, malicious insiders and human error while protecting critical infrastructure reliability, uptime and safety of industrial automation and manufacturing environments.
“By extending our CCM solution we can now address the unique cyber security challenges associated with demanding operational technology (OT) environments,” said Rekha Shenoy, vice president and general manager of industrial cyber security for Belden, Tripwire’s parent company. “With this offering, we are able to assess and monitor changes that can indicate a cyber attack without connecting to or communicating with PLC or control devices. Tripwire CCM maximizes uptime while improving security.”
Without awareness of communication and activity of each segment in an OT environment, evaluating risks and security of assets becomes increasingly difficult. Operations and security staff must be able to define and verify baseline behavior to assess and detect possible anomalies, and then decide a response.
Tripwire CCM allows engineers and cyber security personnel to audit industrial automation networks and controllers for secure and approved configurations. It also identifies unauthorized changes, configuration hardening errors and security vulnerabilities and provides prioritized remediation guidance to reduce risks without affecting operational availability, reliability or safety. Tripwire CCM can be layered on top of a standard implementation of FactoryTalk® AssetCentre from Rockwell Automation for greater visibility into industrial automation applications.
