Dragos Inc. has announced the expansion of its global agreement with Emerson.
With this agreement expansion, Emerson has validated the Dragos Platform within its DeltaVTM distributed control system (DCS).
In addition, Dragos is incorporating DeltaV DCS platform-specific capabilities into the Dragos platform, including protocol dissectors, asset characterisations, threat behaviour analytics, and investigation playbooks to expand Emerson’s cybersecurity assessment capabilities and enhance threat detection and response for process industries.
“We recognise the increasing risk from the growing number of both targeted and untargeted cyber threats against industrial operations and are committed to continuously strengthening our OT cybersecurity capabilities with best-in-class technology that allow us to proactively address the evolving threat environment head-on,” said Alexandre Peixoto, Cybersecurity Business Director of Emerson’s Process Systems and Software business. “Expanding our agreement with Dragos allows us to offer market-leading ICS/OT-specific cybersecurity to a large, diverse section of our customer base and provide the processing and manufacturing community with the protection they need to safely and efficiently run their operations.”
“Emerson has been a fantastic collaborator and we are proud of the work we have done together to help power producers and water utilities securely run their operations,” said Matt Cowell, Vice President of Business Development at Dragos.
“By growing our agreement and bringing industrial cybersecurity to an even wider group of industries, we are able to reach and protect a wider array of organisations in the process industry sector, many of whom are just embarking on the path of digital transformation and have immediate needs to reduce risk as they expand connectivity.”
Emerson and Dragos previously signed a global agreement to integrate threat detection technology from the Dragos Platform into Emerson’s Ovation™ automation platform and Power and Water Cybersecurity Suite.
