Industrial organizations gain security resilience with
unified detection and response for OT and IT with the Company's
award-winning MDR solution powered by Secureworks®
ATLANTA, June 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ --
Secureworks® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a global leader in
cybersecurity, today announced two new offerings to unify the way
industrial organizations prevent, detect, and respond to threats
across the OT and IT landscapes.
- Taegis XDR for OT – Secureworks award-winning XDR
platform that combines intelligence from OT with security telemetry
across the IT landscape into a single unified threat prevention,
detection and response platform. The platform is for Managed
Security Service Providers (MSSPs) who want to deliver Managed
Detection and Response (MDR) solutions, and for organizations that
manage their own SOCs.
- Taegis ManagedXDR for OT – Secureworks MDR offering that
empowers industrial organizations, such as manufacturers, to secure
both OT and IT environments with a team of security experts
detecting, investigating, and responding to threats 24x7.
The convergence of OT and IT in the industrial sector brings
technological and economic benefits, but also increases risk. The
more OT systems are digitally connected, the larger the overall
attack surface becomes, making OT an increasingly attractive target
for threat actors. This, combined with a global cybersecurity
talent shortage numbering in the millions, has led to unprecedented
levels of cyberattacks impacting the industrial sector. According
to Gartner®1, manufacturing companies are now
among the most targeted for cyberattacks, comprising 23% of all
attacks. Secureworks Counter Threat Unit™ data shows that
approximately 22% of Secureworks' emergency incident response
engagements between April 2022 and
April 2023 were in the manufacturing
industry alone. Manufacturing made up 20% of all ransomware-based
incident response engagements that Secureworks remediated in the
same period. Gartner also predicts that by 2025, 70% of
asset-intensive organizations will have converged their security
functions across both enterprise and operational
environments.2 Yet, in industrial environments overall,
OT is often managed differently from IT with no centralized
visibility across both.
"As OT and IT systems infrastructure becomes more interdependent
and connected, the risks from threats traversing these environments
are rapidly escalating," said Dave
Gruber, Principal Analyst with Enterprise Security Group.
"Security operations teams need visibility into the combined OT/IT
environment to detect, investigate, and respond to these complex
threats. Secureworks' move to offer a specialized OT security
solution by leveraging its own, proven Taegis XDR platform
highlights the importance of this increasing threat."
"Industrial organizations will continue to be challenged by an
expanding attack surface and evolving threat landscape. Their risks
include unplanned shutdowns, financial losses, and harm to human
populations that rely on critical services," said Kyle Falkenhagen, Chief Product Officer,
Secureworks. "And the potential costs are staggering. For example,
manufacturers lose an average of $148
per second3 of unplanned downtime – almost $9,000 per minute. As a managed solution that
unifies threat prevention, detection and response of OT and IT into
a single platform, Secureworks helps organizations with OT
environments reduce cyber risks and enhance their security postures
as they complete their digital transformations," Falkenhagen
Taegis ManagedXDR for OT
Industrial organizations can
reduce risk by bringing Taegis XDR's threat monitoring, detection,
investigation and response capabilities across both OT and IT
environments, eliminating the visibility challenges often
associated with OT and IT systems. Taegis XDR is already used
by five of the top 20 manufacturers in the world. Now, with
the first integrated MDR solution for OT and IT, organizations can
unify their security monitoring and visibility strategies under a
single platform, while gaining the benefits of a fully managed
security solution using Taegis ManagedXDR.
The solution includes:
- 24x7 threat monitoring with unlimited access to security
experts in 90 seconds or less, collaborative design of OT and IT
response processes, customizable rules and playbooks, quarterly
expert security reviews, monthly threat hunting, onboarding
support, and access to proactive services (including incident
response planning and adversarial testing).
- Taegis XDR platform, a SaaS security platform that processes
more than 640 billion events daily across more than 2,000 customers
to enable superior detection and response. The Taegis platform
integrates feeds from third-party tools that are normalized and
analyzed, along with Secureworks own proprietary data and global
threat intelligence curated by the Counter Threat Unit.
- Secureworks Taegis endpoint agent and the Secureworks Taegis
iSensor IDS/IPS device for monitoring IT and OT traffic.
- Integrations with leading OT solutions.
- Hundreds of out-of-the-box integrations across different
technology solutions including Google, Mimecast, AWS, Microsoft,
