(Eduard Kovacs – SecurityWeek) – Cybersecurity firm Trend Micro on Monday announced a new endpoint security solution developed by TXOne Networks for devices in operational technology (OT) environments.

Launched in 2018 as a joint venture between Trend Micro and industrial networking solutions provider Moxa, TXOne offers solutions for protecting industrial control systems (ICS) against cyber threats.

The new solution, TXOne StellarProtect, is designed to protect OT endpoints against malware and other threats without requiring an internet connection. StellarProtect includes anti-malware, threat scanning, application and certificate inventory, anomaly detection, unauthorized USB device blocking, and integrity protection capabilities.

The company says its new product leverages machine learning and ICS root of trust, which collects more than 1,000 software certificates and licenses and verifies them.

Another endpoint protection product provided by TXOne is StellarEnforce, which secures legacy industrial systems by only allowing pre-approved applications and services to run.

(SecurityWeek - Eduard Kovacs) - An unusually high volume of malicious internal reconnaissance and lateral movement have been observed in the manufacturing industry, which experts believe is a result of the rapid convergence between IT and OT networks. The data comes from the 2018 Spotlight Report on Manufacturing released on Wednesday by threat detection company Vectra. The report is based on observations from another report released on Wednesday by the company, the 2018 Black Hat Edition of the Attacker Behavior Industry Report, which shows

By Edgard Capdevielle, CEO of Nozomi Networks Power generation, substation and electric grid operators and many other critical infrastructure sectors typically use equipment from a heterogenous assortment of vendors. This equipment runs thousands of real-time processes generating a huge volume of data. Increasing the interconnectedness and digitization of these systems is a pillar of improved operational efficiencies, however, it isn’t risk free. Analyzing and monitoring this data to detect anomalies that might be caused by a cyberattack is akin to searching for

By: Rick Grinnell, co-founder and managing partner of Glasswing Ventures. In this modern connected age, there’s no shortage of risks to fret about. I hate to add one more, but cyberattacks against utilities and power plants have recently rocketed to the top of the list of major security concerns. For instance, a June report from ESET released new research revealing that the Ukrainian power grid was taken down in late 2015 by the Win32/Industroyer malware. This malware has been considered the biggest threat to

By: Eduard Kovacs (SecurityWeek) - The assessments conducted by the U.S. Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) in 2016 showed that inadequate boundary protection has remained the most prevalent weakness in critical infrastructure organizations. ICS-CERT conducted 130 assessments in the fiscal year 2016, which is more than in any previous year. Monitor newsletters published by ICS-CERT this year show that it has already conducted 74 assessments in the first half of 2017. Assessments are offered to both government organizations and private sector companies

By Cameron Camp, Security Researcher, ESET Industroyer, the recent complex malware targeting industrial control systems, offers attackers a modular complex way to attack systems like the power grid. What are the implications of this? For years, adversaries have been quietly testing the defenses of bulk critical infrastructure like gas and oil systems, hydroelectric dams and the power grid. In recent years, starting with Stuxnet in 2010, more focused attempts at directly manipulating industrial systems have started to gain prominence, including Industroyer, which

Multiple cyberattacks on critical infrastructure facilities in 2016 resulted in mere inconvenience or embarrassment. How long can dumb luck keep us from harm? By Michael Shalyt, VP Product, APERIO Systems When the U.S. Energy Department released a nearly 500 page report this month warning of an “imminent” threat to the electrical grid, it was the latest reminder of just how dependent our day-to-day existence is on critical infrastructure networks — from power grids and water supplies to transportation networks and more. In 2016, attackers clearly
