Radiflow, global provider of industrial cybersecurity solutions for industrial automation networks, has announced that the company has launched a partner program for MSSPs to offer OT cybersecurity services. OT MSSP partner program Radiflow’s new OT MSSP partner program provides the framework for MSSPs to offer new cybersecurity services dedicated to ICS/SCADA networks to their industrial enterprise and critical infrastructure customers. Radiflow is aiming this offering at MSSPs that already provide IT cybersecurity services and are looking to enter the OT space as well as industrial engineering companies that are interested in expanding their service offerings to include cybersecurity services. Radiflow’s program for OT MSSPs is based on the company’s iSID Industrial Threat Detection System Radiflow’s program for OT MSSPs is based on the company’s iSID Industrial Threat Detection System running in the Cloud environment of an MSSP partner. iSID can be utilised by an MSSP as the starting point for an ongoing network monitoring service that involves building a network topology map of all devices, connections, ports and data traffic flows on an OT network and handling alerts to any changes to this baseline understanding. As part of an ongoing networking monitoring service, an MSSP can also use iSID to detect any breach attempts and apply security upgrades to any newly detected devices. OT cybersecurity services MSSPs can enhance their OT cybersecurity service portfolio by leveraging the new automated vulnerability mapping and assessment processes included in the recently released version of iSID. Based on an advanced risk assessment engine and attack vector simulation model, iSID dynamically calculates an exploitability score for each device on an OT network and identifies the most critical attack vectors. MSSPs can utilise these dynamic mapping and scoring capabilities for a service that involves remediating vulnerabilities that are prioritised based on the specific context of a customer’s OT network and the impact on its business operations. “Most industrial enterprises and critical infrastructure operators lack the internal resources to adequately protect their OT networks,” said Aaron Sherrill, Senior Analyst at 451 Research. “This situation has created a unique opportunity for MSSPs, and Radiflow offers them the tools, procedures and expertise required to establish the framework for building OT-dedicated cybersecurity services.” iSID Industrial Threat Detection System For customers that prefer to maintain cybersecurity operations on-premise, Radiflow provides the option of granting the MSSP secure access for network monitoring with an iSID system that is installed at the customer’s facility.
