Radiflow, a globally renowned provider of cybersecurity solutions for industrial automation networks, has announced a major version release for its iSID Detection and Analysis Platform that will enhance operational asset management and streamline analyst workflow to strengthen the security posture of its customers. iSID Detection and Analysis Platform Radiflow’s iSID Detection and Analysis Platform provides proactive cybersecurity for critical infrastructures through non-intrusive monitoring of distributed production networks. “We are listening to our current and potential customers to get more streamlined, easy-to-use, alerts, analytics and reporting capabilities together with additional integration with already deployed OT management and IT cyber security systems,” said Michael Langer, Radiflow Chief Product Officer. Automatic asset identification and threats prioritisation The new 5.7 release marks the biggest update to the platform and includes over a dozen improvements. These include automatic asset identification, threats prioritisation using dynamic risk calculation and refined Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) across an expanded suite of OT protocols. Another major area of improvement is deeper third-party integration. In an industry-first case, Radiflow iSID will integrate with COPA-DATA zenon, a software platform for the automated operation of manufacturing and infrastructure equipment, installed at 175,000 locations in over 50 countries. Integration with COPA-DATA zenon Integration with COPA-DATA zenon software platform offers a bi-directional integrated solution Integration with COPA-DATA zenon software platform offers a bi-directional integrated solution that enhances the functionality of both the zenon SCADA Management Platform, and the iSID Industrial Threat Detection and Monitoring system, by correlating engineering, automation and cyber-defence data, all accessible through highly-customisable HMIs to create a ‘single-pane’ interface for both operations and security. As part of the integration, zenon users gain cyber security alerts for every asset that are enriched by iSID gaining access to operational information to create better risk scoring. This is enhanced by new investigation capabilities to help define root causes of alerts quickly and to initiate rapid remediation. RSA SecurID integration Radiflow’s integration capabilities have been further strengthened with automatic rule creation and enforcement through Fortinet FortiGate Firewall integration and multi-factor authentication (MFA) to iSID through RSA SecurID integration. These are also supplemented by an expanded and improved REST API SDK. “Our latest release offers enhanced capabilities for mature customers that are expanding their deployments from an initial mapping phase to a more advanced use of the system,” said Ilan Barda, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Radiflow. Attaining advanced risk management capabilities Barda adds, “iSID enhanced product features coupled with Radiflow’s superior technical implementation team and our local and global partners’ expertise, will assist cyber security stakeholders within ICS/IIOT sector to achieve advanced risk management capabilities while the new level of integration will streamline the entire process.” Radiflow iSID Industrial Detection Platform version 5.7 is available as an upgrade to all existing customers. Radiflow will be presenting a guest lecture on the topic of third-party security integration at the upcoming Copa-Data zenonIZE-20, online conference on Wednesday June 17th, 2020.
Radiflow, a provider of cybersecurity solutions for industrial automation networks, announces that the company releases a new version of its iSID industrial threat detection solution. In this new version, iSID analyses the OT network and maps the operational business processes of the industrial facility. All business processes on the OT network are then graphically displayed, while each network-connected asset now includes the details of the business processes that each is connected to within the asset inventory maintained by iSID. Detecting potential attack paths iSID would calculate a risk score based on the increased attack surface and potential damage The iSID operator can then use this information to rank the business processes according to their critical impact and adjust the risk scoring, resulting in a business-driven prioritisation of the risk mitigations. In addition, Radiflow has added a framework for delivering on-going insight and actionable recommendations for reducing the risks on the OT network. For each identified risk, iSID calculates a risk score based a set of best practices for OT cyber security defined by Radiflow. Each identified risk also includes a description of its potential impact on operational business processes and recommendations for mitigation. For example, upon detecting potential attack paths to and access vectors on the OT network, iSID would calculate a risk score based on the increased attack surface and potential damage, and then provide the user with recommendations for threat mitigation measures. Maintaining and improving performance The research and advisory company Gartner recommends in its July 2019 Hype Cycle for Managing Operational Technology, 2019 (available to subscribers) that “security and risk managers should map OT leading performance indicators against IT/OT leading risk indicators to write security policies consistent with maintaining and improving performance”. These new risk analysis capabilities are part of our overall product strategy" “These new risk analysis capabilities are part of our overall product strategy to deliver our customers with the intuitive tools to manage their risks in a business-driven manner, which we believe are aligned with Gartner’s recently published recommendations to security and risk managers,” said Michael Langer, Chief Product Officer at Radiflow. “It is also important to highlight that these new capabilities are a direct extension of the Dynamic Vulnerability Scoring for OT assets included in our previous release of iSID.” Industrial enterprise customers “By mapping business processes and prioritising OT risks according business impact, industrial enterprises can address the most important vulnerabilities first in order to reduce the potential for business interruptions, which are critical for factories, manufacturers and similar industrial enterprises, especially in the private sector,” further explained Langer. These new additions to the iSID solution can be leveraged by Radiflow’s OT MSSP partners to offer on-going OT risk analysis and mediation services to their industrial enterprise customers. Radiflow is scheduling demonstrations of this new version of its iSID solution on its web site.
