Global cybersecurity company Secureworks, has announced the expansion of its alliances program into several new solution areas. The company says that with threats expanding into critical production environments and the service edge, detection capabilities must expand, too. Through two new partners, Netskope and SCADAfence, Secureworks has widened the range of potential security vulnerabilities addressed by its TaegisXDR system to include Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), Operational Technology (OT), and Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
Secureworks' Vice President of Strategy, Corporate Development and Strategic Alliances, Chris Bell, says: "We're bringing together the best of breed detection and response capabilities across domains where we see the threat landscape most exposed to adversary attacks.
“As part of our mission to help secure human progress, we will continue to forge new alliances that can deliver technology innovation while incorporating new threat intelligence into the methods and intentions of the adversary.”
As a leader in the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework for converged networking and security, Netskope has pioneered a unique approach for protecting data and people across devices and applications, inside and outside the traditional company network. Integration between Netskope and Secureworks will enable customers to perform all investigations and apply detectors using Secureworks Taegis for a more holistic view of threats and business risks – widening the aperture of cyber environments all the way to the edge.
Andy Horwitz, VP of Business Development at Netskope says: “Hybrid work is the new normal, and our customers look for complete SASE solutions to enable performance, deliver data, protect against threats, and maximize return-on-investment.
“We are pleased to partner with Secureworks to provide visibility and control over threats and continuously manage risk across the whole of the hybrid work environment, from cloud applications to IoT devices.”
The partnership with SCADAfence will see Securworks expand its Taegis platform into operational technology and ICS through integration.
In partnership with SCADAfence, Secureworks expands Taegis XDR into the Industrial environment, bringing intelligence from OT into a unified view with all other security telemetry across the IT landscape. SCADAfence extends industry leading insights, awareness, and asset discovery to a truly open XDR platform giving security analysts greater context around the threats they are investigating.
Paul Smith, Field CTO of SCADAfence adds: "The opportunity for a truly open XDR platform to integrate with the leading OT platform in SCADAfence provides the potential for organisations to streamline a security analyst workload by providing context and enrichment from events occurring across the entire IT and OT landscape, while enabling longer-term data retention with the combined data set."
