AlienVault Releases SCADA SIEM for Critical Infrastructure

Industrial networks face increasing threat of incidents causing economic, physical and human damage

AlienVault ICS SIEM is a family of purpose-built appliances which provide a platform for security and compliance management across industrial process control networks.

"SIEM as a technology provides the dashboard for planning and implementing a complete solution. AlienVault ICS SIEM uniquely combines the necessary supporting technologies, such as vulnerability assessment and intrusion detection, in a physical and architectural format appropriate for industrial applications.”

Wirehead Security is one of the key partners working with AlienVault to bring these technologies to industrial facilities.

“We are very pleased with our choice of AlienVault ICS SIEM for a major urban water treatment customer on the East Coast,” said Wirehead’s CTO Michael Menefee.

“For this critical environment we needed a unified solution with the SCADA capabilities not found in IT-centric solutions. With AlienVault ICS SIEM we have a solution that can address the security and compliance needs of customers in process control industries including electric power utilities, public works and oil & gas. You just cannot get that level of capability, reliability and integration with legacy IT or ICS solutions alone.”

AlienVault ICS SIEM expands on this legacy of experience with rugged hardware, SCADA-specific intrusion detection signatures, tight integration with ICS equipment manufacturers and support for regulatory compliance frameworks including NERC CIP, NRC 73.54 and CFATS.
