Industrial software developer, AVEVA, inked a partnership pact with cybersecurity provider, Virsec.

With this partnership, AVEVA will provide access to in-memory cyber protection for Industrial Control (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Virsec’s patented technology helps reduce risks posed by targeted cyberattacks across IT and OT systems.

Digital transformation at industrial and engineering organizations has prompted a renewed focus on securing digital assets. As Information Technology (IT) systems and Operations Technology (OT) converge, an increase in high-profile attacks targeting critical infrastructure has raised security concerns. Virsec Trusted Execution provides a layer of protection against these advanced attacks by ensuring applications perform only as designed.

On January 30, AVEVA signed a partnership agreement with Cylance  to provide end-point protection to AVEVA’s industrial software portfolio. That deal combined with the complementary in-memory security protection enabled by Virsec boosts security of AVEVA’s industrial software portfolio.
