Kaspersky launched a cyber security solution aimed at Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
With the number of attacks on industrial systems growing at a rapid pace, Kaspersky released its Industrial CyberSecurity product. The new tool’s mission is to protect ICS/SCADA servers, HMI panels, engineering workstations, PLCs, and other devices.
Built on conventional security technologies such as anti-malware protection, whitelisting and vulnerability assessment, Industrial CyberSecurity also features integrity check for PLC programs, semantic monitoring of process control commands, and telemetry data to detect cyber-attacks targeting the physical part of an infrastructure.
The product also comes with something called “observability mode.”
This mode of operation focuses only on the detection of cyber-attacks, operation personnel faults, and anomalies inside an industrial network, alerting human operators, who can then decide what the best way to react is.
