SecurityMatters updated its OT network monitoring and intelligence platform, SilentDefense.

The new version of SilentDefense (V. 3.13) can help users implement a cyber defense strategy based on the proactive exploitation of intelligence information.

New features include:
• Threat intelligence ingestion to offer a rapid and continuous protection against any cyber threats. The ingestion of indicator of compromise (IoCs) in Structured Threat Information eXpression (STIX) empowers enterprise-grade customers for integration at scale with complex security infrastructures.
• Forensic time machine lets users perform automatic, back-in-time threat searches and individuation of past compromises. After digestion of cyber threat intelligence information and new Indicators of Compromise, SilentDefense will scan the last 3 months (or more depending on configuration) of system events and traffic to determine if the represented threats were previously seen within the ICS network.
• Extended network authentication analysis has been boosted to identify, monitor and correlate user behavior within the host network with anomalous activity. SilentDefense extends continuous detection of authenticated users on the network to open innovative investigation scenarios.
• Multi-factor file dissection effectively extracts and analyzes files using rule-based analysis, (such as YARA and proprietary malicious hashes) to conduct multi-module threat detection and enable quick remediation actions. Because of SecurityMatters’ IT/OT integration capability, users can send files to any 3rd party analysis technology for automatic active response.
• Enhanced ITL (industrial threat library) now includes vulnerability database and protocol support for over 1,600 ICS-specific threat indicators, vulnerabilities and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs). In addition, SilentDefense supports over 100 IT/OT protocols.

“We boosted SilentDefense with some new powerful features tailored to our global customer base, developed with innovative technical solutions aimed at bringing industrial cyber resilience to the next level,” said Damiano Bolzoni, SecurityMatters chief executive and co-founder.
