Telent, KORAMIS and SecurityMatters Announce Strategic Partnership to Power Up Industrial Cybersecurity

Backnang/Saarbrücken, September 6, 2018. – telent GmbH,  a company of the euromicron Group, and its subsidiary KORAMIS, which specialises in cybersecurity, have entered into a strategic partnership with SecurityMatters, the global leader in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) network assessment and protection and the provider of SilentDefense, the award-winning ICS  cybersecurity solution for critical infrastructures and industries.  

Nowadays, critical assets owners – e.g. power stations, water and gas plants as well as traffic and transport authorities – increasingly have to protect their ICT infrastructures against cyber attacks. Industrial control systems (ICS) and SCADA components (supervisory control and data acquisition), which are responsible for collecting and processing operating data for controlling plants, are particularly at risk.  

Leading cybersecurity standards for industrial control systems emphasize that systems operators should have cybersecurity monitoring solutions in place to protect from cyber attacks and operational threats. 

SilentDefense™ is an automatic, passive monitoring solution that provides comprehensive asset inventory and analyzes the behaviors of network users and connected devices to identify process anomalies, machinery status, insecure access and protocols, and potential malicious activity. SilentDefense leverages patented machine-learning capabilities to monitor ICS network, protocols, and semantics, thus providing more comprehensive data than competing technologies. In addition, SilentDefense combines this machine learning with the largest industrial protocols compatibility (40 and counting), a vast Industrial Threat Library, complete with over 1,300 ICS-specific checks, and an extensive customer protection program, to deliver timely, actionable updates regarding new threats. The solution provides seamless integration across an organization’s entire enterprise ecosystem, including security information and event management (SIEM) solutions (e.g., Splunk and QRadar), IT asset management systems (e.g., Skybox Security, ForeScout Technologies, Leidos, and Cisco), and most firewall applications. 

Fully integrated solution from a single source 

In particular, telent has extensive practical experience as a system integrator and specialist in the planning, installation and operation of ICT systems in the area of critical infrastructures. KORAMIS can also draw on its expertise as a specialist for fully integrated solutions in cybersecurity, automation, process and network control technology. The nationwide presence and the 24/7 service organisation of telent guarantee fast response times for customer support. 

"telent and KORAMIS have extensive know-how in critical infrastructures and industrial plants and, as such, know their requirements in terms of security. SecurityMatters provides the perfect complement with its SilentDefense solution, which completes our portfolio", says Nico Werner, Head of Cybersecurity at telent.
