CyberX, Check Point to secure industrial networks

CyberX and Check Point® Software Technologies (NASDAQ: CHKP) have partnered to secure mission critical networks in the industrial arena, the companies said.

The joint offering delivers a high-level of protection with a proactive security solution ensuring industrial networks security.

Cyber Security threats on industrial networks are materializing into successful attacks. Following the BlackEnergy malware attack that has recently hit the Ukraine Power Company, it became clear that overcoming the challenges of securing operational networks is a pressing need more than ever.

Integrating CyberX´s flagship platform XSense with Check Point´s distributed security infrastructure brings operational network security to a new level. Supporting all industrial vendors and communications, the joint solution delivers much more than threat detection and mitigation and already garners interest with customers worldwide.

CyberX enables real-time detection of cyber and operational incidents by providing complete visibility into operational networks. It is a member of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and ICS-ISAC and was recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in Security for Technology and Service Providers, 2015.
