About Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security Solutions
Industrial Control Systems Security (ICS security) is defined as the ability of organizations to secure their automation processes and related critical information from cyber intrusions for uninterrupted and sustained productivity of utilities, grids, transportation systems, and manufacturing plants. Industrial Control Systems cover various types of control systems used in industries for operations. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Distributed Control System (DCS), and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) are used to remotely manage critical industrial infrastructures from a central control room. Securing these systems has become a major concern in the present age of advanced persistent threats, such as Stuxnet and Havex RAT. The highly sophisticated and severe nature of these threats is prompting various security solution providers to customize their offerings according to industry demand.
Industrial Control Systems security software and solutions consist of a compressive array of technologies such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS), antivirus/anti-malware, firewall, virtualization security, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), SCADA encryption, Unified Threat Management (UTM), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Identity and Access Management (IAM), and others. Professional services for ICS security include offerings from primary operational support to entire lifecycle management services.
Major industries utilizing ICS security include the manufacturing, power, transportation & logistics, and energy & utilities industries. ICS security helps electricity and power companies meet the challenges of aging grid infrastructure, monitor power system operation, maintain balance between power generation and production, and provide a fast and efficient way to restore services after interruptions. Cybersecurity for manufacturing and control systems include security against physical attacks or cyberattacks on computer systems and their support systems.
