Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 17, 2014
On March 17th, the control system cyber security company Dragos Security LLC announced the beginning of Beta testing for their flagship product – CyberLens®. CyberLens® is a suite of tools that enable passive discovery and identification of cyber assets and data on control system networks.
“Normally, identifying assets can be difficult or impossible on sensitive networks because network mapping generally involves active scanning.” stated Dragos Security Co-Founder Robert M. Lee “active scanning can damage or deny service to sensitive network-enabled devices.”
In the Industrial Control System (ICS) community some of the sensitive devices include Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) which are vital to critical infrastructure such as energy, transportation and water utilities.
ICS asset owners and operators are challenged to maintain constant visibility in to what is on their network and how it is speaking. CyberLens® enhances satisfying compliance standards such as North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) through cyber asset and communication link identification. The suite of tools can also be used to identify changes in system connectivity and communication links using it's timeline feature serving as a strategic asset for incident responders. “Understanding your network and having a current map of what assets are on it down to the type of data flows is security. Knowledge of the network is a foundational element security teams should have over the adversaries,” said Co-Founder Matthew E. Luallen.
CyberLens® gives an unmatched view into the network and has optional customizable security features to meet the needs of the user.
CyberLens® features include:
EMPOWERING OTHERS WITH THE TOOLS AND RESEARCH FOR SUCCESS
Co-Founders Justin Cavinee, Jon Lavender, Robert M. Lee, and Matt Luallen created Dragos Security LLC in August 2013. Each of the members recognized the importance of control systems to the security of critical infrastructure and decided to pool their experience and passion into creating a company that could assist the global community. As academics, developers, and operators the team members knew first hand what it means to develop and research products the community needs. The desire of the team was thus to create effective products and provide well thought out research that enabled the community to better achieve security, availability, and reliability.
