The advances in network and enterprise security made in recent years are critically important to critical infrastructure, from power grid networks to industrial control systems. Next-generation security technologies, such as application aware firewalls, intrusion prevention and detection systems, whitelisting, security event monitoring, and correlation of multiple sources of information can provide near real-time detection and response to cyber attacks occurring anywhere across critical infrastructure.
Today’s threat landscape requires a fully-deployed, layered security strategy with integrated security products, management, and intelligence to enable stronger countermeasures and enhanced situational awareness to make security actionable for operators.
Critical infrastructure vulnerability is why, with our affiliates McAfee and Wind River, we are taking a “security connected” approach. Across every platform and every connection: from chip to cloud, smartphones and tablets, sensors to data centers, and beyond. We are moving security from discrete solutions to an integrated approach as pervasive as computing itself.
