Cyolo Partners with Dragos to Unveil Holistic Secure Remote Access Solution for Critical Infrastructure

Share

Cyolo, the secure remote access company for operational technology (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS), today announced a strategic partnership with Dragos, a global leader in cybersecurity for ICS/OT. Under the umbrella of Cyolo’s CyoloVerse partner program, Cyolo's PRO Secure Remote Access Platform will work with Dragos’s industry-leading OT cybersecurity platform. This collaboration will provide organizations with a robust and interoperable solution to protect their critical infrastructure against cyber threats.

New technology implementations in ICS/OT environments pose unique risks for critical infrastructure. Today’s risks include lack of support for modern authentication or connectivity methods in traditional environments, connecting existing infrastructure with highly vulnerable end-of-life operating systems, or risk of breaches from third-party remote access.

This interoperability is designed to provide OT customers visibility and management of their asset inventory and enhance asset vulnerability detection and remediation capabilities through a seamless secure controlled access platform.

“Cyolo ICS/OT security and safety expertise are changing the way organizations understand secure remote access,” said Matt Cowell, VP of Business Development at Dragos. “With our companies’ complementary capabilities and unique strengths, we can manage security through the different layersof the operational environment and protect a wider array of organizations across critical infrastructure. Ultimately reducing risk as they expand connectivity.”

Bringing the Cyolo PRO platform alongside the Dragos OT-native network visibility and monitoring offerings gives an unparalleled advantage. The Dragos Platform enables organizations to scale protection, the threat intelligence to keep on top of current threats, and the tools to respond quickly to incidents. With Cyolo’s robust role-based access, application, and policy control, in the future the Dragos Platform will be able to manage Cyolo’s Identity-based parameters (users, applications, resources, policy) in accordance with SOC / IR policies and guidelines.

Together Cyolo and Dragos deliver a comprehensive ICS/OT security framework based on the five critical controls of effective ICS/OT security:

  • ICS incident response—which integrates operational insights into incident handling, enhancing system integrity and recovery (Dragos)
  • Defensible architecture—ensuring robust visibility, segmentation, and enforcement mechanisms to bridge technological and human aspects of security (Dragos and Cyolo PRO)
  • ICS network visibility monitoring—employing continuous monitoring and protocol-aware tools to detect and address potential vulnerabilities (Dragos)
  • Remote Access Security—ensuring safe and secure stringent access control in the face of evolving hybrid work environments (Cyolo PRO)
  • Risk-based vulnerability management—prioritizing and addressing vulnerabilities based on their potential to pose significant operational risks, thereby ensuring proactive prevention, response, and recovery actions (Dragos and Cyolo PRO)

The solution plans to integrate Cyolo PRO and the Dragos Platform through an API architecture or operator console. It will deliver unsurpassed visibility and control of critical digital assets through secure identity-based access. Together, both companies will deliver simpler, stronger, and more efficient security controls that lay the foundation for Zero Trust (NIST 800-207).

“With this industry leading partnership, Cyolo joins Dragos to address security and operational challenges impacting OT environments," said Joe O’Donnell, EVP Corporate Development and OT GM at Cyolo. “The interoperability of the Dragos Platform and Cyolo PRO provides OT practitioners and industrial organizations with the full spectrum of cybersecurity services across the 5 ICS/OT Critical Controls. The timing could not be better as the world aggressively embraces Industry 4.0.”

Dino Busalachi, CTO and Co-Founder at Velta Technology - a joint partner - also highlighted that “In light of the surge in cyber threats, the growing adoption of Industry 4.0, and the inherent risks within OT environments, Velta Technology understands the critical need to partner with Cyolo and Dragos. Their joint solutions will provide our customers in the industrial sector with a tailored approach that strengthens their access security and elevates their overall security posture.”

Dragos and Cyolo respond to the need for secure industrial networks without disrupting operations, compromising safety or risking non-compliance.

The Dragos Platform offers the most effective industrial cybersecurity technology, giving customers visibility into their ICS/OT assets, vulnerabilities, threats, and response actions. The strength behind the Dragos Platform comes from Dragos’s ability to codify industry-leading OT threat intelligence, and insights from the Dragos services team into the software.

New Poll Shows Three Quarters of Smokers Believe Vaping Misinformation30.5.2024 11:20:00 CEST | Press release

The global network We Are Innovation has today published the results of a poll showing a staggering three-quarters of smokers wrongly believe vaping is just as harmful as smoking. Recent research conducted by Ipsos reveals that 74 percent of smokers worldwide believe that vaping is at least as harmful as smoking. This alarming Misperception Epidemic perpetuates a cycle of preventable illness and death, as individuals are deterred from switching to safer alternatives. The potential consequences of this are dire. Countries that have successfully reduced smoking prevalence have empowered smokers to access alternative products, such as vapes and nicotine pouches, accompanied by accurate information about their relative risks. Sweden has lowered smoking rates to 5.6 percent, just above the threshold at which a country becomes officially “smoke-free.” At the same time, New Zealand, which has more recently adopted smoke-free alternative products, has slashed smoking prevalence to 6.5 percent

New Tholos Foundation Report Reveals Flavour Bans Threaten Europe's Smoke-Free Ambition30.5.2024 11:15:00 CEST | Press release

The Tholos Foundation, an international non-governmental organization dedicated to advocating for consumers, today launched three white papers exposing the risks of banning flavours in vaping products at an event in Brussels hosted by Parliament Magazine and featuring contributions from Swedish MEP Johan Nissinen. The reports cover the impact of flavour bans in the real world, best practices to educate adult smokers and restrict underage usage, and analyse the public response to the European Commission’s 2023 public consultation. Surveys commissioned by the Tholos Foundation and conducted by Ipsos in multiple countries have shown that a significant majority of vapers use flavours other than tobacco to help reduce and quit smoking. Notably, 83% of vapers in Germany stated that flavours are crucial in their decision to vape, with similar high percentages reported in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Sweden. The research also showed that, in countries where flavours were banned, many vapers w
