Dragos Inc., a global leader in cybersecurity for industrial controls systems (ICS)/operational technology (OT) environments, today launched the new Dragos QRadar Device Support Module, which integrates with IBM security information and event management (SIEM) technology to improve visibility and detection of both information technology (IT) and OT threats. This new technology integration between Dragos Platform and IBM Security QRadar is available today, allowing defenders to leverage both technologies to improve visibility and detection across IT and OT networks.
Threats to industrial operations are increasing in frequency and sophistication, driving an executive-level response to manage associated risks. This requires security leaders to develop a strategy to ensure a program covers both traditional IT threats and emerging OT threats.
The Dragos Platform is a passive monitoring technology designed to provide OT networks with enhanced visibility of assets and threats observed in industrial environments. The Dragos Platform will now integrate with IBM Security QRadar SIEM technology, which analyzes data across an organization’s users, endpoints, clouds, applications, and networks in real-time to identify potential security threats.
Leveraging QRadar’s open application programming interfaces (APIs), the Dragos QRadar Device Support Module (DSM) is certified for release and allows Dragos and IBM customers to manage and triage threats detected across enterprise and operational networks. The new technology integration simplifies the process for security teams looking to expand existing security operations to include OT network visibility.
Furthermore, over recent months, Dragos’s experienced OT threat intelligence team has been undertaking joint research with the IBM X-Force threat intelligence team, focused on the impact of ransomware across industrial operations, which is available through a co-authored white paper available for download.
“We see this collaboration with IBM technology and the X-Force Team as a valuable step toward dramatically improving visibility and response across the entire IT/OT network,” said Clayton Coleman, Senior Business Development Manager of Dragos. “We are excited to work with IBM on joint threat research and to expand these shared technology integrations to help our customers to protect their OT systems.”
The Dragos QRadar Device Support Module (DSM) is available to the security community through IBM Security App, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies. As threats are evolving faster than ever, collaborative development amongst the security community will help organizations adapt quickly and speed innovation in the fight against cybercrime.
