PROTECT SCADA SYSTEMS FROM CYBER–ATTACKS

The utilities industry – electric power, water, and waste treatment – is a target for cyber–attacks with potentially devastating effects in the event of a prolonged outage.

Utilities providers need to protect critical infrastructure from attacks, as well as prevent valuable intellectual property from being stolen. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are the backbone of utilities networks, but often contain critical vulnerabilities and lack basic security controls. Increasingly, SCADA devices are connected to the internet, further increasing the risk of an attack.

Average number of security incidents detected per day by utilities companies in 2014, a six–fold increase over 2013.

What really pushed us over the top were the phishing capabilities that Metasploit includes… That was the real business driver for us.

Reduce exposure to critical threats

Reduce exposure to critical threats

Vulnerabilities and configuration issues in SCADA systems can lead to a full–scale breach. Nexpose makes it easy to identify and prioritize critical risks across your organization without disrupting day–to–day operations. After remediation, you can use Metasploit to simulate an attack and verify the effectiveness of your controls.

Intruders are able to stay undetected on networks for an average of 205 days (Mandiant Threat Report 2015). During this time, attackers are looking for valuable information to exfiltrate. Monitor activity from the endpoint to the cloud with UserInsight, enabling you to quickly detect an attack and stop the breach before damage is done.
