Certified Integration Delivers More Effective Threat Detection for Industrial Customers

HANOVER, MD – May 13, 2020 (NEWSWIRE.COM) — Dragos Inc., provider of the industrial sector’s most trusted asset identification, threat detection, and response platform and services, today announced that it has released an integration of the Dragos Platform with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager™, enabling customers to deploy more robust security solutions and better protect their assets from ever-evolving cyber threats.

The Dragos Platform for industrial cybersecurity employs threat behavior analytics to provide unparalleled detection of adversaries targeting industrial control systems (ICS). Furthermore, the Dragos threat behavior analytics map to the ICS-ATT&CK framework from MITRE, which is an ICS-specific threat behavior framework built to characterize the malicious activity found uniquely in operation technology (OT) environments. The integration between Dragos and McAfee is certified for release and provides complete visibility of IT and OT threats to simplify the response workflows for defenders. The initial release of the McAfee integration allows the Dragos Platform to share notifications with the McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (SIEM technology).

“As customer demand increases for more effective ICS security, there is a requirement that platforms better integrate and use the larger, more comprehensive data available from both IT and OT environments. The integration between McAfee and the Dragos Platform leverages the proven knowledge and expertise of both companies in detecting and responding to threats,” said Josh Carlson, Senior Business Development Manager of Dragos.

As a member of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance™, Dragos plays a critical role in the program’s mission to accelerate the development of interoperable security products and to simplify the integration of these products within complex customer environments, bringing better value and more protection against the growing threat landscape to joint customers. Through this partnership, Dragos and McAfee address a rising industry need to shorten response times from security events and more easily remediate compromised systems, leading to a simplified Threat Defense Lifecycle.

A key goal behind the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program is to accelerate the development of interoperable security products and simplify the integration of those products with complex customer environments,” said Javed Hasan, Global Head of Enterprise Products Strategy and Alliances, McAfee. “We’re thrilled to see Dragos leverage McAfee’s investment in its security risk management platform and extend this value to Dragos customers.”

The Dragos Platform integration with McAfee is available now. Interested parties are encouraged to learn more about the partnership at https://www.dragos.com/partners/mcafee/.
