Singapore: Industrial automation solutions provider DNR Process Solutions is expanding its offerings to include industrial cybersecurity with an exclusive partnership with Kaspersky Labs, a global leader in enterprise IT security.
As an exclusive partner, DNR now has the capability to offer Kaspersky Industrial Cyber Security (KICS) to its clients across South East Asia. KICS is a portfolio of technologies and services designed to secure truly industrial layers and elements of organisation – including SCADA servers, HMI panels, engineering workstations, PLCs, network connections and even engineers – without impacting on operational continuity and consistency of the technological process.
KICS adopts a holistic approach to industrial cybersecurity, taking into account the process, people and technologies. It’s not an out-of-the-box solution for cybersecurity; rather it offers business solutions based on unique technologies that are specifically designed for industrial security needs.
To ensure the highest levels of protection from all attack vectors, security on the industrial floor should operate at both node and network levels. KICS is controlled via a single management console, Kaspersky Security Centre that enables optimal control, ease of management and visibility. This centralised management capability ensures ease of control and visibility not only of the industrial layers at multiple sites, but across the surrounding business floors too.
“We are excited about venturing into this extremely important area of industrial cybersecurity, which is only going to get even more important as we settle into the era of Internet of Everything from the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT),” said Dinesh Sharma, CEO of DNR Process Solutions.
“As increasingly sophisticated security threats attack even the slightest vulnerabilities and transfer between business systems and control systems, it is critical for industrial enterprises to protect all their infrastructure. With DNR’s deep knowledge of Industrial Control Systems and our partnership with Kaspersky, we are ideally positioned to provide end-to-end industrial automation solutions that integrate robust IT security solutions.
“Choosing the right advisor and technology partner for industrial cybersecurity has never been more important than now, and we are confident that DNR is equipped to fill that role.”
