CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, today announced the company’s participation in the GE Digital Alliance Program, a partnership of companies dedicated to growing the digital industrial ecosystem. At the same time, the company announced that its industrial cybersecurity platform has been installed in GE Power’s integration environment to support joint GE and CyberX customers with interoperability validation testing.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is unlocking new levels of productivity, helping organizations improve safety, increase output, and maximize revenue. At the same time, digitalization is driving deployment of billions of IIoT devices and increased connectivity between IT and Operational Technology (OT) networks, increasing the attack surface and risk of dangerous cyberattacks on industrial control systems.
According to Ruggero Contu, Gartner Senior Director Analyst, “The mounting number of attacks is evidence that the likelihood of breach is real and serious. While financial loss as a result of attacks can be significant, it is the impact to safety and reliability that is of greatest concern to most.”
