Siemens and the Norwegian industrial cybersecurity company Secure-NOK signed a partnership agreement to integrate new cybersecurity solutions within the Ruggedcom portfolio of rugged network components and to supplement the Siemens Industrial Security portfolio. The combination of Siemens industrial experience and Secure-NOK’s technology, built and offered solely for industrial purposes, is intended to offer a flexible solution for infrastructure in industries such as Power Utilities, Oil &Gas installations, Transportation Systems and others with a growing need to protect against cyber threats.
Secure-NOK offers SNOK, a scalable, distributed, small data solution designed to perform local detection of malware, espionage, sabotage or other harmful cyber- events. SNOK is designed to be implemented on industrial sites, running on hardware with limited computing power.
Secure-NOK and Siemens joint offering will include interoperability with following products:
- SNOK Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) on the Ruggedcom RX1500 with Ruggedcom APE to monitor the network to detect intrusions. NIDS comes in basic, small, medium and large deployments depending on size of the network. The Ruggedcom APE is a utility-grade computing platform that plugs directly into any member of the Ruggedcom RX1500 family and makes it possible to run third party software applications without procuring an external industrial PC.
- SNOK Cybersecurity Monitoring System monitors both the network and endpoints (hosts) to detect intrusions. This solution comes in small and large deployments depending on size of network and number of hosts to be monitored.
- SNOK Enterprise Solution for monitoring of multiple sites from control centers. Includes SNOK Cybersecurity Monitoring System (CSM) as standard.
This partnership allows for the combination of product lines from both companies to create security appliances uniquely adapted to infrastructure in industries such as Power Utilities, Oil &Gas installations, Transportation Systems, including in remote and harsh environments. Siemens and Secure-NOK are committed to bringing a new level of cybersecurity offerings to their customers and to continue developing together to meet future needs in modern days fast changing threat landscape.
