Partnership With Trust Automation Provides New Industrial Cybersecurity Solution

We’re excited to announce our partnership with Trust Automation on a next-generation cybersecurity platform that can detect and mitigate cyberattacks on the industrial control systems that run energy, water, transportation and industrial infrastructure.

The platform builds on our SerialTap™ sensor that passively monitors the serial communications used by many of the world’s industrial control systems. SerialTap™ can now pass the monitored traffic to Trust’s Autonomic Intelligent Cyber Sensor (AICS)—a machine learning system that uses autonomic computing techniques, fuzzy-logic algorithms and a service-oriented architecture to identify and counter malicious network traffic in real time.

SerialTap™ and AICS already provide independent cybersecurity solutions, but the integration of both technologies now lets us solve more extensive challenges using advanced techniques in anomaly detection and behavioral analysis.

SerialTap™ and AICS separately won prestigious R&D 100 Awards—SerialTap™ in 2017 and AICS for 2018. Both also started as applied research and development efforts by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Laboratories. Their commercialization is the result of the Transition-to-Practice (TTP) Program—an initiative run by Dr. Nadia Carlsten at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that identifies new technologies with national security applications.
