Aveva partners with Virsec to strengthen defence against targeted cyberattacks

By Gerald Ondrey |

Aveva Plc (Cambridge, U.K.; www.aveva.com) has signed a partnership agreement with Virsec (San Jose, Calif.; www.virsec.com), whereby Aveva customers gain access to in-memory cyber protection for Industrial Control (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Virsec’s patented technology can reduce risks posed by targeted cyberattacks across IT and OT systems.

Digital transformation at industrial and engineering organizations has prompted a renewed focus on securing digital assets. As Information Technology (IT) systems and Operations Technology (OT) converge, an increase in high-profile attacks targeting critical infrastructure has raised security concerns. Virsec Trusted Execution provides an effective layer of protection against these advanced attacks by ensuring applications perform only as designed.

Earlier this year (January 30), a partnership with Cylance was also announced to provide end-point protection to Aveva’s industrial software portfolio. This protection — combined with the complementary in-memory security protection enabled by Virsec — strengthens the overall security of Aveva’s industrial software portfolio.
