Tenable, Inc has acquired Indegy Ltd, an industrial cybersecurity firm which provides visibility, security and control across operational technology (OT) environments. The transaction was completed on December 2 for $78 million in cash.
Amit Yoran, chairman and CEO of Tenable said the acquisition will deliver a unified, risk-based view of IT and OT security. “Indegy extends our depth of OT expertise and intelligence, and our breadth of OT-specific capabilities from vulnerability management to asset inventory, configuration management and threat detection. We look forward to working with the Indegy team to help the industry usher in the next wave of IT/OT convergence.”
“When we started Indegy we set out on a mission to protect industrial networks through a mix of cybersecurity expertise and hands-on OT experience, developing products which solve the hardest industrial cybersecurity challenges,” said Barak Perelman, co-founder and CEO, Indegy. “We are excited to accelerate this mission by joining Tenable.”
The frequency of OT attacks increasing and the impact of an OT security event can have a material effect on business operations spanning beyond information leakage to equipment damage, safety concerns for employees, or a major environmental incident. A recent survey by the Ponemon Institute and Siemens found that the majority of respondents viewed cyber threats to be a greater risk to OT environments than to IT.
Modern OT environments increasingly interconnect with IT as companies consolidate their operational data to optimize costs and accelerate innovation. The result is a complex, sensitive and vastly expanded attack surface for Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) to manage, often without visibility into OT environments.
Tenable and Indegy will provide risk-based measurement, a unified view of IT and OT vulnerabilities, OT environment intelligence, IT and OT vulnerability assessment, and OT-specific process management.
The Indegy Industrial Cybersecurity Suite integration with Tenable.sc™, for vulnerability management, is available now and the Indegy integration with Tenable.io®, for cloud-based vulnerability management, and Tenable Lumin will be available in the first half of 2020.
