Providers of real-time process control / supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technologies expect to improve the security of technology offerings, providing users with more integrated cyber-security solutions, using a partnership program launched by Industrial Defender Inc. The move should help with regulatory compliance in utilities and other industries, the company suggests.

The Industrial Defender Enabled Partner Program will enhance cyber security protection and create value for participating industry vendors through integrated technologies, co-marketing, and demand-generation programs, the company says. Partners can leverage Industrial Defender's Defense in Depth approach to cyber security, which includes network security professional services, cyber security technology, and managed security services.

Two levels of participation are available for technology providers, the company explains. As an Industrial Defender Enabled Partner, providers complete a technology validation process that will enable a partner device to be monitored by the Industrial Defender Security Event Management (SEM) console, enhancing the cyber security of the process control/SCADA network. The SEM console can monitor devices on the real-time process control/SCADA network.

Vendors also can become Industrial Defender Enabled Premier Partners to deliver a more extensive technology integration of devices, including monitoring and management by the SEM console, co-marketing, demand-generation, and solution-selling by combining Industrial Defender's cyber security technology, network security professional services, and managed security services with premier partner technologies.

CSE-Semaphore, an IP-based SCADA RTU provider, is the first technology provider to join the Industrial Defender Enabled Partner Program.

RuggedCom, a provider of communications networking for mission-critical applications, has joined the Industrial Defender Enabled Premier Partner Program.
